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.
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.
Top quality production values and acting. Give it a listen.
