With over 100K downloads to date, the audio drama BROKEN ROAD is delighting sci-fi fans with its compelling story, great acting, and dystopian near-future western vibe. As the audio drama wraps up its season (episode 10 drops today!), we’re showing a little love to this show and the work that went into the making of it.
First, the final episode of the season has dropped. So it’s a great time to listen to the whole season arc and share the show with your friends.
For new fans who may not be familiar with the show, BROKEN ROAD tells the story of protagonist Emmett Lee, a veteran with failing, government-issued, cybernetic implants who is struggling to survive in a rural dystopia. Featuring Manu Bennett, Peter Shinkoda, Lana McKissack, Indiana Massara, Ian Paget, Taylor Murphy, and others, the talented cast and crew, led by executive producer/writer Jacob Pinion (Fear the Walking Dead), bring the exciting story to life.
Second, there’s a lot of cool stuff to see on the BROKEN ROAD social channels right now (you’ll find the show as @brokenroadpod on Instagram, Twitter and TikTok). Creating the show has been the culmination of many moving parts, including recording a predominantly remote cast! Here’s a few behind-the-scenes photos of a few of our incredible actors in the booth. It’s always such a pleasure working with them
Finally, catch a chat about the making of the show over on the popular EYE ON SCI-FI podcast, hosted by Rod Faulkner of the sci-fi, fantasy and horror website, The 7th Matrix. (Rod is a great writer, whose film reviews have appeared on Recursor.TV.) Listen to the interview here. Or here.
