I can't wait to hear more!

I'm biased because I created two of the episodes, but purely as a fan I LOVE this show! Each round we are given one prompt and from there each team created something incredibly. Each episode is full of so much talent, creativity, and you wouldn't believe this was created in just 24 hours. I look forward to hearing more!

Short and sweet!

This is a delightful anthology of short audio fiction centered around the eponymous theme: hubris. Each of the stories has their own unique charm. You'll meet ghosts, magical artificers, and even vampires.

The individual productions were create start to finish in a 24 hour span, and they have the energy and creativity that only comes from a pressure cooker environment. Despite the tight timeline, the stories are each well produced, well written, and well acted.

Definitely give this a listen!
