Desperado – BONUS: Detour Through Meteor City

Rather than leave you with nothing for this week while we finalize the second half of this season of Desperado, we’re bringing you a little treat from our friends at Wrightwood Studios! Meteor City is an alternate history sci-fi audio drama created and produced by Wrightwood Studios. Wrightwood Studios is based out of the Quad Cities and comprised of a diverse team of writers, directors, actors, and sound designers. Enjoy episode 1 of Meteor City: “Patty Melt”.

In 2008, a freak meteor shower hit Detroit, killing hundreds and displacing thousands. Hundreds of people were quarantined for radiation exposure. 10 years later, Bianca Diaz, a vlogger returns to Detroit. Wanting a change of pace, Bianca decided to come back home for the 10 year anniversary, to tell the stories of the dead, the missing and the remaining citizens of  Detroit, now called Meteor City. Shortly after returning, Bianca realizes that Meteor City, New Detroit and the people left behind are not what they appear to be. One frustrating question after another leads Bianca to the truth… or more accurately the lies that New Detroit was built on.
