The Penumbra

Homepage

Description

The Penumbra (also referred to as The Penumbra Podcast) is an audio drama podcast with a focus on underrepresented character-types. It presents a mixture of anthology stories from a variety of genres, along with a serialized science fiction series about Juno Steel, a private eye from Hyperion City, Mars.

Depending on who you ask, the Penumbra is either the grandest hotel this side of Nowhere or a twice-monthly podcast series. Each episode takes the form of a 30-50 minute radio play.

The Penumbra is all about stories you recognize told in ways you won't expect. Your femme fatale might be an homme fatale; your swashbucklers might be specters. Your Detective might 'manize as much as he womanizes, and your home might have just a little more heart than you're comfortable with. It's never just a heist, a Western, an adventure. It's the parts we think are still fresh about those genres — mixed in with a little bit of our secret sauce.

And what's in that sauce, you ask? Well… see for yourself.

We've always loved stories, whether they be science fiction, swashbucklers, high fantasy, horror, or mystery. We grew up passionately reading, watching movies and TV, and playing video games. But eventually we started to notice that a lot of the stories we consumed were the same ones over and over again, and we got tired of it.

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?

And one day, we realized that we couldn't wait any more for the stories we wanted. So we decided to write them ourselves. Maybe you've been waiting for them, too. If you have, we hope you'll join us at The Penumbra to listen.
