Seriously, keep listening!

The first two episodes were so painfully boring I thought I’d never get through this series. By the middle of episode 3, I was started to get interested in the mystery and kept thinking “wAit. What just happened?” Over fairly minor stuff. Once your’re into episodes 4 and 5 you HAVE TO finish the story, and it’s not what you think. Knowing this was from Nightvale, I expected something entirely different to happen—the explanation totally caught me off guard but had me hooked and captivated and awed with its surprising turn I never saw coming and it’s poignancy and then another twist I never saw coming. You won’t be sorry—and let me say that some of this is relatable real life stuff and fanciful or supernatural. This is a worthy listen.!

A Touching Story

I felt like I was intruding on something personal and private. But they welcome you in and make you part of the story. Well done!

It sneaks up on you

“It Makes A Sound” starts off as dry comedy in the tradition of Waiting For Guffman, but as it develops it reveals a rare sweetness and depth of feeling that you don’t quite see coming. It’s a wonderful story about the ways that love for art and artists creates community and heals wounds. Highly recommended!

Keep listening!

I saw a review that mentioned that getting past the first three episodes makes everything worth it, and I cannot stress enough how much that is true. I was unsure as to whether I wanted to continue this podcast, but the slow build has such a satisfying payoff. This is a beautiful story that I am enjoying immeasurably.

Wait for it!

If you have the patience to get through the first 2-3 episodes, you will be rewarded with the most original podcast being produced. It’s a drama with great depth, and much to appreciate. Maybe not for everyone, especially listeners looking for Night Vale-esque weirdness, or horror. Definitely unlike anything else out there, and I listen to around 50 podcasts.

Stay with it!

After the first episode I wasn’t sure this was for me. I am so glad I stayed with it. So fun and quite moving. I loved Jacquelyn Landgraph’s voice, both speaking and singing.

Deeply moving

I never leave reviews but this is the first podcast that has left me weeping. There was so much packed into this story. It was beautiful and painful and hopeful and some parts broke my heart. Every single moment of this podcast was filled with kindness and empathy. Very highly recommended.

Wonderful

It Makes A Sound is great. The story slowly reveals itself; it’s definitely not for anyone who wants everything thrown at them from the start, so I could see why people might be confused after one episode. But it’s totally worth it, as it is a beautiful look at life, memory, creation, and coping. The cast of characters and how their relationship grows is really endearing, and I found myself loving all their quirks and different personalities, and how fate somehow brought them all together. Also, the music is superb! Overall it’s been one of my favorite listens of a fiction podcast for sure.

folks it’s time for small wonders

I really loved going into this podcast blind, trusting that wherever night vale presents was taking me, it would be wondrous and strange. I found the narrator immediately familiar and comfortable, listening to her was like listening to a close friend tell me about what excites them, what they truly love and speaking without restraint; that kind of wild late-night sleepover talk that doesn’t ever happen in the light of day. Deirdre was a very lovable woman, and I really liked listening to her theories and off-the-cuff ramblings! It’s not something I can say I’ve ever gotten to hear on a podcast before, and I want to really express how much I liked it because this specific element seems to garner a lot of flack. Whatever!! I think it rocks and I like Deirdre! I have so many positive things to say about this podcast (I love all your voices, for one) but it mostly boils down to: this podcast told a genuine story about human connection in a way that resonated with me on several layers, and it has impacted and altered me in some way I am not sure I know the extent of. Thank you!

Horrid

The narrator was awful. The writing could use some drafting. At least three drafts.

So many layers

This podcast is so special...so many layers involved. It is fun, sweet, melancholy, funny, evocative, touching. The characters are wonderful and you the more you listen, the more pulled in and involved with them you get. Every one of them. The music is great. If music is/was a special part of your life this is your podcast!

So beautiful

This show takes a little to get into but it’s SO WORTH IT!!! It’s such a bitter-sweet story and pretty funny. The music is good and it is very relaxing to listen to at the end of the day. Hope there is a second season!

Won't Go Back

I tried multiple episodes hoping I would find it interesting. It's bland and it doesn't seem to go anywhere. I just couldn't get into it.
