I apologize in advance. We all spend too much time looking at screens, and yet here you are looking at a screen again to read this. We need more human contact than we get, and yet here I am premiering a podcast episode that has only bots in it.
Well, not sorry, actually. Not entirely sorry. It was a challenge, in Episode 01 and 02, to work with bots and humans together in the same audio drama.
It’s time to premiere Episode 02 of Your Performance Review. In this episode, Molly is told to report to a performance reviewer because she is overwhelmed at work. She’s a mission expeditor, responsible for managing a hundred space flights a day. If she makes a mistake, people could die.
Listen to Episode 02
Molly knows she is being pushed by admin to run as many missions as she can, and she believes the reason for this is greed.
Great news for you all today. I am ready to premiere Your Performance Review, an audio drama in ten episodes. It takes place in 2036, so some time travel is required. But don’t worry, I’ll make that part easy for you.
Listen to Episode 01 Now
Your Performance Review tells a story within a story. On the surface level, people who are troubled at work come in to resolve a problem they’re having.
Forming genuine communities online is a challenge. These communities have to be healthy, have real people in the community, not bots, and they have to sustain themselves by recruiting new members.
But know what’s even harder? Starting out with a real-world community, then transitioning it to an online one, and then taking it back again into the world.
