    Episode 8: Terrance Woodridge

    In the season finale, the threads collide as Terrance finds himself drawn forward in time—along with every other Sugar Maple owner—to play a concert balanced on a tipping point of destruction or creation. Backstage at a music festival unlike any other, Terrance alone has a chance to prevent or fulfill Thread Tree's grand designs ... but he's afraid he doesn't know how.

    Episode 6: Quentin Gladstone

    Episode 6: Quentin Gladstone

    We pick up the story with Terrance chasing new leads, while he plays back the tale of a previously unknown Sugar Maple owner, Quentin Gladstone—an unhoused young man who found community and purpose with a welcoming church and its charismatic minister, Solomon Randolph. But when Randolph puts the untrained Quentin in charge of the gospel music for his grand revival, Sugar Maple unleashes a frightening higher power that forces Quentin away from his found family, in terror and shame.

    Episode 5: Belinda Rose

    Episode 5: Belinda Rose

    As Terrance drives to Atlanta to follow a new lead, he recounts the story of Belinda Rose, a Nashville country singer who delivered a single 70s hit, written on Sugar Maple, which her duplicitous boyfriend won in a poker game. Why did Belinda Rose leave the country just as her star was rising? Why do people close to Sugar Maple keep disappearing? And why is Terrance growing certain that the murdered Thread Tree is using Sugar Maple to end the world?

Incredible accomplishment

This podcast is an incredible accomplishment. It traces the history of popular music, from honky-tonk to Motown to heavy metal, weaving a compelling storyline throughout. It features stunning original music that makes me truly appreciate genres I never really even listened to before. All of the performances are stellar, the storyline is incredible, and it’s completely professionally produced. Tom Marshall and all involved ought to be enormously proud of their work here. Well done!

Amazing little audio movies ,

Like the Red Violin, but with a Telecaster

These are sooo good. Each one is like a little ear movie for your ears, they’re so rich and enticing. I’m not really much of a podcast person, but this one, and most of the Osiris projects are definitely worth the time.
