It's an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew.Watchtower 10's necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who's only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies. Unbeknownst to the general public (but totally knownst to each watchtower's crew), these stations also hold a secret that could potentially destroy the world...or save it.The Bridge is a fictional serialized fantasy podcast about the monsters we fear, the monsters we can become, and the stories we leave behind.

Fun, but sound quality issues

By H.A.Jah - Oct 31 2019
Read more
Original, engaging story that started out a bit rough, got better, but still needs work in the sound/audio editing arena. At one point they acknowledged they recorded separately - completely unsurprising, as it was very clear from the uneven sound (echoes, timing, muffling, etc.). This improves, and it seems they started recording together more, but the sound quality is still mediocre and horribly distracting. It might be less of an issue if it weren’t for the piano music (I get it - you’re passionate about your friend’s work. Cool.). Unfortunately it’s just too loud. It detracts from the narrative, playing over the voices at times. This occurs throughout the full series, not just the rough start. I wouldn’t otherwise mind the music, but again - this is about sound quality and editing - it’s just too uneven and distracting to the overall story. Hope that gets worked out before you return with more episodes...

Hello hello!

Team Bridge wanted to let you know that we are indeed still here, and that Episode 11 will hopefully exist...sometime in August. Life is a little hectic at the moment, but we're hard at work on getting the rest of season one out to all of you.

Once we release Episode 11, we plan on taking another break, as we need a little extra time to work on some very special episodes.

In the meantime, be on the lookout for an announcement about our merch shop opening, as well as (hopefully) our Patreon!

If you're interested in A) a glimpse into Episode 10's cliffhanger's resolution or B) a slight spoiler for Episode 11, jump to the end of the recording.

Thanks for being so awesome!
