Today is Wednesday, June 10, 2020. There will not be a new episode of Unwell today. Following the example and the words of Black Lives Matter Chicago, we call for an end to the state violence against and criminalization of Black communities through police forces, an unjust legal system, and federal, state, and local political organizations. As the artists of HartLife NFP, we call on our fellow art makers in positions of institutional power and privilege to take concrete actions to make your institutions and artistic work explicitly and actively anti-racist. We affirm our commitment to do the same here. We will interrogate ourselves when we have fallen short of this goal and recommit to do better every time. The United States is a country founded on land stolen from indigenous peoples, built with the stolen labor and lives of enslaved Black people. We call especially on White listeners to reckon with this fact, today and every day. The following list is both incomplete and horrifyingly long. These people were victims of hate crimes, police officers and of an unjust, white supremacist system. We say their names and we remember their lives.

Some interesting hooks going on! Enjoying Lily’s complete inability to work through her mommy issues, and the two city folk’s peculiarities in a peculiar small town… looking forward to what will come of all this food drama!
the Abby centric episodes are really pummeling my heart lately
I love this podcast it so good can u get me some more like this
I gave it a chance. The main character is completely unpleasant and rude. Not entertaining at all.
Why is the main character so rude???
Would be a great podcast without all the woke crap. And had a gut full of the “occupied lands” rubbish. It’s not their land anymore.
I just want to know are u gonna to do unwell season 5 anytime soon
Any other podcasts that feature the person that does the voice of Nora? I am normally not a huge fan of more feminine voices but I could listen to her read the phone book. Her voice is so melodic & soothing!
Lilly's dad sounds totally awesome!
I know I'm supposed to think Silas is evil, but his voice is so soothing & it makes me want to trust him. He just sounds so pleasant! Like the kind of guy you want your grandfather to be!
Best episode this season! 🥰 My three favorite characters
This is profoundly disgusting. Shame on you foul people. How’s the weather in Tel Aviv?
I'm unsuscribing from this podcast. There are such long break between episodes it's not worth any recap in new episodes. This podcast had SO MUCH potential and I was very invested in the story. Now, I couldn't care less what happens to these characters. Goodbye, #unwellpodcast
The first 12 minutes are commercials!
what is it with the 12 mins of commercials?
woke BS, delete
Just finished season 1, really cool podcast! Interesting (and weird) characters, spooky/unheimlich but not very scary, good voice acting. Love the setting, and the queer rep :D
I loved this, funny, dark and intriguing I hope there's more episodes.
" Don't talk to me before 7:30am " 😂
Can't wait until March, the New season of "Unwell" drops! re-listening to the previous seasons to prep!
