Such good acting. Amazing production. Delightfully creepy! One of my top 5 favorite podcasts of all time. Cannot commend the creators enough for this work.

The Magnus Archives (TMA) is a delightfully horrific podcast, with an incredible meta-plot and many thought provoking questions naturally built into it. I myself tend not to enjoy horror as much as it triggers my insomnia, but this podcast manages to strike such a perfect spot in that you get to...Read full review »

This podcast IS amazing. The anthological aspected the earlier seasons very re playable. The first four seasons were great. In the fifth season however, had a VERY unique method of telling John and Martin’s story. This method, though very interesting and I praise the show runners for trying...Read full review »

I can’t believe I just finished this podcast. It’s one of the best... things... ever. Out of every movie, book, song... this was the best. It’s so interactive, though I’ve done nothing but listen. I feel like I’m there, the sounds letting me follow right along with the events! I love every...Read full review »

all of this podcast is amazing, but i wanted to point out the acting specifically, because it’s so good, especially for a podcast. everyone killed it!

Great pod cast!

The Magnus Archives is absolutely incredible, full of weird characters, strange happenings, and a plot that keeps you coming back for more. It quickly became my favorite show during 2020, and now that it’s over, I’ve already relistened to the whole thing once—and I’ll be back to do it again, too!

I absolutely cannot get enough of this podcast. I’ll never be able to find another one like it

i don’t think i’ve ever had a podcast cause me to feel so many emotions
smastorakis via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/29/21
To start off I’m quite late to this but this podcast is so good I had to write a review anyway. As a huge fan of gravity falls weirdly enough this scratched that itch except it’s genuinely scary. A must listen for any horror fan

I’m only on episode 42 right now, but I can confidently say that if you like horror you need to listen to this podcast. It starts out slow, but by episode 14 I was getting consistently terrified. When it isn’t being terrifying, this podcast does a great job at capturing your intrigue. The...Read full review »

I listen to podcasts all the time. I like horror, true crime or adventure/story podcasts. I never thought I’d find one with all of these and more. Definitely the best thing I’ve ever listened to!

Dear Jonny, Alex and the rest of the team. I am coming late to this party and hate spoilers, so am grateful to my children for recommending your brilliant podcast and for letting me explore it myself. I am 53 and I have been bombarded for the last two years by my children aged 21 to 15 saying how...Read full review »

This is the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. It’s been my favorite for years now and it just keeps getting better. If you like a bunch of the alphabet mafia goofing off and telling a truly beautiful story this is the podcast for you. Please just listen to it for me.
baddakid via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/23/21
One of the best podcasts I’ve ever encountered

No you don’t understand, I’m OBSESSED.

this show is incredible and ticks all the boxes i look for with media -lgbt characters -dark themes -engaging story
ethereal teeth via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/19/21
I adore this podcast. It’s so good, with the overarching plots, the relationships, the characters, the writing, everything. The way it took a bunch of seemingly unconnected statements and turned them into a beautiful story. Highly recommend.
myfailedships03 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/18/21
The first four seasons we amazing. The fifth season has a good narrative but the individual stories pulled too far away from stories and were more poetry. Still good but it is harder to listen to full episodes now.
Hokb via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 05/18/21
I have recommended this podcast to anyone who is willing to listen. The writing is engaging and frankly delightful. You come to love the characters as they come and go. The lines between good and bad swiftly move to bad and worse. My advice while listening is to enjoy the ride and spoil nothing....Read full review »

I’ve listened to dozens of horror podcasts and although many are very good, this one stands tall and vast above the rest. Fantastic writing, incredible character development, unmatched sound editing and a production team that’s worked tirelessly to bring us something beautiful and terrible during...Read full review »

This is one of the first Podcast I started listening to, hands down my favorite!!!!!! I could listen to if over and over for days and love all the characters! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Horror podcast. Haven’t found anything like it since
Dnick290 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/10/21
I loved this show so much, the stories are amazing and i love the characters so much. it is such a clever and interesting idea and i couldn't recommend it more. I'm still crying from the listening to the last episode today but the ending was honestly so good and i enjoyed listening to...Read full review »

Gorgeously written, delightfully dark, with the most lovely and talented voice actors who manage to balance earnest fear and emotion with unexpected moments of comedic levity every so often. Bingeable and compelling.
ursaborea via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/06/21
Love it! What more can I say, it’s great! Highly recommended 👌
SouthernGoesNorth via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/04/21
This podcast is honestly earth shattering. I started listening to this podcast quite hesitantly as I’m not partial to the gore associated with horror, but this is the kind of horror that doesn’t aim to shock you, it just sits with you. It makes you think about the world you live in and it is...Read full review »

I heard about this podcast as it had ended on an episode of Old Gods of Appalachia and was hooked from the very first episode. Well written, produced and narrated.
WhoaFlicka via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/02/21
I can’t write reviews without spoilers, but highly recommend. I actually started listening without knowing that it was a horror show and I’ve loved it so far. :)
elizak4 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/01/21
awesome story telling.
Transactasuars rex via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/21
As someone who thought the strengh of this podcast was in the short stories, I felt they stumbled on the ending when it came to tying up the overarching plot. The solution is crammed into the last few episodes, giving a rushed feeling, and the shift in storytelling format for season 5 was...Read full review »
Linzahhh via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/27/21
A dear friend suggested this for me and it has been the horror podcast I have longed for. Top shelf strange and scary stories, wonderful narration and voice acting and with both excellent setup and episodic narratives. A boon for all horror fans!
K.E.Thom via Apple Podcasts · Denmark · 04/26/21
These are SO GOOD! I am so sad I didn’t start listening sooner even though I subscribed a long time ago. The atmosphere, the narration and the format they have created to tell these stories are genius. I’m so intrigued to see if the files start to paint a bigger picture. Great work!
404-ensics via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/26/21
I know I’m late in finding this, but after searching for a good horror podcast, I am so glad I found this. Just starting season 2 and it’s really well put together. As well as a horror anthology, it’s great to see the recurring storylines and the added mystery elements...I can’t wait to see what...Read full review »

These words are delicious. Savor them as one of their beloved audience. Regret will only brush your cheek when the end comes, but ends are beginnings, so revel in your feast, and don’t concern yourself with the last course. Bon appetit, to my newest fellow member, of their beloved audience.
nom_nom_nom_de_plum via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/24/21
Eh
I would recommend listening up until 160. After that, the plot goes out the window and it’s just incomprehensible. I liked this show a lot but it lost its magic for me. Also, in season five I think there was a little bit of overuse with SFX.
KaelGal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/23/21
There is something to be said for picking up a podcast with 5 seasons already out. A friend recommended this *spooky podcast* that I might like. Little did I know that I would spend my long drives cross country listening to an amazingly in-depth, yet bite sized horror story every episode. Do I...Read full review »
Diggernoel via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/21
I’ve always loved horror and audio media, put them together, with a stunning and talented cast. It’s all I could ask for. Thank you for bringing me such a safe space to lose myself for hours <3
Taylor enderlox via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 04/21/21
Everything about this show, from the writing, to the voice acting, to the audio work, is amazing. I was hooked from episode 1 and binged all of it in a couple months. My only complaint is that it’s over. But it’s a fantastic story and a wonderful ride. Listen to it if you like horror.
G. Syler via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/21/21
This podcast is seriously freaking awesome, an amazing horror podcast but with a cool plot that really picks up. But just a friendly warning for any new listeners: this is a tragedy, and while I’m not saying the ending is awful and a bad ending, I’m saying if you’re the sort of person who needs a...Read full review »
LavenderBlooms via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/20/21
Listening to this with my friend, the plot is amazing and overarching, but not to the point where you have to re listen to everything to understand it It is (dare I say) a web that draws you in with amazing voice acting and storytelling 10/10 would recommend for fellow cryptics
MaxineKC via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/19/21
I am about halfway through the episodes, even a bit less, and I can say it’s absolutely worth it even if I can only listen at night and then every little sound in my room seems way too creepy. I mean, that’s what a good horror series is, really. Not to mention the lore and characters here are so...Read full review »
Rrwqertyaaxfgtg dd via Apple Podcasts · Russia · 04/19/21
I’m very picky with my horror and I don’t normally listen to anthology horror with an exception for NoSleep but Magnus had captivated me. I adore media that is told in an anthology style but has an overarching plot that eventually takes over the narrative. I cannot recommend this enough and I’m...Read full review »

i do not like horror. i have never liked horror. so why did i binge all 200 episodes in approximately 4 days? because this podcast is STUNNING. soyeahpleaselistentoitokaythanks:)

My first Podcast and still my favourite
Kruemelmonsterxxx via Apple Podcasts · Germany · 04/13/21
Excellent writing and acting. I’m not usually into horror, but this style/format really drew me in. While I am sad to see it end, it is the sadness that comes from a progression of plot and character development that is very difficult to achieve unless an arc and end was planned from the...Read full review »

A really great podcast
Eibhlinn85 via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 04/11/21
WOW
Thank you for a great escape full of twists, turns, horrors and statements. This is my favourite podcast and I don’t think anything can manage to beat it. (I can’t explain how much I loved this) I’m so glad I found it and finally found the courage to finish it :,) End of statement.
abbygael :) via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 04/11/21
I love this podcast! The sound design is phenomenal, and so is the voice acting. It’s unsettling and genuinely scary at times, but doesn’t rely on typical scare tactics. Well-written, creepy, and unconventional, The Magnus Archives is one you don’t want to miss!
All your friends are spiders via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/08/21
The writing, voice acting and weaving of the story are top shelf. I enjoyed how the underlying narrative comes into focus slowly. I fell in love with all the characters, they are beautifully human and relatable. Sims narrative paints a vivid visual picture, some true nightmare fuel. Have listened...Read full review »
