The Maeltopia Podcast contains four major narratives thus far:
The Shepherd of Wolves(Complete, 57 episodes)
Red Mother(SOW sequel. Final season premiering 12/13/2022! New episodes every other Tuesday)
The Damnation Machine(Complete, 64 episodes)
Grimland(18 episodes and counting. New releases every other Tuesday)
We recommend listening to SOW before Red Mother.
The other narratives on the Maeltopia Podcast, as well as the Sleep/Wake Cycle Podcast, are separate storylines with their own characters, all taking place within a few decades of each other, all within the literary world of Maeltopia. Thus, they can be listened to in any order.
Our goal with every title is to provide a rich, layered world with interrelated storylines that hint at deeper connections throughout its ever-evolving mythology.

“I am, first and foremost, an artist. The murders are but provision.”
- The Family Man
Haunted by the powerful Red Dream visited upon him by the enigmatic Shepherd of Wolves, the Family Man stumbles across a kill list containing the names of other monstrous serial
killers, some even more infamous than he.
They have been drawn into the Shepherd’s Game—the ultimate contest of killers. And the prize is worth every drop of blood spilled in its name.
"This was my family, and there were no lengths to which I wouldn't go to protect them."
Hard-luck journalist Genevieve Castellano discovers a series of terrifying videotapes at a murder scene, catapulting her on a journey of dark transformation through the secret underbelly of the world.
With a monstrous undead dog and two serial killers at her side, she seeks answers to the Red Mother and the Family Man, all while becoming someone - or something - she no longer recognizes.
"I do not follow orders. I humor them."
- The Conductor
A new breed of human walks the Post Darkness world of Maeltopia.
Having passed through a horrific machine of unknown origin, Maelsapiens wield power unlike anything seen before. But the Machine's dark nature bestows them with more curse than gift, and the Maelsapiens' ever watchful overlords render them more prey than predator.
"I have lived eons, little Wesley. Your world is but a tick of the clock."
- The Voice
The Great Darkness left behind countless Obscuruum - strange artifacts that continue to be discovered, even decades later, posing a very real threat to Post Noctum society.
None are larger or stranger than Grimland - a new island continent shrouded in fog, storms, and mystery.
The place has been staunchly avoided - until now.

The Sleep/Wake Cycle Podcast
Blending supernatural horror with noir, the Sleep/Wake Cycle follows estranged twins Isaiah and Rosemary on their mission to fulfill a secret government agency’s directive to bring the US back from the brink of madness.
Born with strange abilities, the twins investigate the wellness of a republic ravaged by the Great Darkness of 1999.
With doomsday cults pervading society, horrific conspiracies spun more from truth than fiction, and a creeping feeling that hope itself has fled the land, the twins have their work cut out for them.
