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.

This week in Greater Boston, Dimitri exits the submarine in “The Wrong Ocean," Michael calls Nica with a special invitation, in “Gemini Nature" and Extinction Event orchestrates a lunchtime social in “The Seance.” All that in Episode 8: Message in a Bottle.
