“Palimpsest” podcast launches third season, Jan. 21

Press release from Jamieson Ridenhour:

Returning after a year-long hiatus, popular audio drama Palimpsest will move to the twentieth century in its third season, which is set in London during the Blitz of 1940-41.

Palimpsest is a (mostly) single-voiced audio drama about memory, identity, and the things that haunt us. Each ten-episode season is a unique and self-contained story, exploring the spaces between horror, fantasy, and psychological realism. Wil Williams (Polygon, The AV Club) calls Palimpsest “audio fiction’s best foray into the Gothic,” and AudioDramatic’s Elena Fernández-Collins says Palimpsest is “a masterclass in atmosphere.”

The show’s third season follows Josie, a disgraced American codebreaker living in London during the Blitz, who begins seeing and interacting with what appear to be the spirits of the London dead. But she quickly realizes the bombs may have released something much older and more ominous. Government conspiracies, Lovecraftian cults, and Lon Chaney’s The Wolf Man all figure in a folk horror tale more expansive than anything Palimpsest has done before.

Season three launches January 21st, 2020 and releases new episodes on alternate Tuesdays until May. As with the previous seasons, the show is written and produced by Jamieson Ridenhour and performed by Hayley Heninger. The soundtrack is composed and performed by Ian Ridenhour.
