Now for something different in the creepy audio fiction space. Young archivist Daniel Powell has been hired to catalogue tapes for the Housing Historical Committee of New York State. It's his first real job, but even he can see there's something fishy about it: he's being housed at a remote facility, and is under strict instruction not just to listen to every minute of the recordings, but to record himself listening to the tapes. So we hear it all: Daniel's experience, and the originals. The archival tapes, recorded in the 1990s, comprise the work of a woman who was hired to interview the residents of a high-rise apartment block - a special kind of housing project - and it soon becomes clear that strange forces are at work in the building. Then there's the next layer of narrative: everything we're hearing is actually found footage, being broadcast by Daniel's friend (and show producer) Marc Sollinger: in the present day, three months on from his archiving job, Daniel is missing. It's a rich storytelling experience, original in construct, and the production is of a very high quality. Get new episodes bi-weekly.
