    Short and sweet review, this podcast is amazing.
  • kong rong
    If you want a thriller to listen to, do
    This is the one of best drama podcasts I’ve heard, it takes dramatic, “cinematic” storytelling podcasts to the next level. The aural landscapes, acting and story fuse very well.
  • LouisDime
    Engaging and exciting
    This is a great podcast with amazing production values. And I'm not talking about greqt production because it's one guy that does it all, even with a staff of 10, it would still be some of the better production values out there. Great story, great sound. Just listen to it!
  • Canuck_in_DC
    If you enjoyed Dust, give this a try
    I listen to podcasts to fall asleep, but using this one as a soporific just doesn’t work. :-) If you like suspense, thrill, and a little anxiety with your sci-fi, you will love Derelict. For what is essentially a one-producer show, it’s amazing quality, and the voice actors are stellar.

    Loved it
    Loved it!
  • Mophin7777
    Love this!
    I recently just got into listening to fictional audio stories…and this one has me hooked. It’s only been a week since I finished the first 7 episodes…but I keep checking back for new content. This is my favorite audio story so far. It was so well written and so well acted, I felt like I was seeing the story. I can’t wait for season 2…if it’s still coming 💞💞💞
  • rocr69
    Do you like Dust?
    Then you will love this show.
  • charlie bfc
    High quality
    This was like listening to hollywood movie, season 1 was very entertaining can’t wait for season 2
  • irby227
    so amazing!!!
    an absolutely fabulous podcast! i love how this story presented its characters and plot! props to the amazing cast of voice actors and technical crew! so excited to listen to more as it comes out!!
  • Saladtociraptor
    Decent story, bad science
    First episode was interesting, but the scientific inaccuracy really turned me off. Radiocarbon dating just does not really work for things much older than 50ky, much less 7my. A really fast current on the ocean floor is something like 1.5 knots. Anything that was sitting on the ocean floor for 7my, even at the lowest sedimentation rates in the ocean, would be buried under hundreds of meters of sediment. I get that this is maybe minor quibbling, but why not check some of these things if you’re going to use them in your story?
  • Crunchberry
    Excellent edge of your seat series!
    Blown away by this production. If you like a I fi, just get this!
  • ladylandinn
    Great podcast
    Suspense, professional acting/production. Highly recommended.
  • McGlerkin
    Top Notch Show on all Accounts!
    Don’t hesitate just dive right in. Story, acting, production are all perfect. One of the best audio dramas I’ve heard.
  • jah111000
    Absolutely fantastic podcast
    I’m blown away really, the writing, voice acting, sound effects and entire storyline is amazing.
  • Skibumcowboy
    Fathom Great, But Where Is Derelict?
    I can’t find it.
  • Whovian418
    Incredible show
    I love these types of podcasts, and I think this one is my favorite.
  • Khemani
    Excellent plot, Excellent Quality!
    This is an awesome podcast!! I am thoroughly perplexed, however, as to why it’s considered a prequel when there doesn’t seem to be a prior podcast called Derelict. There is a lot of mention of a prior season, but no podcast on my app, and no link to a podcast elsewhere?
  • Adrian Scott
    incredible show! the mix is a little off though!
    on lower end, higher end, phone speaker, and two separate types of independent speakers all have trouble with the audio clarity! the narrative is great, the voice acting is excellent, and I’m impressed with the sound effects and all other aspects of the production! the only thing keeping a star off is the mix and mastering. the background is too high, the voice of the AI is too far back and muddled by the voice effect, and the other voice actors are a little on the quiet side. Mostly just needs a little more separation from the mid range to pull up the voice audios! I am only mid way through and maybe some of the audio stuff will be dealt with by the end and I will happily alter my review and give it a full 5 stars!!! I love seeing smaller productions get dive into such awesome content! hopefully sometime you can add someone to the team and split the work! I know how much of a labor of love it is!!!
  • Jarren R
    Great Show
    Really good show with an awesome story line. You’ve done a really great job from conception to production. I give 4 stars and not 5 because the sound mixing needs improvement. There are several times there are background sounds that are too loud/strong and drown out the dialogue in the foreground, that would really be addressed for new seasons. It will be a great improvement. This medium is a challenge to produce in, you want things to sound natural, but also we need to be able to hear what’s being said. We have no other sensory cues to discern from, but for a first production, you did good, shows a lot of promise and talent.
  • Choose a name, any name
    Great Story and Acting but….
    I like the story and the actors that tell it, no issues there. For my speakers and headphones the background effects are a bit too prominent in the mix. I find the white noise/undersea noise and other effects which are constant in the first few episodes, hard to EQ out and raising the volume to hear all the voices is just too loud. Otherwise great job!
  • Mamesbo
    Good stuff.
    Audio is good on my phone, and the story is compelling. Top quality audio play. I hope to hear more.
  • Phishattack
    Incredible…. Nothing more.
  • TriMoose
    Crazy Addictive
    Really well done show that is incredibly addictive. Found this to listen to while I worked in the garage. Blasted through it in no time! Really well voiced and well composed narrative. Great find for sure!
  • Antonioooo!(tm)
    Meh … Got bored. Great professional reduction!
  • PerpulSloth
    Where’s the Derelict episode? Only the Fathom episodes are available.
  • Shileaux
    Excellent story, excellent sound design
    Most action movies, books and expecially podcasts, I just tune out fight scenes. I can't keep up with who's where and whats happening. But in this podcast, I always know what's happening, which seems amazing to me, because it's only audio. My favorite podcast.
  • Andersonis
    Excellent! Terrific voice actors and sound design. Can’t believe it’s written, directed and edited by one guy.
  • Clark Savage Jr.
    Fathom/Derelict is a very fine science fiction adventure story. The acting is excellent, the character development is done well. It moves quickly. If some of the plot points are a little on the familiar side, I think it’s forgivable. I am waiting eagerly for Season 2!
  • twin1!
    Soooooo good!!!!
    If you haven’t listened to this podcast you are missing out!!! Everything about this show is amazing
  • LadyWithCookies
    Episode 4: Pain - Audio Nightmare
    Really liking this series but have to call out a lapse in audio editing for episode 4: the beeping, the high pitched RELENTLESS beeping is unbearable. Levels for the beep should be waaaaay lower. But they’re equal to or greater than dialogue so in order to hear what characters are saying you need to increase volume which means louder beeping. This is potentially a deal breaker for sticking with the series.
  • SharkBait207
    Top notch, completely engrossing
    Amazing series. I’m on the edge of my seat. Worth listening to again when I finish it. So good.
  • TheScutter
    On the edge of my seat…. Or toes I guess
    Just started listening to this story from the beginning Fathom while working. Honestly it’s so thrilling and I’m hooked on the story. I’m a little worried my coworkers will think I’ve lost my mind if they happen to notice my face and under the breath mutterings as my earbuds pump this amazing story into my ears. This podcast rocks!
  • Beezerwack
    Audio excellence
    Storytelling and sound design like no other. An audio experience like few I’ve ever heard, highly recommended, immersive and captivating.
  • amadeusdavinci
    Def recommend if you like sci fi mystery vibes like project novo. High quality voice acting too.
  • Jaimeqntr
    Loved it!
    My son told me about this and it sounded really interesting. since I sit in an office all day it it was perfect to get lost in the story while plugging away on my computer. The actor’s are amazing and the story sucked me in from the beginning as my son said it would. I will definitely recommend this to my friends.
  • Gimme Chili
    Generally good
    The show is well-acted, and well-written overall. However, it does have a problem with its execution. There are surprisingly long passages of dramatic sound effects with no indication of what’s happening. A radio play or audio drama has to compensate for its lack of visuals, otherwise it becomes tiresome and frustrating for the listener. Some kind of exposition needs to be worked into the dialogue, or it’s all “sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
  • Staciej2000
    GREAT show!
    This is not my usual genre to listen to or watch but it came up as a suggestion and I gave it a try. I love it! It’s smart and fun. Great acting which I find is lacking in a lot of these productions. It’s slick and well produced with great sound and atmospherics that really place you there. Highly recommend if you are a fan of sci-fi in general but especially films like 2001: A Space Odyssey or The Abyss. And thank you for a strong, layered, female lead!
  • Jimntex04
    Great podcast! Really enjoying it
  • Dwytewillems
    Great so far
    Really nice concept
  • AngelDeath
    M.A.C. Is …
    Low key something else. I can’t put my finger on it, but the WAY he says certain things to Graff…I only made to Ep3 of “Fathom” and so far so fun! Very well written. I hope they keep going with this Fathom/Derelict series.
  • luvvagoodstory
    Simply put, this is a good one.. this is engrossing, immersive, fantastic, and yet believable... some of the time you won’t quite know what’s going on, but it does in fact come together... I love when I find a podcast I feel I must, must share... this is one of those 😎
  • Zrks
    Excellent Sci-Fi
    I came across this podcast doing a search for “science fiction” after exhausting the episodes of my favorite sci-fi podcast, “Dust”. I’ve binged the available episodes and have loved them all. The premise, story, dialog, performances, and characters are all compelling, and when combined with the fantastic sound design, results in a completely immersive experience for the listener. There is no doubt that the editor has put much time and love into his craft. Congrats to the cast and crew of this production. I eagerly await future episodes.
  • lfhaynes
    Truly sucked in to this podcast.
    Listened to the first episode On a whim and binge listened through the rest. Im hooked. Great story acting and production qualities.
  • Alexaudrey15
    On the edge of my seat
    What an incredible piece is work. I never understood the obsession people had with podcasts until I started listening to work like this. One of the best written, produced and directed podcasts. If your looking for a great podcast, even though you’re not a si-fi fan, you’ll love this.
  • Design Sense
    Crazy Awesome!
    I wish this would last forever. You’ll want to keep an eye on these creators.
  • Dylmeister#1
    Really great.
    Over the past few years, I’ve listened to quite a few science fiction podcasts. So far, this one is one of the best yet. Really good writing, excellent performances, excellent sound design. I’d love to see this as a TV series.
  • arope28
    Science fiction in film is usually all about the “visuals,” often leaving the script to be shallow and gutted. In the podcast medium, this DERELICT: FATHOM experience is an extremely well-written and immersive story that is only equaled or exceeded by the talent of the actors. The characters are brought to life *because* of the script and the fantastic acting, as there are no visuals - other than the world built in your mind’s eye as you listen. QCode introduced me to immersive fiction podcasts. But DERELICT: FATHOM takes it a few steps further by not only being committed to telling a good immersive story, but by also committing this world to you. This feels like the beginning of something much larger - in all aspects. Once you open this door, there is no going back.
  • cwby_junky
    When’s the film coming out?
    Yes. This. More. Please ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Wootsy1
    The Standard…
    You know when you experience something so impeccably we’ll done, it ruins you for other similar works? After listening to these few opening episodes of this amazing story, I find myself comparing them to past and current similar podcasts to which I’ve listened. What I thought was good has been rendered a pale anemic version of what this podcast is. Nothing I’ve listened to so far compares. The acting, the pacing of the story, the ambient sound design are all so good and believable. Yes. The episode releases are few and far between but to put out work of this caliber, they are completely worth the wait.
  • Brian665
    I great story great acting and sound effects make this an engrossing story, I found myself taking the long way home to keep listening Thanks
