On the eve of Halloween, nine storytellers make their way to an abandoned asylum to share their terrifying truths about the darkness that exists around them.

Ep. 10: "Don't Look Back Again, Dummy" (Part 2 of 2)
Warning: This episode is violent. It may not be suitable for young children or the faint of heart. The time has arrived to bring Season One to a close and what better way than by the gnashing of teeth and spilling of blood? No need to answer that. It's a family affair. We rejoin father and son in Seneca Park for Part 2 of 2. This is the season finale. And in it, we learn some shocking details about Kirby's past. Thornton tells all. You might not believe your ears. Support the resistance rebels by subscribing, rating, and reviewing our show. Share it with a like-minded soul. Every little bit helps! We need the momentum only you can contribute to power into Season Two. So much more is planned in our tale from the urban cyber hellscape that is Neo Amsterdam. You won't want to miss one iota. Patreon. Join forces with us if you can help out. It truly benefits everyone. And so, we give special thanks to the _Lord_ – our first patron, Lord_Entropy, as well as: Izza, Manji, What-A-Rush Collins, Bliquer, DJ L.E.L., Çamster & Bob for joining our resistance legion on Patreon.

Ep. 09: "Don't Look Back" (Part 1 of 2)
Strap on your Dream-Streamer headset, hell-hacker. You're entering part 1 of a two-part season finale that will launch the show in a new direction — a serial story arc for Season 02, about which we are very excited. Join father and son Thornton and Kirby Bevins for a walk in the park. It ain't a walk in the park, if you know what I mean. Thornton reveals a shocking secret about Kirby's past. Kirby doesn't believe it. Some confessions are just too wild to be accepted. Will he take Dad seriously, or is ol' Thornton too sick to think straight? At least one thing is certain. After this, everything changes. Don't feed the abandoned zoo animals. And look out for demon beasts while you're in the woods. Maybe it's polar bears? Whatever it is, something's stalking Neo Amsterdenizens, and it's not nice. So if you're down for a rough ride through Hell Gate City, jack into your cyber-deck right quick. Soak up the data stream before Ascension goes bats**t and vacuums us into the sky. Bevins out. IMPORTANT: We appreciate every listener. We thank you for sticking with us. And we humbly beg you to like, rate, review, and follow our show – hold up a lantern for others in the darkness. Of course, not everyone can afford to support, but join forces with us if you can help out. It truly benefits everyone. And so, we give special thanks to the Lord_ – our first patron Lord_Entropy, as well as: Izza, Manji, What-A-Rush Collins, Ben-Yeezy, Bliquer, DJ L.E.L., Çamster & Bob for joining our resistance legion on Patreon.

Ep: 08: "Destroy Before Listening"
Love is a noun, a nickname, a type of shack, a god, an emotion, a verb, and a score of zero in cyber-tennis (how’d they arrive at that one?). All things are not what they seem. I, Kirby, look slightly fatter than last week. Yet, my bloat is just a bellyful of apologies for the delay of this episode. As you'll see with your ears, we got our boat rocked in the making of it. What's in this episode? Hypothetically, your partner has their central nervous system threaded into an entirely new body – what would that entail? Let's just say a lot. Even in Neo Amsterdam, bodies don't grow on trees. When a body pops up, and the city council doesn't quite know what to do with it, circuits fry. Turns out there's a lot of insensitive folks out there trying to put us in a box. They try to define us. And if we resist, they may try to confine us. Pray it ain't solitary cyber-confinement. That smarts. I hope that clears it up! Oddly, this show is brought to you by S.T.U.A.R.T., Streaming Terms of Use Across All Registered Trans-media. That's the blanket license every listener automatically agrees to in Neo Amsterdam. Know when you click "I Agree" before using an app? That's it. You have unwittingly signed a contract with a heap of shadowy mega conglomerates. Many of you do not know what that contract entails. S.T.U.A.R.T. requires us to listen to all corporate messaging. What if we don't? Will they get us?? Just play the dang episode. Anyhoo, if you have skipped an ad lately and are worried about repercussions, listen closely and stay on guard for the oncoming BUSS (this, too, will make sense). Bevins out. IMPORTANT: We give thanks first and foremost to the Lord, our first patron Lord_Entropy, as well as: Isa, xManjix, What-A-Rush Collins, Ben-Yeezy, Bliquer, DJ L.E.L., Çamster & Bob for joining the resistance on Patreon.

Ep. 07: "The Cyber-Purge"
It’s the third month of the year, so you know what that means. The Governing Authority Group’s (GAG) annual Cyber-Purge is upon us. Watch your partners and your pets. I know I did. If you’ve seen a dusky blue teacup poodle, caged or otherwise, please alert the station. It’s been a tough year all-around and to think, we kicked off the Kraken-virus plague during last year’s Cyber-Purge without even knowing it. Many a cyborg fell to a dweller’s knife that day. All that, only for the poor under-tunnel dweller and her family to fall ill to the Kraken by week’s end. Unbelievable. If you’re cyber-enhanced, look out, cybo. If you’re a normal organic person, be on your guard, orgo. And, please, let’s all honor our pledges to the nannies and mannies who’ve stayed home to guard progeny during this trying time. One badass way to do that is to join our club. First, it’s decidedly pro-nanny. Second, it’s chock-full o’ special benefits for members who are down for the cause. Lastly, it’s easy and practically painless to be a patron and help us keep making the show. Where's the secret clubhouse?

Ep. 06: "Radio Apeshot"
Dream a little dream with me, Kirby Bevins. Join us as we go hip deep into my psyche and, girl, it gets messy. Total radio apeshot. If you thought you knew ol’ Kirb up until now, think again. One Cyber Lucidity plunge and you’ll be swimming in a sea of intrigue, dark figures, and dangerous encounters. That’s all before we tune in to the return of cyber-fan favorite, Dendricks' Corner, brought to you by Meg’s List. You heard me right. All lies therein. You’ll find the truth shivering next to a frigid Sex Bot, as per yoozsh. Every time you tune in it fills us with gratitude and nutrient-rich chemicals. Subscribe like your life depends on it. I wouldn’t know anything about that, but better safe than sorry. Yeparoonie! If you like the show and want us to keep making it, we welcome your patronage.

Ep. 05: "Psycho Helmets On"
Strap on your psycho helmet. It's going to be a bumpy ride. A new audio production team has formed to take Amsterdenizens to a higher plane – no, not Ascension. Host Kirby Bevins walks listeners through the slushy sludge of Manahatta Isle and into the depths of cult role-playing game sensation XYnon, a crime against the Church of Natas by two pyromaniacs (could it be the Pyro Bros?), and more. Stay inquisitive. Stay vigilant. And stay the execution of Boccaccio’s enemies! If you like the show and want us to keep making it, we welcome your patronage.

Ep. 04: "Hot Metal Dobermans"
Dear hell-hackers: I, Kirby Bevins, apologize for the delay of "Hot Metal Dobermans". I also blame Mayor Boccaccio's Blackguard Cyber-Squad. They intercepted Episode 04 through a sidewall. Do not be alarmed! We circumvented the fire-block. Hang tight and stay vigilant. Be ready for the new microchipped vaccine – it packs a secret punch. Speaking of secrets, guess our guest today and you could win tickets to see the Vapor Games. Also, we feature a world exclusive note from Qwerty Ping, noted domestic terrorist-cum-interim Congressional Speaker. Also, just listen. It's going to be a digi-doozy. -Kirby If you like the show and want us to keep making it, we welcome your patronage. Hop aboard our Patreon at http://bit.ly/hgcc-patron.

Ep. 03: "The Hangman's Hangnail"
Kirby revisits President Gorp’s alleged cyber-coup last week. Who helped it? How? What happened? Why? It came to a head, actually about 15 heads. They rolled off several Centurian Cenators and a slew of Representatives unlucky enough to be caught in the melee. Host Bevins remains undaunted even as the F.I.B. and pint-sized hate machines pursue him for crimes he swears he never even computed. Rumors of Alby, the man-eating albino alligator in Old Haarlem develop into something sinister. And a surprising revelation about the "Weatherby's Wīnd-back" radio drama series casts a pall on the franchise. Do not wander aimlessly in Mini-Italy as a known culprit’s violent apprehension looms imminent. Brought to you by C.A.M.M.iE.

Ep. 01: "Pilot"
Have you heard the previous episode? Start with Ep. 0: "Cypher" - https://anchor.fm/berrey/episodes/Ep--0-Cypher-e1k6sqq A radio DJ gets stuck in a dystopian cyberpunk hellhole version of NYC. He live-streams his dreams and repressed memories for ratings. All hell breaks loose. In Detail On the surface, Hell Gate City is an audio drama offered in the style of a community radio show for the town of Neo Amsterdam, aka Hell Gate City. But as host Kirby Bevins plumbs his unconscious mind using the Cyber Lucidity Dream-streamer, he encounters something sinister. The truth he uncovers upends his and his partner Lonni's lives, threatening their very existence. And the governing authorities feel it’s not radio-friendly. Will he pick up the thread and follow it into the unknown, or stick with the program? If you like the show and want us to keep making it, we welcome your patronage. Please hop aboard our Patreon at http://bit.ly/hgcc-patron Thank you for supporting funny sci-fi that doesn't suck.
