Project Length: Ongoing, 30-45 minute episodes — three seasons (Seasons 1 and 2 are complete and can be found on all podcast apps)

After being recruited by a new government agency, a depressive magic user must stop the unethical practices of his estranged family and the country’s most successful “medical” tech startup.
Audition due date: May 15th, 2022
Recordings due date: July 1, 2022
Accessibility: If you require additional support, including Deaf or Blind accessibility to the sides/directing assistance, please feel free to reach out. We also encourage soft recording due-dates to help with anyone who needs that level of flexibility based on income, working hours, and other mitigating circumstances. We have been and are able to do last-minute rewrites to accommodate emergencies and self-care required on behalf of the actor.
Content Warning: VALENCE is an intense, dramatic fiction podcast (with some levity, for sure). Themes of trauma will be discussed in depth, as well as:
- Abuse (discussed, not conveyed)
- Medical/scientific testing
- Suicidal ideation
- Anxiety/panic attacks
Please be aware that you may be asked to act in scenes that are emotionally intense in content.
Representation: We heavily advocate for more diversity in media and for that reason people of color, trans people, and people from other marginalized groups are particularly encouraged to audition. Yes, this means that trans men and trans women are both eligible to play any characters who use she/her and he/him pronouns. Nonbinary actors can play any character if they are comfortable using that character’s pronouns. Anyone who is cast will also be encouraged to be an active part of the character-development process. Similarly, actors of color are welcome to audition for any characters written as white or unspecified ethnicities, and the characters will be adjusted accordingly.
We have done our best in research while writing characters outside of our own demographics. All three creators of VALENCE are queer people with mental health disorders and disabilities; however, we are also three white people. We ask that actors either feel comfortable giving us feedback on changes that need to be made to more accurately represent characters outside of our demographics or let us know that you would, instead, like us to work with a sensitivity reader. You know your experiences better than we ever will, and we want to respect the voices within these demographics.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of our production, all applicants must be 18 or older, with no exceptions. We require everyone involved in the project to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and a contract, which minors are not legally able to sign. As such, we cannot employ minors in any capacity. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please reach out to us at email@example.com or through the Contact Us section of our website.
