Recommendation: Mercury: A Broadcast of Hope

Mercury: A Broadcast of Hope

I've had a major case of writer's block over the last few weeks as well as life making me want to hermit myself away. I really wanted to share some new recommendations, but every time I tried to select a podcast to recommend, I got so overwhelmed that I just shut down. So I decided to look through my drafts that include my past recommendations that I have been meaning to repost. I came across a recommendation with the title "A Broadcast of Hope." I smiled to myself and decided to rewrite this recommendation because I think we could all use some hope and because I realized that I have a lot of episodes I can marathon.

Mercury: A Broadcast of Hope is a daily audio fiction that takes place in a campus radio station run by Agnes Drew, Max O'Brien, and Dr. Rosalind Clark during a zombie apocalypse. They take turns telling stories, giving useful advice, giving warnings, but they also end each broadcast telling listeners to “Take care of each other.” In horrible situations, it is easy to just give up and simply stop caring. We should never become so jaded that we will stop helping each other. I know that everything seems to be going wrong and that many of us are just tired of only surviving, but don't lose hope, and don't be afraid to ask for help.

This is a daily podcast and the new episodes expire after 24 hours, but they have left the first 9 episodes up so that new listeners can jump in without being completely lost. Be sure to set your podcast app to automatically download the episodes so you can listen when you want. If you want to listen to the expired episodes, you can gain access by supporting them on Patreon.
