Greater Boston is a bi-monthly full-cast audio drama set in the Boston metro area, blending the real and the unreal, the historical and the fantastical. It all begins with the death of Leon Stamatis, a man so enamored of predictability that the least hint of uncertainty makes life unbearable. But by leaving the world, he has irrevocably changed it.

The show is written and produced by Alexander Danner and Jeff Van Dreason.

Do you dig our show? Great! Please consider leaving us a review on Apple Podcasts, or one of the other podcast apps. Or write it in the sand. Right it in a paper airplane and shoot it at the moon. Write it down on paper, stuff it in a bottle and throw it in the ocean. Is that considered pollution? If it is, don’t do that. Unless it’s a really great review.
