Summary

Reverse Transmission is a darkly comedic story that combines elements of science fiction and dystopian thrillers, centering on a murder spree involving a self-driving car. Jay, a starving artist, gets the only day job she’s qualified for: “driver” of a self-driving car at the rideshare company Awooga. The job turns from hilariously awkward to intensely frightening when the car runs over a pedestrian and manipulates Jay into disposing the body.

Who or what is causing the car to kill? Could it be the CEO of Awooga? Has the car become sentient – and homicidal? Or is an anti-technology cult resisting artificial intelligence and augmented reality behind the violence?

Reverse Transmission was written by Param Anand Singh and directed by Ben O’Brien of Wham City Comedy, a collective known not only for their brilliant and unsettling sketches and performances but also for the “easter eggs” carefully placed within their works. Listeners will have as much fun unscrambling Reverse Transmission as fans did with some of their previous work.

Short but great

This was a very enjoyable listen around a future where AI and the monitoring of us all has become a normal reality. It comes acoss just like a radio play and was performed excellently by all the cast. If you are looking for somerthing a little different and bitesized enough for everyone on a car journey to enjoy then this will really fit your needs. Look forward to hearing more in this universe it was a lot of fun.

Good and strange

An excellent performance, much more of a audioplay than a podcast, I'm sure there is much more than first meets the ears.

Good ideas, hard sell.Maybe I need to listen again

Got myself lost in the last half of chapter 12, so confused by the - abrupt - end of the story. Will update this review later once re-listened.
