I love the story, I love the characters. I want more of them and I want them to be happy. I both need, and absolutely DO NOT need, more Nicos in my life.
There’s a level of tense glee throughout Valence. You could attribute it to the hyper specific and all-enveloping soundscape that bring the world of New Candler to life or even the excellent vocal performances throughout that make this heightened sci-fi/fantasy world feel grounded and navigated by flawed, 3-dimensional characters. Whatever it is, Valence presents a full experience. Through the story of Liam Alden wrestling with his birthright as a Magic User (‘muse’ in the show) there is a palpable sense of us vs. them, science vs. magic, industry vs. human interest, haves vs. have-nots, that make the story feel relevant and accessible. Honestly I found myself thinking a lot of the Uncanny X-Men and Mr. Robot as I listened to the storylines involving tech heists and assembling a ragtag group of outsiders who are all galvanized to action against a technology conglomerate set on making life easier for some, by jeopardizing it for others.
VALENCEThank you! We're so glad to hear you enjoy the show, and that it gave you Mr. Robot vibes! Mr. Robot is one of our inspirations for the podcast and the creators are all fans of it. As for a ragtag gr…
i love this podcast so much, its one of my favorites that i listed this year. i love the character and the story a lot
This show manages to illustrate an internal monologue in a clear, engaging, and effortless way. I love a world of shady government actors, mental health, magic, and magic-suppressants. I’ve got a feeling I’ll catch up on this series soon, and I’m already excited for season two.
Great writing and very eccentric characters to be interested in.
VALENCEThanks for the review! There are more eccentric characters to be introduced in the future. ;)
Only a few episodes in but I am SO intrigued as to where this is going to go. Love the fantasy element of this podcast. It really speaks to my inner nerd.
VALENCEThanks, Alan! We hope you continue to listen, as it only gets better!
Top quality production values and acting. Give it a listen.
VALENCEThank you! We put a lot of work into the show and are so glad to hear you enjoy it!
Valence is like no other audio fiction show. Magic is real, unless you get some high powered tech to restrict it so you can be "normal." And that's the show in a nutshell. There's weirdness in every sound, every character, nearly every choice, but it's all presented in a world that's just close enough to being familiar that you always feel grounded, like "normal" is a threat around every corner. A more stable world feels possible, but why would you chose it over this one? Why would you get a Halo? It's much better to keep your magic and embrace your weirdness. Listen to your inner monologue. Unless that inner monologue is like Liam's. In which case, maybe see a therapist. :)
I think Valence is great so far. It's still early on but I want to hear more. I wont spoil the magic, but I like the way magic is performed, there's a fresh take on it when I thought I had seen it all. Thanks for making the podcast, I'm definitely a subscriber listener.
I'm loving this show so much! You can tell there's so much put into the world building, even though it's not shoved into your face. Also, being able to hear the thoughts of the main character is a brilliant portrayal of his mental health, and it's super interesting!
I adore this show! The writing? GREAT! The acting? FANTASTIC! The sound design? WOW! The characters VALENCE are super interesting and the plot drew me in right away. This world where magic mixes with tech is fascinating. Magic users must decide between leashing their magic (gaining society's approval) or keeping their freedom. A small group bands together to investigate the shady corporation behind the newest "great invention" making magic scarce. What will they find? (I don't know, the episodes are still coming out!) I highly recommending VALENCE.
