    Praxit's luck runs out. Hours before leaving for the quarter break the hall drones escort him to the invigilator's office. It goes better, and worse, than he expected.


    Hi, James here. After 20 episodes and 9 hours of listening, we’ve made it through the first part of Praxit’s story. We’re leaving him soaring into the sky, on his way to a giant mecha party in a fully calibrated baby.


    And what could be safer than a giant mecha party?


    It’s quarter break here in Australia, or school holidays as we like to call it. I’ve got two mech-less kids to entertain and Praxit’s next adventure to write.


    So Future is Mecha is going to be quiet for a few weeks while I plan, write and start recording.


    I’ve learned a lot from this first story. And I think it’s going to make the next one even better.


    Praxit and his friends are going to be out in the world. There will be fewer mechrosse players and more lens-heads. The challenges will be more challenging. The dangers more dangerous. And the baby will get to be awesome.


    So make sure you are subscribed to this podcast so you will get an alert when the new episodes become available. I will post updates on my progress to instagram, twitter and facebook. Just search for @futureismecha.


    Thank you again for listening and supporting future is mecha.

    The mechrosse team really doesn't want Praxit trying out again. They're about to learn to never under-estimate the determination of a sim lord in a short fat mecha.

    The weekend was weird, but the baby is finally moving like a proper mecha. Praxit is feeling confident about Wednesday's try-out. If only he didn't have to worry about lens-heads and invigilators...

    Lobby 11

    It's Sunday - the fun day! But Praxit's Dad is going on a date. Praxit's friends are busy. But he's cashed up, so he hits a simmer mechafé. That's been taken over by poppers.

    Chainball

    Another mechrosse try-out behind him. The weekend in front of him. Praxit hangs with friends, gets in some brutal games of chainball, but can't escape Davor or Enu. Or the seamy underside of simming.

    Jets

    The baby has jets. So Praxit does the sensible thing and uses TravNav to go straight home. Just kidding. He gets into trouble. As if that's not enough, Enu continues to blackmail into doing his bidding.

Poweram ,

An amazing Sci-Fi audio drama!

“Future is Mecha” is a fantastic audio drama set on Earth in a distant future.
It’s aimed at tweens and teens and speaks to their problems. (I still love it at the young age of 41!👴🏻) It is fun and funny and the world building is very well done.
If you like Sci-Fi, Mechs (think the giant piloted robots from Pacific Rim), or just a well told story, Future is Mecha will make you happy. 🤖
