We don't fit in their spaces.
So we've made our own.


Law of Names Media is a collective of audio entertainment programs that came together without a great deal of conscious volition.What was one podcast primarily under one director, became two, became four, became a half-dozen projects, with multiple originators and contributors. Our projects are volunteer-driven, and made available, ad-free, for all listeners.We create the works we want to see, and the worlds we want to explore. We fill them with people who represent us and our communities.From cricket farmers on Mercury, to OSHA inspectors touring haunted houses, to teenage filmmakers in small-town Northern California, our show tell stories of human experiences, and all the shapes they take.

Comments from our Cast & Crew

Working on Breathing Space


About the Show
Breathing Space is an anthology show with seasons of ~13 episodes, created and produced by Ash Seguinte & Scott Paladin. It is recorded concurrently as much as possible, with actors asked to do independent recordings either for solo scenes, or if schedule just can't be arranged. The cast for each episode in each season is different, though actors are encouraged to audition for multiple parts over multiple seasons.

"...Good, fun, well-organized. Behind the scenes, a great community of people who will casually drop an exquisitely detailed 3D render of the concept of heartbreak or a beautifully stylized scene from an episode in chat like "work was slow today, drew this on a napkin." Truly incredible, couldn't ask for better. "
- Kale Brown, actor/editor, season 2


"Incredibly welcoming and enthusiastic creative environment, and very smoothly run on the production side! Easy and quick communication with showrunners, well organized Discord server, all around great experience. "
- Kasha Mika, actor, season 2


"It's been very welcoming, encouraging, and active. Being in and a part of the BSFF server has certainly set the bar for my interactions in other podcast servers i'm in."
- Kris Allison, actor, seasons 1 & 2


Working on Translating Arcadia


About the Show
Translating Arcadia is an audio fiction podcast created & produced by Ash Seguinte. It is made up of short stories recorded independently by narrators.

"I had a lot of fun exploring the uniqueness of a narrated piece, after only having worked alongside other actors. It was a great way to explore how I could think about and approach a piece before director input, then see what changes I could make after feedback. I also just loved working with pieces that flowed in such a spellbinding way.Translating Arcadia was firstly an exercise in solo artistic interpretation, which was really interesting. We were a group of writers and/or voice actors working on the different but related field of narrated short audio stories. I think the result is a fascinating blend between acting and reading aloud slightly different than either."
- Rebecca Krause, narrator, Containment

About Law of Names

What


To know the true and complete name of something is to be able to control it.Law of Names Media is a collection of projects that were each made with intention, but came together organically, and without a great deal of conscious volition. What was one podcast primarily under one director, became two, became four, became a half-dozen projects, with multiple originators and contributors.Now, we are a group of people who work together, and toward similar goals. Though the projects are different, every creator here pushes themselves to create work that makes the world better, for its existence.We are here to tell stories. And stories should be just as strange, and wild, and diverse, and beautiful, as the people who tell them.

Why


Law of Names was created initially out of spite.They said we couldn't. So we did.The spite returns from time to time, but the best revenge remains to succeed.And so we are.We create the works we want to see, and the worlds we want to explore. We fill them with people who represent us and our communities.

Who


Ash was the first person who fell under the banner of Law of Names, & he continues to organize, maintain, and generally herd cats for the now-expanded entity that is LoN Media.He's fairly sure he isn’t a changeling, but wouldn’t tell you if he were.He grew up thinking librarians were basically the coolest people in the world, and that the primary rule of hiking is that you never take the same trail on the way back.He loves tattoos, and honey, and pomegranates, and glitter, and realizes that he often sounds like a hipster despite his best intentions.He has spent the majority of his creative life trying to recreate The NeverEnding Story and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie (1990).He lives in Sacramento, California in a Freehold with his husband, another debatably Arcadian, five cats with lofty names, a dog called Ivysaur, and cages full of creepy dolls.For more about his personal work, check out his digital portfolio.If you want to talk to him, you can email him or message him on Discord as _knightofcups
