Season 1 is available for download now – it is a year-long tale of love, identity and long-distance friendship set in two timelines and on opposite sides of the world. The story revolves around two friends in the year 2000, and the modern-day student who turns their voicemails into a podcast.

Season 2 releases monthly throughout 2021. Every episode centers on one of the 12 main characters from season 1, and takes place in a different city and a different year.
