The Penumbra Podcast
You Deserve To See Yourself In Stories.
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.
