Tribeca Audio Premieres has another interview on deck for your listening pleasure!
This week we have special guests Ayeesha Menon and John Scott Dryden, the award-winning creators of PRX/Radiotopia’s Mumbai Crime, a curated series of audio fiction podcasts featuring engrossing thrillers, crime stories, and dramatic mysteries.
Season One of Mumbai Crime is titled Q&A, an immersive ten-part adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name by Vikas Swarup. It tells the rags to riches story of a young man competing as a quiz show contestant. He becomes the biggest winner in history, only to be detained and tortured by officials accusing him of cheating.
Sounds familiar, right? That’s because Swarup’s novel was the inspiration behind the Oscar winning film, Slumdog Millionaire.
Recorded immersively on the streets of Mumbai, India, Mumbai Crime will transport you to the densely populated financial center, capturing the bustling, humid atmosphere of India’s largest city.
