Normally, I listen to some pretty heavy duty horror, dark fantasy, and nasty science fiction. However, this episode was particulariy rough. Sure, I can just skip the episode; however, I am concerned that the PG-13 rating was inappropriate for this show. Rated R would have been a wise choice.

I understand an additional warning was added to the metadata (attached to the podcast). It needed to be more explicit (if the rated R setting won’t be used).

Delete or censor the episode? No. I’d like EA to reconsider Episode 691’s content warning as soon as possible.

I'm afraid the people who could do that don't really read the forums these days. You'd have better luck posting in the discord or emailing the editors directly.
