What fans say about the podcast

What's behind the next door?

I binge listened to it in the better part of a week. Ostium is a world, for all of its unpredictability and danger, that I would actually want to visit if it really existed. Plus, it looks like all the weirdness and plot threads are actually coming together. It feels like there's an actual plan for how this will end, as opposed to some other stories that either pulled something out of nowhere or meandered to the point where no questions were ever actually answered. This small, but passionate crew handles storycraft and worldbuilding well enough to go toe to toe with the bigger audiodramas. I've started quite a few podcasts with long story arcs, but rarely commit long enough to listen through to the end. With Ostium, I eagerly await next season.

Page Chase

Intelligent and deeply intriguing.

Ostium is a somewhat mind bending story with a dark overtime that is hard to resist. Give it a chance, and you will not be disappointed. Ostium is almost like a combination of a nightmare and a dream. This podcast has a hypnotic element that really draws you in.
