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, Gemma receives an anniversary gift from ThirdSight Media and immediately begins plotting its destruction in "The Crystal Ball;" Leon applies for a job from beyond the grave in "Will and Determination;" and Michael is not quite as down on his luck as he thinks in "Guy Without Truck."
