The Game Of Lies

Would you risk your life in a deadly game of chance if winning meant riches beyond your wildest dreams? What if your future depended on lying your way into a high-stakes gambling tournament deep in the desert?

This Week, Tom rolls Will a 12-sided Dice and we tell the story of Jacqueline Du Mort, a professional gambler on the run, who gets roped into a dangerous heist in a secret casino beneath the Arabian desert. She gets tangled up in an international conspiracy, faces enemies on both sides and is forced to confront her own loyalties.

The Killing Cure: The Jerusalem Brawl

What could stop internet trolling? What if anyone could challenge you to a fight to the death? Would you censor yourself online if your words could lead to blood?

Join us for the futuristic story of Mickey Danver, an Aussie internet troll, challenged by a snarky Scottish comedian to deadly combat in the Jerusalem Brawl. Will indulges Tom in bloodsport, modern gladiators and social engineering, seeded by a pair of Muay Thai sparring gloves.

The World Labyrinth

What if there was a world where everyone lived underground? What kind of people would they be? What culture, religion and politics would exist on the shores of their vast subterranean seas?

Join us as Tom takes Will on a fantastical journey which bursts from the blank pages of a leather-bound book. We test our imagination, creating an epic fantasy in an entirely new world.

Diamonds Without Borders

What if you uncovered a terrible family secret? What if an eccentric relative launched you on a mysterious adventure around the world? Would you stop to question why?

This week, Will and Tom jet off on an adventure when Will flashes his leather-bound passport. We use it to tell the story of Menzies Wainwright who, after inheriting his grandfather's fortune, embarks on a globe-trotting voyage, unearthing his family's dark past.

Episode 4: Donny Diamond & The Roughs

In the fourth episode of The Speculation Station Podcast, Will entices Tom with promises of riches (and a modest diamond).

They muse upon the decadence of caviar, the artificial rarity of diamonds and why a pirate buries his treasure rather than spending it.

And no, you can’t have the diamond.
