The best, most professional sounding throwback radio entertainment in the galaxy.

I have been listening to Decoder Ring Theater (yes, that is the proper spelling south of the border) for longer than podcasts have been in existence and recently thought ‘why don’t i look them up on apple podcasts?’ so i did and they’re still awesome. But now I get to listen to not only Greg Taylor and Clarisssa der Nederlanden (a name I love to repeat to myself multiple times a day) but also whom I presume to be the offspring of Greg Taylor. And what a fine voice actor he is. For years of entertainment “tune in” to Decoder Ring Theater!

THE BEST for kids of all ages

DRT has been a staple at my house for over 10 years, from back in the days where podcasts weren’t too discoverable. My kids have memorized all the Red Panda episodes, and I dearly love Black Jack Justics, especially Trixie!

The good-natured Canadian sensibility of this show and the genuine talent of the cast combined with Taylor’s writing and sense of panache make this a must-listen for anyone.

Really the golden age of Radio reimagined.

Love this Podcast

I found this podcast last year, and it quickly became one of my favorites. When they started with the audiobook of Black Jack Justice, I stopped listening, waiting for them to get the entire book finished. I bought the book, read it, and pined for the last chapter to drop on it. It finally has and I am "re-reading" it now. Which is to say, I am following along as Jack and Trixie tell me the story again. I have heard them so much that even while I read on my own I heard their voices, but now to hear all of it as they tell me... it is fantastic.

Red Panda, Black Jack Justice, and the episodes that are stand alone stories, are all incredible. If you liked programs like The Shadow, or just the idea of old time radio dramas, this is the perfect podcast for you. Start at the first episode, and listen to then end. You will not be disappointed.

I have continued listening, and I still love Gregg Taylor’s stories. The audiobooks of late, have been amazing, and I will never give up hope on the full cast returning for new episodes of Red Panda, and Black Jack Justice. Arguably my favorite podcast.. possibly a tie between Decorder Ring Theatre and The Truth Podcast. Both provide amazing story telling, and fantastic productions. I love the old time radio feel of DRT.
