Coming Soon: VALENCE

This is a RadioPublic embed for Scoring Magic, “Coming Soon: VALENCE“.

The VALENCE feed is now live!

Welcome to New Candler, cultural epicenter of the United States. Visit Trudon Circle, an art mecca turned tourist trap where you can find musicals, massive neon billboards, street performers, and pickpockets. The bodega on 12th and Salt will sell you spells on the cheap if you know how to ask, but everyone knows they’re better quality on Root and Amsterdam. But if you’re a magic user — or, as pretty much everyone nowadays says, a muse — you’d better be wearing a Halo so your magic doesn’t make a ruckus or hurt anyone. In the city of New Candler, magic is scarce by design. A tech mogul wants to keep it that way. And a magic user wants freedom.

VALENCE is a serialized fiction podcast meant for adult listeners, coming January 11th, 2020. You can find more information at https://valencepod.com. You can support us on Patreon and get access to inspo images, bonus audio, and more.

Sometimes you’re a social media grandma. And that’s okay. Like everything with Hug House, our first step in finalizing our social media strategy was to identify our shortcomings and reach out for help–and then the second was all organization. We promise, running your socials doesn’t have to be as scary as it seems.
