Audio Drama

The Way We Haunt Now

Written, directed, and produced by Courtney (with cowriting in season 2-3 by Georgia Mckenzie and sound design by Brad Colbroock), The Way We Haunt Now is a lighthearted horror audio drama about friendship, found family, and fighting the narratives that try to define us––even in the afterlife. Oh, and ghosts. Did I mention ghosts?
