Podcast Rec: The Penumbra

No matter who you are, if you’re living in the USA (or in any of the many many countries that’s going to be heavily affected by the USA’s policies), this election cycle has been a long and very trying one, but it’s almost over.

Whether you did your voting early, you’re standing in line, or you can’t vote and are forced to watch from the sidelines, we’re all in for a lot of really stressful waiting until the votes are all in, tallied, and posted.

So here’s something to help lessen the stress.

If you’re a fan of the Urban Dragon series, you’re going to love The Penumbra Podcast. It’s gonna have all the same things you loved from the series:

  • Canonically, actively LGBT protagonists who are as angsty as they are awesome
  • Confident rogues who will charm the pants off you (and the head off your shoulders)
  • The darkest back alleys of a city so impressive it might as well be its own character
  • Strippers (because who doesn’t love strippers?)
  • Exciting genre stories that dabble in gore without getting torture-porn-y
  • And just plain wonderful characters and settings and writing.

In short, I had a lot of fun with it. And at the moment, dreams of queer noir in a far-future Mars is giving me hope that the world won’t end tonight.
