Join us on Tuesday November 2nd at 7:00 PM eastern time for the audio-drama presentation of “The Unplugging” by Yvette Nolan. Post show, there will be a discussion with Alex Bulmer and sound designer Amanda Trapp about explorations in audio.
In a post-apocalyptic world, Bern and Elena are exiled from their village. Their crime? The two women are no longer of child-bearing age. Forced to rely upon traditional wisdom for their survival, Elena and Bern retreat from the remains of civilization to a freezing, desolate landscape where they attempt to continue their lives after the end of the world. When a charismatic stranger from the village arrives seeking their aid, the women must decide whether they will use their knowledge of the past to give the society that rejected them a chance at a future.
Coffee Connections returns weekly every Thursday from 12:00pm to 1:00pm eastern time!
