Excellent historical story telling!! Well produced and researched. Keep it up!!
The production quality is outstanding! The stories told thus far are original, informative, and often moving. The Garrett episode had me almost in tears, and the Halloween episode was terrifying (great sound effects). I cannot wait to see what they turn out next!
The best of history and technology!
As a lover of Indiana history I am thrilled with this awesome use of technology to bring history to life. Keep up the good work!
