art of a pale girl with long brown hair. her face is covered by scribbling. along the top reads "Weaver" in bold red font.

Lorna has been in this house for a long time. Maybe forever. She remembers nothing from before, only a name that she's turned into a god, into her own private religion. But when two newcomers arrive, Lorna must break free from her desolate state to make herself known to them.

Weaver is a new fiction podcast about loneliness, understanding, and the threads that connect them, currently releasing its first season.
