Limetown is a fictional story told as a series of investigative reports by Lia Haddock (played by Annie-Sage Whitehurst), a journalist for American Public Radio (APR), detailing the disappearance of over 300 people at a neuroscience research facility in Tennessee.

It had me at Tennessee. 

As a Tennessean, I'm naturally drawn to any story set here. The more fucked-up, the better. I'd like to pretend that these strange but interesting things are happening in my town (which is as exciting as white bread btw) and I'm actually in the midst of something exciting!  

LIMETOWN, to me, is like a mash-up of Roanoke with all these people disappearing mysteriously, and that old sci-fi show, Eureka, except that it's not funny. For a podcast that only has 6 episodes running at half-hour more or less, the serial packed quite the mysterious punch! 

LIMETOWN starts in medias res. Chaos, panic, 911 calls, emergency responders, then in less than 24 hours, the entire town just vanishes. Enter Lia Haddock, an investigative journalist who has a personal investment with the story. Lia's beloved uncle was part of Limetown and naturally, she needs closure and the specifics surrounding his disappearance and what kind of science project was going on at the exclusive and cloistered town.

LIMETOWN has a spectacular first season which ended in a white-knuckling cliffhanger. In so few episodes, the series managed to tease and entrance me. It's loaded with heavy hitting revelations portending to high-level conspiracies and sinister villains. The voice actors are fantastic too not to mention the musical scoring and sound effects! Suffice to say that you'll slip into the story quickly and suspend disbelief in a snap of a finger.

  1. I love familiar locations too and the more fucked up, the better. LOL

  2. It sounds really good Braine, I also have a series based in my hometown. The Anita Blake series by Laurel K Hamilton is set in St. Louis. Thanks for sharing. I hope your not too close to that horrific fire.

  3. This does sound good and it's new to me so thanks for the breakdown and introduction, I'll have to check it out.

  4. I've yet to try a podcast type of story. I love the sounds of it. I really need to check this out. Great review.

  5. Overall this one sounds like a good listen! :D

  6. Oh this sounds so good Braine...I got shivers!

  7. Sounds like something I'd really enjoy! I like that each episode isn't very long either.


  8. Glad to see that you liked this. Sometimes we find things we aren't expecting to like. I hope you love the next season of episodes.

  9. man I wish I had more time to listen to something like this :( but I don't do well listening to stuff while working around the house, always lose my train of thought

  10. I haven't heard of this, but sounds like they did a good job with cliffie making you want to see more

  11. Isn't it funny how we like our "entertainment" set in our backyard? I love to read books set in Colorado, particularly places I've been too, or even Texas, because it allows me to sink that much deeper into the story since it's familiar. I'm happy you're enjoying Limetown, Braine! It sounds like a good watch. :)

  12. I'd not heard of this. Sounds like a good time :D I like North Carolina reads so I get ya on that. lol

  13. You are going to convince me to try a Podcast. I am catching up on my reading list this month and then I will be way more open in the New Year, and I know I will need something to listen to when I get back into my exercise routine. Hope you are doing well.

  14. That's kind of a little freaky... People disappearing because of science experiments! Glad you enjoyed it though!

  15. This sounds like so much fun especially since it's told through audio. Thanks for sharing Braine, the podcast sounds like it could be addictive!
