Stories told through found audio from an alternate universe. Season four, "The Cradle" is a story about a mother and daughter as they attempt to lead a family-centric commune surviving on the fringes of society. Narrated by Mona Grenne. Written by Jeffrey Cranor and Janina Matthewson. Original music by Mary Epworth.
The storytelling approach in this podcast is unique, introducing the setting gradually, the way a mystery novel presents a case. Listeners post get to piece together information and grow in their understanding of this unique alternate history world.
No other show out there is making use of the podcast medium as well as Within The Wires. It's immersive and slipstreamy all at once. Plus, I get a nostalgic kick out of hearing the KCHUNK of a tape deck in my headphones in 2019 ?
