The soundscape is incredible… multidimensional characters you both love and hate sometimes at the same time. Imelda gives Umbridge vibes “shivers.” The narration style is so smooth. I thought I’d find it difficult switching among narrators but it’s like warmed butter. Who are these people and how...Read full review »

How do I describe Midst? It’s actually very enjoyable. It’s got 3 narrators who all take turns saying a couple of sentences, then they switch. The interesting thing is that all 3 share all of the voices. It should be a right confusing mess but somehow it works. 🤷🏻‍♀️ The first episode is a bit...Read full review »

Incredible podcast with three superb storytellers. Got hooked immediately on from the get go; fantastic world, great characters, really paining the nooks and crannies as well as the grand sweep of their story. The trio play off each other wonderfully, in character and out.

Can’t heap enough praise on.
Brian105 via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/01/22
The best audio fiction I’ve ever listened to. Thrilling. Creative. Amazingly presented. Midst is set in its own unique and compelling universe. I cannot wait to hear season three.
eleanorb via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/01/22
The Trust is coming soon, if it’s not here already. It’s great to see a podcast taking on the leftist agenda like this. ESG, social credit scores, call it what you want but this is a great parable for leftism taken to its natural conclusion. Happy to see not all podcasts have been captured by...Read full review »

Midst is dripping in cool science fantasy, lovely voiced storytellers, and exciting stories. Midst is an easy recommendation from me.

Midst is a fantastically twisted and stunningly decorated Labyrinth of of a story set in an equally stunning universe, with an foundation of absolutely perfectly woven and conceptualized allegorical social commentary
hikingdragon42 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/05/22
This show is so fantastic! The story line, the characters and the production is all great. The narrators have a unique style I have not heard before. Love it when a new episode pops up in my feed. Its up there with the production quality of many big budget BBC radio shows. Thanks guys
Simusio via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/22/22
One of the best fictional podcasts I’ve had the pleasure of listening to. The story, the narration, the characters…they’ve obviously put a lot of work into this, and it shows. The wait for season 2 was painful, but worth it. Give it a try, you won’t regret it.
Chumpess via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/21/22
Midst is an incredible tale told by three phenomenally talented individuals. The way they rotate through as they tell the story, even for the same characters, is inventive and so so effective. They are a well-oiled machine of storytelling and they only get better as the show goes on. Speaking of...Read full review »

Midst is so original, and cool, and well done I think it is probably the best piece of media in general that I’ve encountered in the past decade or two

With the finest, most well delivered narration. Unlike so much of its ilk, it's very well written.Read full review »

The three-voice narration threw me for a moment, but the story quickly became a deeply immersive, imaginative, and engrossing world. The sound design, originality and overall quality of this podcast is... it’s so good I can’t find the words to describe it... More, please!
moppet_mi via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/20/21
What a fantastic podcast. The storytelling is unique and incredibly original, the plot is fascinating and riveting, the narrators are great... excellent sound design, you really feel immersed in the story. Everyone should listen to this podcast!

I love the story, but what really makes this sooo good, is the narration style. Love your work!
Heidijoy70 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 11/07/21
My cousin recommended this to me. He has great taste and I always check out whatever he is watching or listening too. This show is indescribably unbelievably good. The story is mesmerizing. I love the voice acting. The characters are intriguing. The sense of humor adds so much to all of it. I...Read full review »

In terms of story, creativity, world building, characters, voice acting, pacing, use of the podcast genre, and sound design—this is one of the best podcasts out there!

This is so far head and shoulders above most other fiction podcasts it’s crazy. This is a genuinely new form of storytelling. Incredible production, incredible acting, incredible drama. And this is the ideal form for it. Your imagination meets theirs halfway. Bravo.
Eli Sessions via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 10/15/21
The last episode, Weather was so good omg this podcast is honestly amazing. The originality, writing, voice acting, sound effects/quality, it’s more than a podcast.

Great story. The narration is stellar. One of my favorite podcasts.
AlicWv via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/13/21
I am so excited Midst is back! There is nowhere else to experience storytelling in quite this way, with a wry hipster Greek chorus who tells/constructs/performs/interprets the world of Midst and its characters, and you hang on their every word even while you question their reliability and...Read full review »

Been waiting for this to happen. E:1 does not disappoint! I am looking forward to more promised content & will be doing a deeper dive. If there were ever a podcast deserving of 5 stars, this one is it. Well done 3rd! I tip my hat to u.
Knucklewood McChipperlips via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/30/21
It’s characterful, incredibly well paced, clever characters, and one of the only fiction podcasts my partner can stand to listen to because the pacing is just so tight and well-judged. Also the most interesting twist on an economic system in a sci-fi/fantasy setting I’ve encountered maybe ever?...Read full review »

This is one of the most enjoyable podcasts I’ve heard. The narration is tight, compelling, amusing, and like nothing else.

I’m enjoying this one quite a bit. I’ve gone to the website too to learn about the characters.
Kik&D via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/07/21
Incredible sci fi/western tale about interstellar colonizers, greedy corporations, mysterious hunters, charismatic nightclub owners, and the moon that is about to break apart and fall on top of all of them. The three narrators brilliantly bring these characters and this world to life. Don’t miss...Read full review »

Intensely weird and wonderful world building, amazing voice acting, and absolutely fantastic characters. One of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to.
Bigrigg47 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/03/21
This became my favourite podcast within the first episode. That’s a very tall order, too
russetss via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/25/21
The narrators are compelling. The first several episodes confused me in that they don’t conclude. Keep listening, the characters are meticulously laid out and then the action begins. I couldn’t believe I binged the whole thing. Cannot wait for July for Season 2!
NannaSage via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/06/21
The production quality is amazing as well as the story. I listen to podcasts to sleep. Midst didn’t help me sleep at all. I ended up finishing the whole first season in a single night, I couldn’t stop listening.

A must-listen for any fan of The Magnus Archives or Welcome to Night Vale. Amazing, utterly unique narration style (the voice acting skills are second to none), unforgettable characters with fleshed out stories and clear motivations - it’s truly the crème de la crème of fiction podcasting.

An absolutely incredible podcast. This is the sort of thing that only comes once in a century, and it’s made me feel in ways that barely any other media can. If you can, if you’re interested, and if you’re ready for it; Listen. To. This.

This is the best discovery ever! So immersive, amazing storytelling, top notch audio and music quality - one you have to experience.

Wonderfully creative storytelling.
Accesette via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/27/21
This podcast is absolutely delightful, and the style of narration makes it even better. I’ve not heard it done as such before, and I truly adore having the three different people narrate. Really, /really/ looking forward to season 2, I can’t wait for July :D
Last minute cook via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/13/21
Midst’s quirky, dystopian fantasy style will be particularly appealling to folks who appreciate writers such as Paolo Bacigalupi. I loved it. The podcast’s production values are high, and I really enjoyed the way the two narrators played off each other. They’re both extremely talented, have...Read full review »
HappyGenny via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 01/08/21
I’ll admit the narration style caught me off guard for the first few minutes, but after that I found myself loving it and longing for more. Great story, great music, great atmosphere. Can’t wait for season 2.
Alpskier88 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/02/21
This is everything i love about sci-Fi. Space knights and pirates, other-worldly settings, an imaginative plot with super cool ‘characters’, and everything backed by a to die for soundscape, reminds me soo much of shows like The Expanse or Firefly. What i love most are three narrators and the...Read full review »
AkintomideO via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/24/20
Just binged first season and must say one of the best audio dramas I have come across. Very talented voice actors, gripping storyline and accompanying music all add to make this a first class audio drama. Hope Season 2 is not long in coming. diamondsparkle1
twigletsaregreattoeat via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/13/20
The three narrators juggle their words elegantly, tossing the story back and forth, letting the tension rise as they rapid-fire the lines. The liner notes (so to speak) are a delight. They provide a peek into the world of Midst that the audio drama itself can’t provide. The sound effects are...Read full review »
Auxarcian via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/08/20
From the moment you start listening, the narrators of Midst are toying with you. Good naturedly, but toying none the less. The storytelling is reminiscent of an improvisational style except it's too detailed to possibly have been so. The whole thing is accompanied by a rich soundscape and...Read full review »

I had thought this was going to be a small production with a strange plot. Instead I got a beautiful and unique world, wonderful realistic characters, and some of my favorite narrators ever. I love the style of this show and the writing. I love the turns of the plot and vivid imagery. Just...Read full review »

This podcast blew me away. I haven't heard anything else like it before with the three delightfully mischeivous narrators thowing both the narration and the dialogue back and forth. The sound design and world-building is so rich.Read full review »

It’s a smidge confusing to follow when you start. But once you get going it get’s a lot easier to understand and suddenly you’re being sucked in to a rich world full of wonderful descriptions and epic storytelling. 5/5 can recommend!

Midst is amazing. Head and shoulders above any other podcast in creativity, voice acting and production value! Do not skip this podcast!
