Crypto-Z is an audio series collaboration between Danielle Trussoni and Hadrien Royo that explores the world of climate change, extinction, and the hunt for the planet's most resilient lifeforms.

In an era when scripted podcasts are on the rise (with popular offerings like Earbud Theater regularly bringing new episodic horror), Crypto-Z is one of the first podcasts to extend the world of a best-selling novel– in this case. The podcast takes place in the world of Trussoni's The Ancestor, which was about a woman discovering her legacy in a castle in the Italian Alps. In Crypto-Z, many years have passed, and an X-Files-like group of agents in the same world are searching for many of the same secrets, including a yeti-like group in the alps that may hold the key to humanity's survival.
