A truly outstanding podcast that is masterfully written. You never know what is going to happen.

Description

At the Penumbra, you might follow Juno Steel, a brooding, sharp-witted private eye on Mars, as he tangles with an elusive homme fatale, tracks dangerous artifacts of an ancient alien civilization, and faces his three greatest fears: heights, blood, and relationships. Or you might enter the world of the Second Citadel, where the merciless Sir Caroline must corral a team of emotionally distraught all-male knights to defend their city against mind-manipulating monsters...even the ones they’ve fallen in love with. These audio dramas and more await you in the Penumbra, dear traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay. (Start with "1.01: Juno Steel and the Case of the Murderous Mask" or "1.09: Second Citadel - The Head of the Janus Beast.") The Penumbra is created and produced by Sophie Takagi Kaner and Kevin Vibert. Follow us on Twitter (@thepenumbrapod), Tumblr (@thepenumbrapodcast), or Facebook (The Penumbra Podcast).

Episode Date
3.21: Juno Steel and What Lies Beyond
01:01:24

Juno Steel has been feeling a little out-of-body, lately. Kind of like... well, it's been so busy he hasn't even had time to listen to his own thoughts. But the day of a wedding demands reflection: on where we came from, and where we are going.

And at the end of a good thing, is there any question scarier than "where are we going?"

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

3.18: Juno Steel and the Heart of It All (Part 2)
00:53:07

A legend can only die when the stories surrounding it stop being told. But a life, even one that generates legends in its time... a life is very, very fragile.  

Which is worth saving, then? A legend that will go on for ages... or a life, fleeting and delicate and precious?

00:38:37

It's showtime -- and what a show lies ahead of us. Tonight we steal a legend, darlings, and no one in this galaxy is more prepared for the task than we. Why, nothing could stop any one of us, I should think, which does raise an interesting question: if none of us can be stopped, what happens if one of us attempts to do the stopping?

Welcome to the Penumbra, darlings. I do hope you enjoy your stay.

3.16: Second Citadel--The Strong Arm of Justice (Part 2)
00:38:17

Love is, of course, the most heroic emotion -- but only if you're a hero while you're feeling it. If you're evil it's just... icky? Has anyone checked if evil people can feel love? Regardless: love and justice are exactly what's in store for the Vigilant He tonight, as he attempts to save Milltown from its masked captor once and for all!

BLACK LIVES MATTER.
00:02:19

Hi, Travelers. We are postponing this week’s episode for a few reasons, but one of them is that we’d like to take a moment to focus on this historical moment and to say that Black Lives Matter.

The Black community’s fight for human rights is not by any means a new one, but we do find ourselves in a time when many more non-Black people are waking up to it. We think it’s important to ask ourselves who we want to be at this crucial moment in history, and to behave in a way that we can be proud of.

With that in mind, neither of us are Black, so we can only speak for non-Black people and what we feel we ought to be doing under the circumstances. Those things are:

  1. Protesting
  2. Supporting the protests
  3. Donating to Black-led organizations that are fighting racism, police brutality, and the prison industrial complex
  4. Helping to educate and spread information
  5. Emailing/calling elected officials
  6. Talking to our own friends and family members who are not yet ready to be a part of the movement.

We will be putting links in the show notes where you can get information and find out more about how to support the BLM movement, but because we have already seen a lot of resources on #1-5, we wanted to talk a bit more about #6.

For Sophie, what that looks like is helping to educate family members who are already intellectually and emotionally in support of BLM, but are not yet sure how to participate. They sent their family members the Antiracist Allyship Starter Pack document (https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/0/d/1bUJrgX8vspyy7YttiEC2vD0DawrpPYiZs94V0ov7qZQ/htmlview), and they proposed that we each pick a few articles or videos to read/watch and then discuss as a family. That way, they are making it something they can do together, and acting as a resource but not a lecturer.

For Kevin, what that looks like is talking to loved ones who are coming from a very conservative starting point. He has learned that debating people is not actually a functional tactic, as much as he might like it to be, so he has created a document (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UVPSv_Fa5mHQIkkPCy38PJgQle4qtcyOJ-lsASh7SMk/edit) with some tips on how to get initially resistant friends or family members to align themselves with BLM without trying to debate them.

If you are not Black, we hope that you are doing everything in your power to be a part of the Black Lives Matter movement in whatever way you can. If you are Black, we want you to know that we stand with you.

Be safe, and make us proud. We’ll see you soon.

3.11: Second Citadel--The Devil in the Sunlight (Part 1)
00:25:47

Every city has its secrets that it keeps under lock and key -- and that's why Quanyii, Witch of the Wastes, has no interest in those. If every city has them, they're not exactly special, are they?

The big secrets though -- those are a little more hidden. Like... two locks and two keys. And Quanyii has one secret of the Second Citadel just like that that he wants. All he needs is an accomplice.

Oh, hello, little girl. Do you have a minute?

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

3.09: Juno Steel and the Shadows on the Ship (Part 1)
00:30:08

Vespa Ilkay's best days are behind her.

It doesn't matter if this statement is actually true; she has convinced herself that it is. Whenever Vespa looks at herself today all she can see is the woman she used to be: a galaxy-class doctor and assassin. A legend.

It doesn't matter if Vespa ever was a legend, or if she really has fallen as far as she thinks she has. She has made her decision, and tomorrow, she will act on it.

Although that may not matter, either. Because if the visitor in the night has their way, tomorrow will never come.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

3.08: Second Citadel--The Lovers of the Fallen Tower (Part 2)
00:34:16

In thirty minutes, the Bridge at the end of the world will be destroyed. It will go like this: there will be one explosion; then there will be two explosions; then there will be a terrible whistling, a shriek from beyond the stars; and then... silence.

And thirty minutes after that the Bridge will fall again. And again. And again. And unless Olala, Damien, and Arum can race up that Bridge and find their way back to a stable present before their thirty minutes are up, this end of the world might claim them, too.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

3.07: Second Citadel--The Lovers of the Fallen Tower (Part 1)
00:37:31

Untold years ago, a monster woman and a human man witnessed the end of the world. It went like this: one explosion; then two explosions; then a great rumbling; and then, darkness.

And that should have been the end of it, and them, and everything. But today, one-and-a-half monsters and two-and-a-half humans will witness that end again -- and if they aren't careful, it might be their end, too.

Christmas Special: Mick Mercury and the Night Before
00:34:18

A 100% canon adventure involving three best friends just as their adult lives are about to begin. "The Oldtown Trio," they call themselves, and they've been close for so long it seems like nothing could ever get in the way of them being friends forever. But something's been rubbing the Leader of the Gang, Mick Mercury, the wrong way for a few months now, and he's hoping one last big, exciting, completely-canon adventure will be just the thing to bring back the good old days.

And it just might. If it doesn't kill them, first.

3.04: Second Citadel--The Fool in the Garden of Death (Part 2)
00:32:18

There is no Fate, where the Universe is considered; there is only Intention. Things may have their proper place, of course, but once they get there... what they do is anyone's guess, including the Universe that brought them there in the first place.

Today's Intention:

The Four of Wastes, smelling blood and running, running; the Ax of Wilds, blade still wet with blood, in hot pursuit; and then...

Well, there are some things even the Universe doesn't know.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

Reduce all to what is most essential. A debutante's ball. A Gilded Globe. A ballroom floor, approximately 3000 square feet. An auction gone awry, An ex-detective shouting his cover at the top of his lungs, spitting it on the floor for all to see, an ingrate, an immature...

And my debts, mounting. Even now, with every second.

File it away. Reduce all to what is most essential. A debutante's ball. A Gilded Globe...

A family is formed. A journey begins. A new era dawns.

And out here, past the boundaries of City or government or law? Nothing stays guaranteed for long. Everything can change -- so you'd better hope you can keep up, or you might just get left behind.

It's crime time, baby. Let's go.

New Year's Special: Second Citadel -- The Frozen King of Flame
00:43:13

A blow of the hunting-horn. A battlecry. Boots that crash through snow and ice, the crackling of open flame, the bellow of an ancient, timeless beast of the frozen tundra.

They call him Old Cinder, the Frozen King of Flame. And this is just another New Year's celebration in the Southern Frosts.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Travelers. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.33: Second Citadel -- The Hallowed Halls of Helicoid (Part 2)
00:38:39

The creatures which thrive at the end of the world are enough to make even the bravest knight's skin crawl. Massive slugs of sentient slime and nightmare-guards to a fortress beneath a sea where nothing survives walk the halls that lead to Fort Terminus, and passing them will be no small feat.

Yet our heroes trudge on. On separate paths they draw closer and closer to the heart of this palace of horrors now, and if one thing scares them most, it's this: whatever lies within that terrible place terrifies the beasts outside it, too.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

A destination. Fort Terminus, the prison at the end of the world.

2.31: Juno Steel and the Man of the Future (Part 2)
00:45:22

Give up control.

That's what the thing that looks like Mick says to do. And in a year like the one Juno Steel has had, with the past, present, and city of the future all out to get him... why not? In a world where control can be torn from you so easily, so constantly... why not just give in, let that thing plug you in to its monstrous chip, and give everything you have away to it?

So why not, Juno? Why not give up control to the Theia Soul?

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

2.30: Juno Steel and the Man of the Future (Part 1)
00:43:08

Ramses O'Flaherty has been a busy man in recent days. A brand new way of life doesn't build itself, after all -- and before you can ever build it, you'll have to tear down the old life getting in everyone's way.

As Juno and Rita come up from the sewers they can see, immediately, that Ramses has succeeded in the latter goal. Oldtown is gone. It's never coming back. And in its place stands Newtown, a shining city on a hill, a paradise of Ramses's own design. The only questions, then, are these: what is paradise? And what must one do before they allow one through its gates?

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.29: Second Citadel -- The Spiral Sage (Part 2)
00:49:56

Legends say that far north of the Second Citadel, close to the Northern edge of the world itself, lives the Spiral Sage. They say he is a powerful being, a sacred warrior for human good who controls time and the wilderness itself. They say he is a great hero.

And he'd better be, because the number of creatures who need saving keeps on rising. First Lord Arum, then Rilla and Sir Caroline, and then... well, you'll just have to hear for yourself.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.28: Second Citadel -- The Spiral Sage (Part 1)
00:30:12

Far, far to the north of the Second Citadel lies the Terminus, a sacred or magical ocean (depending on who you ask), a place of power where world-changing things happen... and where monsters bicker for order and entertainment.

Sir Caroline and Rilla are deep in monster country, now: deep enough that the human tales of this land are fuzzy and indistinct. They've wandered into the land of beasts... and soon they'll find that the rules are a little different here.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.27: Juno Steel and the Long Way Home (Part 2)
00:37:41

Down in the sewers, home seems like a distant memory. It's even more distant for Detective Steel now, because even aboveground home doesn't feel like home anymore. Hyperion City has changed. Even its sewers have changed, and the things that crawl in those sewers.

And at the bottom of it all is Ramses Takano, or should we say Jack O'Flaherty, or should we say any number of names that once belonged to this incredible disappearing and reappearing man. Blink and his face has changed. Blink and your city has changed. Blink and your home has changed -- and once a thing like that has left you, can you ever find it again?

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.26: Juno Steel and the Long Way Home (Part 1)
00:36:45

Where is everybody?

That's the question that dogs Juno Steel now. He has bigger things to handle, he knows. Loose ends to tie up, old betrayals to pay back, and a mysterious mayor to reckon with. But even while city-sized mysteries weigh him down, the one that concerns him most is much closer to home... and while he tries to solve his disappearing act, all he has to keep him company is the tale of another disappearance, thirty years in the past.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.25: Second Citadel -- The Sportive Nymphs (Part 2)
00:41:50

Well, the boy-knights have definitely learned one thing about Nymphs: Nymphs LOVE Sport.

And at first, the boys loved Sport too... until it became clear that this was less throw-the-ball-around-with-your-friends-and-rivals and more blood sport. Twists and turns wait behind every rule of this violent game, and one such twist is just in the distance... where the sound of great wooden wheels signals the arrival of the Nymphs' long-awaited Damsel.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.24: Second Citadel -- The Sportive Nymphs (Part 1)
00:45:52

What's more knightly than rescuing a Damsel? Doing it better than all the other knights, of course... especially if those other knights are really, really annoying.

Sir Marc and Sir Damien do not like each other at all. Each is extremely important to the other's favorite person, and neither understands it in the least. So when a glade of beautiful forest-women offers to watch these men manhandle one another in manly competition, how can they say no? Saving ladies, being swooned over by ladies, flexing your muscles at ladies... isn't that what the knight life is all about?

So enjoy the moment, boys, and don't be like Talfryn, sitting on the sidelines and watching those nymphs very closely. Don't question that strange sound you hear, or those markings in the grass, or the way those nymphs are watching, abuzz with anticipation of... what?

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.23: Juno Steel and the Monster's Reflection (Part 3)
00:55:01

He tunes the radio, sorts through static for answers. Only questions, clean and clear: can one child really ruin the lives of his entire family?

A ghost-sound, like a voice; then, gone.

Why did he have to stay with her? Who was that at the door, all those years ago? Did his life, her life, Juno's life... did they all have to end this way?

No port in the static storm. But then, distant, a sound. He's found it, he thinks; tunes closer, and closer, feels the rush of answers, the relief of a mystery solved. It comes closer, a banging sound, like footsteps, echoing... and then he's found it.

And he wishes he hadn't.

Here comes Turbo. The Man of the Future.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.22: Juno Steel and the Monster's Reflection (Part 2)
00:25:24

"You did it in one day. One choice. When you let him in, when you let the hero rob us blind without taking a thing."

That's how Sarah Steel justified the murder of Benzaiten Steel, twenty-one years ago. But the day she was referring to was even older: fifteen years before that. A motive a long, long time in the making.

But what does that mean? How could one four-year-old child ruin three lives?

Juno remembers. But what he remembers... can't be right. It can't be.

It can't be.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

Today we journey within. Within the sands of Mars, to the clinic of Hanataba; within the Theia Spectrum and its labyrinthine connections; within the mind; within the past itself.

Try to throw away the past if you like, Juno Steel, but it lies within. And you can't lose your past without losing yourself... can you, little monster?

2.20: Second Citadel -- The Moonlit Hermit (Part 2)
00:55:20

Subject: the Keep of Titan's Blooms. Symptoms: spreading petrification; irritability; musical inclinations. Suggested treatment: cooperation with its master, Lord Arum, a creature who would scoff at the idea of tracking symptoms in the first place, a lizard whose scaly mind is ever-absorbed in suspicion, self-preservation, and ego.

Side effects may include: sleep loss; injury; frustration; entombment; and then...

Keep it together, Rilla. This is a medical record, not your diary.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.19: Second Citadel -- The Moonlit Hermit (Part 1)
00:52:00

Deep in the Swamp of Titan's Blooms stands a towering plant with no equal in the Second Citadel. It is in parts tree, fern, beanstalk, and a single gigantic flower -- and it is the Keep from which Lord Arum watches over his Swamp.

No human has ever seen the labyrinthine interior of this Keep until today. When Rilla awakens in the Keep she will come face-to-face with things she'd never dreamed she'd see, magical artifacts and creatures and mysteries that tie deep into the workings of the very universe... but unless she can find a way to escape, she may be the only human to ever learn of them.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

People bury a great deal beneath these Martian sands: bodies and secrets and even entire cities. But some things refuse to stay buried long – like the past. Those we thought lost, hoped lost, but never gone for good.

Buddy Aurinko is learning that lesson the hard way. Her buried past has a face and a name, and though all Buddy wants is to forget, her past does not seem content to be forgotten.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.17: Juno Steel and the Time Gone By (Part 1)
00:36:47

I do suggest you reconsider this particular destination, Traveler. Most places on Mars are dangerous, but the desert holds threats no human can survive. Radiation beats down from above, subterranean predators rumble below, and before you lies nothing but sand and heat and time.

And behind you… do you see that growing shadow in the distance, Traveler? It is always there. And depending on how you play your cards it may be your only way out… or the most dire threat of all.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

The Rita Minute 3: Happy Birthday, Mista Steel!
00:20:05

It's December 24th, and you know what that means: it's Mista Steel's birthday, and it's up to Rita to make it the best birthday ever in a star-studded special that includes both of Juno's friends and some people who are lukewarm about him. Can Rita put together the ultimate birthday party in thirty minutes? Maybe! Is Juno's birthday really on the 24th? This episode is not canon and the Martian calendar is famously inconsistent, so I don't know, what do you think!

2.16: Juno Steel and the Promised Land (Part 3)
00:53:57

If you had asked Erin Marshall D’Arc, the Free Dome was supposed to be for everyone. Anyone who wanted a home away from the War, she said, could have it.

If you had asked Marshall Erin D’Arc, the Free Dome was only for the best of the best. Only those who could create paradise, he said, could have it.

If you ask Mayor Pilot Pereyra, the Free Dome belongs to the highest bidder. Whoever finds it, they say, owns it – and they can do with it as they please.

And if you ask Juno Steel, Private Eye, drained of blood and confidence? You can keep your lousy Dome. Because something about this place doesn’t sit right with Detective Steel… and he’s rapidly running out of time to figure out what it is before Pilot decides they’re done with him.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.15: Juno Steel and the Promised Land (Part 2)
00:44:40

This case was supposed to be simple. Go into the Old Subway system, figure out what Mayor Pereyra is trying to get, stop them from getting it, then go home to a parade and a new world order. But now three days have passed, and the election looms, and still Juno, Alessandra, the Piranha, and Pilot Pereyra are down here, waiting for something in the distance.

It seemed like it was going to be simple. But in this line of work, when you’re dealing with mysteries of the present, past, and future… nothing is ever as it seems.

2.14: Juno Steel and the Promised Land (Part 1)
00:36:02

The story goes that two hundred years ago, when the War was at its most brutal, Erin Marshall D’Arc made the most important discovery in Martian history… and never shared it with anyone.

An election always makes itself about the present, and so Juno Steel never expected that this case would bring him two centuries into the past. Yet here he is, on the trail of Mayor Pilot Pereyra, with a Private Eye at his side and hundreds of years of history to dig through. Down here in the Free Domers’ ruins lie traps and treasure, if the tales are true… and if Juno wants to survive he’ll have to solve two mysteries simultaneously: one about the present… and one about a family more than a century dead.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.13: Second Citadel--Lady of the Lake
00:59:16

Special threats deserve special measures, and Queen Mira of the Second Citadel is a master of special measures. Enter Sir Caroline: a free radical knight, one of the Queen’s most capable and least trustworthy, and most likely the only hope the Second Citadel has of surviving the scourge of manipulative monsters that has plagued them for months.

Sir Caroline, newly-appointed Investigator-General of the Second Citadel, must assemble a team and head north, to the source from which these monsters flow. But they must be careful, because the village through which they’re passing has been struck by a terrible curse… and strange things lurk near the waters through which they must pass.

Late at night in the Museum of Colonized History, just a few short days before the election that will decide the fate of Hyperion City, Juno Steel is watching the Mayor participate in a heist gone horribly, horribly wrong. And typically a heist not going well would be great news for Juno Steel, Private Eye… if only his bust of that heist hadn’t also just gone belly-up.

The crooks will escape in half an hour. Juno and Captain Omar Khan of the HCPD are running out of time to stop them, and prevent the trail of bodies they’re leaving behind them from getting any longer. And they just might be able to do it, if nothing else goes wrong.

Which is, of course, precisely the cue for something to go very, very wrong indeed.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.11: Juno Steel and the Stolen City (Part 1)
00:39:56

“Look for a woman with one ear outside the First Museum of Colonized History in Hyperion City.”

That’s what the notice said to Yasmin Swift, both culprit and victim of Juno Steel’s last case. And ever since, Juno has been looking for that woman: for a month straight, while the clock ticks down, while the election creeps ever closer. He needs to find her, and quickly, if he hopes to keep Ramses O’Flaherty kicking, if he hopes to give this city a shot at anything better.

Today Juno’s going to find that one-eared gangster, and he’s going to learn something very important about leads along the way: sometimes it’s worth leaving a piranha on the line if it means you might catch a whale.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.10: Second Citadel -- The Treacherous Heart
00:35:24

On the third morning of the Festival of the Three, Sir Marc knew nothing of Sir Damien’s duels with the Lord of the Swamp. Sir Marc’s problems lay closer to his heart – or brain, as the case may be.

Because Sir Marc's condition requires medication, and medication is hard to come by out in the wilds. Luckily, Sir Marc has a medical professional on his side: Rilla, the herbalist of the Second Citadel. But unluckily, medicine in this overgrown world is never easy… and Rilla and Marc will have to think and act quickly if they’re going to keep the urge to save a life from killing them.

2.09: Juno Steel and the Dragon's Den (Part 2)
00:40:15

Illusions run wild in Polaris Park, whether they be holograms or robotics or secrets and lies. But here's something that's not illusory: Juno and Rita are in danger. Security chief Yasmin Swift, who was supposedly leading the investigation on a killing, is apparently the culprit... and until Juno and Rita find out where, how, and why she did it, every thrill in this theme park may be their last.

2.08: Juno Steel and the Dragon's Den (Part 1)
00:38:12

Someone is out to kill Ramses O'Flaherty -- and whoever they are, they should be here. A killer called this home, but it isn't any kind of home Juno's ever seen before. This is a place where the impossible happens, where an ancient heroine walks the streets, where dragons live on every mountaintop... and where nothing is ever as it seems.

Welcome to Polaris Park.

And welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.07: Second Citadel - Knight of the Crown, Lord of the Swamp (Part 2)
00:28:31

On the second night of the Festival of the Three, Sir Damien the knight will be dueling on Lord Arum the monster’s terms: in a forest of tricks and traps and cunning biological inventions. Sir Damien may have bested Lord Arum in a physical duel, but he certainly isn’t prepared for the sorts of challenges a second meeting with the monster will pose… but to be fair, Lord Arum isn’t prepared, either.

2.06: Second Citadel - Knight of the Crown, Lord of the Swamp (Part 1)
00:26:57

The Festival of the Three is the most important day of the year in the Second Citadel – or the most important three days, as the case may be. Battles and music and drink run free in Citadel’s square, and nearly every knight is in attendance… which leaves very few to guard from the monsters’ constant threat.

Luckily Sir Damien is on guard tonight, standing outside the Queen’s chambers with his trusty bow in hand. But Sir Damien is injured, and when a monstrous threat crawls in he may find that it’s a very different sort of challenge from what he’s used to.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.04: Juno Steel and the Lesson Learned (Part 1)
00:45:50

Working for a man as connected as Ramses O’Flaherty means access to places nobody else gets to go… or wants to, as it turns out. Because on this case Ramses is sending Juno into the Fortezza, Hyperion City’s prison for criminal genius, to stop a murder before it can be committed.

Who’s the victim, you ask? Well… Ramses, of course.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.03: Second Citadel - The Caves of Discord
00:29:56

In an overgrown jungle where monsters roam free lies the Second Citadel, one of humanity’s last strongholds in a hostile, hungry world. The people of the Citadel live their lives on the edge of a knife – knowing that any day a beast might storm their homes, knowing that now and forever the monsters are planning the final assault that will end humanity for good.

The only defense against a world that wants them dead are the Knights of the Crown, led by the Second Citadel’s Queen; and she has a very important task for her best knights. A strange cave has been claiming the lives of the people who live nearby… and if the Knights can’t find a way to work together, it will claim their lives, too.

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your journey.

2.02: Juno Steel and the Kitty-Cat Caper (Part 2)
00:41:21

Juno Steel’s first day back on the job has started well: he’s outnumbered, cornered, and almost certainly going to be killed any second now. Just life as usual in the PI business.

This case may be typical, but the solution will prove anything but. The mystery, after all, is one of the strangest Juno has ever encountered: who kidnaps a woman’s cat… just to replace it with an exact copy of the one they’ve stolen?

2.01: Juno Steel and the Kitty-Cat Caper (Part 1)
00:35:04

Detective Steel is in a slump, and Maia King might have just the case to bring him out of it. One problem: half the case is going to be figuring out what the case even is, because if Ms. King is to be believed, the culprit would have to be… well, something that doesn’t exist. The stakes are life-or-death here… so hopefully Juno can figure out whose life or death before time runs out.

CANON: The Full Penumbra Tour, Presented by the Concierge
00:06:47

Enough Travelers asked for a full tour of the Penumbra Hotel that not even the Concierge can say no. We hope you're ready for a long haul: it's a very big hotel, and strange things lurk inside it.

But be careful what you wish for, Traveler. Some stones, once turned, can never be returned... and some changes can't be undone.

00:51:17

In the wake of Season 1, Noah Simes (voice of Peter Nureyev) interviews co-creators Sophie Kaner and Kevin Vibert using questions submitted via Twitter, Tumblr, and email by YOU, the fans!

(Plus: stay tuned until the end of the Q&A for a big announcement!)

1.18: Juno Steel and the Final Resting Place
00:46:06

In all likelihood, this is the end. The only question is: the end of how much?

The end of Juno Steel… that’s pretty likely. Alone in a Martian tomb, Peter Nureyev gone, and Miasma’s experiments drawing to a close. Juno will outlive his usefulness any minute now, and if Miasma has her way he won’t outlive for long.

And if it’s the end of Juno Steel it may well be the end of Mars, too: with Miasma’s hands on the Egg of Purus, a superweapon strong enough to destroy the entire Ancient Martian civilization, this human civilization doesn’t stand much of a chance.

What does Miasma have planned for that Martian wasteland? Where is Peter Nureyev? And just how much will Juno Steel lose? Because surely, this is the end, the final resting place… but how much will end here, today?

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

1.17: Peter Nureyev and the Angel of Brahma (Part 2)
00:30:15

Who is Peter Nureyev?

The question has dogged Juno Steel, Private Eye for six months now, ever since he first met that master of disguises. It doesn’t help that he changes identities like most people change clothes: Rex Glass, Duke Rose, Miasma’s anonymous “the Thief…” How is Juno supposed to know who he is? How is Juno supposed to trust him?

He needs to know he can, because the clock is ticking. Miasma’s experiments on Juno won’t last forever, and once his usefulness has passed she’ll kill the both of them. And once they’re gone, who will stop her from using the Egg of Purus, the Martian superweapon she now has under her control?

Juno needs to trust Nureyev, but he hardly knows him. And so, that same old question remains: who is Peter Nureyev?

Welcome to the Penumbra, dear Traveler. We hope you enjoy your stay.

BONUS: The Revenge of the Janus Beast
00:08:34

In the Second Citadel's Hall of Trophies lie remnants of hundreds of monsters... and some of them are livelier than others. The head of the Janus Beast, for example: it's been here for weeks, and it's growing bored. Very bored. Can the Janus Beast's head break out of its case using nothing but its two faces, magic spells, and one tiny, tiny, little, really-just-impossibly-small brain?

1.15: Juno Steel and the Train From Nowhere (Part 2)
00:42:25

Somewhere in this desert lies the greatest weapon Mars has ever seen. It’s on board the Utgard Express, a mobile lockbox that shatters the speed of sound at its slowest setting, a train that no one has ever entered… until today.

The plan is set. Juno and Nureyev know exactly what they must do to board that train. If there are no surprises they’ll just wake up, drive to a drone launch site in the desert, hijack a drone, and then ride off into the sunset, Martian Weapon in hand.

If there are no surprises, that is. But someone in this desert doesn’t much like the idea of things going smoothly for Juno and Nureyev, and the first of his surprises should be arriving at their door right about… now.

1.14: Juno Steel and the Train From Nowhere (Part 1)
00:41:04

He arrived in the night: Peter Nureyev, the burglar who got away, the thief Juno Steel couldn’t catch.

Until he returned, things had been so simple: solving crimes, chasing a killer with her eye on Ancient Martian artifacts, and not letting personal business get in the way. With Nureyev, though, things always seem to get personal very quickly.

But Juno has no choice. Nureyev’s the only one with a lead on the killer Juno’s after. He knows exactly what she plans to take next, and according to him it’s something very big, and very dangerous.

According to Nureyev, anyway. But the question remains: can Juno trust Peter Nureyev?

1.13: Home
00:33:08

Lily doesn’t want to move. This house is the only home she’s ever known, and she loves it – but in a few days her family is leaving, and her older brother Jake says she’ll never see it again. Dad says not to worry about it, that it’s okay to be sad when you’re leaving home, but sadness isn’t what Lily’s worried about. Lily’s scared.

Because for the last few weeks Lily’s been having nightmares, strange dreams about a thing in the dark with cold breath and sharp teeth. Normally Mom and Dad help her with her nightmares, but… tonight, Mom and Dad are out of town. And normally Lily would just turn on a light and try not to think about the monster in the dark… but tonight, the power’s gone out.

1.12: Juno Steel and the Midnight Fox (Part 2)
00:33:57

Detective Juno Steel didn’t want to end up at a party tonight – in fact, he never wants to end up at a party – but he’s not exactly in a position to turn down the invitation. Juno's client, Valles Vicky, is here, too, and her former lover Ingrid Lake has made her a promise: either Vicky leaves her family for Ingrid… or Ingrid kills Vicky at midnight.

It’s eleven, now, and the clock is ticking. In one hour, Valles Vicky could be dead… and Juno could lose his only lead on what might be the most earth-shattering case of his career.

00:43:36

Valles Vicky’s Vixen Valley is your one-stop shop if you’re interested in fine dining, good conversation, beautiful people, and contraband from across the galaxy. Juno Steel needs the last on that list: he’s after a killer with an eye for Ancient Martian artifacts, and only Valles Vicky herself can help Juno catch that killer.

But a favor from Valles Vicky always comes at a price… and if Juno’s not careful, the bill might end up more than he can afford.

1.10: Second Citadel - The Head of the Janus Beast (Part 2)
00:13:52

You can’t blame them for thinking the Janus Beast was dead. Most of the time when you cut a creature’s head off, it doesn’t get back up again… and it definitely doesn’t start whispering in the night about secret treasures.

But this one did, and it was very, very persuasive. By the time Sir Marc and Sir Caroline wake, its whispers have already lured Sir Talfryn away. Can they find him before the Janus Beast reveals what other deadly surprises it’s hiding?

1.09: Second Citadel - The Head of the Janus Beast (Part 1)
00:30:24

Sir Marc and Sir Talfryn of Second Citadel aren’t technically knights. They do all the knightly things, sure – killing monsters, saving the innocent, bickering about breakfast meats – the only problem is that the other knights don’t agree that they’re… y’know, knights.

So what are a pair of free lancers to do? Get some respect, of course! Take down a monster so big that the Knights of the Crown have to let them join! The Janus Beast is gruesome, but Marc and Talfryn have dealt with monsters before. It’s the threats they aren’t prepared for that might tear these brothers apart for good.

1.08: Juno Steel and the Day That Wouldn't Die (Part 2)
00:41:52

It’s been a day of unpleasant surprises for Detective Juno Steel. He didn't expect to spend his day off down in the sewers, that’s for sure. He didn’t expect to go back to the town he’d grown up in and run away from, either. He didn’t expect to hear from his old friends Mick Mercury and Sasha Wire… and one friend who shouldn’t be able to call him at all from where she’s gone.

Surprises come with the territory when you're a PI on Mars, though. It’s all another thrilling adventure in the life of Juno Steel, Private Eye… until the biggest surprise of all threatens to turn this unhappy memory into an early memorial.

1.07: Juno Steel and the Day That Wouldn't Die (Part 1)
00:44:03

They thought they’d gotten away with it.

They were just kids when it happened. Juno Steel, Sasha Wire, and Mick Mercury – they were just kids when they did it. It was supposed to be a game, the kind kids play when there are no adults around to talk to… when there’s nobody around to tell them just how deadly their little game could be.

Detective Juno Steel has had that game on his mind a lot lately. Today is the twenty-fifth anniversary of that terrible day, and he hopes to spend it forgetting. Get a few drinks with Mick, get a few more drinks with Mick, and then pass out on the couch. Easy enough.

But this day wasn’t easy the first time, and it won’t be easy the second. The pieces slide into place, slowly: wasn’t this bar where that day all started? What’s Sasha Wire doing back in town? Within hours the game is set again – and deadlier than ever before.

1.06: The Coyote of the Painted Plains
00:43:57

They warned her about the bandits, but Mary Anne didn’t listen. She was engaged, she said; her fiancée was moving to Crossroads, and even if Crossroads was crawling with bandits, she didn’t have much of a choice. Sheriff Beau Richmond asked her to marry him; Mary Anne said yes; and that, as far as Mary Anne knew, was the end of it.

It might have been the end to Mary Anne’s entire story, too – decades married to a man whom she liked well enough, she guessed, stop asking, please – if the bandit hadn’t stopped the train.

Chance Sequoyah is a very special bandit. Sure, she’ll take the usual things: money, necklaces, watches. But she plans on taking something else, too: Mary Anne Watkins.

1.05: Juno Steel and the Prince of Mars (Part 2)
00:43:31

The Prince of Mars, the mascot of Saffron Pharmaceuticals, is the worst witness a detective could hope for. The Prince has an imagination like a runaway train: when he tells the story, drizzles come out hurricanes and a fender-bender comes out three weeks in traction. Only problem: the Prince is the only witness to a vicious crime, everyone thinks he did it, and he’s the one lead Juno has.

His story’s nonsense, of course. Flashing lights, rushing wind, a corpse appearing out of thin air, and a pill tens of thousands of years old… none of it can be true.

Can it?

00:28:43

After an explosive murder case gone wrong, Detective Juno Steel is in the market for some slower work. His next client promises something quiet: a routine find-the-cheating-husband job. Well… it should be routine. But if your missing man heads one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies on Mars, his biggest secret always runs much deeper than an affair. Before he knows it Juno Steel is in a race against the clock and a mysterious stranger to find that secret first – or this runaway husband might not return home in one piece.

1.02: Juno Steel and the Case of the Murderous Mask (Part 2)
00:50:18

In the hunt for a crime boss's murderer, Detective Juno Steel and Agent Rex Glass have ended up somewhere very peculiar: a game show.

Well, it should be peculiar. But in the house of the Kanagawas, Hyperion City's premier crime-family-slash-entertainment-network, nothing is peculiar so long as it's caught on camera. In the eyes of a camera you can sell anything: a mad genius's horrific game show; an ancient death mask that kills whoever disturbs it; and even, strangest of all, a Detective and Special Agent who really think they have a shot at surviving this mess.

1.01: Juno Steel and the Case of the Murderous Mask (Part 1)
00:40:46

(Note: this episode is a rewrite, recasting, and remaster of the original "Juno Steel and the Case of the Murderous Mask (Part 1)," and is our recommended jumping-on point for the series. If you're curious about changes made, the original version of "Murderous Mask" can be found on our website at thepenumbrapodcast.com.)

Juno Steel has had a lot of clients in his time, high-profile and low. But when he’s called in to investigate the murder of Croesus Kanagawa, head of the Kanagawa crime-family-slash-entertainment-network, it’s not the client that interests him. It’s what Croesus was wearing when he died – and an ancient curse that hangs over that very strange mask.
