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. Here’s the first episode of the Bridge.For more info about this episode and the show, check out: http://www.thebridgepod.com/

Behind the Collective

We are living in unprecedented times. Not just with the pandemic, but with our country, and the rest of the world, speaking up and fighting against racism that has been going on for centuries. Changes need to happen at every level of our society. If you can, please help support Black Lives Matter: https://www.thecut.com/article/george-floyd-protests-how-to-help-where-to-donate.htmlI’d also like to recommend season two of Scene on Radio, Seeing White, which goes into the history of systemic racism in the United States: https://www.sceneonradio.org/seeing-white/ And the latest episode of Point Mystic where you get to hear from an activist known as Xochitl in her own words of what it is to be Black in America: https://radiopublic.com/point-mystic-6rNAXq/s1!cd286_______________________________________________________________________________________________________Earlier this year, I was invited by Mike Troup of the Earth Collective to participate in a new show, Behind the Collective, where we put each other in the hot seat and ask questions about each other’s shows. In this particular episode, we talked about each of our first episodes, which led to discussions about writing, creativity, storytelling, and podcasting. Mike has graciously allowed us to run this episode of Behind the Collective for the Ostium listeners. Enjoy!
Middle Below is an audio drama about ghosts, cats, and the slightly odd people who look after them.' There is a world that runs parallel to ours, a world filled with ghosts. They call it 'The Below.’ Middle:Below is the story of a disgruntled traveler, a frustrated writer, a slightly nervous ghost and a very enigmatic cat. Whatever adventures await them, we can be certain, that bad things will happen.I first came across David Devereux’s writing and acting in the fantastic Tin Can Audio which pulls you right in from the start. When I heard about the new show Middle Below I was immediately interested and excited, and the first season has been everything I hoped for and more. Well written, extremely well acted, funny, happy, sad and even scary at times. I was over the moon to get the chance to make this crossover happen and to bring out worlds together. If you haven’t listened to Middle Below yet, you really should.This episode was co-written by David Devereux and Alex C. Telander.The part of Jake is performed by Chris Fletcher.The part of Taylor is performed by David Devereux.The part of Gil is performed by David Pellow.And the part of Sans the cat is performed by Megan “Bucky” Buchanan.Sound design was done by David Devereux, with editing and production by Hail and Well Met Podcasts.

He’s a tinker, a biohacker, and a part of Tinker International which is a volunteer organization that’s now associated with bio warfare.A show that was recommended to me by Hail and Well Met Podcasts, and was one of the last additions to this crossover season.

And then once I started listening I was even more drawn in by the interesting characters, the explored history and mythology of the world, as well as its complete unpredictability.

Slumberland invites your ears to visit Slumberland, a small island town in the US. Come along with Thomas Edward M, the freelance soundman. He's been hired to meet the locals and record their oral histories for the town's time capsule. The unfolding history of the town mixes folklore, paranormal, mystery and humor.I had this podcast recommended to me a couple years ago and was delighted to find a lot to catch up on. It was the first show I listened to that had episodes on the shorter side and it did take me a little getting used. I marathoned it pretty quickly and now I avidly await each new episode and know it’s always going to be a delight. The creator does a great job of creating a whole unique world with this island and its strange and unusual characters, as well as taking listeners back into the past and how things came to be. I heartily recommend you start the show from the beginning, each episode is a little gem in this deep and wondrous jewelry box.This episode was written by Alex C.

The Earth Collective is a sci-fi audio drama delivered as a first hand account from the eyes of Joseph Crane, Humanity's "last historian," as he attempts to chronicle their survival in rolling cities known as The Collective, fleeing from a malicious entity only found on the dark side of the planet.I remember discovering this podcast either just as it debuted in February 2017 or shortly after and the story drew me in right away. The creator has clearly done so much work in world building and making it complex and fascinating. With each episode, it feels like you’re going deeper into a work of epic science fiction. And the great thing is even though the show is now in it’s third season, there’s still so much story to tell about the world of Oasus, and its people. If you enjoyed this crossover episode, subscribe to the Earth Collective, start at the beginning and be transported to a distant world where a future humanity is eking out a new life on a strange planet.This episode was co-written by Mike Troup and Alex C.

I have listened through the whole thing and have enjoyed it.the only thing I take issue with is the amount of “f” bombs.you can make a really great story without them and I wish they would.i just think they take away from the story.

My humble opinion: This, along with the last two episodes have been... Barely palatable. I love the idea of this story, but Monica's character is too loquacious. And not in a 'comfortable' way. The writing is ambiguous.. Like Alex doesn't know how to get his point across succinctly. Again, I love the story.. Just think the delivery could be much improved.

He purposely calls out and avoids eating sounds, my misophonia is eternally grateful!

I find the main character very unrelatable. Also he knows too much, like he jumps to conclusions (that I never would with the information provided) and happens to be right.

It's like a creepypasta narrated by an extremely bored man

The story seems pretty interesting but the show is completely ruined by the acting. I can’t begin to describe how bad it is. (And if mouth sounds particularly bother you, run away now.)

this story sounds interesting..BUT this narrator has a whole bunch of extra stuff going on in his mouth. I don't know if he needs to take a drink or what. it makes it impossible to listen to. i just know that if you were to meet this guy he would for sure have that spittle trapped at the corners of his mouth. hopefully they can edit that out, that yuck sound...until then I can't make myself listen to another drop.
