ADRENALINE is a collection of Realm’s most riveting thrillers, introduced by host Neil Hellegers.
Every month, a new audio series will bring you to the edge of your seat — and keep you there. With episodes dropping twice a week, you’ll never be without something to keep the adrenaline flowing.

Whether you’re uncovering the secret of disappearing ships in the Bermuda Triangle, or in the race of your life against time and your evil doppelgänger, you may want to watch your back, as things are not always as they seem. The suspense and excitement of ADRENALINE will show that fight or flight are not the only options in the face of danger. Sometimes you just need to keep listening…

This month, we are featuring a story called Greetings From Salton Sea, a mind-bending, brain-twisting journey from the writer of the #1 Podcast OUTLIERS.

Travel into the depths of traumatized memory and the underbelly of a dying California desert town where all the odd-ball inhabitants have something disturbing to hide. When a boy’s shinbone is discovered in Kellan Rucker’s hometown of Salton Sea, Kellan returns to claim what he believes are the remains of his twin brother who vanished nearly twenty years ago when the boys were twelve. The grim discovery triggers Kellan; he loses his battle to stay sober as he struggles to maintain his tenuous hold on reality while he navigates the bizarre environs of the toxic-lake town and its funhouse of eccentric characters to uncover the truth about what really happened to his twin all those years ago.
