WIL WILLIAMS (WW) Narration: I have always been interested in how fiction can make the impossible sound real. My name is Wil Williams. I’m a podcast critic, and it’s probably not surprising to hear that my favorite medium in the podcast scene is fiction.
WW Field Recording: We’re recording . . . because I’m gonna pitch to you–I’m like–my soul is like leaving my body as I’m saying this–
WW Narration: For the last six or so years, I’ve wanted to make something in this space.
WW Field Recording: And I realized that a lack of creative endeavors is slowly killing me, and by slowly, I mean quickly.
WW Narration: I knew I couldn’t make this audio drama alone, and even if I could, I knew I needed some outside help.
