Presenting: Broken Road

17 minutes

Hi everyone. We survived the Fringe! Which means we have some new live episodes of Civilized coming to you in the fall, before we start on recording Season 5. 

In the meantime, we want to introduce you to a brand new sci-fi audio drama that we really love: Broken Road.

Broken Road, Episode 1: Some Chips You Don’t Cash In

In a near and uncertain future, veteran Emmett Lee wanders the countryside in search of replacements for his obsolete military-issue implants. Despite his failing battery and corrupted memory files, our reticent hero joins forces with Rebecca Clark, a single mom struggling to keep her farm afloat, against the agritech giant Chem-O-Grow and its brutish genetically-modified enforcer Arlin Frey.

Content warnings: Cursing, violence, death, adult themes, discussion of war, body modification.
