The Walk by Six To Start & Naomi Alderman

Walkthrough is a podcast and blog started by Julia Rios, Amal El-Mohtar, and Layla Al-Bedawi. On the podcast, we’re playing through and discussing The Walk by Six To Start, a phone app game where players unlock pieces of audio narrative by walking. Amal and Julia became long distance exercise partners through this game in 2014, and we wanted to celebrate that partnership with the world. Layla has never played the game before, so our discussions will feature one brand new player perspective.

On the blog, we also plan to discuss other exercises we’re trying and general things we’ve been flailing over (like Hamilton, Steven Universe, books, stories, and anything that makes us get star eyes).
