Episode By Pippa Mackie:
Starman

Taking inspiration from the galactic event of blackholes swallowing stars, Starman is a dark comedy about a 42-year-old man who has locked himself in his room for the rest of his life. Through his very unpopular podcast - Daryl (aka Starman) will take his internet “friends” on a journey into his chosen exile which may lead him to confront a part of himself he never knew existed.

The Eternal Sailor

Waking up from a concussion coma suffered during a 2020 pro-democracy protest crackdown in Hong Kong, our protagonist goes on an Odyssey to track down their beloved partner in Hong Kong and Vancouver. Using audio ship log/field recording as the framing device, the listener sets off on a marine epic between various Vancouver and Hong Kong neighborhoods across 2019 and 2047.

Episode By Gary Mok  
Lost Soul Animal Rescue

This episode is for young audiences and is centred around the tradition of Chinese ghost stories which normally focus on filial piety (duty to your ancestors). In this particular creation, Gary has added a twist on that concept by using animal “ghosts” to question our duty to nature instead. 

Alarm:  environmental and wildlife conservation
