37 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.

Great story

Great story and acting as well thank you and please continue the pod. I fell like a lot of great shows started before their time and your show is one of them in 2020 I believe your ratings would go through the roof

Favorite Podcast Ever!!!

I absolutely love this podcast! I so very much wish to see it finished but it is still amazing even partly/mostly done. Even a second listen through is wonderful. Thank you so much for making it 💕.

Beckszy ,

Compelling storytelling at its best.

A great concept that is well developed and intriguing. I binged over a few days and was so sad when it came to end. The characters make you want to know more about their backstories, the history of the Bridge and its attractions along it span are fascinating. I cannot even fault this podcast for the occasional cliches and overacting because the story and characters are far too interesting and draw you in.
We need more! Please come back!!!!
