Brace yourself for this podcast premise: "Ten years ago, over three hundred men, women and children disappeared from a small town in Tennessee, never to be heard from again." In the minutes it took for us to realise we were listening to a simulacrum of long-form radio journalism, and not the real thing, we were already firmly hooked. Our host is Lia Haddock, a radio producer with a personal interest in the Limetown case. She's determined to get to the bottom of the mystery - not just the mass disappearance, but what exactly the townspeople were up to before it all went wrong. Turns out, Limetown was in the middle of nowhere, purpose-built by a tight-lipped billionaire, and its residents were mainly researchers, at work on a project of which the only publicly stated aim was to better understand the human brain. Lia starts digging, speaking to victims' family members, law enforcement and journalists, piecing together the evidence that will, hopefully, lead her to the truth.
Season 1 comprises six half-hour episodes and is concluded.
