About

The Far Meridian is an audio fiction podcast created & written by Eli Barraza. It details the adventures of Peri, an agoraphobic young woman who discovers that her converted-lighthouse home isn't always in the same place she left it the day before. Join her on a journey of discovery, healing, and exploring perspective as she uses her unique situation to search for her missing brother.

The show is a labor of love for the creators, cast and crew. This story has been cooking for a long time, and the only way it's turned from handwritten monologues and brief sketches into a fully-formed work of art is through the tireless devotion of artists who want desperately to get this story to you, the listening audience. That means finding time to write and re-write scripts, record dialogue with the cast, edit that dialogue together, and mix in sound effects. That means money spent acquiring recording equipment, hosting the podcast on Squarespace, and accessing sound libraries. That means a lot of working artists working for free to express a story they feel so passionately needs to be told.

We need your help. We want to give you an exceptional show, but we can't get there for free. With your help not only will you insure that the story of The Far Meridian continues to get made, but you'll also be investing in its future. This show is free, and will remain free, but anything you can do to help us, either by donating to the show's continued future or simply by spreading the word, would help immensely. Thanks for listening!
