36 episodes

It's an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew.

Watchtower 10's necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who's only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies.

Unbeknownst to the general public (but totally knownst to each watchtower's crew), these stations also hold a secret that could potentially destroy the world...or save it.

The Bridge is a fictional serialized fantasy podcast about the monsters we fear, the monsters we can become, and the stories we leave behind.

I. Love. This. Show. So. Much.

I listen to basically every weird and scary podcast out there. And this is my all-time favorite. Is it for everyone? YES. YES IT IS. GET ON THEIR LEVEL AND LISTEN.

Quirky and fun

I loved listening to this podcast. It’s such a cool storyline even if it’s hard to follow at times. The folk lore about the bridge (aka mini episodes) are spot on. Super enjoyable and imaginative. The stories at Watchtower 10 are a little harder to follow. It’s hard to note when time lapses. There’s also so much time between episode release that it sometimes seems like the writers forgot where they left you. Overall - I love it!!! It’s endearing, and fun, and imaginative. Great audio quality, acting and original music. Incredible story and setting.

How Whimsically Brillant!

I was recently introduced to this podcast by a friend, and honestly I went in without really knowing what to expect, even after reading the synopsis and seeing the general idea of the podcast. But after just listening to two episodes, I have fallen in love with this podcast. The characters are amazing with such distinct voices and features. I am unsure how other revieweres were complaing about the voice acting because I LOVEEEE THIS SHOW. I can't believe I am three years late, but at the same time, I am grateful to come across it now because of the sheer number of episodes I get to listen to before I join the misery ship of having to wait for more. This podcast really is a hidden gem, and I am here to sing the praises. Everything from the music to the characters are so loveable in their own way. I find this podcast so whimsical, weird, and I love it so much. If someone were to ask me the best way to describe it, I would say it has "A Series of Unfortunate Events" vibe, and also like you're stepping onto the elevator of the Hollywood Tower Hotel in the Twilight Zone. I can only give major kudos to the creators and also all the actors on the show. They are a phenomenal bunch and have truly built something so special. Can't wait to listen to more and tune into Watchtower 10.
