Hello, Everyone! I want to tell you about my involvement in the audio drama, Closing the Distance produced by The Audio Drama Initiative. A podcast series released by Apple consists of ten short stories about regular people dealing with the coronavirus pandemic performed by some amazing actors. The first episodes were released today and others will follow on Tuesday’s for the next several weeks. I’ve written six of the episodes! Here’s a list of them along with the performers.
