Word on The Diarist
 

Andrea’s story is engaging and it is interesting to watch her story unfold over the episodes, to watch Andrea grow and change and make her choices or mistakes. You may not agree with her choices or where she ends up but it is wonderful to listen to it all happen. 5/5 typewritten stars.

The Diarist is what you get if Mad Men and Jane Eyre marry and have a baby, where a secretary becomes the personal assistant to a prickly and strange ad executive and falls in love. It’s about regular people in the 1950s making bad decisions. The voice leads in particular are instrumental in creating a haunting story about people that could have been happy.

I am fully addicted to this story.... Anytime characters give the listener such a strong response, it's probably safe to say it's an interesting story.

This show is a delight. It is about a young woman finding her way in the world. The Foley effects and acting make this truly a radio play which I feel advances podcasts to the next iteration. Please check it out! You won't regret it.
