Welcome to Tribulation.


On a deserted stretch of highway, Greg and Stacy Carlson stumble on a faint radio broadcast at the end of the AM dial. What sounds like your average radio sermon reveals itself to be something far more sinister: a hidden cult that will claim Greg as one of its own and send Stacy on a quest for the truth.

In our first 10-episode season, Stacy’s odyssey introduced her to an ex-rock star turned conspiracy theory podcaster and a therapist with a hidden agenda of her own, all while being forced to confront long-forgotten demons from her own past. But this is only the beginning. The Second Book of Tribulation will heighten the mystery, further the paranoia, and take listeners even deeper into the dark, strange world of Brother Chess and Magus.

Why Patreon?


Tribulation is the first original fiction podcast from Atlanta-based Zero Mile Media, a team of seasoned writers, journalists and producers dedicated to the art of storytelling through sound. Since we launched on May 31, 2017, Tribulation has been downloaded over 35,000 times and maintained an average five-star rating from listeners on such platforms as Apple Podcasts and Facebook. It has been a true word-of-mouth sensation, continuing to attract new fans every week.

We have exciting plans for Tribulation: Book Two (and beyond). Every dollar raised will go directly into the production, helping pay for studio time and our incredibly talented cast and crew. In return, you’ll get exclusive early access to new episodes, cool merch to make you the envy of all your friends, our eternal gratitude and the knowledge that you’ve helped tell a story that’s creeping out thousands of people around the world.

Please take a listen to the story so far. Tribulation can be found on Apple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle Play MusicStitcherPodbean and Radio Public, just to name a few, or on our own official website, This Hollow Earth. If you like what you hear and can afford it, please consider becoming a patron. On behalf of us all, Magus thanks you.

Praise be.

Turns out that the most effective way to distribute a podcast is on the internet. Who knew? So our modest first goal is simply to cover the costs associated with hosting the show and our website.
