It's an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew.

Watchtower 10's necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who's only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies.

Unbeknownst to the general public (but totally knownst to each watchtower's crew), these stations also hold a secret that could potentially destroy the world...or save it.

The Bridge is a fictional serialized fantasy podcast about the monsters we fear, the monsters we can become, and the stories we leave behind.

Wonderfully spooky

This is a really great show. The setting is amazing. I would recommend it to all who love gothic stories and interesting characters.

Stunning

This podcast combines my favorite tropes:
Eldritch pet monster in the basement that may or may not be malevolent? Check.
Spooky yet terrifyingly real setting? Check.
Interesting, cryptic characters? Check.
Voices where there shouldn’t be any? Check.
Over all it just has this unsettling there’s-something-in-the-water vibe that probably everyone who’s ever been on a boat out on the open sea has had at one point or another. The team-dynamic of the main characters is also one of the many points I adore about the podcast, as it’s complex, not always sunshine-and-rainbows but still gives the listener the impression of close bonds between them.
And, of course, Bob.
Seriously, where can I sign up as his creature-sitter?

Kinda spooky kinda creepy kinda funny

I was instantly intrigued by the setting when I started listening to The Bridge. A Transcontinental Bridge is something my travel-hungry self had been dreaming of back when my fear of taking planes was still pretty severe. The idea of a road trip across the Atlantic ocean sounds pretty neat to me! So, yes, I loved the setting, I also loved the fact that The Bridge and its hotels and amusements parks were pretty much abandoned now and that straaaange things happened there. The writers and voice actors create such a great atmosphere around it that reminded me of the atmosphere in the Bioshock games (which I LOVE). Speaking of the writing and the voice acting, both are amazing!! The characters are interesting and deep and their interactions are fun, and the whole podcast is this great mixture of creepy and spooky with a great sense of humour. I can't wait to listen to more from watchtower 10! PS: Have I mentioned the deep sea monster living in the watchtower's basement? Its name is Bob! Hi Bob!
