TWINEMIES podcast streaming now!

‘Twinemies’ – the cheesiest, gayest, and sappiest podcast of 2022, is a queer teen romcom musical. Produced through SYN Media’s Podcast Incubator Program and funded through the Community Broadcast Foundation, it stars fiercely intelligent and somewhat unhinged twins Darcy and Chloe who were thrust into the world’s eye from a young age by their politician mother. Constantly compared and scrutinized in frequent newspaper dissections, the twins have a long competitive streak and walls so thick they’ve pushed one another out of their lives. Now in their final semester of high school and ready to end their life-long competition, the two have devised a bucket list bet of high school activities based on the absolute pinnacles of cinema that are late 90s and early 00’s films like 10 Things I Hate About You. Filled with overused tropes and terrible jokes, ‘Twinemies’ is a story about the pressure to be perfect and have it all.

One day, ‘Twinemies’ will be changing lives on the musical stage, but for now, a short and spicy arc of the story has been produced in podcast form to test audience waters and prove that we do want some more queer, corny goodness in our lives. In 4 x 15min episodes and 6 heart wrenching songs, the podcast centres on the romcom aspect of the musical and follows Chloe, as she uncovers the identity of Vent boy, the boy she’s been speaking to through her dorm room vent, and Darcy as she moves from enemies-to-lovers with arrogant, but secretly sweet hearted Margo. Not to mention it’s filled with twin-centred shenanigans.

This short and sweet podcast arc from the bigger Twinemies story takes place at a raging house party, because this cheesy teen rom com loves it’s cliches. Across 4 episodes we meet our main characters Darcy and Chloe and learn of their intense competition. Meanwhile, Darcy struggles to figure out whether the intense emotions she’s feeling towards Margo are the years of jealousy from their childhood friendship bubbling up, or the much scarier option – love. Chloe, on the other hand, goes full on detective as she uses her popularity and network knowledge to uncover the identity of the mystery boy she’s been talking to through her dorm room vent.
