Kendall Reviews has taken up DEMOCRACY JONES Podcast as a favorite and gave it a very positive review. Unfortunately I am unable to share it, so I copy/pasted it below. Please visit their link HERE to view the whole thing.
Blending the historical fall of Late Republic Rome, American politics, science fiction, horror, and satire is the mind-bending fiction series Democracy Jones. Set in the year 2040, a violent coup rips the United States apart, leaving millions either killed or uprooted. Survivors, including a pregnant Haisley Jones, fight together to revive democracy.
If you enjoy biting social commentary and the sharp wit of satire, Democracy Jones needs to be on your playlist. Along with an uncanny resemblance to current global political attitudes and an examination of deep division between right- and left-wing parties, you’ll find creepy turkey vultures, scenes reminiscent of Mad Max, and a neural chip programmed to sound exactly like Maya Angelou.
Written and narrated by the very talented Eamon Loingsigh, this serialized story is not only thought-provoking but also highly entertaining. I recommend beginning with the “Teaser” episode, then “Opening Crawl” (noted as the trailer on Spotify), and then proceed to the numbered episodes. Alternatively, you could start with the episode titled “It’s Not Too Late” where Eamon talks about the inspiration behind the story and his real-life hopes to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past.
Currently the series is in Act 1 of 4, so it’s a great time to catch up on past episodes, plus with an average runtime of less than 20 minutes it’s easy to listen to each installment without interruption. You can find Democracy Jones on most podcast platforms or listen directly on the Art of Need website artofneed.com
