This is a great podcast I have been restarting because I cannot get enough I listen while driving to and from work and when I’m getting ready for bed

I love the escapism and now looking forward to finding out what will happen next to the people in the town.

Love the story. There are a couple of voices I don’t care for

Great concept. Great writing. Great narration and voices. My favorite is Mother Ciprian. Great overall production by all involved. This is well rounded talent and hardwork combined. Well done Cole.

Great story line that’s completely engaging and original. I listen to a lot of fictional horror, and this podcast is at the top of my list. I look forward to every new episode with a new look into this twisted little town. The theme song is great. Don’t listen to reviews that say it’s too long....Read full review »

Found this podcast after finishing old gods of Appalachia it’s within similar themes and I kind of like this old Timey way of storytelling.Also listen any of those one stars they all sound like douches, not liking the podcast for stuff like advertisements and theme music. They’re super pathetic
Some Day Writer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/30/21
Not a particularly well-written storyline or engaging narrative. Similar tropes appear throughout the podcast. There’s little reason to keep listening after the first episode unless you really enjoy that style of narration and plot point.

Found this while searching for something to listen to while waiting for Old Gods of Appalachia to return. Just started but so far I am enjoying the stories. HOWEVER, I like the theme song BUT wish that it was a little shorter. It has a good feel to it and all but it’s just so long. Other than...Read full review »

The story is very interesting and I like how everyone is intertwined with one another. I have seen reviews about ad placement but I didn’t hear any ads in the middle of the show? Also 🙄🙄 Please, leaving one star reviews because you don’t like the theme song how petty. There are plenty of of...Read full review »

I’ve been looking for a podcast to fill the Magnus shaped void and I think between this podcast and OGoA, it’s more than satisfied. Love the story, the family aspect of it makes it delightfully horrifying in its implications.
Yikes on Several Bikes via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/06/21
I found this while listening to OGoA and glad I became a Patreon member of both! Keep up the great work - waiting for what comes next in the Town!

Great show!
#kingnerd via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 08/02/21
Love how intricately the town is set up. This has been a wild ride and can’t wait to hear where it keeps going!
Hellcatkelly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/08/21
People need to make money, I get that, but reasonable podcasters put the adverts at the front and the back, the last episode of this that I listened to had multiple ads in the middle, why even bother with the production value if the immersion is broken every 3 minutes? I suppose that some people...Read full review »

I skip music regardless theme songs are great but it’s overdone here. I get podcasts need ads but a story based one like this needs either ads at the start, the end, or placed in between thoughts not randomly thrown in.
jalbright9023 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/22/21
Yep, you read correctly. It's soothing and terrifying. There is something really engaging and interesting about The Town Whispers and I think it boils down to the fantastic narration which soothes you through the story and then the story itself with creeps you out and terrifies you if you let...Read full review »
Shaun Pell via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/08/21
The theme song. Please. Make it stop. I cannot tell you how much enjoyment it leaches from the show to have to hear that song for so long at the beginning and end of each episode. Especially when I’m trying to binge this podcast.
ididucan via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/19/21
Good story and sound work are marred by frequent ads (understandable) with zero transition or padding jammed into the middle of scenes - just a sudden jarring jump from creepy narrative to advertisement. Even just an extra quiet second or two before the ads would be a big improvement to listening...Read full review »
Groksocket via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/16/21
Way to many ads that are poorly placed. This is a less entertaining Tanis or Rabbits. Complete knock off! I had to unsubscribe🤷🏾‍♂️
Aehsir via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/30/21
Please for the love of God get rid of the song! Or if you insist on keeping it, make it about half as long. I haven’t been a consistent listener because if I am listening while driving or my hands are occupied, I can’t skip it. Please make it stop. From the other comments you can see that I am...Read full review »

I enjoy this podcast. I love listening while I’m cleaning.
mimi990608 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/13/21
More and more ads, which is understandable to a point, but why are they placed at literally the worst and most abrupt interruptions in the storylines. Also the story started out so strong but like it’s just losing steam and becoming meandering and confusing.
ecollins509 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/05/21
The story got me hooked right away. As it goes on it’s slowed down a lot. There are a lot of branches that need connecting. Each episode is wayy to short considering how many ads there are and that the song plays at the beginning and end of each episode plus podcast update news and info. I joined...Read full review »

So I heard about this podcast through “Otis Jiry scary stories told him dark” but also through “chilling tales for dark nights” and “let’s not meet”. I’m extremely happy that I took a chance on this podcast cause WOW!!!! I’ve binge listening for 10 episodes now and I can’t get enough!! Definitely...Read full review »
asianone13 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/31/21
Great podcast but a transition into the ad of Bob Saget being annoying would break the mood a bit less maybe?
freshairisfordeadpeople via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 03/26/21
I got the intro song stuck in my head
eucalyptustreedweller via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/11/21
The story is great but the ads are really really annoying
Margo 79 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/02/21
I have been an avid listener and binged all of the episodes until I got caught up around episode 15. The story is gripping and keeps you thinking about it for days after you listen. Reminds me of amazing The Westside Fairytales by Tyler Bell. The only issue is the more popular the show has...Read full review »
Rob Hugs via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/23/21
He’s already dead does not need to play all the way through or at the beginning and end it is overkill. A couple seconds is MORE than enough. It is a great podcast. You DESERVE at least 4 stars but I cannot tolerate all the commercials and that song. Complete turn off. I’ll start back...Read full review »
Coach Quack via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/21
Was looking forward to this podcast but it sounds like it’s recorded through a tin can. Not sure if it’s poor equipment or it’s meant for some type of effect? Either way it makes it almost impossible to listen to.
Ryan 123456789123456789 via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/12/21
I have enjoyed it , but knocked off 2 stars the opening song makes no sense and is annoying for every opening for each chapter. Once is enough dump it.
Lisa Maria66 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/11/21
I’m done binging prior episodes... and now I have to wait 😕
Riana1! via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/09/21
I have been so in love with this podcast! Dark, gritty, storyline and a lovely narrator. I become fully immersed which often does not happen with podcasts. The only downside and reason for only 3 stars, are the advertisements. The volume is much louder, they cut into the stories with no...Read full review »

A creepy and chilling tale written and narrated brilliantly. Very unique. You have a bright future ahead and you deserve it. Great story so far.
Oceanside007 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/21
The writer doesn’t understand women or children or humans.
Someoneinschool via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/06/21
With all the five star reviews I had great expectations. But such a disappointment. I stuck it out for five episodes, but it was so dull. The narrator follows the same cadence for every sentence, and the there’s just no suspense or tension. And pro-tips: if your premise is based on presence of...Read full review »

May actually be the dumbest/lamest podcast of all time 😂. My 3 year old could create a better podcast. I felt my IQ dropping every single second I listened to it but if you are looking for a quick laugh sure I recommend this podcast. 🤣🤣🤣
dontbeah8ter via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/04/21
Whilst binging all the episodes prior to Feb 2021, I just could NOT put this one down. I don’t even like horror as a rule, but a very discerning friend make me promise to try it. So glad I did. The writing is brilliant, and the author is doubly gifted: He is also a very talented reader with a...Read full review »
HappyGenny via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 02/03/21
Can’t stand the narrator’s voice. Sounds like a 20-something college kid. Lacking the gravitas to give the stories any weight. The pacing is slow, there’s no hook to pull you in. I gave up pretty quickly but I listen to a ton of podcasts and I can usually tell right away if I’m gong to like it....Read full review »
jadr80 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/11/21
This podcast really wants to be Old Gods of Appalachia, and as a PNW resident I really wanted it to be good, but the writing, narration, and production values just aren’t up to snuff. The most irritating part to me is that the writer goes on some of the same long multitangent sentences that the...Read full review »

I’m only on the third podcast and I find it to be different from all the other podcasts I’ve heard, I find it let’s just say bone chilling

This is GD BRILLIANT! The narration perfect tone and pace, the sound production is high-buck professional if I didn’t know any better! The overall format has been carefully crafted. I’m in for the long haul with this one! B.Kellogg - “Control”
BryanB923 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/05/20
Wishes it was old gods of appalachia but the writing lacks any of the talent or flare and the author's subliminal contempt for women is hard to miss.Read full review »

Usually don’t listen to podcast, but wow! This one has caught my eye. One of the best well written and edited podcast there is. Give it a listen!
mitchiy moo moo via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 10/23/20
Dark, dreary, and cold! This podcast taps into the same kind of thick atmosphere and engrossing rural bleakness of audiodrama podcasts like Old Gods of Appalachia! Heavy voiceovers, beautiful shouldering writing, and the sense of things ancient and seething laying out in the most secluded corners...Read full review »

I’ve been waiting for a horror podcast from you since the true crime one came out, thank you for everything.
