Brilliant, weird, thought provoking.. best in its field
I just finished episode 6 and barely know where to begin. the best script and voice acting of any podcast in its field. I laughed, I cried, I felt deep relation to the characters and also disgusted by them (a reflection of the compassion and mistrust I feel for my own thoughts & behaviors). I felt freedom and also discomfort. Listen to this podcast.. it opens the door to ponder existential questions about love, commitment, the purpose of it all.. its weird and it will make you feel emotions all over the spectrum. Love the work of KP and the shadows team!
This show is a beautiful piece of art work, a little different than anything of the same format, so don’t try to listen in passing. I think the perspective of the main character is very authentic, the whole piece is vulnerable in a lot of ways. It sliced through my judgement and made me feel a part of something, just like a good old 80’s sitcom. More please!!
just binged this entire season in a day.
loved the duration of it all! thank you for the entertainment and thoughts about love!!
