2021 Showcase: Transmission Folklore
This is Orion Ibert, voice of Carter, producer, and editor of Transmission Folklore, an urban fantasy audio drama podcast produced by the Lavender Lemonade Collective that follows the absolutely-not-a-kidnapping of Sorrel and the anxious driver, Carter. After Carter saves Sorrel from being drowned in a disgusting Houston bayou by a siren, the pair go on a life-changing and life-saving road trip up the Mississippi River. As Carter and Sorrel learn more about each other and the world of magic around them, they soon realize that the car problems they seem to have all too frequently are far more normal than anything they’ve ever faced before. This episode is a combination of episodes 12 and 13 of season one. Thank you for listening.

2021 Showcase: Blood Rage Mode
Hi. I’m CK Kaur, and I am the writer of Blood Rage Mode.
Blood Rage Mode is about the adventures, and misadventures, of three supernatural best friends:
Ag, a hot headed lone werewolf alpha with a mysterious past;
Selene, a city witch who has difficulty deciding in which coven to join and specialize;
and Aveline, a half-vampire half-elf who struggles with a rare genetic blood disorder which causes her to sleep one hundred years for every ten years she is awake.
Blood Rage Mode is a modern day fairytale about friendships between minority groups (a werewolf, witch, and vampire), and perhaps more specifically, strong, empowered female friendships.
Through the villains, the good boys, Blood Rage Mode explores the parallels between them and neo-nazis, incels, and white supremacists.
It features a stellar ensemble cast showcasing a variety of talent from the lower mainland of British Columbia.
“Blood Rage Mode” subverts stereotypes and challenges typical fantasy tropes in an effort to create an empowered story for those who are traditionally marginalized and voice-less.
Thanks for listening! We hope you enjoy the adventures of Ag, Selene, and Aveline.
