Critic Rating

2022 Webby Award Winner (Best Scripted Podcast- People's Voice)! "Where true crime and witchcraft meet...the show masks digestible magic for the beginner witch underneath a tale that discusses all the wrongs in society, which is really what witchcraft is all about." — Teen Vogue "A thriller with heart." — Good Morning America Starring Oscar-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe: when a Black writer goes missing, a white podcast host with a savior complex takes up the cause of finding her—and collides with a coven of influencers she suspects are responsible. After a summer in Westchester soaking up how the other half lives, Jenna Clayton has vanished without a trace. The only clue: a set of voice memos detailing an investigation into a group of influencers she suspected were using magic to achieve their means. Elise Edgerton is outraged that no one has found Jenna yet, and decides to take up the cause. But despite believing she is using her platform for good, Elise’s mission threatens to turn her into an even worse villain than a witch: a white savior. If I Go Missing the Witches Did It is a Realm production, starring Gabourey Sidibe and Sarah Natochenny and written by Pia Wilson. Listen Away.

"...a great horror audio drama with stellar voice acting. If I Go Missing the Witches Did It is both funny and spooky. It did remind me a lot of the witch season of American Horror Story, and that wasn’t (just) because of Gabourey Sidibe, though she is excellent in it. Her voice adds a lot of personality and life to the already engaging storytelling. If I Go Missing the Witches Did It is just plain great horror satire."

"This amazing series, written by Pia Wilson and starring Gabourey Sidibe...I STAN this podcast is because it’s about a woman’s journey in acknowledging the power that lies within herself. This podcast focuses on how we can embrace that light and use it to our advantage — magical or not — but, I’m super happy it is. One thing that becomes apparent throughout the last episodes of the podcast is that magic is unpredictable."

"...it is a revolutionary story, one that truly updates the witch genre for the 21st Century. A feat that this podcast accomplishes by way of several key storytelling elements, one of which, is by offering up a witch story that doesn’t use any of the aforementioned formulas in the slightest. Instead, this particular story is set in present day, and it introduces us to some everyday folks just trying to get by in the world, which is a stroke of genius...this is the kind of brilliant and engaging story that you need to experience for yourself...fascinating and delightful story..."
