Listen Online! Quorum – The Messenger’s Tale

Throughout history, there has always been a chasm between the bulk of humanity and the enigmatic circle who hold true dominion. Those whose influence remains shrouded, save for the rare instances when their designs cross into the outside world… and the real-world repercussions of their schemes can play out with dramatic results.

Washington, DC, September 2011. A city as renowned for pushing papers as for pushing deadlines.But even now, with the capital city clinging to its archaic traditions, 21st century technology is forcing even this town to adapt — upending industries once deemed indispensable. That said, change in the heart of American government still occurs at a glacial pace.
