"For lovers of the narrative genre, De Blankenberge Tapes has to be the ultimate podcast - the ingenious plot leaves the listener constantly craving more."

- Het Parool 

"Curtains closed, lights dimmed, speakers on and prepare to shiver. Let yourself be carried away by the impressive haunted house story Phasmophobia. An exciting story with excellent sound design."

- NRC Handelsblad

Babylon is based in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Nijmegen, The Netherlands and was founded by Pascal van Hulst and Tom Hofland.

"Always interesting when a format emerges with an original concept and a tight narrative structure, and which is also based on solid journalistic work. Dance podcast Rewind makes you feel like you were there."

- De Volkskrant
