Limited Capacity Introduces: Let’s Make A Rom-Com
The hosts of Let’s Make A Sci-Fi, one of The New Yorker’s “Best Podcasts of 2022”, are back in their writers’ room and this time they’re getting serious about love. Over eight episodes, Maddy, Mark, and Ryan try to balance love and laughs into a fresh, funny, and heart-felt movie script. When they run into trouble, they’ll have help from Hollywood experts, including rom-com screenwriting royalty Kirsten Smith (Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You), blockbuster director Ol Parker (Ticket to Paradise, Mama Mia II), comedian Phoebe Robinson (2 Dope Queens), as well as agents and actors, to reveal how we bring love to the big screen. And in the final episode, they’ll pitch their original romantic comedy and see if sparks fly. More episodes are available at: https://link.chtbl.com/RjdurxQ8
For celebrities looking for love, regular online dating apps aren’t really an option. That’s why authors, actors and artists are flocking to Bala, the exclusive dating app for the creative elite. Bala is a place for celebrities to feel normal, relax and find their true soulmate. When struggling actor Lizzie Miller gets an invite to try it out, she finds something much more insidious than love.
He Who Boils Rivers with a Look
The app NextDoor creates online communities based on user postal codes. When roleplayer “Connor” stumbles across an imaginary town (with an unassigned postal code), he finds what he’s been missing in real life: a close family that supports and accepts him. But despite the community’s willingness to stay hyper positive, real world disorder creeps in and threatens the boundaries of this fragile, make-believe world.
Better Fitter Roger-er
“Real” patients. “Real” trauma. “Real” therapy. Each week therapist and podcast host Lucetta Davis takes you inside a session with one of her clients. One of them, Roger, just got dumped by his girlfriend – who’s also his boss. He’s tired of being walked all over. In this episode, Roger shares some news with Dr. Davis: he’s signed up for a second therapy podcast – one that also comes with a self-help app.
Kill the Chicken
Ronnie Wells walked away from a very successful voiceover career to create an educational cartoon called Polo The Chicken. Just as his new YouTube channel starts to take off, the alt-right starts to appropriate Polo’s likeness to spread hate. Online activists strike back and Ronnie finds himself a pawn in an all-out meme war.
Limited Capacity is a collection of six short stories about the strange and twisted ways we interact with the internet, and with each other. Punctuated with dark humour and surprising twists, each episode blurs the lines between horror, thriller, mockumentary and satire. The stories take on digital appropriation, toxic positivity, a self-help podcast for people who hate self-help and a talking chicken. Each immersive episode is packed with intimate and jarring stories that are both completely familiar and somehow confoundingly alien. It’s like Black Mirror for your ears. From the fiendishly clever mind of Rob Norman, co-creator of the hit podcast Personal Best.
