The Scavenger's Daughter 

"All men are born equal. Some men are born poor. Some men are born kings. Some men are born women. And some men are born enemies. All men being equal; don’t be a fuck up."

20 years after The Philosopher’s Wife we re-enter The Empire in this fast paced, darkly comedic thriller following Jack, Ash, and Sarah trying to survive a war that’s been raging for a generation. Jack’s only weeks away from civilian life, his freedom from the army having been bought for him by a mysterious man who taught him to read and write. But when rations wear thin and the king seizes the opium trails, Jack and Ash must fight their way through the violence of withdrawal, scarcity, militarization, and each other. The Scavenger’s Daughter is rated R.

Podcast cast from left to right: Carlos Gonzalez-Vio (Webb), Mina James (Sarah), Christopher Stanton (Cook), Richard Lam (Ash), and Josh Johnston (Jack). Directed by ted witzel. Intro by Alison Wong.

Recorded by Chris Tolley and Laura Mullin. Edited by Gregory Sinclair.
