    05. Monkey

    On the edge of town, camping in the woods near a freeway onramp, a man, stripped of everything, is confronted by his son over a long-forgotten promise. 

    Monkey was originally produced in Los Angeles at Moving Arts Theatre Company.  Max Franko co-produced with 99 Seats in Your Skull.   Fun fact:  Almost everything in this audio drama is based on / inspired by, real stuff.  My uncle was homeless by choice for a long time.  My great uncle gave me a fossilized mud crack for my birthday.  My dad promised to buy me a monkey but didn't.     This was all recorded online during the pandemic so if you notice some inconsistent vocals -- hey, sometimes that's just the way it goes.   Thanks for listening.

Raw and Real

You had me with “adult themes and strong language.” Clearly this writer has a great grasp on the undersides of humanity and the depth of our darkness as a species. Fun and exciting and a nice diversion from everything else I should be doing :) Thanks!

Pelfrey’s Genius

Grabs us by the throat in Chapter One and never let’s go. A taut, harrowing account of toxic masculinity and the lies we tell ourselves. Male best friends gather for the wedding of one of their own and simmering secrets bubble up from the past. We are confronted with twists and turns we never saw coming! Excellent psychological horror!

Thinking Man’s Horror

This anthology podcast series will chill you to the bone while making you laugh out loud at times. Each episode takes you on a wild ride through the dark heart of America. What sets it apart from other Horror series is the writing from Matt Pelfrey who has a PhD level understanding of the genre as he dissects and comments upon it, interjecting doses of hilarious dark humor, all while paying reverential duty to it. The production values and acting are top notch as well.
