Welcome to the Multiverse Blues, an audio science fiction serial! Episodes air every other week on the Alien Beer Podcast.
The world of The Multiverse Blues is any world, every world. Follow Jules Martin as they run away to join the crew of inter-dimensional rock/blues diva, Hope. Hope’s Tour jumps from one parallel ‘verse to another in the band’s massive tour bus. Each Arch portal they pass through brings a new world where some things are the same, and others are very different.
If you’re not careful, though, you might run into yourself.
