Episode 527 - Arden

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for Arden! Is it a true-crime parody? No, not exactly. It takes the crime very seriously. But it is funny, and it is also a show with a mystery: what happened to actress and heiress Julie Capsom, when she disappeared on Christmas a decade ago? The product of three writers—sketch comic Sara Ghaleb, entertainment critic Todd VanDerWerff, and Hollywood historian Christopher Dole—Arden is an engaging mystery hosted by two women—an ex-cop and a reporter—who fight over how they want to frame the show and contextualize Capsom's disappearance.

Bob Koester - 'Companions'

Harry wanted to be alone, and so he was: as alone as a person can be, transmuted into tachyon particles and hurled into deepest space, with nothing but an artificial intelligence for company. He was alone, and then, gradually, he wasn't. Harry and his friend Cailyn, are commanders on distant power stations with nothing but their AIs and their correspondence for company. Harry and Cailyn receive an application that allows them to upload virtual surrogates of themselves so that they can communicate "in-person", and it's the connection forged via those surrogates that might just save the universe.

Point Mystic - 'White Rabbit', Parts I and II

This week, we're exploring Christopher Reynaga's Point Mystic, playing "White Rabbit, Parts I and II" from that show. Point Mystic is a fiction show done up in a narrative-nonfiction style, à la This American Life—it's about Christopher's family, and the spookiness of the town they inhabit. The White Rabbit cycle was created in collaboration with Christopher's wife, Marguerite Croft, and their son Fox—and all three of them act (quite ably) in the show.It's a fascinating mixture of nonfiction interviews and fiction segments, but presented in such a way that each supports the other, which isn't as common as you'd think.

The Fall of the House of Sunshine - 'Open Wide and Say Die'

What a suntabulous bicuspid of a day! It's time for the Sunshine Smile Hour, a dental hygiene-themed children's program! Oh golly, this is a good one, and ain't that the tooth.So this episode is utterly wackadoo: imagine a musical comedy along the lines of Book of Mormon, Avenue Q, or Reefer Madness, with a solid helping of noir pastiche and cosmic horror alongside. The Fall of the House of Sunshine is like if you put all of the above musicals into a high-powered blender along with a collection of H.P. Lovecraft short stories, a pint of ether and a handful of dexedrine. It is hilarious! It is offensive! It is stylistically all over the place! It is RELENTLESS!And I love it? You will too, I reckon.

Bronzeville is a story of the Great Migration: it follows Jimmy Tillman (Larenz Tate), a papermill worker from Arkansas who kills a strikebreaker and flees to Chicago to find a new life for himself, tracing the steps of millions of Black Americans who migrated from the rural South to the urban North in the mid-20th century.Jimmy makes his way to Bronzeville, the legendary Black neighborhood on Chicago's South Side, where he falls in with the Copeland family, the operators of a policy racket—an underground lottery—that functioned like a bank when white-owned banks wouldn't lend to Black people. Everett Copeland (Wood Harris) is doing a spell in federal prison for tax evasion, so he asks his old lieutenant Curtis "Eyeball" Randolph (Laurence Fishburne) to get back into the game.(Yeah for real this is a star-studded episode! I can scarcely believe it myself.)We play episode 1 of Bronzeville, and then I talk to two of the producers, LaRon and Lahmard Tate, about the show's origins, productions that are too Black for TV, and the Tate family's Chicago history.CW: violence, racist languageHEY ALSO we have a PayPal button that I forgot about?

RDR From the Vault: Heart of Morphine, by Roger Gregg

Today RDR from the Vault launches a series of episodes highlighting Roger Gregg, playwright master of Dublin, Ireland.Roger pioneered his own audio sound, a wacky blend of Captain Beefheart sonic assault and an intimate, fine theatre sensibility. He produced for RTE - that’s the public radio of Ireland- for the better part of a decade and since parting ways with them has continued on mostly on stage but ocacsionally gracing us with an audio piece. What we’ll hear today is one of the latter types, from the post-RTE era of Roger’s work, done during his work as a theatre instructor at the Gaiety school of Acting in Ireland.This is “Heart of Morphine”Morgan O’Brien hangs in limbo between life and death, and finds the afterlife a much wilder place than he imagined. Confused, frustrated, and alone, he is forced to confront the reality of his actions made while alive. But is there still time to go back and change things?

Their off-kilter adventures take them through an America full of fairy queens, giant bees, and explosion-sports, and through it all, the show's commitment to surfacing minority perspectives, queer identities, and a cheerful attitude shine through.Stick around after I play the revised first episode of Jim Robbie and the Wanderers, and you'll get to hear an interview with Iri and Laura, two members of the creative team behind the show.

Our Fair City - Season 1

Policies and polic-ettes! We return to the tunnels of the world of Our Fair City, with the remastered full-entirety-episode of Season 1, polished up by the team of Hartlife NFP who now are in their spectacular 6th season of Over-The-Top post-apocalpytic mayhem.Why re-write, re-record, re-produce an existing piece of content? The creators of Our Fair City chime in:Season One represents the very beginning of our learning process. In the writers’ room, we’ve learned a lot about crafting a compelling story using audio alone. In the studio, we’ve learned an incredible amount about what makes good sound; our first season was recorded in a closet (literally) with a popscreen made from pantyhose and a coat hanger. And in our lives, we’ve all grown as people. In some cases, our past work tells a very different story (and reinforces different cultural narratives and norms) than we intended. As the artistic and administrative team has diversified, in terms of gender, race, sexuality, gender expression, and more, we’ve all had the opportunity to re-examine what we were saying with our first season. We are proud of all the work we’ve done, but we felt the time was right to revisit this early work.What you will hear is our best foot forward, driven by everything we’ve learned personally and professionally over the last five years. With Season One Revisited we have been able to communicate the original story of Neal Henderson, Elizabeth Rourke, Alison Dalton, and Nathan Rourke in a way that is truer to our intentions, approachable for new fans of the show, and exciting for our long-time listeners. If you’ve always wanted an easy ambasador piece to get your friends listening to the show, this is it!Full notes: http://www.ourfaircity.com/2015/07/what-we-talk-about-when-we-talk-about-season-one/Take a listen to their efforts, and enjoy, anew, an introduction to the world of Our Fair City.Download Radio Drama Revival - Episode 420The post Episode 420 – Revisiting the Tunn

Saratoga Fat Cats - Part 3

Part 3 of 3Alas! We wrap up ZBS Foundations' lush field-recorded noir romp, Saratoga Fat Cats.Willie, who paints houses, is hired by some rich guy to repaint a few rooms in his summer mansion. His girlfriend, a wet T-shirt model for Sports Illustrated, can’t stand the colors. Her name is Christy St. Nichols, she’s a pretty down-to-earth gal, she knows the sexy modeling she’s doing is simply fulfilling unfulfilled male fantasies.One day someone shoots out the windows in the summer mansion. Seems like the rich guy, Lucas Trust is his name, may have been involved in something that wasn’t all that up & up. Since Christy is allergic to cats, Lucas gives the gardener, his name is Shades, his two fat cats to take look after.Willie loves to read cheap pulpy detective novels, his favorite is a P.I. by the name of Short Top Detroit. When he almost gets blown up with a car bomb, along with Lucas, it so shakes up Willie, he’s now hearing Short Top inside his own head.The sound is warm and intimate because it was recorded with Fritz. To hear the 3D effect, listen with headphones or earbuds. It’s probably the most realistic, natural sounding production we’ve ever done. Mr. Fulton wrote it specifically for Mr. Fritz.Download Radio Drama Revival - Episode 419The post Episode 419 – Saratoga’s Fat Cats (3 of 3) appeared first on Radio Drama Revival.

The Sting of the Dark Tower - All Episodes

Thanks to Alicia Goranson (The Mask Of Inanna) for encouraging Peter Gruenbaum to submit this delightful re-imagining of an apocryphal work by C.S. Lewis, "The Sting of the Dark Tower" (not to be confused with Stephen King's Dark Tower!).C.S. Lewis is invited to visit a lab in 1940’s Cambridge England where he is shown a device called a “chronoscope” that does to time what a telescope does to space. The chronoscope shows strange images of a dark tower ruled by men with stingers on their foreheads. An accident with the machine results in minds being switched between Cambridge and the dark tower. In the present, a precocious teenager and her mysterious nanny explore and ultimately complete this work of fiction that was discovered after C.S. Lewis’s death.The Sting of the Dark Tower asks the questions: How are Lewis’s ideas relevant to today? How might the story have been written if it had our modern viewpoint?Voiced by professional actors and with an original score for classical saxophone quartet, The Sting of the Dark Tower will take you back in time, sideways in time, and perhaps get you to think about who are our own men with stingers.Download Radio Drama Revival - Episode 409The post Episode 409 – Bracing for the Sting of the Dark Tower appeared first on Radio Drama Revival.

The Weather Looks Grim Up North - From BBC Radio Cumbria

In case you thought that getting several feet of snow dumped on you was bad, we remind you that the plight of the Roman soldier in AD126 was way, way worse.This cheeky tale, "It's Grim Up North," is a historic radio sitcom about the plight of Rome's men manning Hadrian's Wall, specifically, life at Milecastle 17 - Drizzlewort.Widely considered to be the worst posting of all for those Romans soldiers unfortunate enough to be serving the Empire in Britain, life in Drizzlewort not only consists of building the wall but also manning the gate, which acts as a customs post and access point for local traders, and where sentry duty mostly involves keeping out the deadly, if hard-to-pin-down Picts.The soldiers posted to Drizzlewort never stop complaining, and are generally the lowest of the low, most of whom would desert given half a chance. However, every cloud has a silver lining and, given the place’s strategic importance and isolation, there are always good business opportunities for people who can manipulate the system…Produced by Ed Waugh & Trevor Wood, originally commissioned by BBC Radio Cumbria for a five-part radio sitcom.Download Radio Drama Revival Episode 403Other StuffWe hear from Matthew McLean's Audio Drama Production Podcast and welcome David Rheinstrom aboard as reviews editor.
