Little teeny tiny moo cow ,

the very best

within the wires is one of those shows that gets better every time you listen, and it’s phenomenal the first time through. the more you learn about the new society, the more details you notice, and i also have really cool dreams if i fall asleep listening to it so that’s a plus.

Within the Wires

Acting isn’t bad but this podcast is a snooze fest!

Narrative Genius

I’ve listened to Within the Wires the whole way through roughly 30 times. It is an intentional and deliberate act of narrative storytelling, designed to leave the listener pondering how government and society can influence the lives of its people.

The way this story interweaves storylines across seasons is complex and interesting. Season one captures interest with details that stand out of place from what one expects to hear, withholding enough information to make the following episodes feel needed, and at times, dire. Season two builds the world that season one was the product of, showing how global circumstances could allow season one to happen, while also examining a fraught and heartbreaking relationship between two passionate and skilled artists. Season three shows a behind-the-scenes look at the governmental functioning that create the world of season two and the harsh fear of season one.
