about the creators
Brothers Adam and Bob Raymonda first talked about creating a serialized science-fiction audio drama in 2015 when they were collaborating on the podcast Breadcrumbs. Bob is a writer and editor and crafted the first draft of Windfall’s 10-episode season between August 2016 and January 2017, which Adam would later sound design and score. Realizing the project would only improve by the addition of another voice, Christie Donato was added to the team. Christie and Bob knew each other from their time in the Creative Writing program at SUNY Purchase College. Christie’s deep knowledge of mythology helped in rewriting and reshaping Windfall into what it has become today.
The first three scripts of Windfall were recognized as Second Rounders in the inaugural Austin Film Festival Fiction Podcast Writing competition in 2017. Here, Christie and Bob attended workshops with professionals working in the field, including Lauren Shippen of The Bright Sessions, Kc Wayland of We’re Alive, and Skip Bronkie and Zack Akers of Limetown and 36 Questions.
Using the knowledge gained from their time at AFF, Christie, Bob, and Adam self-produced Windfall in 2018 at Christie’s home in Syracuse, New York. At the same time, they founded Rogue Dialogue, a production company focused on creating richly sound-designed podcasts in multiple genres. In addition to the second season of Windfall, the group is currently hard at work developing more shows.
