A mystery unfolds in PleasureTown as one of the pillars of this hedonistic society is found dead due to strange circumstances. Meanwhile, residents cope with the aftermath of a large and destructive fire.

As PleasureTown grew, it began to attract a different breed of wanderer. No longer were those drawn to the settlement society's rough and grizzled outlaws and misfits.

A nudist who is known for her pink parasol describes an encounter with a pair of Irish siblings. One loves her, and one wishes to possess her.

It’s the Feast of the Wretched! A stranger on her way to town encounters Jeb, who has become a man on the run.

Unfamiliar with PleasureTown? If you ask some, PleasureTown was paradise on Earth, a place where anyone could be and do whatever they wanted without fear of judgment or retribution from their fellow man or woman. If you ask others, it was a powderkeg of sin just waiting to explode. And if you ask others still, it’s an interactive serial podcast that takes the best of classic radio shows and mashes it up with the dark sensibilities of a contemporary cable television drama. How are we interactive? Well, we invite our listeners to join the story by submitting original art, writings, videos…heck, you name it. Oh, and we are part of the WBEZ podcast network.
In this week’s episode of PleasureTown, we join the Bartender as he ruminates on the retribution that fate has dealt him for his years spent as a hitman.

More often than not, it is those that we least expect that are our undoing. In this week’s episode, we rejoin the town’s stoic Bartender as he is confronted by the widow of the man he murdered. Will she be the one to give the Bartender the conclusion he has been bracing himself for? And later, we meet Warren Featherbone, a treasure hunter whose predisposition towards the arcane may be more hindrance than help. Will his dangerous profession catch up with him? Find out this week on PleasureTown.
Meet Bethany and Daniel, two amorous teens from Louisiana who are gifted with the ability to speak to the dead. Meanwhile, Claude and Cyrus struggle to find the finances for repairs as the town shows increasing signs of wear.
This week on PleasureTown, we join Clara, a young mathematician and PleasureTown native, as she decides to leave her family and community behind. Although Clara sets out to forge her own identity, it begins to dawn on her that life might have an all-encompassing symmetry that isn’t so easy to escape.
Amelia and Remy bond over making their totems for the Feast of the Wretched. Meanwhile, the medium Daniel encounters a spirit who tries to console his lovesick heart.
As PleasureTown transformed into a budding settlement, the community began to see a flood of diverse immigrants. With all the activity, it didn’t take long for the media to catch wind of the diamond in the red dirt, and so a reporter from New York City ventured out West to immerse himself among the eccentrics of the budding community.
