The Hauntening

Travel through the bad gateway in this modern ghost story as writer and performer Tom Neenan discovers what horrors lurk in our apps and gadgets. In this episode – hang on, let me just put you on hold... Modern technology is terrifying. The average smartphone carries out 3.36 billion instructions per second. The average person can only carry out one instruction in that time. Stop and think about that for a second. Sorry, that’s two instructions - you won’t be able to do that. But what if modern technology was literally terrifying? What if there really was a ghost in the machine? Cast Tom ..... Tom Neenan Heidi ..... Jenny Bede The Operators .....
