An Immersive Audio Event
By Tom Flynn
Directed by Joseph Discher
Produced by Robert Cuccioli

Available On Demand from September 11 – 18, 2021
On September 11, 2001, journalist Tom Flynn set off on his bike toward the World Trade Towers not knowing what he was riding into. Bikeman is one man’s journey back to the horrors of that day and to the humanity that somehow emerged from the dust and the death. Both heartbreaking and haunting, his words will stay with you like that “forever September morning.” – Meredith Vieira, NBC’s Today.
Modeled on Dante’s Inferno, veteran journalist Thomas Flynn’s Bikeman chronicles the morning of September 11, 2001, like no other published work. Flynn delivers a personal account of his experiences beginning with the first strike on the World Trade Center when he decided to follow his journalist’s instinct and point his bike’s handlebars in the direction of the north tower. His story continues as he transitions from reporter to participant hoping to survive the fall of the south tower. Now Flynn, as both journalist and now survivor, must come to terms with the harrowing ordeal and somehow find peace in the very act of surviving.
For the best way to experience this audio event, we’d recommend using headphones, earphones, or earbuds.
