HOME­COM­ING

Gim­let Me­dia

Athleisure - - Bingely Steaming -

Some­times you have things to do and when you can't think of mu­sic you want to hear on your Spo­tify ac­count, it's time to put a pod­cast into your rotation. We're al­ways lis­ten­ing to a num­ber of great shows and ear­lier this year we stum­bled upon Home­com­ing.

We lis­ten to a num­ber of well pro­duced pod­casts, but the special as­pect of this one is the fact that it takes place within snip­pets of con­ver­sa­tion whether it's hap­pen­ing in re­al­time, a flash­back, a record­ing, etc. Al­though the sec­ond sea­son is cur­rently be­ing re­leased, even the very first episode throws you into a world that you're not sure what's go­ing on. It doesn't help that a num­ber of the char­ac­ters are also con­fused as many have mem­ory loss!

The story sur­rounds the mil­i­tary, its sol­diers and those that were hired to ex­tract in­for­ma­tion from these sol­diers! You take a jour­ney with those that are hired to learn about the sol­diers and re­al­ize that ev­ery­one is re­ceiv­ing par­tial in­for­ma­tion and what the moral­ity is for those that are try­ing to help the sol­diers ver­sus those that will do any­thing at any cost to move up the lad­der. This sea­son, there is a book that can be read on­line that fol­lows the jour­ney of one of the main sol­diers so that you can un­der­stand more back­story on what is tak­ing place.

This psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller is voiced by David Sch­wim­mer, Cather­ine Keener, Michael Cera and Os­car Isaac.
