Anti-Heroine, Season 1

Anti-Heroine, Season 1

Anti-Heroine is an audio anthology/podcast series that offers a fresh take on the anti-hero archetype. This eclectic mix of short comedy, drama, horror, and hybrid-genre “audio movies” have one common feature: the lead characters are all women, each with a bold or unconventional approach to life. Sorry, not sorry - these ladies aren’t always “lady-like.” Anti-Heroine is dedicated to an exploration of female experiences and points of view – good, bad and ugly… amusing, dangerous and transcendent – and rarely seen in the media.

Winter Fall is a satirical comedy/drama short story, written in response to a movie about elderly "charming rascals" that had a distinctly misogynistic tone... and inspired Laurie to tell the story from one of the wive's point of view.

The Anti-Heroine is often just trying to save herself or those she cares about from an unfair situation or system, rather than a traditional Heroine trying to save the world. This wife ...
