    CHRYSALIS is written by SH Serrano, adapted by Stephen Michael and Macklen Makhloghi, and executive produced by Corey Hawkins.

It’s like Black Mirrors

So I’m writing this review because I kept dismissing this podcast after trying the first episode and giving up on it. I kept writing it off. I think because it’s not clear exactly what Dust is.

So I’ll tell you.

Basically if you like the Netflix show Black Mirrors- you will probably dig this podcast. It’s like that. Each episode is its own little story. I believe they all exist in the same universe- but I could be wrong. The stories are futuristic but not too far into the future. Technology in this world is more advanced then current technology and yet- it’s not so far advanced that it doesn’t feel familiar. It’s just a little ahead of our current space in time.

For example, ai isn’t a thing yet in this universe - just like it’s not in ours- but it is close to the brink- closer then we have seen it be in our lifetime.

There is space travel so I suppose it can be put into the category of si fi. The drugs they have are still the same drugs we have with the added step of a bit more understanding of hacking into the human brain.

Anyways. I think that’s enough to give you the gist of it. Each episode is entertaining and somewhat thought provoking at times- in the same way that Black Mirrors can be.

I’m glad I gave it a go. You probably will be as well. I finished the first season and am in the second season now.
