“This is truly epic horror. Plus, the voicework is brilliant” – The Guardian

The podcast is heavy, atmospheric. Things are dark, and grim, and delivered through a mix of dialogue and fierce narration. It’s a moody tale, following many different strands of the vicissitudes of faith. Personal faith, driving journeys in life, and corporate faith, with people working together to make things as terrible as possible. And something in the background – the insidious faith that comes over the airwaves. It’s a tale I recommend you listen to. 5 Stars”. – The Cambridge Geek
