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.

May 10, 2016

This week in Greater Boston, Gemma takes Michael on a tour of the office in "ThirdSight Media and Environs." The Mayor of the Redline reveals his secret origin story in "Subterranean Mobile Communities." And Dimitri writes home about his sub-aquatic adventures in "Karaoke in International Waters."
