AUDIO DRAMA FICTION PODCAST
YOUNG'S INFINITE CITY
Created by Alex Dolan, produced by Alex Dolan and Audiohm Media, and distributed by Realm Media, YOUNG’S INFINITE CITY is a full-cast science fiction audio drama set in the near-apocalypse.
Rosalind Young is the most influential person on the planet. And she’s just gone missing.
In the middle of the Pacific Ocean, warships from seven countries surround a giant white mass floating in the water. To us, it might look like a marshmallow the size of a small island. A few decades from now, people will recognize it as M3, the most valuable substance on the planet, a sponge that provides drinking water for hundreds of millions of people a year. People kill for it. Countries might go to war for it.
As the inventor of M3, Dr. Rosalind Young is the wealthiest person alive and the founder of Natural Law, the world’s largest corporation. She might be the one person who can diffuse the standoff, but no one can find her, including her wife and business partner, Grace Adamu.
To prevent a panic, Grace has kept Rosalind’s disappearance private. Because Grace also knows something she keeps to herself – Rosalind Young is mentally unstable.
With her success, Rosalind Young has gone from eccentric to paranoid, even delusional. Rosalind believes she might have killed as many people as she’s saved. Her invention boosted the global water supply but also unleashed untold havoc and violence, and she believes she’s haunted by her victims. Some nights, she runs through her home and shoots at ghosts in the shadows. She’s spent billions on a passion project called the Infinite City, a walled city in rural Maine where construction never ends. Almost no one knows what’s in there, not even Grace. But if Rosalind Young hasn’t been killed or kidnapped, Grace is fairly certain where she’ll be.
So when Rosalind Young disappears, Grace needs to search for her discretely, and seeks the help of the only other person who knows her wife as well as she does – Rosalind’s estranged son, Charles Davis. To stop a war, they will search for her in the City that might finally be forced to reveal its secrets.

M3 – Short for Megasorbent 3, a chemical compound invented by Rosalind Young that can absorb massive amounts of liquid. It is mounted on the back of a “water barge,” a ship roughly six times the size of today’s aircraft carrier, and piloted out into storms in the middle of the ocean to collect rain water. Providing drinking water for hundreds of millions of people a year, M3 is considered the most valuable substance on Earth.
