About Syntax


Syntax tells the story of Silas Caldwell, a linguist, who finds himself employed by VINCULA, a biotech company with an unearthly set of artifacts in their possession. Not least among them is the Breach, a large, spiraling tunnel which leads back to its singular entrance... or so it seems. Alongside a team of scientists and explorers, Silas plunges into the world beyond the Breach, and is touched by terrors beyond his wildest dreams.Syntax is the first audio fiction by Twin Strangers Productions, a US based production company creating original audio dramas in a post-Covid world. We specialize in horror stories and adventures with a focus on unique Foley and soundscaping while keeping interesting characters at the forefront.

CAST

Click Underlined Names for Actor Website


Ty Von (He/Him)

I'm Ty, and I write and voice act for Twin Strangers Productions, as one of two of the twins in the strangers originally. Rowan approached me late in 2021 and idly asked if I wanted to make a horror podcast. I've always enjoyed a bit of the spook and a dash of the dramatic, and saying yes got me in this mess here. Currently writing Syntax and providing the voice for Silas Caldwell. I despise long walks on the beach and listen to rain ambience while writing terrible things happening to our characters, and I'm loving every moment of it.

Beth Sage Phung (They/She)

Hello! My name is Beth (or Sage!) and when I’m not voicing Cassius, I’m working as a high school English teacher! I’m a Capricorn sun, Scorpio moon, and Leo rising. I’m 25 as of when I’m writing this little bio, and my pronouns are She/They! You’ll come to find Cassius and I are fairly similar (if you get Ko-Fi rewards, that is, wink wink). Other hobbies of mine include adding to my 460+ hours in The Sims 4 and spending what free time I have with my boyfriend and like, 1 friend I live near. Anyways, I hope that you enjoy the podcast!

Morgie Bee (Any)

Heyo! I’m Morgie – also known as Babi in the digital world – and I go by any pronouns! I’ve always had a knack for all things spooky along with a passion for entertainment, so naturally when the opportunity to voice act in Syntax arose, I was ecstatic! Before COVID hit and I sold my soul to the medical field, I was going to university to become a Sexologist! Since then I have decided to pursue my passions as a content creator, artist, and voice actor. If you like the energy I bring for Elizabeth in syntax or just simply want to hear my voice more feel free to hangout with me on twitch at https://m.twitch.tv/plaguebabi or TikTok @plaguebabi! I also created one of the official art pieces Syntax and run the official Syntax TikTok – @syntaxpod – as well as the Reddit at r/syntaxpod! I’m quite the funny guy – after all, I’m Ty and Rowan's favorite for a reason (hehe).

Jules Christine (She/They)

Hello! I’m Julie Christine from Florida, and I voice the little sister of the team, Alyx Yard! I graduated with an Associates in Science for musical theater and am looking more towards the voice acting realm. I was so excited when I heard about this podcast and getting a chance to voice act and see if it was something I would continue to be interested in. I enjoy playing video games, gardening, baking, cooking, singing, and spending time with my kitties. I’m super interested in horror/paranormal themes and true crime. I’ve enjoyed watching this podcast come to life and hope that others will fall in love with it just as the cast and crew have!

Cody Burke (He/Him)

Hi there. My name is Cody Burke, and I currently voice Greg Washburn on Syntax. I currently work for a cellphone company, but I’m an avid action figure/toy collector, and even co-host another podcast talking about the world of toys. I went to school for sculpting, and my life dream is becoming a toy creator, but voice acting is pretty cool for the time being. Hope you enjoy the world we’ve created for Syntax!

Elgin Smith (He/Him)

Hi! My name is Elgin. I’m 22 and I lend my voice to Jeremiah Woods – or J, as he’s better known as. I currently work at Home Depot, but I mostly like to game! I’m also a big Dungeons & Dragons nerd! My favorite class is fighter and I WILL fight you on it. This is my first time voice acting so I hope I can bring something new and exciting to the table to entertain you all!

Renee Helsel (She/Her)

Hello there! My name is Renee' and I am the voice of the sweet, but firm, June Dawson! Voice acting has always been a big dream of mine, and as a huge horror fan, when Syntax opened up I KNEW I had to be a part of it! June and I share a lot of the same thoughts and sentiments which makes getting into character super fun! As a Taurus, I’m a really friendly, laid back, go with the flow kind of person that likes to take care of the people I care about. Outside of Syntax, I have 4 feline fur babies – Loki, Runa, Emiko, and Selune – who I love dearly. I run my own small business called KitsuneForge where I hand craft various fursuit parts including paws, tails, and ear headbands! I’m a huge gamer and play a lot of action/adventure games. With horror being my favorite genre, I’m a huge Resident Evil fan. In my free time I like to draw a bit, often delving into fan art (I’m currently working on some for Syntax! Shhh)

Kaila Crockett (She/Her)

Hello all! I'm Kaila. but I go by either Kai, Kanani, or Nani – any will do! I grew up doing theater, so when Rowan asked if I was interested in trying voice acting, I couldn't decline. When I'm not voicing the lovely Miss Vaux, I'm busy being a stay at home mother for my three year old and streaming over on twitch. I enjoy doing artwork and trying out a variety of games, with the occasional reading (when I have time). Feel free to stop by and visit at twitch.tv/kananidino!

Joe Cliff Thompson (He/Him)

Hello! My name is Joe Cliff Thompson, and I am the voice of Agent Steve Beckett. I am a professional screen and voice actor based in Los Angeles. You can hear my voice in many audio productions over the last ten years— most recently in the Game Awards-nominated multi-platform indie game The Forgotten City as Al Worth, as the voice of popular animated SCP YouTuber Dr. Bob, and in the upcoming remake of the cult classic horror PC game System Shock.
In my free time, you can also find me streaming video games on Twitch under the handle Thunder_Sauce, writing, editing, and composing music for fun.
I’m overjoyed to join the fantastically talented cast of Syntax for Season 2, and I already know you’re going to love what we have in store for you!

M. Molder (They/Them)

Hiya, I’m M. Molder, sometimes known as Momo. I voice a spooky, mysterious character with questionable motives in Syntax. During the day, I make things pretty, functional, and accessible with code. Outside of that, I fixate on sound design, voice acting, and writing, all of which go into my own show (The Moon Crown.) Most of my time goes to researching each of those things, and I've read/watched far too many articles and/or video essays on all of the above, with a special interest in what makes things scary.

Saph the Something (Xae/Xem)

Saph the Something coming in loud and clear, command! My pronouns are xae/xem (pronounced zey/zem) and I am a non-binary and queer disabled writer, actor, and all around enjoyer of audio dramas. I consider myself a multimedia artist between my own podcast projects (The Supernatural Protection Company and KILL FM), my sustainable genderless clothing shop, and my other endless artistic pursuits. With the support of my fluffy cat Friday, I’m taking life one day at a time and trying to make the most I can with it. 💜

Derrick Valen (He/Him)

Hi, I'm Derrick Valen. A New England creator currently based in "Old" England.
Find my other voicework in The Moon Crown, The Mercury Theater Podcast, KILL-FM, Black Box, and The Shadows At The Door.
I'm also the producer of October's Children (a New England horror audiodrama) and help make KILL-FM, A Dog Ate My Book Report, and Storm Runner: A. Sci Fi Odessy.

CREW


Stella "Rowan" Odom (She/Her)

Hey there! I’m Rowan (legally known as Stella), the founder and producer of Twin Strangers Productions (as one of two of the twins in the strangers originally), as well as the creator and editor for Syntax! I started this project with the mindset of bringing an interesting, horrific audio drama into the world with the help of all the incredible people you see on this page – I particularly enjoy dragging unwilling victims into my schemes of grandeur. When I’m not working on Syntax, I enjoy (lovingly) torturing my two cats (one who stars as Silas’s kitty, Vox!), playing an expanse of video games, and watching anime. I can’t wait to show y’all what’s in store!

Gage Odom (He/Him)

Hello, my name is Gage. I'm here to support the producers with SFX work, monster sounds, extra characters, and whatever else they need. You’ll notice that Rowan is my younger sister, who does a great job of annoying me when she’s not doing this. All I do is work in a pharmacy and play video games of all kinds. Look for me on Twitch, Steam, and other services as T3chBug.

Anthony Crockett (He/Him)

Hi! My name is Anthony, and I’m the artist for Syntax. I created the cover art and will be working with the creators to produce more art in the future. I’m married to Kaila, who voices Miss Vaux, and love spending time with her and our three year old son. I enjoy doing many mediums of art, but my favorite is working with scratchboards. When I’m not working or doing artwork, I enjoy reading, building things, or playing video games – my favorite being Terraria, or any of the FromSoft games. I hope you enjoy the art and the podcast itself!
