    THE CULL, Episode 1: Smell My Wife

    THE CULL, Episode 1: Smell My Wife

    The Cull by By Michele Riml & Michael St. John Smith
    Episode 1 of 5


    Emily and Lewis are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary with their best friends. While a forest fire rages out of control in the local mountains, the conversation around the dinner table turns many corners: catching up on family events, reminiscing about their teenage years, and debating about what it means to be a "good person." But when an unexpected gift turns the seemingly civil conversation about the local wolf cull into a fierce personal argument, a secret is revealed that threatens the stability of the “pack," turning this particular dinner party into a night of eat or be eaten.

Night Passing

Loved this audio play! The characters were so well developed and acted I could picture them! The story was riveting and I love how the episodes ended with a cliffhanger. It also made me sad to think that people had to live with so much fear, not that long ago. The sound and music really worked well. Thoroughly enjoyed this.

Love Night Passing!

I love these Night Passing episodes - the story is amazing, and the characters are so fun, and the sound is incredible. I feel like I am in Ottawa in the 1950s and in the heart of the queer community. I think sharing stories about the history of our LGBTQ+ communities in Canada is so important. This is one of the first shows that I have heard that has explored Canadian LGBTQ+ history. And it's accessible and captivating and so incredibly on-point with the film noir! Binge listen to them all!

Thank You!

I just finished Unexpecting today. So well done! As a young queer person, I can’t tell you how much it means to hear a queer story that doesn’t centre itself around the “typical” LGBTQ struggles - coming out, etc. While those stories valid and important, it’s so refreshing to listen to something layered, honest, and full of hope. THANK YOU and I can’t wait to listen to what comes next.
