Andrew Liptak - The Verge - Apr 7, 2019

"HartLife’s new podcast series Unwell is a good example horror storytelling. Parts of the series feels as though it’s akin to shows like Twin Peaks or Sharp Objects: stories set in, and dealing with characters who live in insular communities. It’s a type of story that has a long history within horror canon, and lends itself well to supernatural mischief. One notable element in the production that jumped out at me in the podcast comes at the end of each episode: an indigenous people’s acknowledgment that lists off the tribes that live in Chicago and southern Ohio. Now is a very good time to jump in and get caught up on the show. "
