Cryptids is a new sci-fi scripted podcast just in time for the Halloween season

PRESS RELEASE — October 3, 2019

Cryptids follows Eve, a pediatric hospice nurse, and Trevor, a late night conspiracy radio show host, in search of an afterlife. Instead, they find a truth beyond their wildest nightmares.

Eve is a true believer. She uses Trevor’s radio show to escape from the death she faces every day while at work. Eve finds faith in believing something else is out there. But, Eve needs to prove that something is real. She forces her way into Trevor’s off-air life, and together they set out to find the truth behind a well-believed conspiracy: aliens on the moon are orchestrating death and harvesting human souls. On their search, the two are forced to face their greatest fears while on the cusp of not only proving the existence of Gods and Monsters, but unveiling one of humankind’s darkest and most profound secrets.

Cryptids was created and written by Alexander V. Thompson. Directed by Devin Shepherd. Produced by Nora Unkel, Devin Shepherd, and Gabriel Rosenstein. The show stars Alexander V. Thompson, Marianna McClellan, William McNulty, and Jenna Krasowski. Sound design by Gina Zdanowicz.

Cryptids will release a new episode every Sunday until the end of October, all Halloween season. The first two episodes are now available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.
