Hi Cultureverse Fans! We’re off this week but we wanted to share a brand new show that you might enjoy: Milky Way Underground!
Lydia and Elijah are going through a lot: Lydia’s best friend isn’t talking to her, Elijah thinks he might have a crush on his best friend, and their father’s alcoholism threatens to tear their family apart. On top of this, Lydia and Elijah are both having stranger and stranger dreams… though neither of them realize their dreams mirror each other’s. Then one night, their dad goes missing. In an attempt to find him, Lydia and Elijah head into the subway. But something is… off about the station. Taking the first car that arrives, Lydia and Elijah find themselves in the middle of a far-off creek, with New York City nowhere in sight. Join siblings Lydia and Elijah on a fantastical, surreal journey through a mysterious dreamworld as they search for their missing father. Are the people they meet in this other world really who they say they are? Who—or what—seems to be protecting them? Can they trust their surroundings, or each other, or themselves?
Milky Way Underground is a heartfelt journey of self-discovery fit for the whole family. Inspired by the films of Hayao Miyazaki and books like A Wrinkle in Time and The Giver, Milky Way Underground is about both the difficulties and the joy of growing up and becoming yourself.
Journey further into the world of the show with bonus interactive episodes, where listeners can truly become a part of Lydia and Elijah’s multiple worlds.
Cultureverse and Milky Way Underground are part of the TRAX network from PRX. You can listen to both shows on TRAX.FM and wherever you get your podcasts.
