First up, a brand new season of the provocative scripted podcast “The Control Group.” After a mental ward doctor develops an experimental and controversial new form of mental cleansing in season one, the new seven-episode season of “The Control Group” starts with a bang. As airwaves are filled with an imminent nuclear attack on the U.S., housewife Dorrie Langford (Tess Malis Kincaid) tries to protect her daughter (Allie Ficken) from both the atomic and human dangers that surround them. Intertwined with Dorrie’s struggle to survive the radioactive fallout are fragments of an animated children’s television program called Quasar-1 that pose an eerie similarity to the events unfolding in the real-life world of “The Control Group.” Can Dorrie and her family escape the chaos? Find out by listening to “The Control Group” season two now. All seven episodes are now available to stream on iHeartRadio!
