Rainn Wilson stars in this fictional darkly comedic podcast that explores the on and off-air life of Terry Carnation – a late-night talk-radio show host who deals with bizarre topics, outrageous callers... and gets caught up in a mystery of his own.
Introducing: Let's Make A Sci-Fi
From the producers of Dark Air comes Lets Make A Sci-Fi: An eight-part adventure through the creative process as three comedians try writing a successful sci-fi pilot— with help from scientific experts and Hollywood screenwriting pros like Rainn Wilson (The Office), astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Vox Media's Emily Vanderwerff and director Neill Blomkamp (District 9). At the end, the audience will get to hear professional actors perform the script—for better or worse.
Bonus - OMG, Seriously, Is Terry Ever Coming Back?!
After getting death threats, Jeet admits the sordid truth about his cover-up at KSB, but just when all seems lost, Jeet gets a call… from Terry?
Bonus - Terry’s Still Missing
It’s another night of calls with Terry back at the mic. Or IS he? Jeet gets a call from Terry’s old intern / frenemy (minus the “fr”) Wes Poppovitz threatening to expose him. Complicating matters, Future Terry calls in and messes up the time-space continuum.
Bonus - Terry’s Missing
While Terry is “in the hospital”, Jeet plays previously unheard calls from the Dark Air vault (which isn’t in a vault, more like a box of tapes on the top shelf in the supply closet) featuring Terry’s old audio engineer, Reginald.
Finale Part 2
After being fired by Al, Terry uncovers the person behind his dead wife’s disappearance. But his ravings land him in a mental institution. Terry is offered a surprising alliance. But is the enemy of his enemy his friend? And can he convince the cafeteria to give him seconds of pudding?
Having just been kidnapped, Terry is suspicious of everyone’s motives. Do they know what happened to his wife? Will Terry finally get to the truth? Will his boss Al ever forgive Terry for sending Al’s elderly mother to jail?
I’m a U.K. horror and magical realism author and love dark shows, especially those with a comedic twist. I’m always amazed at Terry’s production quality. Creepy, macabre, and beyond hilarious. What a wit! I discovered Terry Carnation through Radio Rentals. Loving this show so far. Amazing content (as usual) from this super talented audio drama host. Terry, I really appreciate your hard work. Don’t stop! Huge fan. Cheers, D. J. Swales
Comedy gold = a must listen
I was obsessed with GTA in the early noughts. To the annoyance of my then boyfriend, all I did was park my car and listen to the radio. My favourite was the talk shows and spoof ads. Dark Air fills the void and sort of evolves the GTA genre for me.
The DA ads are part of the genius of this show. And no, there aren’t too many. At first I thought the ads were GTA-style spoofs (I live in 🇬🇧 so hadn’t heard of MeUndies etc), but when I realised they’re real I enjoyed them even more so. They are deftly intertwined. I’d buy MeUndies if they were sold in 🇬🇧.
Back to the show ; it’s enjoyable and clever on so many levels (I liked the Samuel Becket reference) and all the characters are funny. The dude calling in about his neighbour’s microwave is my favourite. I’m addicted to this show; more please! And one last note. The merch: it’s sorta predictably dull - something other than tee shirts and mugs might be good?
Reminds me of talk show radio in GTA, this would be perfect for GTA 6 hit rockstar up! - Top man
