Episode 57 - Albion
Kind of Lord of the Rings, except with an awesome gay sorceress on the planet of Albion.I’ve wondered for a while with the creation of the Ostium spin-off Circe on the distant planet of Albion, if Jake or Monica might one day end up there somehow. This is the story that came out of that, as I wondered what Pragma might be up to now that Thyra is gone. I think there may be more visits from one or more of our main characters to Albion in the future. You’ll just have to wait and see.This episode was written by Alex C. Telander.The part of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie.The part of Pragma is performed by Belinda Roddie. Sound design was done by Hail and Well Met Podcasts.

Episode 53 - Starless
A post-apocalyptic audio drama, in which rampant fires have destroyed not only lives and the earth, but what little civilization was left. Rhana is on a mission to restore humanity to the world.While only a few episodes of Starless were ever released, due to the creator being unable to continue to with the show, what was released was compelling and engrossing. When we arranged to do a crossover episode, I was excited about writing it, considering for the last three years I have dealt with devastating fires in some shape or form, living in Northern California. It was a future I could comprehend, and an empathy I could identify with. While the main feed for Starless is no longer available, listeners are able to access it on archive.org. A link is in the show notes.This episode was written by Alex C. Telander.The part of Jake is performed by Chris Fletcher.The part of Rhana is performed by Justy Gee.Sound design was done by Hail and Well Met Podcasts.

Join our narrator as they discover where they are, when they are, and the mystery surrounding how they got there.On July 15th, 2018, Dwayne sent me his fanfic for Door 129. I’d invited Ostium fans to submit they’re own Ostium door stories and Dwayne got in touch with an Ostium door idea he had about Centralia, which he wrote and recorded, and we put it together and released it. And then people started asking Dwayne what happened next after his Ostium door story? And thus Manifestations was born. Dwayne originally said he wasn’t a writer, and now has his very own audiodrama that’s really good and I’m looking forward to season two. So be sure to check out season one of Manifestations, which you can marathon right now.This episode was written and directed by Dwayne Farver.The part of Alan is performed by Dwayne Farver.The part of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie.The part of QILA is performed by Penelope Dyer.The theme music is Breathe by Chill Carrier.Sound design was done by Hail and Well Met Podcasts.
