WHOAH!

This “podcast” is AMAZING!!! The characters are interesting and the pandemic…very mysterious. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TONA’S song: “LOVE POTION”. Thank you for a really good anthology.

Love you Tandon Productions!

Writerly Anthology

Individual writerly situational character studies that parallel real pandemic life. Some of which are more like the premise for a joke that’s extended out as far as possible as a writing exercise, without worrying too much about delivery of a punch line (plot, story). Episodes have long claustrophobic trapped feel, which is thematic of course. Inescapable. Some of the characters are intentionally unpleasant. Acting is thoroughly convincing. Writing is quite good though predictable. For me it was ultimately a downer, but if you’re looking for an audio drama that really centers writers workshop style writing and has acting to match, this is a very good choice.
