Humans' Legends Humancasting: The Podcast Workshop
THEY ARE TELLING STORIES ABOUT US.
In the postapocalyptic world which used to bloom in green colours only the last shadows of the old world beings remain. They are being exposed and looked at as if they were in a museum of the old times which don’t exist anymore. The world is different, laughter now only exists as a recording on a grainy tape. Even the rainbow which appears after the acidic rain seems faded out, coulourless, with 7 different shades of grey. Only few animals still survive in ever changing conditions ranging between heavy rain and long periods of daught. The majority of natural resources has been replaced by artificial products made by technology, though only a small number of citizens of the world can afford these. The rest of them survive on the edge, in the mud and are the outsiders of the society which consists of no more than a milion specimen. Everyone else is dead.
One thing hasn’t changed. Money is the answer, the ticket to the hall of fame and those who survive. What remains a mystery is how art survived everything. Even now, the humans pass the legends about the past down the generations, they tell stories and sing songs around ever burning lamps spitting more dark smoke into the already destroyed atmosphere. The melodies are winding and cutting through the utter silence of the night and they bring back the memories of a better world. A world which was more colourful and more joyful.
For them, our world is only a memory, but they tell humans’ legends about us.
