Judging by our recent picks for Podcast of the Week, we at Tales Untold Media are clearly still working through our new post-election reality. Fortunately, the folks at Wondery have created some riveting post-election fiction for us to focus on.
Terms is the latest edition to Wondery’s slate of serialized audio fiction. The show launched with the first two episodes earlier this month, with episode 3 published just yesterday.
On election night, two-term president Oliver Pierce watches in disbelief from the White House as Charles Dunwalke wins a controversial electoral college victory. With only 73 days before Dunwalke’s inauguration, president Pierce makes a secret decision to act, with historic and possibly catastrophic consequences.Terms
The show’s frighteningly-not-too-far-fetched storyline picks up on election night, when a populist and uninformed candidate with unclear motives and demagogic tendencies wins the Presidential election (while losing the popular vote). But rather than doing what he can to support and prepare the President-elect, the now lame duck President sets in motion a secret plan to undermine it all.
The episodes—available on iTunes, Stitcher and the Wondery website—are tightly wound and clock in around 20 minutes in length – perfect bite-sized entertainment for dinner prep time or your daily commute.
