Storytelling Podcasts >

Want U Back is the soft-spoken child of long distance best friends, Nora Lee and Ana Richards. They are collaborating on this project from February 13 until May 24, the anniversary of departure and date of reunion, respectively. This podcast is being recorded in Pittsburgh and Santa Monica. Ana moved back west to California indefinitely and left Nora stranded in Pennsylvania, with no food or shelter; it’s okay though, she’s not bitter. They will see each other soon, over and over again because they love each very much and they firmly believe they will honor their death pact someday, however naïve it may be to think so.
