In the future, Kenji finds that tracking down loved ones is significantly harder when every door, elevator, and kiosk mocks his every effort. Morning Glory is written by Charles Yu, and performed by SungWon Cho, Deborah Ann Woll, Andre Sogliuzzo, Moira Quirk, Suzy Nakamura, and Helen Sadler.
Evelyn always assumed her partner would be the one whose life would disappear, one early-onset Alzheimer's memory at a time. But that was before Evelyn jumped decades into the future... Dido's Lament is written by Aidan J.S. Menuge and performed by Sarah Drew.
After disappearing for twenty years, Malcolm returns home and quickly discovers his life has changed in ways he could have never expected. Iterations is written by Daniel H. Wilson and performed by Dan Stevens, Calista Flockhart, and Helen Sadler.

DUST is proud to announce a special second season, FLIGHT 008, made in partnership with XPRIZE. Eleven of the biggest writers in science fiction, through eleven unique stories, follow a single thread: a non-stop flight from Tokyo to San Francisco that passes through a wrinkle in space-time and lands in the year 2040. With performances by Dan Stevens, Danny Trejo, Calista Flockhart, Alfred Molina, Reid Scott, and Keith David, FLIGHT 008 is an audio experience unlike any other. Season two premieres March 25th. The future has arrived.
Dismissed as primitive and ridiculed by her own allies, a single human ship is all that stands between those allies and oblivion. Just One Ship is written by Alexander Bruce, performed by Aaron Cavette.
What happens when the machines we create begin thinking for themselves? Will they see us as their creators...or as oppressors? A Ghost in the Machine is written by Ed Bartlett, narrated by Sabra May, and performed by Natalie Pelletier, Amy Argyle, Matthew Wolf, Tara Novic, George Aivaliotis and Paddy Wilkins.
When an AI awakens after the genocide of the human race by an unknown alien species, it sets off on a path of vengeance across the known universe...and beyond. Chrysalis is written by S.H. Serrano, performed by Matthew Wolf.
When a budding sculptor undergoes a procedure that allows him to focus on his dreams, he quickly learns that success may not be what he wanted it to be. The Motivation Cure is written by RK Nickel, performed by Matthew Wolf, Devon Sorvari, and Hugo Armstrong.
From Philip K. Dick, visionary behind Blade Runner, Minority Report, and Total Recall, comes his first published story: Beyond Lies the Wub. When a space crew purchases a creature on an alien planet for food, they quickly come to discover that the "wub" is more than meets the eye. This episode is performed by Moira Quirk.
A very special Halloween two-part episode featuring the creepy tales Sanctity by Alan O’Doherty and Targeted Adverts by Phoebe A. Xavier. In Sanctity, the perils of artificial intelligence might be found not in rebellion, but in absolute obedience. Targeted Adverts follows Madoc, who, while attempting to evade an overly persistent advertisement, accidentally turns his world upside down. Both stories are performed by Matthew Wolf.
When an inventor’s creation accidentally kills all of the world’s top scientists, he is sentenced to live out the rest of his life within his very invention. This is Pendulum, written by visionary storyteller Ray Bradbury, co-written with Henry Hasse, performed by Devon Sorvari.
A century after dying in a mountaineering accident, Peter is brought back to life...only to find that his twentieth-century hobbies are twenty-first century terrorist crimes.

When a genetically-enhanced assassin is sent on a mission to hunt down terrorists on a faraway planet, she is forced to confront facts about herself that she’d rather keep buried—deep, deep down. This is Genborn, written by RK Nickel, performed by Moira Quirk and Andre Sogliuzzo.

Not compelling. The plot holes stick out like a frozen corpse protruding from a glacier

I'm not a hero. My job is just digitizing records (medical, govt, etc) for people who are doing the frontline jobs. So I got orders to come to work even during our Stay At Home and Workplace Reduction orders. I don't want to but can't financially or morally sit at home. I cried when I saw there's new episodes to listen to while I'm working. Thank you!

Cassiopeia

it was stupid. with more thought to it , it could've been sth, but now it's just ridiculous. why did they resurrected him , if they wanted to eventually kill him? the characterizations was not sensible and it was clear that the writer, itself didn't understand its characters.
