GEEK GIRL AUTHORITY: Media for a Halloween Mood

The Lift is a multi-authored production with a twilight zone feel. This podcast is unique in that while it is authored by multiple people, each story fits wonderfully into the overarching narrative. The Lift tells the story of Victoria, the phantasm of a nine year old girl, who lures people into an abandoned building containing a lift. As the occupants ride the lift, Victoria urges her companion to make a choice.

Why is she luring people into the lift? Is she evil? How did she come to inhabit the lift? Why a lift?

The Lift explores Victoria’s path as the guardian of the lift, and the insidious people she meets as she performs her duty. But why is she trapped, tied to the lift? Listen to find out.

The Lift is a multi-authored show, produced by Daniel Foytik of 9th Story StudioProductions. You can listen to episodes of The Lift on iTunes,, and Stitcher.

No, this is nothing like that hellish M. Night Shyamalan film, Devil. Thank god.

Victoria’s Lift is a Twilight Zone-esque podcast centered around an aging building on the edges of Pittsburgh. Each episode functions as a self-contained story, but all share a setting, and a shared theme of transformation.

It reminds me of the Hulu show The Booth at the End, in a good way.

Frighten Up Your Day With These 7 Horror Podcasts – #6: The Lift

This podcast may not be as well known as some others on the list, but the build of it all and regular contribution from writers make it always fresh, always exciting, and always scary. Victoria guides characters up and down levels in this building…this strange, mysterious building…where every floor tells a tale of it’s own that will leave you gripping the arms of your chair. The setup is amazing and they always seem to deliver a good fright. Definitely a podcast to add to your feed!


Fiction Podcast of the Week: The Lift

There’s many factors at work in The Lift and all seem to click together very well. The soundscape and general production values play a big role here. In the opening few seconds of my first listen my expectations grew rapidly as I heard the highly produced intro. The creepy atmospheric sound is backed up by some excellent musical compositions.

The voices of the narrators don’t disappoint either, and some clever audio effects on the voice of Victoria gives her that ethereal feel. The tales themselves are solid and engaging, delivering a lot in a short space of time. If you like creepy short stories and highly produced audio you’ll love The Lift.

Canada 3/25/2017 5 Tara_83 Fantastic podcast I look forward to every episode. Totally immersed in Victoria as a character and narrator for the individual stories. Great podcast!
United States 3/23/2017 5 Jesseglide0036 Victory to Victoria!!! Can I send my kids to The Lift??? They may turn out as better people. I love this podcast.
United States 3/15/2017 5 Kindredheart Love this podcast, Victoria and the incredible stories Heard about this podcast from History Goes Bump and they were right it is amazing. Love the stories and Victoria. She is a creepy yet almost comforting character. This podcast is a must for anyone who likes creative storytelling with a little spooky twist.
Australia 3/14/2017 5 Xuchiex Love it I feel like this is a mix of The Twighlight Zone and Dr Who. The stories are always written so well and have smashed thru all the episodes. I love the sister podcast of Wicked Library also and the readers always make you feel like you are right next to Victoria
Switzerland 3/6/2017 5 Smirli I love it! The Lift combines different authors with a story arch that can go in every direction, therefore keeping the tension high. Each episode can take you to a love story, a thriller or something else entirely. They all have great writing and wonderful narrators in common though. A Must-Listen for all fans of podcasts!
Australia 3/1/2017 5 Trishna23 Intruiging podcast Just came across your podcast and love the short stories. Dan is a great narrator and makes you feel like you are there. And the great character in Victoria…well i wouldnt expect anything less from Amber Collins being a fellow Orstrayan. Oi Oi Oi. Keep it up guys, love it.
United States 3/1/2017 5 LynnieKC Love! I cannot get enough of Victoria. This podcast is so compelling I find myself shocked that 20/25/30 minutes have already gone by and the episode is over. KEEP IT UP!!
United States 3/1/2017 5 Natucharusso Awesome Love it!!
United States 3/1/2017 5 CarlaKovitz Absolutely love it!!! This podcast is amazing. It takes paranormal into the reality of decisions and possible paths we all face throughout our lives. This may sound weird, but in a way, listening to all of the character’s dilemmas and see them decide how to face what they fear has helped me face my own locked up truths. Thank you for making this podcast. I truly love it. Victoria is brilliant. Please keep doing what you do. . . But perhaps more often :-).
France 2/25/2017 5 CecPed1979 Good stories
The stories take on a wide array of “sins”, with some really interesting twists from some of the authors. Totally binge worthy
United States 2/24/2017 5 Bmason867 New Favorite I just started The Lift 2 days ago and already binged to where I’m caught up. I love how the stories intertwine and when Victoria gets to punish the “naughty” people can’t wait to see what’s next keep up the good work!!
United States 2/22/2017 5 Chesstiger139 ONE OF THE BEST I must say that this is one of the best story telling pod cast that I’ve listened to. I encourage ALL pod cast listeners to give it a try.
United States 2/21/2017 5 A butt squeezer Listen all the time Great story lines and keeps on edge of seat driving in middle of night
United States 2/20/2017 5 tinabohio Splendidly frightening Victoria! The haunting voice. The chime in the lift. The intro music. This podcast is wonderful! I just discovered this gem, and I’m absolutely hooked! I hope to never meet Victoria, but I’m really curious as to what floor I’d end up on…
United States 2/19/2017 5 Scarness New Ear Addiction! The Lift is just oozing with beautifully written horror. Lovecraft, Poe, and King influences are very prominent while the show maintains its own unique identity. Think if Rod Serling teamed up with Voltaire or Clive Barker. It’ll play with your heartstrings and in the burst of gun horrify you where you need all the lights on at 03.00.
United States 2/10/2017 5 Rachel0923 Great hometown stories! I love this podcast, always a different author, so always something different. I keep trying to find this building when work takes me through the referenced areas of Pittsburgh.
United States 2/7/2017 5 Kane 201 The Lift is a different kind of creepy I first heard about this show from The No Sleep Podcast and was intrigued by the premise. Finally getting around to listening, and finished them all in about 2 days. Usually more drawn to the macrabe side of audio fiction, I find Victoria and her lift enchanting. Each episode having a different writer allows for different perspectives and characters. Often I find myself rooting for a characters redemption or damnation. Looking forward to many more seasons, keep up the great work!
United States 2/3/2017 5 Shanise822 Awesomely written horror series Any lover of the horror genre should check this podcast out. It’s a good way to get introduced to new authors, and the sound production and voice acting is done very well. And it’s randomly set in Pittsburgh, which is where I live. I enjoy hearing the random plugs for the city.
United States 1/30/2017 5 Mrmouktar Fascinating Anthology I love this podcast its incredibly detailed and world building for a string a short stories.
United States 1/29/2017 5 Russell Morris W The Lift, An Audio Drama Your stories are absolute great. When I first found it, i binge-listeend to it night and day until I had listened to all that had been broadcast. I like everything about your podcasts – the sounds, the music, the characters and, most of all, the plots. Other “scary” podcasts tend tp be not much more than blood and gore (though not always). Your plots, however, Have, essentially, none of that but are philosophical, even spiritual In nature, Whether or not karma exists in the real world, it does in your stories – very refreshing. I absolutely love Victoria – her character, her giggles, and her purpose in life. What makes this all the more wonderful is the fact that the plot, and the music are created by different authors and musicians And talk about diverrsity – male and female. PLRASE do not ever stop ,at least as long as I’m alive! Gregor, Arizona
United Kingdom 1/28/2017 5 Karole J The Lift is Sooooooooooo Good!! At my grand age of 55 it’s sometimes difficult to find original fiction and drama! But this has to be one of the best dramas I’ve ever listened to!! Reminiscent of Conan Doyle or Wilkie Collins. It’s original, witty, clever with the right amount of pathos but never too knowing or over clever. The plot devices are excellent and varied and has high production values which continue to improve. My only complaint is I’ve now listened to both series twice and it’s really annoying to have to wait for next episode!! It would be fab on TV or film but being audio allows listener to really imagine and engage. Thanks to all involved.. your hard work really pays off.
United States 1/26/2017 5 gorekitten Victoria is the daughter I never had, But wanted this podcast totally blew me away… great storytelling, moral lessons wrapped up with horror undertones…. And best of all Victoria!!! I have taken the ride and never want to leave her lift 🙂
United States 1/25/2017 5 Vegasrunaway Eclectic and Thoughtful Love, love, love this podcast. Variety on the darker side which is always interesting. The production, music, voice acting is among the best out there. Professionally put together, great place to showcase authors. Keep up the great work! Victoria is wise beyond her years and I always look for her when I take a “lift!”
United States 1/25/2017 5 Heeby Jeebies Great fiction writing! I thoroughly enjoy The Lift! It’s sort of a high concept-ish fiction series, so if that’s your thing too, you’ll enjoy this!
United States 1/17/2017 5 Fishy head Go for a ride I absolutely love the Lift! Each writer brings their own special twist to the Lift. Be sure to go for a ride, but be warned: you won’t be able to listen to just one. I look forward to each episode for a small break from reality.
United States 1/14/2017 5 OlyGhost Fantastic!
This podcast perfectly blends the independent episodes that are tied in to a common theme (Victoria and her Lift). To me it’s as if the Twilight Zone and a King Diamond album had a podcast baby. That’s a good thing. No, it’s a GREAT thing . Rod Serling and the King would be proud. The production is fantastic but doesn’t mask poor storytelling with effects and production as some podcasts do. Well done!
Canada 1/13/2017 5 BenB891 Amazing horror podcast! I recently began listening and this is definitely one of my favourites. I love that each episode provides an individual story while continually exploring Victoria’s thoughts and past. A great combination of short and long form storytelling!
United States 1/11/2017 5 Phroggygirl Brilliant yet conflicting Stories to fascinate you and to make you question yourself at the same time. I find myself both wanting to mother the sweet Victoria, and wanting to run from her with my heart pounding in my chest from terror. Please, may I have more?
United States 1/9/2017 5 ladyknight1985 Completely addicting! I wandered over to listen to, “The Lift,” after hearing about it on the No Sleep podcast. After the 2nd episode I was addicted. I have enjoyed listening as the character of Victoria develops with each episode and more secrets are revealed! I love the mix of the creepiness and morbidity of stories with the “mostly” innocent Victoria. This is a very unique podcast. Do yourself a favor and subscribe/ download.
Denmark 1/9/2017 5 Annajensenatwater Beautifully gothic:) Victoria’s lift is a wonderful example of a perfect mix between ethereal storytelling and reflections on morality. The darkness of The Lift is exquisite and having little Victoria lead you by the hand (or hair depending on what you did) through the building to the sound of her little musicbox is utterly magical:) keep up the good work!
United States 1/1/2017 5 Sevenone2 LOVE IT! I thought I had reviewed this months ago! Great short story podcast, I love the way that Dan & Cynthia develop Victoria’s character. Dan’s voice work is superb and production is beautifully executed!!
United Kingdom 12/27/2016 5 Wizzdum Excellent production Love this podcast, can’t wait to hear more!!
United States 12/20/2016 5 Goatel Love the lift Love listening to the lift. Just waiting to see if the character is able to leave the building or not is suspenseful and great audio drama
United States 12/18/2016 5 Q_Baby820 Love it!! Every time I think I’m about to get bored with The Lift, they draw me right back in with an extra twisted episode. I love how each new author has a special twist for the character of Victoria because it makes her newly special each and every time I listen 🙂
United States 12/16/2016 5 BellSA76 Love Victoria This is my new favorite podcast. I adore Victoria, and I love it’s originality. I hope this series continues on for a long time.
United States 12/10/2016 5 Whope43 Excellent podcast a must listen too…. I started listening to Victoria this past week, cause I was caught up with my other ones. This podcast has quickly moved to the top of my list, among the ones I donate to. Love the stories and how Victoria stays a constant while the other characters change weekly. Can’t wait for more… Here is your review Victoria with your gold stars since you said pretty please… 🙂
United States 12/7/2016 5 Addie921joy
The BEST Podcast EVER
I absolutely without a doubt can say that this is my favorite podcast I have ever been lucky enough to find!!!! Each episode is different from the last. I love how some of the people whom Victoria brings to her lift are there to be given the chance at redemption while others are there to finally pay for their misdeeds. The work and effort put into this audio drama is commendable and very much appreciated! Thank you for all the hours of entertainment and I can’t wait for the next episode PS~ I just listened to the “Nine Ways To Die” episode and I have to say that it is my favorite so far! My heart just breaks for the sweet little Victoria and her father
United States 12/7/2016 5 Dora_Rose Love this podcast
I love Victoria! I also love the way all the writers work together to tell her story along side the stories of the people she guides. I was hooked from the first episode! I just listened to the whole first season within the last few days  I listen to podcasts almost constantly and this is one of my favorites!
United Kingdom 12/6/2016 5 Delereum Wonderful and creepy Great set of stories that will make you anticipate the next block of free time so you can see what Victoria’s up to next.
United States 12/6/2016 5 Dav13478943 Incredible Literally falling in love with Victoria! This little girls character development is insanely good. I patiently wait for the next episode just for the chance to learn anything else about her. Thank you guys so much. -StratBear P.s. A tv show would be incredible
United States 12/1/2016 5 A1983D Love the show! I was originally leery of getting on The Lift. I listen to lots of horror/paranormal podcasts and was led here to this decrepit nine story building by The Wicked Library. I’m grateful I took the plummet and entered Victoria’s domain. I’ve binge listened to the entire first season in about a day and a half. The stories are well written and the voice acting is superb (especially Amber Collins’ Victoria). I love that the character of Victoria doesn’t follow the old creepy Victorian girl trope and she is instead a rather positive influence when possible. It’s a refreshingly creepy story and I’m excited about the future for this podcast. Keep up the great work!
United States 11/27/2016 5 Fish whiting addicting listening I really enjoy listening to this podcast I am starting to dream of sweet little victoria and think I may submit a story or two. Thank you for wonderful entertainment I will be supporting this great work for sure. if you enjoy creepy short anthology style stories this is the podcast for you.
Australia 11/24/2016 5 Laurina74 interesting A great concept…..I love the tales of Victoria.
United States 11/22/2016 4 SaddexAngel Enjoyable The stories do not drag, and the characters being judged are both good and bad people. The kind of horror of this relies on the kind of person you are and the consequent reactions to what you do, so its not like annoying horror movie full of meaningless jump scares or God-awful decisions.
United States 11/22/2016 5 Addie921joy Seriously The BEST Podcast EVER
I absolutely without a doubt can say that this is my favorite podcast I have ever been lucky enough to find!!!! Each episode is different from the last. I love how some of the people whom Victoria brings to her lift are there to be given the chance at redemption while others are there to finally pay for their misdeeds. The work and effort put into this audio drama is commendable and very much appreciated! Thank you for all the hours of entertainment and I can’t wait for the next episode!!!
United States 11/16/2016 5 emf4 Unable to Download Season 2 Great podcast!! Just unable to download … podcast host dropping the ball 🙂
United States 11/16/2016 5 Imabigkid Victoria’s Lift Absolutely the best podcast out there. The reading is great the stories are amazing. Just found this hidden place and I want more
United Kingdom 11/16/2016 5 team squirrel forever Squirrel Simply amazing I’m so hooked please keep them coming I love it
United States 11/15/2016 5 Girl Kool Nice Class Act The Lift carries on the timeless tradition of story tellers as heard throgh the “The Wicked Library” podcast. These excellent stories are written by great writers and center around a darling little girl Victoria. Dan Foytik and Cynthia Lowman are added bonuses. They will leave you wanting more. If you have a conscience….Beware.
United States 11/15/2016 5 xantianite Fantastically Entertaining! I am enjoying every episode!
United Kingdom 11/11/2016 5 Marocmole Nothing like it… A great series that i’ve been listening to every morning at 5am. It’s encouraged me to walk to work (and) it’s kept me company!! Thanks Marocmole
United States 11/11/2016 5 The Perambulator Well done and worth a listen I was hooked right from the start, especially by the excellent audio work. I’ve been turned off by other podcasts recently where the acting is amateurish, rushed, or sounds like the readers are clearly just reading. These actors know their work, and the whole effect is of a well-paced drama. Tell your friends to give this one a try!
United States 11/8/2016 5 Mantwonatison Great quality and variety!!! The production value of this show is absolutely incredible. It’s really refreshing having various authors write tales for the overall story. A great show for anyone that enjoys spoopy stories
United States 10/31/2016 5 AdamRueck The lift is great Awesome writing, and gripping stories makes the lift a must listen to podcast.
United States 10/31/2016 5 abachle The Lift…. Lifts my spirit Lovely, Haunting, Reflective. Stories within stories. Unpredictable every time!
United States 10/30/2016 5 pawsitivepaw Excellent stories! This is one of the best horror podcasts I’ve heard, and I listen to several. Victoria is such an intriguing character, I want to know more about her. I can’t wait for the next episode. Love The Lift! Keep up the great work!
United States 10/22/2016 5 zombiebob24 can’t stop hooked after the 1st episodes and Victoria here are your gold stars keep up the good work
United States 10/22/2016 5 Kittylovesushi Victoria’s Lift is addicting and perfect for Halloween! I found this podcast through The No Sleep Podcast and I am hooked, line and sinker. I both admire and fear Victoria and her lift. While I know she only wants to help and bring justice to others, I am always worried that I will wake up in her building and hear that elevator ding. But I know I would love to give Victoria a hug and a book. If there is anyone that is ready for a ride of terrors and frights, I highly recommend Victoria’s Lift. Going up.
United States 10/19/2016 5 Gamer man 123456789 Lyft is awesome One of the best ones out there. Great concept.
United States 10/18/2016 5 Chancelorxc Compelling I am generally not a huge fan of the short story based podcast, but this one is different. The common treads of the building, the lift and Victoria pull all of the stories, that would otherwise seem random, together, and make them feel as if they are all parts of a bigger picture. The character Victoria is a brilliant combination of adorableness sprinkled with sheer terror due to the potential malevolence you can feel bubbling under the surface. Definitely worth your time!
United States 10/17/2016 5 Zorli Victoria likes a lot of stars! Victoria and her lift deserves a lot of stars! I have been a podcast junkie for a few years now. I have a 2 page list of podcasts I’d like to get to. I’m just a tad sorry that “The Lift” was further down the column. Of course that simply means I get a little extended binge listening. Somewhere it was written that the show has a “Twilight Zone” feel and it certainly does in a most creative way. Victoria and her lift and building exude a sense of justice. Often there’s that small but oh so meaningful twist that determines who enters her lift and fate awaits them. Each story is well written and well read. Having varying authors allows for a great diversity of situations that call to Victoria for her attention. I believe I would like to find Victoria and see where she would take me on her lift. I await future stories that might reveal more of Victoria and her past. If you enjoy an eerie and sometimes scary tale this is the podcast for you. There may be other podcasts out there that you really like but I think you will add “Victoria’s Lift” to your top 5! I know this is too long and wordy to read on the podcast, even at the end. So just say that I love it, look forward to more and I’m sure others will make this podcast part of their regular listening. Thank you for many great adventures! Laura L.
United States 10/13/2016 5 Makfej My new favorite podcast. Wonderfully written and produced. Love listening to Victoria as I drive.
Australia 10/12/2016 5 Tullydog7 A great audio drama!!! If you are into audio drama you will enjoy this one. Each episode is a short story in its own right with the whole story slowly revealing throughout the season. I am very much looking forward to the second season and finding out more about the story behind the lift. I hope I have lived my life with enough integrity that I don’t get to meet the charming host, Victoria.
United Kingdom 10/9/2016 5 #Crazyjay Rivetting !!!! Found this great podcast so engrossing I listened to series 1 in just 3 days. Having different writers each episode means you just don’t know what’s gonna happen next. Will Victoria help who she entices into her building or punish them? Will they make the right choice? Will they redeem themselves? Underneath all this,what is Victorias’ story? Is she a ghost or something different? Listen and find out!Can’t wait for another series. Hurry up!!!
United States 10/9/2016 5 Big Pauli Completely great and fun This is a fun set of creepy stories. Well written, well produced, and very well acted. This is a real gem, and I’m very lucky to have found it. Keep up the good work, and thank you for the effort.
United States 10/6/2016 5 Blbover50 Wonderful I have been enjoying this podcast and love Victoria
United States 10/5/2016 5 PattyRayMonroe Endearing, unsettling and utterly brilliant. Centered on a charming, creepy little girl and the strange apartment building she presides over, The Lift features a dramatic reading of a different author’s tale each week. Whether a story of judgement for past crimes or redemption from shattered hopes, The Lift is guaranteed to delight and unsettle in equal measure. If you enjoy brilliant storytelling and spooky tales, this podcast is for you!
United States 10/3/2016 5 FasterThanChuck Perfectly Balancing Dread and Delight “Do you hear me? I am Victoria…” I hear ya, Victoria. Loud and clear. In a world full of dark and depressing podcasts about the depraved, you and your lift are a refreshing dose of perfection. A combination of mysterious, macabre, uplifting, and heartwarming, there’s a game-changing story for everyone to be found on one or more of the many floors on Victoria’s lift. This podcast is a must-listen. Kudos to the writers, the producers, and all involved.
United States 10/1/2016 5 Ling419 I am a big fan of Victoria! I listen to the Nosleep podcast and heard David mentioning this podcast. An avid fan of horror ficton, I started listening. The Lift and Victoria is fantastic! The story is very well written and narriated. It was this podcast that led me to The Wicked Library which is a different type of horror fiction but equally fantastic! Can’t wait for the next season!
United States 9/27/2016 5 Mark_Eanes THE LIFT I can’t put it off any longer! You guys deserve so much credit, and I’ve absolutely got to give you five stars right now! I had hoped to be more creative and talk about how your podcast contains horror, suspense, mystery, the paranormal, drama, sci-fi, and even comedy! I guess this will have to suffice, for now. Thank you so much for making my workday more enjoyable! What would I ever do without you!?
United States 9/26/2016 5 Guided cause Awesome show! I absolutely love Victoria’s Lift. I have been bingeing since I came across the show. Great production, excellent voice actors, superb stories The Lift has it all. I have recommending it to everyone. Keep it up, and I can’t wait for season two.
United States 9/24/2016 5 Batgirl_LB Interesting/fresh/new I am in to horror and I find this podcast has horror and hope… I was happy the music/sound effects have found a good balance!
United States 9/22/2016 5 Datoldpud94 Excellent Love this pod cast
United States 9/21/2016 5 Ghost Witch Clever Conceit “The Lift” is a delightful contraption for the many authors writing the short stories in this series. Part mystery, part horror/thriller, the series explores choice, beliefs, and redemption-or destruction, all centered around the characters’ history and their perceptions thereof. You have a choice to make; I suggest listening.
United States 9/19/2016 5 Dellwood8 Wow Hold onto your hat with ride
United States 9/17/2016 5 GLOIN490 Thank you Thank you so very much for creating such a rich story!!! I love to get lost in Victoria’s adventures when iv had a rough day it never fails to brighten my day and bring a smile to my face:-) Thank you so much for all of your hard work and all that you do!!!!! #WWVD
United States 9/12/2016 5 S. F. Gunther Deliciously scary! Victoria is equal parts endearing and terrifying, but she always makes me want to give her a hug. Likewise, it is so gratifying, yet so scary to see where her lift takes you next. Definitely worth a listen!
United States 9/8/2016 5 Miostudio So good ! Great story telling. The one and only main character, Victoria is clever, charming and creepy. Look forward to every episode.
United States 9/6/2016 5 taureleafsilver Unsettling, Touching, and Atmospheric Victoria’s Lift is a series of stories concerning a mysterious building, its elevator, the girl inside, and the people who end up facing Victoria’s Lift to make a choice that will change their lives. The stories range from disturbingly creepy, to sweet and hopeful, and sometimes there is a lot of overlap. Not just another horror podcast, The Lift is a series about people, and choices. Let Victoria be your guide through a menagerie of characters as they are forced to face things they might rather stay buried. The Lift is fantastic, and I can not reccomend it highly enough.
United States 9/6/2016 5 AnArch0Angel Absolutley brilliant This podcast is on my top three list of my favorite podcast. It’s brilliant, and sometimes I fear I will turn a corner and see the door to a lift that was not there before…
United States 9/4/2016 5 StefB-A Very entertaining! Haven’t heard a boring episode! They keep me completely enthralled during my commutes. I sometimes drive around just to finish an episode!
United States 9/3/2016 5 Bethyliu Get on the Lift I have listened to many fiction podcasts. Victoria and her Lift stand out for me. Great production quality, not a bunch of adds (who doesn’t now about Square Space now?) Just interesting fiction. A different story by a different author every couple weeks with Victoria and her lift being the connecting thread. Highly reccomended.
United States 9/3/2016 5 suttonwriter Victoria as the modern Rod Serling If you like the Twilight Zone, you’ll love The Lift. It has the same feel as those episodes, combined with presenting the tales in an obvious shared universe whose rules and nuances become clear and clearer with each new tale. It’s a really fun ride.
United States 9/3/2016 5 DigitalPagan Absolutely enthralling. I binge listened my way through all of the episodes in one day. I’m usually better able to pace myself so I can have a few days of enjoyment, but the writing, voice acting, and production are so brilliantly done that I was unable to walk away until the end of the last episode. Victoria is a perfect blend of sweet and sinister.
United States 9/2/2016 5 Kr1314 LOVE THIS PODCAST The Lift has become my most favorite podcast. Entertaining and thought provoking. Very well made. Give it a listen, you’ll be hooked!
United States 8/31/2016 5 Jingldorf Absolutely amazing drama! Love Dr. Who? Love Tales from the Darkside? Well this show mixes those to mystical shows into one, beautiful audio drama that leaves the listener on the edge of their seat as well the satisfaction of a perfectly written and acted show that is nothing less than fantastical.
United States 8/31/2016 5 BuckSolid1 …dude. Is this awesomeness for real!? Stories are incredible, voice actors are incredible, running theme is as intriguing as the stories that fuel it. “What will become of Victoria?”
United States 8/30/2016 5 ThereAreOtherWays Creative, well done, great! I love the formula of different writers staying to a single theme/story line. It creates a lot of variety while staying cohesive. Great voice acting and narration. Really fantastic idea that is well executed. Keep it up!
United States 8/28/2016 4 DJManiak667 Love the premise, hasn’t been done this well in some time. Victoria is more or less our Rod Serling, and The Lift serves is The Night Gallery. Oh, and I knew I heard that music somewhere before! Anyone who’s adopted the Cthulhu Virtual Pet from the play store should find the intro music familiar.
United States 8/27/2016 5 Joshzzzzzzh Five more for ya. You deserve these gold stars, Victoria
United Kingdom 8/27/2016 5 Allfunktup Good stories an great production If you like original horror story podcasts, high production and concepts are strictly necessary, but when done well they really make a podcast standout. The lift is a good example of that. different authors, one central premise – a girl, a lift, and a story. Definately worth a hearing.
United States 8/27/2016 5 Jermz-g Dear victoria, You bloody wonderfully clever ethereal being you. I never glanced a thought at being so excited to meet someone, and yet so feared at the same time. You entrance me and I only wish I could meet you just to sense your purse heartedness first hand. The Lift is absolutely entertaining and contains amazingly clever fiction. Highly recommend!
United States 8/25/2016 5 Chasingthedog Immediately addicting Love it! Live already burned through the first 7 episodes. If you’re a fan of audio fiction, you will like this. It’s well written and well acted. I love the different stories set in the same universe. I promise you’ll like it.
United States 8/25/2016 5 Frizlfrazl again Amazing, intriguing and thought provoking eeriness! I just discovered your podcast as it was mentioned in another I subscribe to. Thank you for the ride! I’m trying to figure out the agenda of each floor, which is half the fun! Good job to your team for producing such a great listen.
United States 8/24/2016 5 Lee Ann D-A Good job I am addicted to podcasts for my daily drive and I am sooo picky it makes it hard to find things to I enjoy. The Lift makes my list. Production and story are top notch, and the story lines are unpredictable which adds to the enjoyment. I just discovered The Lift this month and I am refusing to binge listen; I won’t be able to stand the wait for new episodes. Well done!
United States 8/23/2016 5 Ahmaeri Fun and chilling Unique story line, creepy child, old dilapidated hotel, what more can any horror fan ask for? Please keep the stories coming!
United States 8/23/2016 5 Ben the Reaper Fantastic I absolutely love this podcast. With enough mystery, laughs, thrills, and disturbing events to make this one podcast j look forward to hearing more of. I powered through the first season to catch up and have already started re-listening to my favorites. Can’t wait to hear where Victoria takes us in her lift next.
United States 8/23/2016 5 Victoria Crooks Absolutely Fantastic!! This show is very creative and spooky. The characters and voices are all very well done. It’s always an interesting experience seeing what happens to those who visit the lift. Will they make the right choice? Listen and find out. You’ll shiver with anticipation and fear. A+
United States 8/23/2016 5 Grettalosa Great stories Why aren’t these movies?!?! So many great ideas!
United States 8/22/2016 5 AndrewNinja Fantastic! This is a great podcast, I really like that each week is a different writer, in the same world. Its really a refreshing take on the horror/ story telling podcast.
United States 8/20/2016 5 Qswitch I love this podcast! I’m a bit slow. After listening to the first episode, I wasn’t sure I liked this podcast. By episode 2, I was completely onboard and realize that cheeky little Victoria is quite a hero. have binge-listened to every episode multiple times. In fact, I am keeping all the episoded on my phone because i know i will want to go back to them again and again. Keep the stories coming! If my life ever becomes derailed, I hope Victoria and her lift are there to teach me one of her valuable lessons.
United States 8/18/2016 4 shikamari I give it four stars I give it four stars.
United States 8/18/2016 5 Boojum! Great Story, Great Idea! I love that there are different writers each episode, the change in tone plays on your expectations. Keep up the great work!
United States 8/18/2016 5 Oppai heart Discovered and loved Each story is so unique and so different. The only thing they share is Victoria and her lift. And when she pops in it just gets better. If you like stories reality checks, call outs, and destructive truths delivered by a ghost like entity this is an amazing ride.
United States 8/17/2016 5 Themeparkhero Simply Amazing Really gripping stories that vary quite a bit from episode to episode due to the different writters that write for each episode. The one thing you can count on is Victoria always being there.. for better or worse.
United States 8/17/2016 5 catbeegood Excellence My far one of the best audio drama podcasts out there. Great writing, great characters, and excellent production quality. If you like The Twilight Zone you will like this podcast.
United States 8/17/2016 5 Gecladin Wonderful This is the best story I’ve listened to since “we’re alive”. The way that every story is different reminds me of the anime Hell girl, except that she usually leaves her marks alive and with a lesson learned. I also love how we keep getting slightly different writing styles every episode. Truly amazing.
United States 8/17/2016 5 John Bolin I love this show
I have heard of the podcast when I was listening to the No Sleep podcast and they suggested that the listener might like this Podcast I am glad I checked this out this now going to be a part of my weekly routines  Thank you all for creating this for everyone to enjoy
United States 8/17/2016 5 WJEChaney Impressive If you are a fan of The Twilight Zone, this podcast is definitely for you. I was hooked after the first few episodes. I was turned on to this podcast from The NoSleep Podcast. This podcast is definitely one of my favorites.
United States 8/17/2016 5 Scared little one Amazing This is an unbelievably well done podcast. Victoria is creepy, yet I can’t stop listening!
United States 8/16/2016 5 DannyRose256! Love it! I’m totally binge listening to this podcast and can’t wait to for more stories! Keep them coming! <3
United States 8/16/2016 5 Mlothar A great podcast I discovered the cast through the NoSleep Podcast. Loving it so far, with the Tesla episode being truly inspired.
United States 8/16/2016 5 16446464646 A great new discovery! I learned of this podcast through the No Sleep Podcast. I love supense, sci-fi and horror audio entertainment. I find it to be a nice fusion between horror and sci-fi. I’m discovered it later, so I’m bing-watching season one. Look forward to the following season!
United States 8/16/2016 5 Mike Kojoori A great new discovery! I learned of this podcast through the No Sleep Podcast. I love supense, sci-fi and horror audio entertainment. I find it to be a nice fusion between horror and sci-fi. I’m discovered it later, so I’m bing-watching season one. Look forward to the following season!
United States 8/15/2016 5 Phaylleure Wonderful Stories~!! Recently picked it up after the No Sleep Podcast recommended it and fell in love with it. It has the vibes of both “Ballad of a Shinigami” and “Jigoku Shoujo” though more of the later. Keep up the good work and excited to hear more~!!
United States 8/15/2016 5 Ling419 Very good I’m a listener of the nosleep podcast and they recommend this podcast in their latest episode. I love listening to scary stories and am so glad I checked this one out. The story is well written and narration is great! I’m binge listening to all 20 episodes of the first season. Can’t wait for the next season!
United States 8/15/2016 5 JessVee81 Great Stories and Voice Acting! Another podcast I was listening to suggested this and I am in love 🙂 Must subscribe if you love the horror/thriller genre!
United States 8/15/2016 5 bugvince Outstanding Here you are Victoria, five gold stars, just as you asked for. I just happened upon this remarkable podcast and have become obsessively addicted. It’s now my favorite, with only one other running a distant second. The writing, voice acting, music and storylines keep me yearning for more, I simply can’t get enough of the amazing creativity that goes into each episode. I like Victoria and her willingness to help people who sincerely want to help themselves, what a wonderful concept. I would love to meet this charming little girl someday, I only hope she likes me as much as I’ve come to adore her. Please keep up the good work, I look forward to the next episode and to all future episodes that follow. Victoria, I didn’t give the five gold stars, you earned them.
United States 8/4/2016 5 Wastedarkcell Twilight Zone in the best ways The draw of Twilight Zone is much the same with The Lift. Each episode has a new cast and setting, usually a different author as well. But we always have the narrator telling us what’s what and who’s who. But with The Lift, we don’t have a disconnected narrator, here we have Victoria. She’s the running theme of the show and I’m glad she’s as involved as she is in each episode. And one is never sure just who to root for in each episode as every character that comes to Victoria’s lift must brave their own Inferno [just as Dante did]. Some episodes can thrill or frighten, while others leave you with a warm sense of satisfaction. So if these are all qualities you look for in an audio drama podcast; give this show the three episode treatment. Then, probably, download the rest of them. Because, well face it, you’ll want to know what happens next.
United States 8/3/2016 5 MaverickValley chills and tears I came to you from History Goes Bump and I’m so thankful!! I love every one of Victoria’s encounters, but there are some that have let me with tears as well as chills. Girl Alone at Play & No Such Thing from Season 1 had me dabbing my eyes. Restitution was also a personal favorite. But, none has given me chills quite like The Storm, which prompted me to review. I’m still reeling! I hope that if I’m ever faced with Victoria, that she deems me worthy of a “happy” floor.
United States 8/1/2016 5 ZA Fan All the stars I absolutely love the writing for this show. They do a great job of picking stories and authors who add to the Victoria mythos. I would love to find myself one day in Victoria’s lift.
United States 7/21/2016 5 Colorful_Cupcakes A gem! As a huge fan of the Twilight Zone this was the perfect podcast!
United States 7/10/2016 5 666halo Sweet, informed, unwavering & committed That’s Victoria! Sometimes a soft heart, should she FEEL that you have some hope, will be shown, to the soon-2-be guilty/suffering. The “Lift” will “feel you” & decide your fate, little precious Victoria will show you the way, to face that, mysterious but familiar, dark hallway to…. I am quite the lover of this genre & truly appreciate the production & professionalism! Excellent in all ways! Keep it up Victoria!!!
United States 7/7/2016 5 elredien Creepy and adorable The stories in this podcast are great. I feel some are a bit short sometimes, like they need a bit more, but that could be because I get so involved I want to know more about the characters and how can you not? Victoria is great, her laugh is creepy and adorable and probably the most interesting and different plot device I have seen in a while. Always looking forward to the next episode.
United States 7/1/2016 5 Melusine777 Well-crafted, original, delightfully creepy storytelling I’ve just started listening to The Lift and I can’t get enough. The writing and narration are top notch. The sound design is wonderfully creepy without being over the top. I love the world that these standalone episodes all exist in – Victoria’s world!
United States 6/28/2016 5 Tom Robinson’s Apple Tree A Strange Arrangement This show is everything I was looking for in an audio drama. Solid story telling, appropriate sound effects, beautifully executed ambiance that seems to drive the scene, effortlessly. It’s easy to get lost in the story, experiencing the character’s pain, sadness or acceptance. I’m stuck on The Lift!
United States 6/20/2016 5 ice13166 The Lift is Victorious! I am a podcast fanatic and I listen to 13 regularly. This is by far my favorite. I anxiously await each new story. It’s like the amazing radio shows of old that totally engaged the audience with wonderful narrators, hypnotizing music and sound, and imagination-stimulating stories. I’m so happy I found The Lift! Don’t let it go without coming aboard. Go get ’em Victoria!
United States 6/17/2016 5 M812K Pleasantly Surprised!
I was informed of this Podcast by a Small Town Horror post on FB. I was looking for a new Podcast to listen to (Since I am caught up on the 20 I listen to) and I am soooo happy with this gem. I love the idea of a different writer for each episode. Keep up all the good work! I will remember to be a good person, Victoria can leave me alone.
United States 6/16/2016 5 MidwestRJ MidwestRJ Very good, creepy, and interesting stories – only have three left and I will have listened to all of them. THE LIFT!!!
Belgium 6/14/2016 5 Yashvi1611 An amazing podcast Each episode is different with new characters being introduced
United States 6/7/2016 5 StillATwinsFan Brilliant I can’t put into words what I felt listening to just the first few minutes of the Pilot 0 episode. Haunting and almost dizzying to listen to the sound and voice acting is absolutely amazing. This podcast needs MUCH more attention!
United States 6/7/2016 5 Snoof80 Deliciously Creepy I ate up every available episode and am now impatiently waiting for more… Victoria is delectably evil and at the same time benevolent always hoping the right choice will be made! I love this podcast … Keep the episodes coming!
United States 6/6/2016 5 DisneyMansionFan Spooky and Thoughtful The format of this podcast reminds me of The Twilight Zone or Night Gallery. We have a lovely little host in Victoria. The Lift is all about choices and this little gem might be the right choice for you. Each episode is a full story, some spooky, some thought provoking, always entertaining! I am fairly certain, should I ever find myself in England, I’ll be all about using the stairs and avoiding cute little blond girls.
United States 6/2/2016 5 Ricerboyghost This is a spooky great time I love this pod cast it has became something I look forward to getting. It keeps you wanting more! the host is great. I hope you keep up the great work and I am so glad I found this podcast. I hope one day to turn around and see the lift behind me . the more I learn about the lift the more I want to know. I can’t wait to hear what will happen next it’s a great ride. If you love horror look no more drama spooky scary it’s all here. Thanks from Georgia USA
United States 6/2/2016 5 Bee@ A hidden gem (for now) I found this podcast through Chilling Tales (another awesome listen if you haven’t yet come across it). Got immediately hooked with the spooky building/wibbly-wobbly, timey wimey stuff. And, of course, the ever delightful Victoria. Working late and listening to The Lift, I can’t help wishing one of my elevator trips ends up being more… Eventful 😉
Belgium 6/1/2016 5 Yashvi1611 An amazing podcast Amazing podcast
United States 5/28/2016 5 grulig690 Great new podcast! I found this podcast about a week ago and it captured my attention and imagination almost immediately. I listen to all that I can find and The Lift is now one of my favorites. It’s well written and well produced. I have already binged through all the previous episodes and look forward to see what Victoria gets involved with next.
United States 5/27/2016 5 Tobytmagru Lift Awesome podcast,I live for this stuff!!!
United States 5/25/2016 5 Bapperson Wonderfully Creepy The creepy girl and her mysterious lift draw me in repeatedly. This is one of my favorite podcasts now. It is difficult to describe, however. It is about stories, a creepy girl, and a lift. Is Victoria benevolent, malevolent, something else entirely? The more I listen, the less I know.
United States 5/25/2016 5 Itsy in the dark arts Love this I can’t get enough of this podcast. It gives me great ideas for my art. Kept it up guys!
United States 5/19/2016 5 VASH512 Ready to go for a ride on the lift? I’m always looking for good horror podcast and with some of the best ones like the black tape’s podcast having recently taking a dive in quality it’s great to hear the lift having such a fantastic story from so many people it’s interesting to hear different writers take a look at Victoria and how she offers redemption or damnation to those who deserve it i’m always looking forward to the next episode it’s a hearing Victoria’s giggles I want to know more about her so I’ll always listen to hear the next part of her story great work everyone keep it up
United States 5/13/2016 5 Danger Kitten Love Love this podcast the stories are great. Helps me get through the work day.
United States 5/12/2016 5 hollywouldifshecould Amazing I’m a horror junkie, and this is one of the best out there. While my kids are waiting for new episodes of “The Flash”, I’m always anticipating new episodes of The Lift. Great writing and fantastic narration. And Victoria….I hope our paths cross some day. Or do I?
United States 5/8/2016 5 DodgerBlueForever82 Great Podcast Very entertaining. Great podcast!
United States 5/4/2016 5 Dikbutkiss Fan-friggen-tastic I love this podcast and came upon it through the wicked library. I don’t write many reviews but Victoria and her lift have me hooked. I love the fact that each week is a new writer with a new story that weaves it’s way into Victoria’s web. I binged the whole series in two days and am hungry for more. It’s always a pleasant surprise to see that “1” near the lift in my podcasts indicating a new episode. I have found myself asking wwvd in certain situations in my life and I find myself wishing yet fearing that I may stumble upon that dilapidated building and hear the faint echo of a giggle. Do yourself a favor and just subscribe, you won’t be disappointed.
United States 4/21/2016 5 Brie0907 I love victoria!! Totally addiciting! Was a little leary with the first episode but got super hooked when i realized victoria is good! Keep up the great work and storytelling!
United States 3/15/2016 5 666halo Sweet, informed, unwavering & committed That’s Victoria! Sometimes a soft heart, should she FEEL that you have some hope, will be shown, to the soon-2-be guilty/suffering.

I am quite the lover of this genre & truly appreciate the production & professionalism! Rock & Company, for the chills, my spine thanks you!!! Keep it up, the great work, here at the Manor House!!!
United States 3/9/2016 5 Aaron Vlek Wonderfully Creepy! You know that feeling when you can’t turn away and you’re half scared and half loving it? That’s The Lift. It’s a short cut to the whim whams for those who are introduced to Victoria, a charming timeless individual that you don’t quite know what to make of. Great fun and a unique format and voice. I look forward to a lot more out of Victoria and I only wish I could find her Lift myself, I think.
United States 2/25/2016 5 Sevenone2 LOVE IT! I have had your podcast downloaded for a few months now. I just binge listened to all of them yesterday while delivering my mail route! The stories are super creepy and extremely well written! The production is beautifully done! Keep up the good work Dan!!
United States 2/14/2016 5 The Stepfather Download Now! I love listening to these stories and worry that an elevator is going to show up and it will be my turn to face Victoria. Deeply engrossing and at times disturbingly real; the music, voice acting and story keep the listeners ears tuned in to what will happen next. Love it!
United States 1/30/2016 5 Mr. Leroy Awesome! intriguing series reminiscent of an old fashioned radio show. Creepy story, great narration and voice acting. Love it!
United States 1/29/2016 5 Ghost of Krycek To The Nines! Simply some of the best writing and story-telling available in the podcast medium. Deliciously compelling characters. And, the production quality is first-rate! Take a ride with Victoria. You won’t be disappointed.
United Kingdom 1/22/2016 5 EnglishPsychoII Original, and fantastic storytelling. The Lift is a podcast featuring a collection of stories featuring an unearthly girl and her lift that takes visitors to places that deal with their secrets. There’s a variety of writers so lots of tastes are accommodated, although I have enjoyed all of them. It harkens back to the Twilight Zone, and is just what you’re looking for if you miss great, original storytelling. Can’t recommend enough, subscribe today!
United States 1/22/2016 5 Jcwoodstl Finally on iTunes!

If you are a fan of great writing, endearing characters and top-notch narration, this podcast is for you. If you haven’t listened to many story-telling podcasts but were a fan of old Twilight Zone episodes, this podcast is for you. Go ahead and subscribe, you’re welcome.
United States 1/22/2016 5 HistoryGoesBump I love Victoria and her Lift! The story surrounding Victoria, the Lift and the building both inhabit is intriquing! This reminds me of the twilight zone and I like the theming of horror and redemption. What makes this podcast unique is that it has many writers providing the stories that are all within the same world. Most radio dramas or podcasts featuring horror/scifi fiction have different authors writing very different stories. Give this one a listen and you will be hooked!
United States 1/21/2016 5 Jcwoodstl Finally on iTunes! I absolutely love this podcast and am thrilled it is on iTunes now.
