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.

A Quick Announcement

A Quick Announcement


Hello hello! Team Bridge wanted to let you know that we are indeed still here, and that Episode 11 will hopefully exist...sometime in August. Life is a little hectic at the moment, but we're hard at work on getting the rest of season one out to all of you. Once we release Episode 11, we plan on taking another break, as we need a little extra time to work on some very special episodes. In the meantime, be on the lookout for an announcement about our merch shop opening, as well as (hopefully) our Patreon! If you're interested in A) a glimpse into Episode 10's cliffhanger's resolution or B) a slight spoiler for Episode 11, jump to the end of the recording. Thanks for being so awesome! Team Bridge
As the Watchtower 10 crew questions Frank's intentions, they're interrupted by an unexpected - and very dead - visitor. Roger and Kate play good-cop-bad-cop, while Etta and Bertie make a foreboding discovery. Tweet us: @bridge_podcast Find us on Facebook: Email us: Find us on tumblr:
The Watchtower crew investigates what brought their unexpected guest to their doorstep - and what he might've brought with him in the process. Roger borrows something, hearing an old voice and some new ones, too. Bertie tries to be assertive. Kate has her doubts about ventriloquism. Etta must choose between being scared and asking important questions.  And Persnickety Pete has something he'd like to say. This episode contains mentions of poison, blood, and possible death by fire. It also uses some disembodied whispering. Persnickety Pete's Message was composed and performed by Jake Hull. Some sound effects provided by Dead Signals, creators of the Archive 81 and The Deep Vault podcasts. Tweet us: @bridge_podcast Find us on Facebook: Email us: Find us on tumblr:
Despite her better judgement, Kate sends a message. Credits read by Liz Hull! Music by Jake Hull!   Tweet us: @bridge_podcast Find us on Facebook: Email us: Find us on tumblr:

nah the piano music wasn't deafening. it was just fine - if not a bit Actually the random Etta monologs are super melodramatic too. it's a promising audio drama though. Etta is a little bit annoying but it could be worse. I think she's trying to be loveably theatrical but it's not working. I'll keep listening though because overall it's pretty good!

I wanted to listen to this but the deafening piano music drowning out the narration put me off...why do all podcasts do this now?so distracting, literally could not hear what a word she was saying, pick talking or music, not both!
