I tried very hard to like this. Unfortunately the episode where the cat and the thirteen year old die has shown me that I do not like this.

Season 1 was great, and I'm excited to see where they go next

(18+) The story and voice acting are super silly, funky, and bizarre. It is made to feel like listening to an old radio drama. This podcast is from the people that brought you Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn't Dead.

Story has really captured me, but the stigmatizing stereotype of antisocial personality disorder is really bumming me out so I guess I'm gonna drop it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Description

Adventures in New America is the first sci-fi, political satire, Afrofuturistic buddy comedy, serialized for New Americans in a new and desperate time.

Set a few years in the future, Adventures in New America follows the escapades of two mismatched African-New-American best friends — fat, lonely, curmudgeon IA and lesbian sneak-thief Simon Carr — who take on a series of increasingly wild heists to get quick cash to pay for IA’s medical treatment while attempting to survive the wilds of New New York City — and a secret cabal of Tetchy Terrorist Vampire Zombies from outer space. Intrigued? Good! Frequently, there will be musical numbers... and radical reflections on our dangerous, beautiful, heart-pounding world.

Anthem: Homunculus
31:36

We hope you enjoy this sample episode of Anthem: Homunculus, a new fiction podcast from our friend John Cameron Mitchell and Bryan Weller. Anthem features 31 original songs delivered by 40 actors (with 7 Tony Awards®) and 30 musicians on one unconventional audio stage. (Glenn Close sings a punk song nailed to a cross, Patti Lupone is a junkie nun singing bebop, Cynthia Erivo is Joan the Baptist spreading the Gospel of the Virgin Mary.) Anthem teeters on the razor-funny knife-edge of life as the characters struggle to live after loss, love after hate, and survive in a world flirting with Apocalypse. Created by John Cameron Mitchell and Bryan Weller, Anthem: Homunculus is the first in the new anthology series from Luminary Media and Topic Studios. New episodes will publish each week only on Luminary Premium. Subscribe to keep listening.
