    Update! And A MARVELS Trailer

    Update! And A MARVELS Trailer

    Weird week, right? Anyway, Marvel asked us to put a trailer for their cool new show MARVELS in our feed. So we're using that as an excuse to update everyone on what we're doing and how we're keeping cool during the worldwide pandemic.
    First off, check out the MARVELS podcast at marvelspodcast.com. It's written, directed, and sound designed by people we like!
    Then, hope you liked our update! We ARE hard at work, we just move slow and are super picky.
    Also, the charity I was talking about is Feeding America. It's tough out there you guys, and donating to a charity I think does good work makes me feel a little more in control. http://feedingamerica.org/

    OUT OF UNIVERSE - A Conversation With Ella Watts

    So... Episode 3 of Left of the Dial will be delayed until Wednesday June 5th. Sorry about that. To make it up to you, Marc had a lovely conversation about Archive 81 with Ella Watts, an audio drama maven and the producer of The Orphans, a sci-fi podcast.
    Here's her twitter: https://twitter.com/GejWatts
    And her podcast: https://twitter.com/OrphansAudio
    Hopefully you enjoy the conversation, Marc had a VERY long day and this was VERY last minute. 
    See you again on June 5th.

    OUT OF UNIVERSE - Season 3 Q and A

    OUT OF UNIVERSE - Season 3 Q and A

    Dan and Marc answer questions and talk about the future of Archive 81. Somehow, we get into a tangent about Simon and Garfunkel.
    Our next Archive 81-related thing will be a miniseries called "Left of the Dial." We reserve the right to change this. Goodbye for a little bit. But we'll be back

NepetaLeij ,

EASILY in my top five favourite podcasts. Amazingly done!

Im usually a very picky person when it comes to podcasts, specifically horror and sci-fi, but this one ticks ALL the boxes.

Archive 81 has a fleshed out universe with characters that are flawed but loveable, great voice acting and sound design, with an interesting almost arg feel to it.

I honestly have no idea what people are talking about when they say they hated the 2nd season, if anything the second season was even better than the first as it allowed the characters to develop and interact more with each other, and this is continued in the 3rd season with an even bigger increase in world building!

I felt like that iasip pepe silvia meme with this one whenever a character or event would be mentioned from a previous tape, and the satisfaction I got from finally being able to connect new information to past lore was immense!!

I highly recommend everyone listen to this one, Archive 81 is criminally underrated.

MutedMaple ,

Excellent.

Archive 81 executes creepy-cool with originality and natural prowess. The storyline blends banal realities with warped unrealities in a way that doesn’t leave me detached. My energy is spent less on suspending disbelief, and more on immersing myself in the story.

im just here listening ,

Always come back to it

This is my favourite podcast! Also listen to it on day off and for roadtrips
