Pretty darn good…

Once I got into it, listened all the way through…. A few good plot twists, some more obvious, some not so much. Voice acting and dialogue were top notch, had me laughing more than once. Great production too.

Definitely worth a try…

A Fun Listen!

The cast is fantastic in this podcast. There will without a doubt be someone in this cast that you will recognize. I've been listening while working the last few days and it's just a really fun listen! The story is fresh! The banter between the characters will make you chuckle. Aisha Dee shines as the lead in this. Her voice acting is as expressive as her on-screen acting which is absolutely wonderful. Overall this podcast has a little something enjoyable for all ages!
