A thrilling sci-fi, supernatural mystery set just off the coast of the United States, “The Triangle” is bringing the Bermuda Triangle conspiracies to a whole new level. A fictional thriller, this podcast follows the disappearance of multiple ships and planes in the ever-mysterious region of the Atlantic.
“The Triangle” opens up inside the cockpit of a small private plane flying just under radar tracking at around 4,000 feet. It’s headed due west from the Bahamas. In it is a lone pilot smuggling contraband to the mainland U.S. It’s a clear sky, and the U.S. Coast Guard is nowhere to be seen; after all, they are conducting hurricane rescue efforts from the most recent storm to batter the coast. The planes’ engines start to sputter, the pilot recognizing it as an effect from dirty fuel. As he calls out his mayday on the radio (as he’d rather risk jail time than drowning), he sees an island alight just north. He tries to give a location to air traffic control, but his GPS and compass are out. He crashes into the sea, a short ways from the strange glowing island.
From there, we are introduced to our cast of characters. There’s Tessa Dumont, an NTSB investigator who works best with little noise and little human interaction. Then, there’s Michael Hammond, a data recovery expert who happens to have beef with the NTSB due to a dead wide. There’s Alistair McBride, a contentious author, conspiracy theorist, and proclaimed expert on the Triangle. And, of course, Admiral David Segarra, for whom this whole Bermuda Triangle thing has just gotten personal.
“The Triangle” follows this task force as they search for Segarra’s former ship, the USS Wasp, that has gone missing without a trace within the Bermuda Triangle. The disappearance of this state-of-the-art amphibious assault vessel is just one of the recent strange occurrences in the area. While Admiral Segarra is no believer in the Triangle’s supposed curse, the storms, disappearances and other phenomena are enough cause for his own personal investigation. When the team ends up shipwrecked on an island not on any of their maps, they discover they are not alone and in grave danger.
Captivating, creepy, and entertaining, “The Triangle” is inspired by the works of Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park and Westworld. A LOST meets X Files plot, this podcast is Triangle lore done right. With enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end, you’ll be grateful for the amount of hours you can get out of this podcast. Get ready for the goosebumps and let Realm productions take you on ride into the chilling territory of “The Triangle.”
