A fantastic quality "binge podcast"!

I played this podcast while working on an art project, and ended up dragging it out just so I could finish this podcast in one sitting. I liked the fact that the episodes were 30 minutes long, rather than 15-20. It made it easier to listen while working on projects without having to stop to go find the next episode.
It had a high production quality, making you feel like you were right there with the characters at their current location in the story. Rhea Seehorn did a phenomenal job with playing Sydney, and I'd love to hear her in more audible productions. (I am a fan of hers (Kim) in "Better Call Saul", although I didn't pay attention to the fact that she was in this production until after I started listening.) As a side note, I loved that her character had a comedic obsession with food. It reminded me of the detective partner (Pamela Reed) to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie "Kindergarten Cop".

The story line was a rabbit hole of sorts that kept moving at a great pace, without any dips or pauses. The ending of the story is a giant leap from where it started, yet it is tied together seamlessly. I did have to go back and listen to episode 10 again to be sure I caught everything in the ending. For me personally, it was an ending I had to sit on for a few minutes, but one that fits and does justice to the story.
It'd be remiss of me to not point out that this "cyber crimes" podcast cautions us with some of the potential, or even inevitable, dangers of our increasing AI technology.
Though I've been a long time Audible member and "devourer" of audiobooks, I believe this is the first review I've felt compelled to leave.

Surprisingly good for a free Amazon Original!

This is very well acted, very well scripted and has high production values. I'm only up to episode 5, but I know I'll want more when the series of 10 ends. I only wish this was in a more traditional full length format instead of being so episodic. And there's nothing else from the writer, Benjamin Walker, on Audible? I hope that changes soon! I will be happy to spend a credit on his next offering. This one was too good to be free.

Do you like when people talk to you with food in their mouth?

A significant amount of every episode is spent with the main character eating. She literally talks with food in her mouth. It’s very annoying.

An Intriguing Tech Mystery

This was a great drama. I had to warm up to it since most of it is in first person narrative and I am more used to full cast being full cast rather than supportive characters. I thought this might have worked a bit better with more other cast involvement. The tech implications are frightening and things don't turn out the way you expect. Great supporting cast and effects. The lead actress was wonderful, but there were far too many monologues that did slow the story down. She is also constantly eating throughout the entire drama. Another reviewer noted this as well, when she is narrating while eating it is annoying. Still a great listen and the conclusion leaves things open for a sequel.

Amazing performance by Rhea Seehorn.

I absolutely LOVED this. It's a great police procedural/mystery -- kept me interested and attentive all the way through to the end. But I especially LOVED the immediacy of Rhea Seehorn's performance as a modern detective taking notes via a digital device that immediately uploads to the cloud for her assistant. I think it's the best performance of any audiobook I've ever listened to. (And I'm no slouch on that front.) It's definitely better than most of the freebies Audible offers. I could absolutely believe that this story was happening in real time/real life. The fact that William Jackson Harper (Chidi from The Good Place) plays her assistant was frosting on the cake. I immediately went to find other books Rhea Seehorn read - I hope Audible picks up a lot more.

I have been a fan of Benjamen W. Podcast for years, and very pleased with this story that ventures more into the real world than costumary in his podcast. I found it very well written and his creative use of first person narrative for the main character is wonderfully done. It is epic and relevant in its theme and the cast lead by a great job by Rhea Seehorn do a great job to maintain the pace and build up the story. A very cool listen. Spoiler alert - love de Fr8&:@ rocket jet.
