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.
Church of the Paradox
After insulting both the guinea pig and psychic communities, Terry must make a heartfelt on-air apology. But soon after, he draws the ire of a popular - and litigious - religious cult that will only relent after he agrees to take an eye-opening tour of their facilities.
Terry realizes the key to what happened to his beloved – and possibly dead - wife may be held by someone from his past who has trouble communicating. He enlists his psychic colleague Veronica to help uncover the truth about what Annabelle witnessed.
The Haunting of Emily's Hair
When Terry wakes up in Dr. Lizzie’s bed, things get awkward. Later, when Terry meets a famous director (Jason Reitman) who wants to make Terry’s screenplay, Terry threatens to give up the radio show to pursue a life of Hollywood fame.
Somebody’s Watching Me
To deal with his growing paranoia, Terry attempts to self-medicate. That night, things get hostile at KSB AM when a superfan (Matt Jones) takes Terry hostage on the air.
Fame Be a Fickle Mistress
Terry has an ingenious idea to connect with fans and make some extra money on the side: He will host a live Dark Air show at Comic-Con! But he has no idea what he’s in for when he meets a major celebrity (Nathan Fillion) with extraterrestrial motives.
How Deep State is Your Love?
Jeet’s clingy behavior drives Terry to come up with a plan to get his engineer romantically involved. But his matchmaking skills backfire when a starstruck fan (Kether Donohue) turns the tables on him.
For God sake don't ever let this end!!!
The best part of the week, sit back order a coconut water with caffeine & cbd and get lost in the world of Terry Carnation. F#*K THE hamster!
I have spent the day laughing out loud binge listening this gem of a podcast. As well as the super scripts, deft acting, multi-dimensional characters, intriguing mystery storyline and superb sound production, it’s superbly satisfying that it’s proper grown-up, un-censored humour. Even the ads are funny and woven into the story so don’t break the flow like in other podcasts. Just wait until you get to the Haunting of Emily’s hair :-) :-) . I don’t want it to end. Please keep making weekly episodes for ever and ever and ever.
First of all, people complaining about ads need to knock that on the head. You’re being provided with free content that you claim to like. Also, these ads are funny and done in the style of the show so they seem authentic to the radio show ‘Dark Air’.
I loved Radio Rental and this spin-off show is fantastic and funny. I love the humour and the low-fi style of the show; like a radio version of the Radio Rental if that makes sense.
I hope there’s more episodes in the future.
Thank you for making this series. It’s a joy to listen to.
