Produced by Kai Wilcox on February 5, 2020

How are we to move towards progress in an increasingly globalized and divided world? How will our awareness of our world and ourselves impact the future?

In this piece, author CJ Lanaghen shares the story of Emma, a girl in the process of dying, and her friend Julian. Based on the first verse of Listen Before I Go by Billie Eilish, this story aims to show a side of friendship that not many are able to see, a side in which a dying wish can become the absolute authority in a relationship. With a sparsely decorated soundscape and focus on realism, this story surely isn’t for the faint of heart.

With just about a decade of experience under his belt, he spends most of his free time writing short stories, poems, and audio pieces.

There are so many speculations of what this could be, even space probes are interrupted by this strange source. This is only one of the theories for the gravitational forces with the many planets near it.
