VALENCE

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.

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.

Indiegogo for valence season 1 IS NOW LIVE

For Season 1 of VALENCE, we are just looking to fund enough to pay the people involved in our production!

The Indiegogo campaign launched August 31st, 2019, and runs for one month, ending on September 30th 2019. The campaign has a flexible goal of $4,000, all of which is going towards the producer and actors. The flexible goal ensures that all received payment will go towards VALENCE regardless of whether or not the campaign succeeds.

As an incentive, Hug House will be publicly sharing a casting announcement for every 10% of the campaign. At each subsequent 10% landmark, a cast member will be chosen via random dice roll and announced on the Hug House Twitter.

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