Strap on your Dream-Streamer headset, hell-hacker. You're entering part 1 of a two-part season finale that will launch the show in a new direction — a serial story arc for Season 02, about which we are very excited. Join father and son Thornton and Kirby Bevins for a walk in the park. It ain't a walk in the park, if you know what I mean. Thornton reveals a shocking secret about Kirby's past. Kirby doesn't believe it...

Love is a noun, a nickname, a type of shack, a god, an emotion, a verb, and a score of zero in cyber-tennis (how’d they arrive at that one?).

All things are not what they seem. I, Kirby, look slightly fatter than last week. Yet, my bloat is just a bellyful of apologies for the delay of this episode. As you'll see with your ears, we got our boat rocked in the making of it.

What's in this episode? Hypothetically, your partn...

It’s the third month of the year, so you know what that means. The Governing Authority Group’s (GAG) annual Cyber-Purge is upon us. Watch your partners and your pets. I know I did. If you’ve seen a dusky blue teacup poodle, caged or otherwise, please alert the station.

It’s been a tough year all-around and to think, we kicked off the Kraken-virus plague during last year’s Cyber-Purge without even knowing it.

Many a cyborg fell to...

Dream a little dream with me, Kirby Bevins. Join us as we go hip deep into my psyche and, girl, it gets messy. Total radio apeshot. If you thought you knew ol’ Kirb up until now, think again. One Cyber Lucidity plunge and you’ll be swimming in a sea of intrigue, dark figures, and dangerous encounters.

That’s all before we tune in to the return of cyber-fan favorite, Dendricks' Corner, brought to you by Meg’s List. You heard me...

Strap on your psycho helmet. It's going to be a bumpy ride. A new audio production team has formed to take Amsterdenizens to a higher plane – no, not Ascension.

Host Kirby Bevins walks listeners through the slushy sludge of Manahatta Isle and into the depths of cult role-playing game sensation XYnon, a crime against the Church of Natas by two pyromaniacs (could it be the Pyro Bros?), and more.

Stay inquisitive. Stay vigilant...

Dear hell-hackers: I, Kirby Bevins, apologize for the delay of "Hot Metal Dobermans". I also blame Mayor Boccaccio's Blackguard Cyber-Squad. They intercepted Episode 04 through a sidewall. Do not be alarmed! We circumvented the fire-block. Hang tight and stay vigilant. Be ready for the new microchipped vaccine – it packs a secret punch. Speaking of secrets, guess our guest today and you could win tickets to see the Vapo...

Kirby revisits President Gorp’s alleged cyber-coup last week. Who helped it? How? What happened? Why? It came to a head, actually about 15 heads. They rolled off several Centurian Cenators and a slew of Representatives unlucky enough to be caught in the melee. Host Bevins remains undaunted even as the F.I.B. and pint-sized hate machines pursue him for crimes he swears he never even computed.

Rumors of Alby, the man-eating albino a...

Kirby Bevins finds himself on the lam, or lamb? Either way, he's now hiding out in a dingy capsule, trying to keep it together. He will not be cowed by the goon squad. Where to run?

Season's Greetings, Neo Amsterdenizens and demons alike! Kirby Bevins here, your friendly neighborhood host. This trailer gives you the briefest tour of the Hell Gate City Companion podcast. The recipe? Take one part dark humor, fold in one part dystopian cyberpunk fantasy, and whisk gently with one part absurdist satire until frothy — best eaten off the spatula. If hooked don't forget to oil your weathervane, stretch your ...

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
