    While I enjoy every show, I particularly loved this podcast. Great story, truly disturbing. Can’t wait to hear more. How often do the new podcasts get released? I am anxious for the next one!

    This is an incredible story. Very well written. Love the narration by Sammy Raynor as well. I hope he comes back again at some point. The music is great too. It suits the story well.

    I shudder at the realization that this is actually within the realm of possibilities. I would never forgive myself if that was my child. I wouldn’t have moved away from my house. I would have waited under it and killed the bastard.

    Sammy Raynor is a great narrator- all of these stories in these podcasts have been phenomenal! But some of the readers haven’t been ideal. Not to say they were terrible though! I appreciate the readers taking time to read these stories out loud! But Raynor did a great job. Hooray!

    I enjoyed every minute of listening to ‘Penpal’ part 1 and 2. Wonderfully written and the background music fit perfectly. I would love to hear more stories like this- I like longer stories to listen to so that I can feel like I’m truly in the story. Thanks for the great listen, I will have to look more into this story
