Episode 21: F*** Energy

SCORING MAGIC
EPISODE 21
WRITTEN BY: WIL WILLIAMS, JOSH RUBINO, AND JOHN WESTOVER
PRODUCED BY: WIL WILLIAMS

It’s a very NSFW one, pals! And also, it’s got VALENCE S1E11 spoilers, so make sure you listen to that first! In this episode, I talk to Josh Rubino (Liam) and John Westover (Nico) about conveying “fuck energy.” But also, we talk about modern art, control issues, and how people convey their trauma.

RELEASE DATE: 06/26/2020
WRITTEN BY: WIL WILLIAMS

Our first episode, #ED7A9E (or Pink Carnation), is a hopepunk story in a world where everyone lives in a virtual reality world, as the Earth as we know it is no longer suitable for most life.

This episode was originally produced to be released on the feed for the Open World podcast, headed by TK Dutes and Rose Eveleth. You can find out more about Open World by following them on Twitter @OpenWorldPod, and we’ll be sure to let you know when Open World launches so you can hear this and more stories with a hopepunk theme!

HEXADEC is an anthology podcast featuring standalone episodes of a variety of themes and styles. It’s not just limited to fiction — we’ll have nonfiction, too! But what makes them a part of the anthology? Every episode is inspired by a hexadecimal color code.
