It stars Samir, an aimless twentysomething who finds himself stuck in a thunderstorm with his best friend while camping in Wound Canyon. When a brilliant, ghostly specter flies through the sky amid the rain and lightning, an entranced Samir stumbles off a steep cliff, falling into the canyon below. What awaits him there is a hidden world: one in which demons, vampires, and all other manner of paranormal creatures take sanctuary.
First rule of the canyon: no one who gets in ever gets out. Soon, Samir finds himself caught up in a “caravan” — a band of supernatural bounty hunters and vigilante peace-keepers. Together with an ever-expanding train of fantastical tagalongs, Samir and his new friends venture deep into the bowels of the canyon to find a way out of the magical boundary that imprisons all who cross it. At once genre-defiant and genre-reverent—familiar in its tropes and startling in its subversion of them—CARAVAN takes listeners on a raucous, raunchy, pop culture reference-laden jaunt through a fresh fantasy western for the 21st century. Evangelists would best describe it as a show equal parts grave, comedic, and downright soapy in the tradition of TRUE BLOOD and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER.
As a 21st century podcast, CARAVAN strives for radical inclusion, featuring multiple central queer characters of color with varying identities along racial, gender, sexual, and disability identity spectra. CARAVAN is written by a marginalized writer, produced by a marginalized team, featuring and starring marginalized people, for marginalized audiences—first and foremost. And yet, everyone can stand to benefit from radically diverse stories.
Please note: CARAVAN is created for adult audiences only. Listener and reader discretion are advised, as the podcast contains depiction of both visceral and fantasy violence; frank discussion and portrayal of sexuality; detailed exploration of mental illness; painful existential struggle; and downright filthy language.
