Thomas Tells a Story is a minimalist, long-form storytelling podcast.
There is no music, and there are no sound effects. Instead, the show invites you to engage more fully in the 'shared hallucination' of the words.
Season 1 tells the story of Elandra Ramirez, a young First Arcanist of the United Star Systems Alliance. Sent across the galaxy to learn the truth about a household android that has purportedly begun practicing magic, she soon finds herself ensnared in a cultural and political upheaval that stretches to the furthest reaches of colonized space.
"There's a state of mind that you enter when you're listening to a story; it's a state of passive acceptance, where you sit there and you get to make your own exciting movie. You get to watch it be built for you in front of you."
This story is called The Elandrid.
