#HUSHpodcast, affectionately known as “HUSH,” follows a teenage girl named Andy whose parents and then grandmother mysteriously disappear. Andy and her friends set off to search for them on a quest that leads into multiple worlds filled with dangerous secrets and manipulative people. An original Shire production, HUSH is a sci-fi series written, performed and produced by teenagers from the St. Croix River Valley. Students write the script, create the sound effects, compose the music, act in the roles, design the artwork and mix the final show. A new episode of HUSH releases once a month, alternating with student interviews of radio, film, television and music professionals on how to craft excellent stories.
