Good

Its difficult to first get into but if you are patient and let the story unfold it is quite wonderful.

Entropy test

Anyone else keep getting triggered by an entropy test that went around tumblr in like 2012. I love WTNV so giving this a shot. Hopefully it stay creepy yet not so auditorily triggering.

Stunning

Incredibly well written. Absolutely obsessed.

Each season of Within the Wires stands alone as its own story, with different narrators and timelines, but they do overlap. You can immerse yourself in the entire universe by listening to the first five seasons, or start listening to the most recent season.

An immersive fiction podcast using found audio from an alternate universe.

Season Six, "Caregiver," is a ghost story set in Ireland during the 1970s, told through personal journals. It premiers on October 12th 2021. A young nurse arrives in rural Ireland to work as a live-in carer for an elderly woman recovering from a broken hip. But it doesn’t take long for her to realize that something is deeply wrong in her new home. 

She’s troubled by strange dreams, she hears noises in the night, and the one road out stretches and changes and defies time. 

As she struggles to keep a grip on her own reality, she begins to question what happened in this place. The house was once part of a small village, but after the Great Reckoning it is the only building left standing. Has the death and destruction the region suffered lingered? Are the lost generations haunting this one small home? What is her new patient keeping hidden about a past only she remembers?

Within the Wires is written by Jeffrey Cranor and Janina Matthewson, with original music by Mary Epworth.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/withinthewires.png

Listen. Remember. Comprehend.

Welcome to the relaxation study. This ten-cassette series will guide you towards relaxation, focus, and total body awareness. Listen to these guides with authorized headphones provided to you by the Institute’s security team.

Welcome to TV Tropes. This page will give you an overview of the podcastWithin the Wiresand link to the various tropes associated with it.

Within the Wires is a serial Science Fictionpodcast from Night Vale Presents, written by Welcome to Night Vale co-creator Jeffrey Cranor and Janina Matthewson. It takes the form of found audio from a strangely divergent world set after something called 'The Great Reckoning'. Each season is a different type of found audio, generally cassette tapes of various sorts.

Episodes are available on Youtube, iTunes, Libsyn and the Night Vale Presents website. Bonus episodes are available for subscribers to the show's Patreon page.

End Side A.[ding][click]

The first season takes the form of instructional cassette tapes distributed to an inpatient of a research hospital called "The Institute". Over the course of these tapes, the Institute is revealed to be less than benign, the world strangely divergent from our own, and the cassettes very different from the Institute's standard-issue curriculum, particularly in the increasingly personalized way their Narrator (voiced by Matthewson) addresses the patient.

The second season includes art museum audio guides for an art exhibition during the 1970s in the same universe. These cassette tapes take place over the course of about 15 years, and are principally narrated by artist Roimata Mangakāhia (Rima Te Wiata) as she discusses the works of her peer, painter Claudia Atieno.

The third season is a political thriller set in Chicago in the 1950s and is told through the dictations of Michael Witten (Lee LeBreton), a high-ranking Society bureaucrat who becomes the target of a conspiracy by his peers.

The fourth season is a series of tape recordings made over the course of the 1990s sent by a mother (Mona Greene) to her daughter, who is leading a family-oriented commune called "The Cradle", which was previously mentioned in Black Box and Season 3, while she is travelling the world and forging alliances.

The fifth season is a story about the romantic relationship between two women, Indra (Amiera Darwish) and Nan, starting from its cordial aftermath in 2008 and going backwards to its distrustful end to its beginnings in 1997.

In addition, Patreon subscribers receive episodes of a series called Black Box, which includes flight-recorder tapes from a cargo pilot (voiced by Cranor) carrying an unregistered passenger. Black Box episodes come out four times a year, on solstices and equinoxes.

And now, Side B. [click]


Within The Wires Main Page, Side B: Tropes Exemplified in the Podcast:

  • Affably Evil: Michael Witten: loving spouse, supporter of labor rights and free speech, appreciator of the arts, and an occasionally bad-tempered, cutthroat Society loyalist politician.
    • According to the final reel Amy, the person behind the founding of The Institute.
  • All Issues Are Political Issues: Zigzagged in "Cassette 1: Tate Modern (1971)" when Mangakāhia dismisses art critic Alphra Bond as hypersensitive, imagining political subversiveness and incitement to war in works she reviewed.

    Mangakāhia: Bond believed all artists benefited from war and strife, as it gave them a more interesting story to tell. ...Of course the idea...is abhorrent and simplistic

    • But the painting "The Charcoal Dish," of which Mangakāhia is a fan and Bond the sole detractor, may genuinely be a subversive critique of the sinister One World Order of Wires, depicting innocent people happily served up from a giant dish-shaped building onto a laden picnic blanket, to be eaten by hidden monsters.
  • Allegory: Discussed in-universe. Claudia Atieno's painting "Still Life with Orchid" was meant to communicate the unknowable, cyclical nature of existence through Life/Death Juxtaposition: a living orchid with dead leaves and oranges with subtly rotting undersides. But much to her displeasure, most viewers read it as a fatalistic commentary on death's inevitability.
  • Alternate History: Small details revealing how the Alternate Universe of Wires became so different from our own are gradually parceled out over the Cassettes.
    • Season 1's "Cassette #3: Insomnia, Feet" provides clues that the story is set in the early Eighties, while "Cassette #5: Focus, Nose" reveals the point of historical divergence, when it was decided that nationalism, tribalism and familial loyalty were the root causes of war and violence, to be eliminated through drastic social engineering, in the aftermath of a catastrophic war in the early half of the twentieth century..
    • Season 2's "Cassette 1: Tate Modern (1971)" terms the Point of Divergence "The Great Reckoning" and implies that, compared to its mundane historical counterpart, it was comparatively brief, but exponentially more devastating on a worldwide level, which facilitated creation of the One World Order called "The Society" within a decade. Season 2, Episode 6 mentions "godlike explosions" that poisoned the air in the 1920s, which may point to nuclear warfare.
    • A Season 2 cassette mentions that George VI was the last king of the United Kingdom. In Real Life, he was crowned in 1936 and reigned until his death in 1952, suggesting that the UK still wasn't a part of The Society at the time.
    • Episode 2 of Season 3, dated August 13, 1953, mentions that the so-called Removal of Nations Act was passed the previous year and forced the British Empire to cede any imperial claims of Ireland (and probably the rest of the Empire as well).
    • In episode 5 of season 3, Michael mentions the then recent discovery of the structure of DNA by a woman at Cambridge the previous year, suggesting that in this timeline, Rosalind Franklin earned recognition for her work in the field while she was still alive.
  • Alternate Techline: In The '80s of Wires, Sony Walkman cassette players exist alongside unobtrusive, standard-issue abdominal "black box" cybernetic implants that monitor and manage vitals and store memories. Should someone need more direct surveillance, however, this implant will be replaced with a boxy proto-Tracking Chip so large and unwieldy it distends the abdomen.
  • Alternate Universe: The world of Wires is a False Utopia that divorces children from the concept of family, separating them from parents, and eliminating/repressing memories of siblings and childhood relationships at the age of ten.
  • Ambiguous Ending: Season 1's "Cassette #10: Horopito" will be sent to the cottage where Hester has sent Oleta, but we have no way of knowing if Oleta ever receives it (though between Side A and Side B, we hear sounds of the ocean, suggesting that she does), or if she will wait there for Hester. We are unsure if Hester will be able to successfully wipe the Institute's records, or if they will be able to track down Oleta again.
    • Potentially resolved in Season 2, Cassette #10: Karikari Contemporary Gallery (1986). Hester is the narrator of this tape, and she has returned to the cottage where Oleta was sent. Hester has a wife she lives with, and that they have Horopito #4, the painting she left for Oleta, but it's not stated if this actually is Oleta (as a successful escape would make her a wanted criminal, Hester's not going to leave evidence on a museum guide).
  • …And That Little Girl Was Me: ZigZagged when "Cassette #1: Stress, Shoulders" Side B has its Narrator instructing the patient to imagine themself as a dragonfly handled by a little girl. While the metaphor would initially suggest that the Narrator is the girl grown up, Cassette #2 implies and Cassette #6 confirms that the girl is the patient.
  • Applicability: Discussed and Zigzagged in-universe, as Mangakāhia ostensibly allows for multiple interpretations of Claudia Atieno's paintings, even while explaining Atieno's intent and blatantly favoring certain readings herself. She frequently asks questions of the listener to underscore this contrast during her analyses:

    Mangakāhia: Do you agree? Have I implied that you should agree? Do you have free will?

    • Tellingly, a painting she gives listeners full leeway to interpret is one she seems mildly embarrassed to talk about: "Woman in Bath (1971)." She is the subject.

    Mangakāhia: Look at the painting, make your own judgments. I cannot say anything else.

  • Arc Symbol: The image of an insect getting its wings plucked off gets used in every season. The damselfly itself is the cover image of the podcast, seen above.
    • In season 1, it's part of the relaxation cassettes, and also part of the shared history between Hester and Oleta.
    • In season 2, it's in one of Claudia's paintings, "Child and Damselfly".
    • In season 3, it's how Michael describes the way Vishwathi, Karen, and Amy have apparently ruined him.
    • In season 4, it's featured in a sermon from "The Hand".
    • In season 5, it's part of a children's book that was required reading at Indra's childhood center.
  • Arc Words: Or rather, "Arc Sounds"; throughout tapes of season 1, sounds of the ocean, i.e. wind, waves crashing against a shore, are played in the patient's tapes. In the final episode, the same sounds are heard outside of a tape.
  • Ascended Extra: Season 1's Narrator of the Institute's Relaxation Cassettes, in passing asides about her life, talks about a favorite, underappreciated artist whose work she owns. This painter, Roimata Mangakāhia, is the principal narrator of Season 2, where she analyzes the works of her own favorite artist in museum audio guides.
  • Ascetic Aesthetic: The Narrator of Season 1's Relaxation Cassettes refers to the Institute as "white and sterile."
  • Back to Front: Season 5 is a romance drama told this way, beginning with both parties having moved on, building to their turbulent break up, and ending with their romance's beginnings.
  • Bad Liar: Season 1's Narrator is really bad at hiding just how much she knows about the patient listening to the tapes personally, such as locations of scars and her childhood.
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: In Tape 4 of Season 3, Michael reminisces on when he first met his wife and remarks that a moment that particularly caught his attention was when she didn't react strangely when he identified as a man since many people still addressed him by his pre-transition name at the time.
  • Beleaguered Childhood Friend: By the time "Cassette #4: Sadness, Lungs" is received, the patient, trapped in the Institute and struggling to find a way out, rediscovers a childhood companion who offers further aid in escaping: the Cassettes' Narrator herself, who reveals that she's offering this aid purely because of remembering their prior relationship.
  • Big Brother Is Watching: Season 1's Narrator makes a point of explaining the Sinister Surveillance of the Institute's cameras and security nurses, but in Cassettes #3 and #5, also uses the visualization exercises as a pretext to describe times when the patient was tailed and observed by multiple agents in the outside world for unwittingly deviant behavior, precipitating admission to the Institute.

    Narrator: They are watching you...They have sunglasses, and cigarettes. They have books, but they are not reading. They have an unpleasant dog with them...They are neither smiling nor laughing. They look at you. From far away.

    • In Season 2, the men and their unpleasant dog are mentioned often in Claudia's paintings and Roimata's stories, watching Claudia. In Season 3, they begin watching Michael too.
    • In Season 5 Indra is convinced that Nan, an Internal Investigation Division agent, had been spying on her and her theater troupe, and this is the reason they break up. Other lines throughout the season also indicate that they were one of the agents with cigarettes and unpleasant dogs as well
  • Body Horror:
    • In "Cassette #4: Sadness, Lungs," the Narrator uses an autogenic exercise to reveal and explain hidden, standard-issue Cybernetic implants to the Institute patient. A hollow between the patient's lower left rib and left hip is supposedly occupied by a mechanical creature with "many legs". It collects their memories.
    • In "Cassette #9: Loss, Hands" the Narrator explains replacement devices typically issued to patients of the Extensive Studies Lab, and elaborates on the surgical wounds incurred in gory, explicit detail. The "creature" was a black box that monitored the patient's vitals, now replaced with a transmitter used to track the patient should they try to escape.
  • Bolivian Army Ending: Season 4 ends with Freya warning Sigrid that the Hedmark Cradle is about to be raided by the IID and that they should stand their ground. The first episode of Season 5 states that no Cradle was found near Oslo, where the Hedmark Cradle is, which means Sigrid either disobeyed her mother's request, or the IID killed them and lied about it.
  • Bookends: Season 2, if the donor-only Episode #0 is included. Both episode #0 and #10 are audio tours of the Karikari Contemporary Gallery, set 17 years apart.
  • Brainwashing for the Greater Good: The Society of Wires ensures the nonviolence of its citizens in the aftermath of a devastating war, the Great Reckoning, through pharmacologic and cybernetic repression of memories, and batteries of psychological programming, introduced when a child turns ten.
    • Season 1's patient, after illustrating deviant behavior, is supposedly undergoing a rehabilitative variation of these interventions during their stay at the Institute.
    • Season 2 reveals that people who were older than ten when The Society perfected these measures only underwent a less extensive reeducation program, and this age cohort is granted somewhat wider latitude in behavior and opinions. Claudia Atieno, as an artist born near the end of the Reckoning who lived through The Society's creation, is allowed to make paintings that depict and comment on now-forbidden family life and violent war, some of which are displayed in the "Remembrance Wing" of the Tate Modern.
  • Breeding Cult: The need to wrest control of children and family life out of the hands of the Society forms the crux of the Cradle's ideology.
  • Call-Back: Season 2, Cassette #10 is narrated by Hester, the narrator of Season 1. She asks if the listener is answering her questions out loud, much like Oleta accidentally said "freedom" out loud in season 1, and says not to.
  • Call-Forward: Season 3, Cassette #9 implies that Vivienne's child was Nell, Oleta's older sister. Cassette #10 continues on to indicate that Vivienne's second child, presumably Oleta, was a difficult child and Vivienne didn't want to let her go.
  • Cast Full of Gay: As is not uncommon in Night Vale Presents productions, most seasons of Within the Wires produced to date have featured LGBT characters in prominent roles:
    • In season 1, the narrator, Hester, seems to have been in love with the main character, a childhood friend named Oleta, and is mentioned in Season 2 to be married to a woman.
    • In season 2, Claudia Atieno is mentioned to have had both male and female lovers, and the narrator, Roimata, is shown to have been very close to her, though whether or not she had romantic feelings for Claudia is left unclear.
    • In season 3, the main character, Michael Witten, is a trans man married to a cisgender woman.
    • In season 5, the main character, Indra, is married to a woman, and was previously in a romantic relationship with the listener, Nan.
  • Caustic Critic: In Season 2, Alphra Bond, who is mentioned to have strongly disliked the work of Claudia Atieno.
  • Climbing the Cliffs of Insanity: Invoked in "Cassette #4: Sadness, Lungs," by the Narrator, who uses a visualization exercise as a pretext to prepare the patient for a difficult phase once they've eventually Escaped from the Lab.

    Narrator: Remember: the cave is high, and it is hidden, and it is difficult to get to. Falling water thunders past you and sprays you as you climb. The slope is slippery and your clothes are wet. It is difficult, but freedom always is.

  • Cold-Blooded Torture: The Extensive Studies Lab. Before the "Sounds of Carpentry", several tests are administered to patients. While we are spared a clear description of the tests themselves, we are given hints as the tapes prepare the patient for what is to come, and afterwards talk of the recovery that they will be in the midst of. Cassette #7, for example, guides the patient through rolling their head from side to side, saying that the upcoming test will put them through this motion at speeds beyond what their muscles are capable of, and that they WILL be concussed.
  • Continuity Nod: While each season so far has been fairly self-contained with its own central characters, some overlap does occur:
    • In the last tape of Season 2, Hester, the narrator of the Season 1 tapes, introduces the current tape.
    • Throughout season 3, Michael sometimes mention that he and his wife, Vivienne, own a painting by Claudia Atienno, an artist and supporting character from season 2.
    • A raid on a group with weapons mentioned by Michael in Season 3 is revealed in Season 4 to have been against the original Cradle, and was the incident that killed Freya's father
    • Jure in Season 4 works for KR Development Inc. and serves as a contact between it and the Cradle
    • In Season 5 Indra mentions the Cradle as possibly having had a location in Scandanavia, as well as there being a rumor that possibly wiped out in a government raid, though she is not sure
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: In Season 3, Karen Roberts, another Society bureaucrat of similar rank to Michael, is a supposedly former corporate executive who, as far as Michael has been able to find out, still hasn't sold her shares in her old company, KR Development Inc., despite having a government position where she manages trade. Also, there are rumors that militias in the Central or South American region are still being supplied by weapons from her company.
  • Crazy-Prepared: At the end of "Cassette #9: Loss, Hands" the Narrator suddenly urges the patient to obey a series of commands which will facilitate escape, incapacitate the security nurse and allow them to meet again but only if she has timed the duration of the cassette perfectly, and if the tape was turned on to play at exactly the right time.
  • Cult of Personality: Freya, who isn't sure if she believes in religion, but is happy to use the language and techniques of faith to make her own teachings and the ideals of her community synonymous.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Downplayed, in "Cassette #4: Sadness, Lungs," it's revealed that people are possessed of a standard implant between ribs and hip that removes and stores memories, and is implied to manage instincts that include the impulse to violence. The Narrator attempts to use autogenic exercises to let the patient control their implant enough to restore some memories.
  • Deadly Euphemism: "Carpentry" in "Cassette #5: Focus, Nose." After listing the tools used in the Extensive Studies Lab, the Narrator says that the sounds of carpentry do not always mean carpentry is taking place, and refers to these procedures and noises only as carpentry for the duration of her tapes.
  • Dissonant Serenity: The tapes in the first season usually have spa music playing in the background of the spoken instructions, which sometimes get into pretty nightmarish territory when describing the workings of the Institute and other things.
  • Dystopia Is Hard:
    • Discussed in Cassette #3: Insomnia, Feet," as the Narrator details the effort Big Brother takes in maintaining select freedoms in a civilization that engages in top-down social engineering.

      Narrator: Imagine the work that goes into making Frisbees and adopting dogs and recording music and allowing public dance spaces. Imagine all of the work people with sunglasses and cigarettes standing in cheering smiling crowds must do so that these crowds can cheer and smile.

    • Season 3, set during the 1950s of the podcast's timeline, takes place during the early days of the Society's foundation and shows the difficulties people working for it, such as the season's protagonist Michael Witten, faced in restructuring the infrastructure and legal systems of the old world.
  • Empty Shell: In "Cassette #5: Focus, Nose." the Narrator warns of the fate of an intractably violent patient, eventually sent to the Extensive Studies Lab to undergo "carpentry."

    Narrator: No one smelled sawdust. As I record this cassette I am looking at that patient, right now. Looking. Right. At. It.

  • Escaped from the Lab: Invoked by Season 1's Narrator of the Relaxation Cassettes, as she gradually drops more explicit hints about the Institute's layout, surroundings, and security flaws to aid the patient.
  • Equal-Opportunity Evil: The Society might brainwash and forcibly lobotomize people, but it doesn't discriminate on the basis of sexuality, gender, or race. It's not perfect—Michael does describe having some problems with people misgendering him when he was earlier in his transition—but it actually seems to be slightly further along than our world; this is especially prominent in Michael's situation, since he holds an important government function while living as an openly transgender man, something that wouldn't have been possible in the real-life 1950s, when his storyline is set.
  • Every Episode Ending: After the credits, each episode ends with some variant of "Our time is done. It's you time now," followed by three allegedly relaxing items filled in, Mad Libs-style, by a distorted voice. The three items are frequently bizarre non-sequiturs.

    Our time is done. It's you time now. Time to draw a bath, play some music, and light an aromatic candle. Today's scented candle is: WOODCHUCK MAKING PANCAKES. Today's relaxing music is: WHOLE NOTE FOR SOLO BASSOON. Today's bath is filled with: CEREAL MILK.

  • False Utopia: The New Society. An end to wars and conflict, accomplished by creating a global state that tears children from their parents and arrests anyone who challenges them.
  • Foreshadowing: In an early tape of Season 3, Michael mentions in passing that Amy had some crafty hobby and thinks it's either pottery or woodworking. Hint: woodworking is a major part of carpentry.
  • For Want of a Nail: Invoked in Season 3, Cassette #10, Michael wonders if his failure to invite Amy to dinner and get to know her is somehow responsible for her work with Vishwathi Ramadoss and Karen Roberts to found the Institute.
  • Genre Roulette: As of season 3, each season has leaned towards a different genre from the others.
    • Season 1 establishes a lot of the world of Within the Wires, stars someone who is imprisoned within it and is more of a dystopic story.
    • Season 2 is more of a quiet drama focusing on a woman's relationship with a close friend (and possibly more).
    • Season 3 is a political thriller.
    • Season 4 returns to a more straightforward dystopian story as it focuses on a group trying to survive outside of the Society's rules.
    • Season 5 is a romantic drama told in reverse
    • Black Box is a fugitive's flight from authority figures.
  • Idiot Ball: Season 1's Narrator exploits a trusted position of authority within the Institute to deliver her increasingly-transparent instructions under cover of an existent program, using her status to avoid supervision or review. But it's nothing short of a miracle that she and her off-curriculum tapes evade suspicion or discovery given the patient's mistakes, especially after the patient has a behavioral episode, during a botched escape attempt she directly intervenes in. Staff may have become somewhat suspicious by Cassette #9, when the patient is still allowed to listen to the tapes, but is no longer allowed to use headphones.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • In one of the tapes of Season 1, it's mentioned that the main character had a Siouxsie and the Banshees cassette on her when she was admitted to the Institute, meaning the band came to exist despite the Alternate History setting of the podcast.
    • In Season 5 Indra mentions having read V for Vendetta after having gotten it off the black market, meaning the graphic novel still exists despite the new world. One has to wonder how it turned out when it was inspired by the Society instead of Thatcher era England.
  • Is This Thing Still On?: In Season 2, many of Roimata's later audio tours drift off into deeply personal commentary on Claudia. Cassette #10 mentions that many of the cassettes were never used for this reason.
  • Karma Houdini: Vishwathi Ramadoss and Karen Roberts get a slap on the wrist, if that.
  • Lobotomy: In "Cassette #5: Focus, Nose," the Narrator reveals that the rare intractably violent patient will undergo "carpentry" in the Extensive Studies Lab, by way of warning her listener to maintain the appearance of compliance.
  • Locked Up and Left Behind: Done by Rosie to David once she realized he was the reason the men in suits kept finding them. She tied him to a tree, loosely enough that he could free himself but tightly enough that it would take some time. She's not sure if he managed to escape, or if a bear or other wild animal caught him first.
  • Love Makes You Evil: Defied by the Institute and The Society of Wires. "Cassette #5: Focus, Nose." reveals that they consider parental and familial affection one of the factors that resulted in a massive, world-destroying war. Because of this, children are separated from their parents and siblings at the age of 10, after which they are raised and educated by caretakers instead.
  • The Men in Black: Men in dark suits, with sunglasses and cigarettes, and their unpleasant dogs. The Institute and its founders, Vishwathi Ramadoss and Karen Roberts use them for their Sinister Surveillance.
    • Nan is implied to have been one of these agents in Season 5
  • Missing Episode: In-universe. In Season 2, Cassette #10, it is stated that Roimata made 11 audio tours, 9 of which were for museums still in existence. The narrator of Cassette #10 was only able to obtain 5 of the cassettes, which means the podcast listeners have heard cassettes that the narrator has not. In particular, it seems highly unlikely that Hester, the narrator, got a copy of Cassette #9, as it clarifies information about cliff diving that she claims not to know.
    • There is also a missing episode for the podcast listeners, however. Including the donor-only episode #0, only 10 recordings of Roimata's have been released.
  • Nameless Narrative: In Season 1, no character featured, not even the patient or the narrator, gets a proper name until Cassette #6, which identifies the patient as Oleta and the narrator as Hester.
  • One World Order: "Cassette #5: Focus, Nose" talks about how, after a massive war, all nationalism, flags, and soldiers were "done away with," and replaced with the Society. Given the later description of what happens in the Extensive Studies Lab, there's the question of how said soldiers were "done away with." It may have gone beyond just disbanding their units...
  • Opposites Attract: Indra and Nan in Season 5, as Indra is a emotional, artistic rebel while Nan, based on Indra's descriptions, is more level headed and straight-laced. Reflected in their careers as well, as Indra was part of a Society critical theater troupe while Nan was a government employee
  • Parting Words Regret: In Season 2, Cassette #9, Roimata discusses her last conversation with Claudia. Claudia was finally willing to go through with the cliff-diving that Roimata has been attempting to convince her to try; Roimata seems to deeply regret failing to warn her friend that the tide was out, and it was not safe to dive at that time. It is evident but unstated that she feels responsible for her friend's death.
  • Plagiarism in Fiction: In Season 2, Roimata's tapes eventually start revealing that Claudia had a habit of taking concepts and outlines of paintings or drawings that other artists, Roimata included, had tinkered with in private and stealing the ideas and creating fully fledged artworks based on those ideas and claiming to have come up with them herself. Of particular note is a painting whose composition and imagery Claudia ripped off from a friend she deliberately let take the fall and be accused of plagiarizing her work.
  • Reality Ensues: Season 2, Episode 10 states that Roimata's more emotional tapes were never actually used, as they were judged "not up to museum standards". (Although this is a bit of Fridge Logic, because apparently, as seen above, nobody at the secure government facility was quality-testing Hester's tapes.)
  • Room 101: The Extensive Studies Lab.
  • Rule of Three: The Every Episode Ending lists three items.
  • Second-Person Narration: Subverted. Season 1's Narrator of the Relaxation Cassettes addresses the Institute's patient as "you" and feigns impartiality as a purely instructional, pseudo-omniscient figure in those exercises that mimic a typical guided meditation, but as her instructions deviate to become peculiarly specific, she eventually drops the façade to refer to herself as "I" at the end of the first cassette, and addresses the patient with increasing directness in subsequent installments.
  • Speculative Fiction LGBT: Like the other Night Vale Presents podcasts, this alternate world is considerably more accepting of LGBT people than the real world (see Cast Full of Gay above).
  • Stalker with a Crush:
    • "Cassette #8: Awareness, Eyes" as part of its visualization exercise, has the Narrator explain how the patient attracted the attention of the institute via a jealous romantic admirer reporting deviant behavior. Hester spent months just happening to meet Oleta in the park as she was running, and then at the coffee shop, where she determined that Oleta did not remember her. It is implied that this lack of recognition led Hester to turn Oleta in to the Institute.
    • In Season 2, ambiguously, Claudia Atieno's lover, Pavel. It is mentioned in Cassette #2 that someone anonymous started sending her pieces of dead animals after Claudia had thrown him out for the third and seemingly final time. Claudia supposedly didn't read anything threatening into it, telling Roimata that Pavel often sent her studies he made for sculptures and figured the animal parts were just that.
  • Starting a New Life: Crossed with Going Native. The members of the Cradle and its similar groups do this when they leave the New Society to go into the wilderness.
  • The Tape Knew You Would Say That: Played With in "Cassette #9: Loss, Hands," when the Narrator attempts to account for the presence and potential reactions of a security nurse when the patient can no longer use headphones or listen unsupervised. While Oleta is being treated after time in the Extensive Studies Lab, Hester walks Oleta through the nurse's procedure and, eventually, provides an escape plan accounting for the nurse being distracted by the tape's instructions, giving Oleta a window of opportunity to break free. However, as Hester points out, she can't know if the recording was properly timed for the plan to work.
  • Tempting Fate: Michael hopes he never meets a child who has to spend time in the Institute. It is strongly implied that Oleta, from Season 1, is Vivienne's daughter.
  • Tested on Humans:
    • Implied in Season 1, when people are sent to the Institute's "Extensive Studies Lab," but the Narrator tells the patient not to think about what's happening there.
    • "Cassette #7: Doubt, Head" goes into greater detail about some of what happens in the Extensive Studies Lab, explaining standard procedures to the patient after recapture following a failed escape attempt, and transfer to the program.
  • Two Aliases, One Character: Gwen Nettles, the secondary narrator for Season 5, is revealed to be the same person as Nan, the listener for the season and Indra's ex-girlfriend, having taken the name as an alias when spying on Indra's theatre troupe
  • Unfortunate Implications: In-universe. Michael points out that, given Britain has only just given up its control of Ireland (season 3 is set in the 50s), a London office shutting down a Society-critical play in Dublin on flimsy grounds doesn’t exactly look great.
  • Wham Line: In Season 1, all the Cassettes had been about preparing the patient for escape from The Institute. Cassette #6 ends on an announcement of a sudden acceleration in their timetable. "This is taking too long. I didn’t want this to take this long!... 2:05am. I want you to grab whatever you can and run. I want to get you out!"
    • Season 2, Cassette 9 has an extremely spoiler-y one that only makes sense in context: I didn't tell her it was low tide.
    • Season 3, Episode 10 which features a call forward revealing a surprise connection to Season 1: “a child is not a carpentry project you can keep carving and sanding”
  • Wham Episode: "Cassette #7: Doubt, Head" opens with the words "Welcome to the Extensive Studies Lab Preparation Program", revealing that the patient was recaptured when trying to escape The Institute between this and Cassette #6. It's not about relaxation anymore (not that it ever was). Now it's about survival.
    • Season 3, Reel 10: June 21, 1961, which reveals Michael’s secretary Amy Castillo is the founder of the Institute with the backing of Vishwathi Ramadoss and Karen Roberts, thus making them the Greater-Scope Villain of Season 1
  • What the Hell, Hero?: In the Sree Chrita episode, Roimata gives an extended posthumous callout to Claudia via art exhibit. Back in the 60s, Claudia copied the work in progress of a mutual friend, Vanessa Nguyen, then let everybody think Vanessa copied her, which tanked Vanessa's career. Roimata feels bad about keeping quiet for so long, and is in the anger stage of grief over Claudia's death, so she lends Vanessa's painting to the museum and has them hang it right across from Claudia's, then makes sure the audio guide explicitly says Vanessa's was painted first multiple times.
  • World Half Empty: The Great Reckoning was exponentially worse than any war in our timeline—in the "Museum Audio Guide #6: Montreal Museum of Fine Arts", Roimata says that there are only two hundred million people on the entire planet as of the 1970s. For comparison, the population of our world in the '70s is estimated to have been a little over 4 billion. No wonder the Society took hold so easily.

‘Within the Wires’ Season 2: This Haunting Audio Mystery Shows the Best of What Podcasts Can Be

Never heard of “Within the Wires” before? The podcast’s latest episode will have you hooked in no more than 10 words: “Welcome to the Tate Modern, of the former United Kingdom.” Presented plainly, with a hint of warmth and a dollop of intrigue, “Within the Wires” is an audio fiction series that draws its power from phrases like “former United Kingdom.” To us, they feel like jarring glitches in reality, but within the world of the show they’re treated as mere fact.

The thrilling first season of “Within the Wires” (a production of the “Night Vale Presents” network) was told through a single narrator, taking the form of a series of relaxation tapes that, over time, revealed a world much more complex than a disembodied voice instructing you to pay attention to your breathing. Roping in themes of family and mental health, showing an otherworldly sense of memory loss, it took the simplest of premises and opened a portal to an incredibly dense world that took the very idea of imagination head-on.

Now, in Season 2, those relaxation tapes have been swapped out for a new story, a series of audio tours at world-renowned art museums. Rather than an unidentified narrator directly addressing the audience as the primary subject, this new series of episodes tells the story of an enigmatic painter named Claudia Atieno and her role in a strange alternate history where individuals are collected into an all-encompassing event referred to as “the Great Reckoning.”

Much as Season 1 asked listeners to question whether or not this narrator had benevolent motives or if their version of the past was unreliable, this new speaker Roimata Mangakāhia (played by Rima Te Wiata) tells of her personal interaction with Atieno. Rather than spend an introductory episode laying the foundation for how this version of society evolved from a fundamental change in social and governmental order, writers Jeffrey Cranor and Janina Matthewson (the latter served as Season 1’s hypnotic narrator) leave a trail of clues for the audience to decipher within each successive “tape.”

Te Wiata continues the tradition that Matthewson started of approaching this performance as a deceptively calming influence. Within an otherwise straightforward exercise, Te Wiata (whom audiences may know best as the foster mother in last year’s “Hunt for the Wilderpeople”) finds a tiny degree of temptation and mischief in these recordings, asking rhetorical questions designed to shake the listener from investing their sole energy in piecing together this mystery and engaging with the story on a thematic level, too.

With Mangakāhia serving as a museum tour guide of sorts, she explains the paintings at these theoretical exhibits, down to the brushstroke detail of a still life painting. Despite the occasional break in these descriptions to flip the experience back on the listener, Cranor and Matthewson take full advantage of the rhythms of a soothing performance. Sometimes the most relevant details are buried deep within a lengthy sentence or nestled in the titles of the paintings themselves.

Just as there’s an arc to the story that Mangakāhia is telling, unspooling Atieno’s fate, Cranor and Matthewson give this narrator character her own history. At times, she’s forthcoming with personal details. An instant later, she’s guarded. Navigating those constant shifts in perspective and attention isn’t an easy change to manage, but Te Wiata shades each new revelatory anecdote with another emotional layer, even within the calming range of an art docent.

While “the Great Reckoning” represents a giant change in the world being built out in these episodes, this season of “Within the Wires” benefits from setting each tour within a recognizable museum. Visualization was such a strong theme in Season 1, asking the listener to project their own fears and anxieties into the subconscious of a fictitious medical institute patient. Here, the audience is asked to not only imagine the paintings being described, but the strange world that helped give them life.

Using the restrictions of the medium to make something that works to their advantage is something that Cranor and his counterparts have done over the past five years of “Welcome to Night Vale.” Within the wires and outside the walls, this series (unconnected to “Night Vale” in story, but similar in care given to character and form) finds the perfect balance between withholding key information and having that mysterious unraveling inform the story itself. Engaging all of listeners’ senses through a fundamentally audio format is an impressive feat of storytelling, no matter if it involves paintings of houses, memories of waterfalls, or the basic questions of what it means to create something beautiful. It’s the kind of show that reminds you why podcasts exist in the first place.

“Within the Wires” Season 2 releases new episodes every Tuesday. You can find more information about the show here.

[tape recorder turns on]

Amy, do you know anything about declawing cats? I know that a lot of people do it but I don’t know if it’s – well, humane. Do you know if there have been studies on this kind of thing? Can you do some research and find out how this affects cats, I don’t know how people would even begin to understand whether and when cats are happy, apart from the purring and lap cuddling, but can you see if they have… can you see if they know whether declawing makes them unhappy? Obviously Vivi and I don’t wanna make a living creature that is in our care unhappy, but well, there’s been some damage to a tapestry, to an antique tapestry that’s rescued from Belgium during the Reckoning, when most works of art were lost. So, I don’t know that there’s a good way to decide which is more important, a rare preserve of the world we lost or the happiness of a living creature that is in your care. Still, some studies would help. If you could look on the studies on the well-being of declawed cats, Amy, that would be helpful.

Goddammit, Amy, where have you put today’s papers? Papers first thing, god, and turn that fucking music off. [music turns off] Amy, nevermind about the papers, I found them. They were under all this paperwork from Dr. Wood’s office. Thanks for revising the pregnancy contracts, but always keep the newspapers on top.

Shit! Shit, Amy!

Amy, why didn’t you tell me about the papers as soon as I came in? I assume you saw them, I assume that even if you covered them up with a bunch of hospital paperwork, as if that’s the most important thing. Fuck! Shit, Amy, I dunno what to do! How did they find out? Why did they write this up without asking me for comment? What is going, Amy don’t send that letter to Sarah obviously, I’ll have to write another one. Or you will, sorry, I recorded this all in the same reel, hope it didn’t take you too long. What the fuck am I going to say?

Also, did you know about these stories ahead of time? You didn’t, did you? Had you heard anything? You better not have heard anything and not brought it directly to my attention, Amy I swear to God. From now on, read the papers first before you bring them to me. You’ll need to come in earlier for that.

How did they find out? There’s only two people in our office, and I sure as fuck didn’t say anything.

I need a drink. Amy, join me around 4. I’ve opened some bourbon. Knock first, though.

Season 1, Cassette #1: Stress, Shoulders

Within the Wires

Fiction podcast

Within the Wires is a dramatic anthologypodcast in the style of epistolary fiction. In the first season, the listener, a medical inmate at a place called the Institute, receives guidance from the mysterious narrator of instructional relaxation cassettes.[1][2][3][4][5] In the second season, an artist named Roimata Mangakāhia communicates with the listener through a series of museum audio guides.[6] The third season, “a political thriller set in 1950s Chicago”, is narrated by the bureaucrat Michael Witten; listeners access letters and notes dictated to his secretary.[7][8]

The series was created in 2016 by Jeffrey Cranor and Janina Matthewson (who also narrated the first season), and it has been published by Night Vale Presents since June 21, 2016.[9][4][10] During its run, the podcast typically airs on every other Wednesday. The first season ended on October 25, 2016; the second season premiered on September 5, 2017,[11][12][6]the third on September 4, 2018, the fourth on September 9, 2019, the fifth on August 25, 2020, and the sixth on October 12, 2021.[7]

Production[edit]

In an interview with CBC Radio's Podcast Playlist, Jeffrey Cranor explained that the initial idea behind the podcast was to use pre-existing audio guides as a template for storytelling, with the first season taking the form of a relaxation cassette program. Cranor had read and enjoyed Janina Matthewson's book "Of Things Gone Astray", and they first met when he messaged her on Twitter in Autumn 2015 inviting her to the live show for Welcome to Night Vale when it was touring through London. Cranor later pitched the initial idea to Matthewson and they began brainstorming story ideas together.[13] Episodes are outlined by both Cranor and Matthewson, before being written by one of them and then edited by the other.[14] All ten episodes of the first season were written by Cranor and Matthewson, with music by Mary Epworth. The first season was partially funded through sponsored advertising—a practice shared with other series under the Night Vale Presents banner such as Alice Isn't Dead and The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air).

With the release of the final episode of the first season, it was announced that those who donate $50 or more to the podcast would receive an exclusive prologue episode for the second season,[11][12] which was released on August 22, 2017.[15]

Episodes[edit]

Season 1: "Relaxation Cassettes"[edit]

Season 2: "Museum Audio Tours"[edit]

Prior to the season premiere, three trailers composed of preview segments from the season itself were released, on August 15, August 22, and August 29, 2017.[16] Donors of $50 or more to production of the second season received a special prologue episode, "Cassette 0: Karikari Contemporary (1969)", on August 22, 2017 with the release of the second trailer.[15] Every episode in this season features a guest star voicing the curator of the museum.

Season 3: "Dictation"[edit]

Season 4: "The Cradle"[edit]

Season 5: "Voicemail"[edit]

Bonus[edit]

Within the Wires' Patreon features an exclusive season called "Black Box," and is released four times a year, on solstices and equinoxes. The season tells the story of an unnamed pilot (narrated by Cranor), and his black box recordings.[17]

Live[edit]

Within the Wires' first live show was performed at Largo at the Coronet in Los Angeles, California on April 27, 2019.[18]

Reception[edit]

Marc Hershon of the Huffington Post positively reviewed the second episode, stating that it "has a distinctive flavor all its own" and that the show is "every bit as warped as [Welcome to Night Vale]."[2] Nathan Dorer of The Rensselaer Polytechnic positively reviewed the first season, finding that "the evolution of the podcast throughout the first season was borderline artful" and praising Matthewson's narration and the "effective" atmosphere of the podcast.[19] Steve Greene of IndieWire similarly praised the podcast as "an off-kilter delight" and observed that it was "something that can only exist in this medium."[20] Devon Taylor of The Sarahs observed that because the story is "parceled out slowly" it could "frustrate listeners accustomed to a more linear plot", while also drawing positive comparisons to Lost and the works of David Lynch.[14]
