What Is Distinct Poplar?

Distinct Poplar is an audio fiction podcast series and short story collection about a magical modern city of dark fantasy and the people who struggle to live there. Twice a month, the Distinct Poplar podcast releases a new episode featuring a brief glimpse into the lives of one of it’s citizens and the strange and sinister things lurking just around the corner, waiting to be found.

Every episode of our podcast is part of a series, which starts with a single idea and grows organically with each successive story. Ideas like; a cat that eats laughter, an evil storm that devours whole neighborhoods, and a magical toy turtle covered in life altering gunk.

As a whole world organically formed right here on the website, Distinct Poplar is a place constantly unveiling new and strange features to explore, characters to meet, and sinister creatures to uncover.
