    May 2020 Update

    Hi wanderers, it’s Eli, creator of The Far Meridian and voice of Peri. In the effort to keep our production team healthy and safe in the face of COVID-19, Season Three has been delayed. That said, we’ll be dropping the first of three minisodes on Monday, May 11th to bridge the gap to our final season. We’ll also be releasing some short prose set before the events of the show on our Patreon, accessible to both patrons and non-patrons alike.
    We’ve paused the Patreon for now but if you’re in a spot to donate, please consider donating to funds helping those affected by COVID-19, especially essential workers and those who may have lost their job. 
    And finally, thank you for being a part of the Far Meridian community. Thank you for caring for each other and allowing yourselves grace. We may not know what our futures hold, but we’ll find our way, together.

Subjective Opinions ,

The Far Meridian

Quite simply one of the most beautifully crafted audio dramas available. I just finished my third listen, and I discover new layers to it every time.

Through its expert sound design and Barraza’s extremely talented narration, this podcast crafts a unique tone that I’ve yet to see replicated in other audio dramas of its type.

A big factor of this show’s unique approach to storytelling stems from its protagonist, Peri. When her lighthouse home starts magically taking her to new places, Peri does answer the call to adventure… But at her own pace. What follows is a beautiful journey of self-discovery that assures its audience that hey, it’s okay if you don’t have everything all figured out. The you today may not be able to handle things, but maybe the you tomorrow can.

Found something special

This podcast is really beautiful with its calming music and poignant story. I would go and relisten to the paper airplanes when I’m having a bad day.
