THANK YOU!
You're here!

That means someone likely recommend you come check us out! And you did!
That's awesome! You're awesome!

"I'm confused, what is audiodrama?"

It's like HBO for your ears.

What is Dream State about?

On May 1st, 2021, a breach between conscious reality and the dream state is opened inside Rosemary Kennedy’s limousine, and the President’s daughter is taken.

All evidence points to CONCH, a clandestine government organization utilizing the uninhibited minds of psychopaths to develop dream-manipulation technology.

With suspicion on the government itself, Federal Internal Affairs Officers Nat DeVoure and Luke Marmaroth spearhead the investigation.

But when one of CONCH’s own agents is murdered, the ancient cult known as the Order of the Dreaming Awake is suspected, stirring at childhood trauma Luke has worked hard to bury.

In hopes of recovering his past, Luke goes off his medication, making him increasingly unstable.

Months later, with the enigmatic cult still at large and Luke losing touch with reality, both he and Nat are officially taken off the case and CONCH’s agents are all subpoenad for questioning.

Meanwhile, from the dark web, notorious hacker Gal Vixen takes advantage of the country’s unrest in order to liberate CONCH’s dream technology for the people.

But something abominable is hidden in the CONCH facility basement.

What would you sacrifice to make your dreams real?

She also starred in the Simone Biles Lifetime gymnastics biopic, Courage To Soar.

7 of 19 patrons
When we reach 19 Patrons, we have a number of ways we'd like to celebrate and y'all will get to vote on which of the following we focus our attentions on:
  • Launch the independent news site, THE CATCH, to report on the world of Dream State, including politics, crime, local current events, medicine, technology, etc.
  • Begin releasing sister-podcast DEAR HYDIE, the audio diary of Fed IA Officer Luke Marmaroth beginning the day his daughter Hydie was born. These episodes will be shorter, simpler, and in a completely different format than what you're used to from Dream State.
  • Open THE LAUNCH TUNNEL, a full-blown Dream State Merch site, which includes exclusive designs, graphics, prints, apparel, posters, and reproduced memorabilia taken directly from the show.
  • Offer an exciting new Patreon Tier, CONCH EAST COAST DIVISION. This level will be special. REALLY special. You get to create your own CONCH Agent from the ground up, with their own unique brand of psychopathy, drives, and flaws. We will have some legit D&D sessions (via Skype if need be), during which you will be guided through the Oneiric Plane where you will explore, go on missions, and even interact with some of your favorite characters.
