High school senior Tanner Malone has bombed the Test, a high-stakes exam that establishes how much he owes for his corporate-funded education.

I don't know if it was because of how it was written, but I was getting lost sometimes during the scene transition. The story would jump from characters without having a clear break between scenes and I would have to rewind when I realize that the setting changed. It's a good story, but the transitions between scenes and characters made it a confusing one.

For what ever reason, the stories aren't in the order that they were recorded in, so it is a little confusing when they hint at the next episode that either already happened, or is so far down the line you'd forget. Other than that it's a good listen, The advertisement can be a little annoying at first, but there is a certain charm to the way that they did these advertisements back in the day that you just don't see anymore.
