Transcript for Episode 25: But Perhaps there is a Key

THE BIG LOOP promo – Alexander Danner

Hi, Alexander here to tell you about a fiction podcast that Jeff and I have been really enjoying lately. Now, Jeff and I both love a good dramatic monologue–and if you’ve made it this far into Greater Boston, I’m going to assume you do too. So you need to give a listen to The Big Loop by writer Paul Bae and engineer Steve Jin. You might already know Paul’s work from The Black Tapes, but trust us, The Big Loop is a whole other experience. From the tribulations of a professional grief surrogate to an unlucky assassin frustrated by the one that got away, these stories are deep character portraits of humans in crisis, all told with a captivating confessional intimacy. Season 2 has just started, but you can jump in anywhere—every episode is self contained. That’s The Big Loop—stories of finite beings in an infinite universe.
