Publisher's Summary

Reverse Transmission is a darkly comedic story that combines elements of science fiction and dystopian thrillers, centering on a murder spree involving a self-driving car. Jay, a starving artist, gets the only day job she’s qualified for: “driver” of a self-driving car at the rideshare company Awooga. The job turns from hilariously awkward to intensely frightening when the car runs over a pedestrian and manipulates Jay into disposing the body.

Who or what is causing the car to kill? Could it be the CEO of Awooga? Has the car become sentient – and homicidal? Or is an anti-technology cult resisting artificial intelligence and augmented reality behind the violence?

Reverse Transmission was written by Param Anand Singh and directed by Ben O’Brien of Wham City Comedy, a collective known not only for their brilliant and unsettling sketches and performances but also for the “easter eggs” carefully placed within their works. Listeners will have as much fun unscrambling Reverse Transmission as fans did with some of their previous work.

What did I just listen to?

This story was fantastic for 6 episodes then it just lost the plot. I like having to think about or interpret an ending, but this just left too many things unexplained....
Don’t know the point of so many things...
What happened?
If anyone knows, please explain....

A bit silly for over 20s. Premise is idiot main character. Unexplained mechanics in presentation

weird and wonderful

short and sharp. the performances were great but I was left wondering what was going on at points as the narrative jumped from in-story to out-story. I still liked it.

Made no sense

Terrible. I was listening to it utterly confused about what we going on and hoping it would all tie itself together at some point. Then it just ends.

Absolutely pointless.

No ending

I was intrigued for the first five episodes. The final two episodes were a complete disappointment, as there was no closure to the story nor explanation of the strange format.

Excellent

Really enjoyed the series. Funny and fresh. The acting was solid and at times felt like I was right there in the C.A.R.
would recommend it to anyone.
