Listen up sci-fi fans, a new 10-episode scripted podcast from the iHeartPodcast Network premieres today, and you’re going to want to check it out.
It’s called “Second Oil Age” — this scripted podcast is set in a post-energy-crisis world where humanity has struck a bargain with a mysterious deep-sea species to satisfy their thirst for oil. The story follows Synøve Pan, voiced by Angèle Masters, a specially-conditioned agent of the UDEX Oil Corporation as she investigates the disappearance of an oil executive on the deep-sea Atlas Station. Her investigation propels her and listeners into a vortex of action, intrigue and horror.
Written and created by “Stuff to Blow Your Mind” and “Invention” host Robert Lamb, “Second Oil Age” alludes to classic deep-sea sci-fi films, such as The Abyss and Leviathan, while addressing contemporary technological and environmental anxieties. An epic tale of adventure with just a touch of horror fiction, the world of “Second Oil Age” is made all the more real by an immersive sonic experience that’s sure to get your blood pumping.
Check out the first three episodes now with new episodes debuting every Tuesday and Thursday — just in time for Halloween.
