Author Comments

Zeph was a 19-year-old struggling alcoholic when he heard about Nol's Therapy Mansion. Having nowhere else to go, he set out on a journey into the province of Zodkoon, a land which defies natural law and order in every way. Little did he know, this was just the beginning of a long, drawn-out journey of a lifetime. Today he sits down with us to discuss the origins of where this all began.

The Hav Show is still in production, but this is a little something I'm doing on the side. Hopefully you guys find it at least somewhat interesting.


The song at 0:48 is Lounge Jazz by Kroser on repeat. The rest is all stock music and effects.

It starts well! Wasn't sure it'd really reel me in at first, but it did after all! Feels like there's a little narrative clutter with the stutter sometimes, but overall it flows well, feels authentic, when the sound effects start - or at least when I first really noticed them, with the pelting rain and car tires screeching... that really adds a lot to the atmosphere. Solid production! Good volume/balance too.

As for the story I suppose it'll just get better from here on out. :) Looking forward to seeing where it all leads, and what those collaborative story-writing efforts garner. If you need any additional vocal cameos later on that mine might contribute to feel free to reach out.

Awesome initiative with this; refreshing with a more story-based podcast too. think it might actually be the first one of that type that I listen to.

cool

Nice job! I'm interested in where the story is going.
Zeph is a little bit hard to follow/understand now and then (did he have a hangover when doing the interview? lol) but he (you) sounds very natural and "believe-able" as a character.

Looking forward to the continuation! :D

Not bad. The narrative seemed less like a story being told and more like a person venting out his day. Which really factors into this story. Like a confessional in a reality show.

This is pretty interesting. I'm not sure if this is intended, but the way you talk sounds accurate to what you're trying to represent- a struggling person looking for therapy. While sometimes its hard to follow though (stuttering?), with practice I believe that'll get better. It would be cool to see an attempt on different voices, like the guy below the floating group of people- but that's just my preference.

But in conclusion; as a guy who haven't seen touched upon this kind of stuff before, I say good job. Kept me hooked.

HavryloThePigeon responds:

I'm glad it was able to keep you hooked! And you're right about the vocal tone I was going for, I'm glad it gave the intended effect!

There were points in the episode where the interviewer was supposed to be asking Zeph things and I think that's what you mean by audio issues lol because looking back at it I can see that it wasn't always obvious what was happening so it just sounds like Zeph is taking the piss. So I'll try to make it more obvious in future episodes that he's actually being interviewed lol.

Doing different voices would be definitely be great, I have terrible vocal range though so it would probably be cooler to have other people come on and voice act the important characters lol but we'll see what happens there.

Anyways I'm really glad you liked it! There will definitely be more to come soon.
