You Deserve To See Yourself In Stories.
The award-winning Penumbra Podcast is a bi-weekly audio drama, available to listen for free. Creators Sophie Takagi Kaner and Kevin Vibert have always loved stories, whether they be science fiction, swashbucklers, high fantasy, horror, or mystery. But eventually they started to notice that a lot of stories they consumed were the same ones over and over again. Why did every boy and girl who adventured together have to end up romantically involved? Why couldn’t a woman be tough and fierce without also being sexy? Why did every gay relationship end in tragedy? And where were all the people who didn’t fit into the gender binary? One day, Sophie and Kevin realized that they couldn’t wait any more for the stories they wanted. So they decided to write them, and share them with the world.
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.
