Upon its initial launch, this podcast was chosen by iTunes to receive featured placement in iTunes’ highly coveted “New & Noteworthy” section. The first three episodes are now available on iTunes and ThisIsRage.com. “This Is Rage” is presented by Story Plant Media.
iTunes reviews currently rate the podcast 5 out of 5 stars and has been receiving rave reviews. “For those of you missing the excitement of radio drama, look no further. This brings the best of Ken Goldstein’s thrilling book into a new medium in a very successful way.” This “engaging and thought provoking” podcast series is “a riveting well-acted taste of the novel. It really soars, fabulously acted.”
“This is a story that puts a microscope on income inequality, the excesses of big business, and social revolution. Readers of the book have been picking up on this in social media, and we thought it was critical that we bring this story to a new medium right now,” shares executive producer Lou Aronica.
“This Is Rage” is the story of what happens when you shine a light on the system that allows the rich to become the super-rich and the super-rich to get their own zip codes. When a pair of CEOs is held for ransom by coders-turned kidnappers, Silicon Valley is thrown into chaos. But two people are unwilling to stay silent: the has-been radio shock-jock Kimo Balthazar and top executive Silvia Normandy. This is their story. This is rage.
Ken Goldstein’s book, This Is Rage: A Novel of Silicon Valley and Other Madness, can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble Online, iBooks, Kobo, IndieBound, and Indigo. Author Ken Goldstein states, “Not a day goes by when I don’t hear from a reader that ‘This Is Rage’ gives voice to their frustrations. With this new presentation of the material, we want to take the conversation to the widest possible audience.”
“This Is Rage” is a production of Story Plant Podcasts, adapted by Ken Goldstein and Lou Aronica, directed by Mitchell Maxwell, produced by Monty Hobbs in association with Eighth Day Productions. Post production service was provided by Digital Garden Media. Mitchell Maxwell and Lou Aronica served as Executive Producers.
