Blood Culture

Blood Culture is a five-part “biomedical thriller” audio drama series produced by Lance Dann. It concerns the adventures of A'isha, a young woman working at an ultra-modern tech company, and her efforts to discover why young employees are dying.

Explosive techno-thriller from Resonance 104.4FM. A'isha is just about holding down her job at the tech giant Meta before her old friend bursts in and accuses her boss of murder. She has to face up to what she has become, the lies that are woven in her past and the terrifying truth of what Meta are doing.

Blood Culture is a bio-medical thriller series which explores 21st century anxieties of the harvesting of personal data, exploitation of Millennial interns and the pervasiveness of corporate control in our everyday lives.

The series is a C21st whodunnit (or more of a “what is the evil corporation doing?”) that is told as a high-octane drama by a pair of uncompromising women. The story doesn't just exist in your ear buds - it blows out across the web in films, blogs, web-sites and interactive phone experience. Check through this site and you'll find links, phone numbers, films and audio that you can use to piece together the mystery of what Meta are doing to their workers.
