Loved this podcast. The story telling is descriptive and well done. I want more! Where is the next season, Seriously I’ve been waiting forever! Please please please release another season!
Worth a listen
Overall it’s okay. I enjoyed moments of it but I kept getting taken out of it because Carly and Jones kept saying how dangerous the game was even though there really didn’t seem to actually be any danger... It was interesting when it came to multiverse theory. Worth a listen if you aren’t looking to be scared, because it’s definitely not scary.
As a disclaimer I am only two full episodes into the series. However, I am fully blown away by the story itself and the storytelling. The seamless weaving of fictional and nonfictional elements is fantastic. Coming from the age where a lot of this takes root, and working in the technology field my whole life really makes this whole experience all the more delicious. Also, just to note, if you hear “uploaded to the notes section”, those aren’t just words. To me, it was a fantastic extra dimension. Edit 12-16-2020 Finished the series, again. The writing, narration, the ebb and flow of the story, editing, everything, I found it all to be just fantastic. It was VERY HARD to put down. I would drive around for hours listening to just one more episode.
Blurs the lines between fiction and reality like Tanis. Wonderful with nuggets of truth.
Amazing I want this to be real so bad
Yes we are all waiting for more but it’s so worth it love what y’all do
Tries so hard to be LimeTown
I’m not a huge fan of the “Person starts a podcast to investigate x mysterious thing” format. The only show I’ve found that does it well is LikeTown. And that only worked because they did an excellent job with shrouding everything in mystery (which Rabbits does fairly well) but unlike Rabbits, LimeTown delivered a killer punchline to its setup (Rabbits not so much). Main character’s don’t need to be “likable” only interesting, Carly was neither. Unlike Lia or Charlie (from seasons 1 & 2 of LimeTown respectively) Carly asks dumb questions, and narrates insane exposition even in situations where both parties know the information she is spewing out. If you are going to give exposition at least talk directly to the audience which is the whole point of this “fake podcast” format. Don’t think you are clever by “hiding” exposition in dialogue. Unlike some reviewers who couldn’t get through episode 1 I stuck it out all the way through season 1 hoping for an ROI that never came. I like the idea of an underground game, kind of like the adult version of the “39 Clues” teen book series. But I think it would be better served dropping the “fake podcast” format, and made into a TV show with well-defined characters and a bigger IT factor behind everything.

R U Playing?
I have been addicted to this for a few days. I love it so much! However, The actor that did Carly could do with some work. She talks a bit like it’s a diary entry and not a mystery. I absolutely loved Jones (Hazel?)! Overall a fantastic podcast. I keep finding myself looking for mysterious men in grey...
Waiting forever for season 2!
I was expecting it to be way less conclusive as mysteries are but it ends in a really nice place. It’s conclusive but they could do a season 2 if they ever wanted to. I feel like series like these never pull that off well. Good production and more direct than Tanis which I love but tends to meander.
The first episode just dragged and I couldn’t see myself finishing it
R U playing?
Great story, but felt like it sagged
It feels a lot like this story changed and adapted over time, but the main story beats remained the same. What started as a documentary following clues about Carly’s missing friend changed tone and perspective a few episodes in, less about this being us following along in real time and more of a story telling device. Which gets really weird later when people comment on having listened to the podcast in real time...it’s confusing. You’re telling me nothing happened in between two weeks every time? Not terrible, but it distracted me a lot. Overall, I feel like the story had a great start, but sagged in the last third, lots of exposition, lots of narrative beats being out of reach until the story decided we needed it (please, drop hints and give us stuff to realize LATER mattered more, instead of the drip feed, the entire brother storyline took sooooo long to get the full story). The final episode really wrapped it all together and made it work, you’ve just got to push through 6-9 as the payoff is worth it.
Best Podcast Ever!!!
This is the best podcast I’ve ever listened to. With only 10 episodes you guys managed to create such a unique and reverting story! Please give us more season!!!
Good despite awful main character
This show touches on a ton of ideas and events that utterly fascinate me, and has created such an interesting and compelling problem the characters are trying to solve. That being said, I would ~not~ be friends with Carly. She has no critical thinking skills, asks the DUMBEST questions, is sarcastic when it’s rude and not helpful, and literally can’t seem to understand even spoon-fed basic quantum physics concepts, even though this adventure is supposed to be completely based in quantum physics. Not to mention, her whole deal is pretty white-savior-y. If this story was real, she’d already be dead. Her voice shakes like a little kid standing up to a bully, even during normal convos. I just think a woman who would go this far to find her friend would be a) WAY more street smart, b) quick-thinking, critical, but open minded and c) not such a baby. Have you met a powerful, intelligent, aggressive reporter that talks like a butterfly? Me neither. Like scary men coming towards you? LEAVE. Computers coming on remotely? GET OUT OF THERE. Someone actually tells you you’re in danger? UH STOP TAPPING YOUR TOE AND GO. I just think a real investigative reporter would have so much more backbone. Her one big bad moment was standing up to a billionaire who could erase her with a flick of his wrist. Like THAT’s when you get tough? The one time someone could actually dispose of you? But if you can put Carly aside, it’s great. Alternate dimensions, Elysian drift, quantum physics, spooky dangerous men, everything a girl needs.
Still the best
It’s been several years since Rabbits was released and it’s still the best fic podcast I’ve found. We need a S2!
My favorite so far
I think this is my favorite of these so far. Loved the Black Tapes, Tanis is good as well, but this one takes the cake. I binged it in a few days, could not stop listening. The ending was incredibly satisfying. Well done, I’m very much looking forward to more of your work!!
This plot was a bit more interesting than the Black Tapes story. However the story being fiction still could not shake its soap opera vibe. Certain words and phrases make the story very cliche and difficult to have a sense of realism to capture the actors as convincing. The last episode sum up was not mysterious enough. It’s like it she was reading from her diary. Concept intriguing, acting not so much. Waiting for a more Senior level story and script. Not sure how Tanis will be. Here I go!
I have rabbits hidden around my office now I’m so into this podcast. Cannot wait for season two!!
Rabbits - wonderfully entertaining
Great story! It has the complexity to keep you entertained and the drama to make you binge it.
Daily Music Listener
Great great great! I want more! I was listening whilst washing dishes in my kitchen and kept looking over my shoulder. So much fun.
The story telling is so satisfying, the plot keeps you hooked! I loved it.
Plot is good I am halfway through and am enjoying the story. The problem is that everyone seems so bored and the acting is slow. Sometimes the back and forth conversation is a little too predictable.
I love how Pacific Northwest Stories does podcasts. The Black Tapes, Tanis and Rabbits are just super well made.
An entertaining shaggy dog story
A shaggy rabbit story?
Awesome show so far!
Been addicted to this for a few days.
Tedious and annoying
I never finished the 1st podcast. It took more than 11 minutes for the narrator to tell us that Yumiko was playing a game called “Rabbits.” It’s also called “Nine,” properly written as “IX” because it’s the ninth iteration of the game, “I” (One being the 1st). Eleven minutes. I captured it 2 sentences. And it doesn’t get better. This is for people who can’t stop yapping but never have anything to say.
Terrific and addictive
From the very first episode, I have been addicted to this highly engaging, realistic and thought provoking podcast. I binged through it within 36 hours, and am now re-listening to it. Great job! I look forward to the next season.
Y’all killed it make another season
was this a crazy adventure with neato characters?

probably the best of the PRA podcasts
genuinely creative story! hope it doesn’t drop off in later seasons like the Black Tapes and Tanis
You guys are as$ h0les. Pretend to have a “hiccup” in Tanis when it was clearly a story breakdown and fail to provide for rabbits as well. Clear your heads, bring in writers, and get back in game.
Not Perfect, but Still Fun
Let’s start with the obvious: the acting isn’t great, the script can be a bit laughable, and sometimes it feels a bit full of itself, but the plot is still good! The character dynamics are interesting and despite the cons, I found I cared about them and what they were going through. By no means is this podcast perfect, but I felt like it tried something new and it’s worth a listen for what it does right!
Good, with bad conversations.
I like this podcast, but HATE the conversations/script. I feel like the main girl asks a lot of ridiculous questions, and only says, “what do you mean?”, or “What?” during the entire thing. All the conversations, are very fake and dramatic sounding, so it makes it hard to listen to. I just hope that gets better during season 2, because the idea is really cool.
A binge-worthy listen
I was thoroughly captivated from the first 5 minutes and then binged the whole series (season 1) over a weekend. It gave me some OA season 2 meets Adjustment Bureau vibes. Great concept and storytelling. Sound design on point. Excellent narration, but conversations felt super awkward and unnatural most of the time. Wasn’t a huge fan of the ending, but I accepted it (in the same way I had to accept the spinning top ending of Inception). All in all a thrilling listen and I would recommend.
Wanted to Love It...
I listened to all of season 1 and most of season 2. It felt like there was the basic ingredients for a really great story, but the creator tried too hard to be overly ?dramatic? and it just started to feel too forced.
A mystery worth listening to
I really enjoyed learning about each of the characters. The story was very imaginative and well thought out!
Hate to say this but man that was disappointing
I listened until the end of season 1 and I was hoping the ending would have some substance, but this is the most let down I’ve ever been from a podcast that was initially so captivating.
Wow okay buster
👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌👌 5 stars
Sort of disappointing :(
i really enjoyed listening to this podcast and all throughout season 1 i was HOOKED. but... the ending. it was like the writers didn’t know how to end the podcast and just hoped we’d nod our heads and just, i don’t know, forget about everything that happened, that was recorded. they ended it the way i used to end my longer stories i would write in middle school. a good storyline, solid characters, a nice rising action, then it would just stop. they might as well have ended it with “and then i woke up.” i liked the little bit of mystery, but it felt short and to the point, like they wanted to wrap it all up fast. i would recommend this podcast to anyone who likes this investigation concept, but i can’t say i really enjoyed it, since it somewhat feels like, i mentioned this already but whatever, one of those “and then i woke up” endings. i’m just not sure how to feel.
Cool story, needs better writing
The narration is good and the premise is interesting, but the conversations are unrealistic. I spend a lot of time thinking “Is this how people hold a conversation? It’s so uncomfy.” I kept trying to rewrite the conversations between Jones and Carly so that they have unique voices. People talk over each other, sometimes make jokes, tease each other... There’s something human that’s missing from all of these conversations.
First PNWA Podcast I Listened to
This podcast has an exceptional host of voice actors and a storyline that just won't quit. It's dynamic and intriguing, and is an incredibly written audio collection. Really, this podcast is the newfangled diary of mystery, but with consistent testaments of bystanders to keep the story ever evolving. I loved this so much, I moved over to the Black Tapes (PRA) and Tanis (PRA) to invest more time with the other occasional drop-in radio hosts. This podcast is an audio compilation of Carly Parker's investigation into the disappearence of her childhood friend, Yumiko. Though a bizarre and seeminly otherworldy series of events, Carly is thrust into the middle of a dangerous game focused on winning undernet fame and world-over fortune. Follow along with Carly as she desperately searches for her friend while unearthing a host of characters focused on the perception and dynamics of the game titled simply 'Rabbits' or 'Nine.' You won't regret the plot--set up like a new style fiction--all based in the beautiful, but secretive, Pacific Northwest. I recommend that the show creators give the public another season! Because the storyline potential needs to be completed!
Such a good idea and then so much disappointment -the acting, the false hope in a season 2 (?!), and just how it is organized in the same exact way of Tanis and The Black Tapes. 1 trick pony?
Need season 2 ASAP!
It takes some time to get into, but Rabbits is fantastic. It’s more focused and focused than Tanis, without losing the mystery and the intrigue. Season 1 is fantastic. Everything from the narration to the music is perfect. Highly recommend!
I feel like they’ve finally nailed it! Tania drags on and on with no cohesive end in sight. This was fun and addicting yet clear and focused. Great job
Are you playing? I want more.
In my top three podcasts, along with TANIS and Spines.
Oh my gosh! I just finished TANIS and was craving something along the same lines. I binged all 10 episodes in two days - I just couldn't bring myself to pull my earbuds out. It's so freaking good!
The pace is slow
Sometimes feels like it’s dragging on
