34 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.

Love this show!

After listening to The Bridge for the second time, I’m putting all my thoughts here and hoping I convince someone out there to listen to this show, because it deserves to be found and heard and loved by more people. It combines found family and clever subversion of horror tropes and complicated characters and SO much sass and too many other awesome things to name. It’s so atmospheric, and the voice acting and music are incredible. It’s hilarious, heartwarming and also heartbreaking, dark, twisty, multilayered, and packed with alternate-timeline lore, using stories-within-a-story in strange and surprising ways. It has one of the best representations of depression out there, alongside a beautiful portrayal of a ragtag team turning into a family. Etta, Bertie, Kate, and Roger have so much personality and heart and are some of my favorite audio drama characters. Give the first few episodes a listen—you may well fall in love with it like I did.

So glad I kept an open mind

I read the reviews and almost gave up before listening

But I thought of all the podcasts I’ve listened to and thought it’s only about 30 min and it’s free

So I listened

I don’t know who wrote the bad reviews but those people must all be the same person that has a vendetta of some kind
This is very good. Perfect? No. But that’s what is charming

The people who do this are good and funny and eerie and FABULOUS SPRINKLED EOTH A GOOD FUN STORY

Give it a chance. If it’s not what you are interested in it’s ok. But they are not using the f word and making tasteless jokes like many do

It’s fun

Thanks for the ride. It’s interesting

Used to love it

I used to really love this podcast and I still think it’s pretty great, story-wise, but the whole crew is so unprofessional. There’s huge gaps between episodes and no sign of them ever even finishing season ONE even though it’s been literal years. They constantly say they’re working on the next episode and that they’ll have a new one out, but it’s always a lie, and when they do release a new episode it’s obvious it was just slapped together, with the audio sounding strange and bad quality. I hope they’re not still taking money on Patreon because at this point it’s just stealing money.
