About The Show
RedWing: The Audio Drama Podcast is the story of Jordan Redfield-Wade, a queer, Black private investigator and philanthropist, living in New Ark City (an alternate history version of our world’s Boston). By day, he used his resources to better the lives of the citizens. By night, he protects the city as a vigilante superhero known as RedWing. Charged by the last words of his deceased parents, and with the help of his friends, he hunts down criminals, evildoers, and anyone who would harm his beloved city. RedWing is a new take on the classic superhero story about responsibility, ancestry, family, love and consequences.
RedWing is a show with a full cast and is narrated by Jordan. Season 1: Origin has 10 Episodes. Season 2: Guardian has 12 episodes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will I like RedWing?
I certainly hope so! The tone of RedWing is similar to the live action superhero shows you might find on the CW, such as The Flash, Supergirl, Jessica Jones and Arrow. If you like those shows, as well as shows like Charmed, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Veronica Mars, and iZombie, you will enjoy RedWing.
What is the age Age rating + Content type for RedWing?
While most people think all superhero stories are automatically appropriate for children, caution is needed. Like most comic books, the themes explored can at times be heavy and dark. The language in RedWing is solidly PG-13, and there is mention of the occurrence of sex. There is death, human trafficking, criminal behavior, as well as mention of assault and abuse. These themes are not exceedingly graphic, but they do occur in the story and may provoke questions from younger listeners.
Will there be content and trigger Warnings?
Of course! We care about the comfort and safety of our wonderful listeners. Individual trigger warnings for sexual assault and abuse will be listed in the shownotes, along with links to real life resources, for the relevant episodes. For Season 1, it is primarily just Episode 9. If you think we have missed any, please let us know at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Season 2 Transcripts are available and will be posted at the same time as the episode. We are currently working on getting the Season 1 transcripts for everyone, and we hope to have those soon. :)
