From the writer of The Message, Life/After, and Steal the Stars. They call the crashed spaceship “The Ghosthouse” because it screams—the screams of thousands of extraterrestrial political prisoners trapped in its horrific mainframe. The only way to free them... is to transfer them into humans willing to share their minds with a second consciousness forever. Who would volunteer for that?

Relationships

Mac Rogers / Gideon Media with another show about relationships. Listeners are dropped right into the action without explanation, demonstrating Roger’s facility with the medium: the show takes more words to describe than are spoken into listeners’ ears. It’s a show that finds ways to turn inner monologues into dialog, and takes audience into uncomfortable proximity of big characters, toying with the forced intimacy of podcasts, right on the edge of verbal slapstick exaggerations, and also has that one necessarily audio component (that’s not a tape recorder!). We get to know more than we might want to, in this case via frank discussions about bodily functions, the painful rearrangements of human relationships, as well as our relationship with our government, military, and environment. Just when you’ve had enough of a worn out marriage & some crass heteronormative dating scenes, you’re in negotiations for new kinds partnerships and pluralities. Everyone is always managing everyone else for dramatic tension and plot, and everyone is equally important for meaning. SciFi Audio Drama at its best — the kind that’s solving problems.

Solid All Around

Great story with a well-paced progression. I just finished episode 9 and have really enjoyed the build thus far. Looking forward to more.

Four thumbs up

So good, so human, great performances and production values. And like all of this writer’s work, it’s about much more than what you think it’s about.
