Our Editor's Take

The Last City podcast is for dystopian science fiction fans. The show may also appeal to those interested in climate change narratives. It tells the riveting story of the future world ravaged by climate catastrophes. Across two seasons, each dramatic episode follows the tale of Demetria Lopez's life in Pura, the last remaining flourishing city in a globe of ruin. What happens when she discovers the truth about the city's manufactured image?

The protagonist, Demetria Lopez, is Pura's dedicated public relations agent. Her job involves promoting Pura's utopian image. Demetria makes sure the outside world sees the city as a flawless sanctuary. The voice talent for the podcast includes Jeannie Tirado, Rhea Seehorn, Maury Sterling, and Skye Lourie. Each actor brings depth and emotion to this fictional saga.

Demetria uncovers an unsettling secret that threatens to shatter Pura's flawless facade. This revelation forces her to confront several moral dilemmas. Each episode of The Last City explores complex themes like destiny and secrecy. Many compromises happen in coming to terms with a world teetering on the brink of collapse.

The podcast unfolds over several episodes. Each describes different aspects of life in Pura and the challenges Demetria faces. "Have a Puran Day!" reveals Pura as a climate oasis but hints at the hidden complexities within its borders.

In "The Coming Storm," Demetria confronts her past when an unexpected visitor arrives. This visitor challenges her present responsibilities and loyalties.
