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. 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.

Premiering on January 11th, 2020, VALENCE is a full cast, fully designed urban fantasy fiction podcast.

A RadioPublic embed for the first teaser trailer for VALENCE, which can also be found here.

You can follow the progress of VALENCE by listening to Scoring Magic, a documentary about Hug House founders Anne Baird, Katie Youmans, and Wil Williams creating it together.

valence season 1 INDIEGOGO

The Indiegogo campaign to fund Season 1 of VALENCE launched August 31st, 2019, and ran for one month, ending on September 30th, 2019. The campaign had a flexible goal of $4,000, all of which went towards paying the producer, actors, and composer. Overall, the campaign raised $4,980.

Perks of the Indiegogo campaign included things like access to one (1) secret, a bespoke magic sound, and a mysterious package from Halo, Inc.

Season 1 of VALENCE wouldn’t have been able to happen without the generous contributions from our supporters on Indiegogo!
