The Call Out By Phil Ryan
He had been at Fast Kill for six years and had already learnt so much about pest eradication. Including making plans, setting traps, laying bait and establishing kill zones. So he was confident in quitting to start his own pest control company. He soon discovered his first day working for himself would involve a potential cockroach infestation. He thought it would be easy. He was wrong.
The Call Out is a new horror halloween audiobook for 2023. So get ready for a skin crawling tale about those little bugs behind our walls and under our floorboards. Who will win in the battle between pest and eradicator?
Performed and Read By Tim Winters.

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 70: A Season of Changes
James sits alone in his flat dreading the things that lurk outside. Margaret silently considers how much time she has left as a machine rhythmically measures her heartbeat. Kathy slowly worries about what she has lost and Jane tries to come to terms with what she now has to cut away. It is a season of change for all four of them and that's when the lightbulb flickers for a brief moment before the filament breaks at its weakest point and everyone is left in darkness. We all know it's only temporary, and lightness will surely soon return, but can we ever be sure?
'A Season of Changes' is our new audiodrama, recorded in Sheffield and telling the story of four people whose past misfortunes and future hopes become intertwined through a thin dividing wall.
Cornucopia Radio Podcast 69: Fading Down The River
The future comes for us all eventually. No matter how many times we have fought the good fight. So on the morning of September 1838, the HMS Temeraire, known as the ‘Fighting Temeraire’, was towed down the Thames to her final destination. On that day, the artist William Turner looked upon the scene and immortalised it in what was later to become the nation’s favourite painting.But there was more to this story than just a painting, but perhaps it is not the story you were expecting… "Fading Down The River" is our new historical audiodrama. Written by Brian Stephenson and Christopher Bellamy.
Cornucopia Radio Podcast 68: The Exhibit
The gavel slams onto its pedestal and the audience burst into applause. All around them, the gallery is buzzing with conversations from its many occupants, who mingle amongst the different paintings, photographs and sculptures that reside in this beautiful and luxurious endless white room. At the back, beaming with pride; stands Oscar Johansson. He is the artist behind all of this work... even though most of it was created by ‘something’ else.‘The Exhibit’ is our new Scripted-Podcast written by Andrew Shaktah, which investigates how Artificial Intelligence is increasingly being used to create new artistic works in a variety of fields. But at what point do the people behind the AI start to deserve as much credit as the artists themselves?
This is what you'll need....
To start listening to this podcast you should begin by attaching piece a to piece d, use piece g to level across piece F. Piece B should fit into piece c via the dowels which should now be visible from piece D. Hinge 1, which is perpendicular to hinge 3, should be lined up with the two runners on piece G. Bracket x which is connected to pole c, should now be facing magnetic north, while sprocket a and b, should now be vertical in a way which directly violates Newton’s first law of physics. Thankfully, for your benefit we have not labelled any of these identical looking pieces. That about sums up this podcast...
