Reviews of The Bright Sessions
The show revolves around a group of adults and several young adults that all share a special attribute they all have a supernatural abilities in some form. Yes I know it sounds so cliche from today's world but somehow Lauren Shippen the creator has gone beyond what could of been a TV knockoff and made a vast world that feels so real. In this day and age we are so skeptical of the people running our government and wonder who’s truly behind it all and what they’re hiding. - Podcast Junkie

Took awhile to finally get into the plot and story, but it was good.

Lovely show. Excellent writing, great ideas well expressed. Also, the ending is very in-line with how the characters are set up (although it is also a little anti-climactic)

Concept: superheroes need to go the therapy. Masterfully executed and emotionally engaging, this show is one of my favourites.

Starts really great but eventually becomes a lot of talk about... stuff. Still, well worth listening to.

Think the cast from the TV show, "Heroes", in therapy. What we have here is the story of a therapist whose clientele is made up exclusively of people with paranormal abilities, everything from telepathy to teleportation in space and time. I don't know about you, but I find it comforting to know that superheroes are as dysfunctional as the rest of us. And if you think these folks are wandering around untethered, rest assured that there is a shadowy government agency out there keeping a close eye on things. The creator and writer of this show, Lauren Shippen, was chosen by Forbes Magazine for this year's "30 Under 30 - Media" list. Universal Cable Productions and Dark Horse Entertainment (remember them?) are developing the show for TV.

"The first season of the audio drama “The Bright Sessions” (written by Lauren Shippen) may be two people talking in a room, but it’s some of the most compelling storytelling and acting I’ve heard in a while..." http://audiodramareviews.com/audio-drama/the-bright-sessions-season-one

Ordinary people with extraordinary powers. Difficulties like growing up, meeting love, ambition and hate is made all the more complicated, when you have unusual powers. Great show, outstanding performances.

Brilliant premise, excellent writing, and top notch acting, combined with superb sound design and music make this show a must listen. How do you think people cope when they have 'special' powers. Dr Bright provides help. A simple structure in the beginning slowly transforms into a more complex story with plot layers being exposed episode after episode. Great Stuff

Sitting in the therapy sessions for powered people. This can get really emotional and intense. I have cried many times while listening to this.
