If The Message and Limetown had a baby, it would probably sound something like this. In what has become a familiar convention for audio fiction in 2015, Nic Silver plays Nic Silver, a curious radio producer who starts by casually probing a mystery, and ends up tumbling all the way down the rabbit hole. The mystery in question is the myth of Tanis, which is purported to have cropped up continually through history. Sometimes Tanis is a city; at other times it's a person, or the Garden of Eden, or the key to eternal life. Silver wants to pin down exactly what it means, but all he really has to go on is a breadcrumb in an old science fiction magazine - a strange story titled ‘Where is Tanis?’ Finding next to nothing online, he enlists the help of a delightfully sour and impatient hacker to go digging in the dark web, taking the story as her lead. We won’t reveal more, except that things get progressively spookier. It’s an evocative trip, bi-weekly, from the makers of the equally spooky The Black Tapes.
