        Not OP but like… Severely disabled people are already treated as parasites leeching off their caretakers. Just look at the public reaction when one is murdered by said caretaker (justifying, expressing horror at the idea of having to take care someone who can’t, etc) and things like “victims of autism”. A horror story about how a disabled person is LITERALLY leeching off his caretakers feels like an ugly echo of a thought a lot of people already hold. Granted this is my personal interpretation+why i personally think it was very hard to listen to, and am not saying it was your intention (tbh it PROBABLY wasn’t, a *lot* of this stuff is accidental because it’s so ingrained in our culture)
        It left a bitter taste in my mouth, and i think it might be what OP was referring to.
        It was well written tho.

      I’m going to venture a guess your Game of Thrones reference was lifted from the tv series as the critical lack of thought in your empty critique lacks any pensive insight most readers possess.

    I thought the first story was done really well. Compelling tale.

      I agree, I really don’t know why they keep bringing that writer back.

    The production and voice acting in Little White Lies in a Little Black Dress were outstanding. The writing though, was atrocious. Second worst story this season.

        a thing that someone says to cause amusement or laughter, especially a story with a funny punchline.

    This was a spectacular episode. Really shows off the varied scope of horror that the podcast tackles. Thank You For Calling and Pop Song were both particularly great examples of how the audio form can be used to create unique horror experiences, and the rest of the stories were super great with a lot of audience and tone variety. Great work, NSP team.

    Wow. Superb narration in ‘Burn’. My favorite story out of many favorites! The flow of the story is perfect.

    Forest Glen also gets a big check mark…creepy…real creepy scenes.

    The narrator of ‘Unusual Collection’ is better suited for Nancy Drew…stories for teen girls.

      I used to really enjoy her work but the rest of the cast has just gotten so good she’s been left behind. She was great before but can’t keep up with the rest of the crew now.
