The future is a cold place when you have no past. Marketing exec Erica Crawford lost hers when a coma robbed her of all memory of the last ten years, and not even the FBI knows what she’s been up to. Now she wanders the streets of 2025 Chicago, trying to get by on a meager allowance of government assistance credits, without friends, funds, or a work history within the last decade. Increased automation and a depressed economy have put a lot of people in her situation – but how many of the urban poor are stalked by assassins sent by a past they can’t remember? How many of them have to rely on strange skills and muscle memory to survive? Between the drone filled skies up above, and the rumbling of the El trains down below, Erica’s only hope is to adapt to the streets of a world where technoshock can be as deadly as a hit-man’s pistol. Show Notes Episode 1 Cold Reboot was adapted from the novel by Michael Coorlim. Produced by Kat O'Connor and Michael Coorlim. Associate Producer is Bill Bullock.

The future is a cold place when you have no past. Marketing exec Erica Crawford lost hers when a coma robbed her of all memory of the last ten years, and not even the FBI knows what she’s been up to. Now she wanders the streets of 2025 Chicago, trying to get by on a meager allowance of government assistance credits, without friends, funds, or a work history within the last decade. Increased automation and a depressed economy have put a lot of people in her situation – but how many of the urban poor are stalked by assassins sent by a past they can’t remember? How many of them have to rely on strange skills and muscle memory to survive? Between the drone filled skies up above, and the rumbling of the El trains down below, Erica’s only hope is to adapt to the streets of a world where technoshock can be as deadly as a hit-man’s pistol. Show Notes Episode 1 Cold Reboot was adapted from the novel by Michael Coorlim. Produced by Kat O'Connor and Michael Coorlim. Associate Producer is Bill Bullock. Our cast, in order of appearance: Scott Morris, played by Bill Bullock Erica Crawford, played by Kat O’Connor Taxi AI, played by Bill Bullock ChicagoNet AI, played be Ruth Kaufman Harry, played by Peyton Brown Judith, played by Susan Victoria Thomas Georgia Matthews, played by Chanda Davetas Baxter Collins, played by Sean Daniel Francis Synesthesia Theatre theme music by Stav Drieman.
