These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew. Watchtower 10's necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who's only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies. Unbeknownst to the general public (but totally knownst to each watchtower's crew), these stations also hold a secret that could potentially destroy the world...or save it. The Bridge is a fictional serialized fantasy podcast about the monsters we fear, the monsters we can become, and the stories we leave behind.

You can feel comfort in knowing that you're not alone. Well, technically we're all alone. We all die alone anyway. But this show is funny! Way funnier than dying alone. What's that, you're not single? You can listen too. But don't be smug about the fact that you're not enduring the torture that is dating apps. You probably fall asleep lonely while you're next to your spouse. You don't have to admit it, we know it's happening. It's fine, we're here for you.
