“The Candidates” continues our journey into the wider world of Quorum via “found audio” pieces — this time exploring some of the political machinations referenced in “The Messenger’s Tale”… and hinting at some previously unrevealed connections to certain characters in “The Gambler’s Tale: All That Glitters.” As with our regular episodes, these are full-cast audio productions, and will both bring back familiar voices from Quorum and introduce some new ones.
“The Candidates” takes place around the events of “The Messenger’s Tale“ and documents both the buildup to and the fallout from the events of that interlude episode.
Rated AD-PG, so parental guidance is suggested
Contains several instances of “damn,” JC’s name in vain, “bastard,” shameless pandering for political advantage, flagrant corruption, sexual harassment, exploitation of subordinates, and some fairly unethical collusion between candidates and financial benefactors.
