What is Our Fair City?
Our Fair City is an episodic audio-drama series, set entirely in a post-apocalyptic future. Basically: it’s a sequential science fiction story told primarily through words, sound effects, and music. The episodes build on each other, and should ideally be listened to in order. Generally, each season is a complete plot arc. Seasons build on each other as well, though you can definitely jump in to a later Season and not be totally lost.

Who are you all, and how did this come to be?
Our Fair City is created by HartLife NFP, an organization of 70+ actors, writers, artists, engineers, lawyers, computer programers, day-dreamers and other ne’er do wells. Most of us are experimenting with audio drama for the first time. Many of us are involved in science and/or education in our day jobs. Nearly all of us have ideological, political, or environmental axes to grind, which may or may not come out in our subject matter. You can learn our names and a bit more about us here.
