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.

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.

I Want to Love It

I really, really want to like this podcast. The story and ideas are wonderful, the characters are emotional and complex, and the lore is amazingly intriguing and pulls you in....but there are so many reasons it’s difficult to listen to. There’s a bunch of weird, overused sound effects, some characters have notably worse audio than others, and, worst of all, a lot of the time it’s impossible to tell what’s going on. There will be some incomprehensible sound, a character will say something vague, and nothing will be described well enough. That’s one example of how something might go. It’s infuriating, because I love the story, but it’s so hard to listen to. This could be great. But it isn’t.
