“What came before us?”
By asking this simple question, Dr. Lo Swell has become a household name across Perma. People gather every week at their local listening center to hear his voice introduce a new story reading from the Wreesome Island Survivals, the ancient archive discovered on the desolate island of Emptee Sla.
“The Wreesome Island Survivals” is an audio fiction podcast and radio show that explores a possible landscape following the demise of our own. The show speaks to listeners as though they are members of this future world, Perma.
The hosts, Drs. Lo Swell and Nuya Werto, introduce readings from the ancient archive of stories, known as the Wreesome Island Survivals, that they discovered on the desolate island of Emptee Sla. It was on that island that the Wreesome culture once thrived. Each cycle of episodes presents a narrative with a unique story and new characters. The audience learns alongside the hosts about what life was really like during the 900-year-old period that Dr. Swell and his contemporaries call Imperma.
