    HP Lovecraft’s “The Statement of Randolph Carter”

    HP Lovecraft’s “The Statement of Randolph Carter”

    “But I do not fear Harley Warren now, for I suspect that she has known horrors beyond my ken. Now I fear for her.” This was the very first episode we recorded, about six years ago. On that day, we missed a page and a half, and then it took a few years to get … Continue reading "HP Lovecraft’s “The Statement of Randolph Carter”"

    Downs: The White Ghost

    Downs: The White Ghost

    “She traded her eyes for forbidden knowledge.”  When creating the character of Susan Downs, I was looking for something with a strong logline that could carry any story I felt like telling. I wanted something with a supernatural bent, and I was tired of the crime noir stuff I’d been doing before that. She’s appeared … Continue reading "Downs: The White Ghost"

    The Greatest Show (Left) On Earth

    The Greatest Show (Left) On Earth

    Jerod Brennan always goes dark. I’ve mentioned this before, but when we were first conceiving this show, for some reason we kept coming back to threats to children. “Godmother” was my riff on this theme, and Greatest Show is Jerod’s. He, uh, managed to go a little darker than me. Greatest Show (Left) on Earth … Continue reading "The Greatest Show (Left) On Earth"

    Making Ends Meet

    Making Ends Meet

    I actually read this story a few years ago in Fantasy Scroll Magazine, and when I got in touch with Jarod I suggested it could make a good radio story. It has a strong narrator, a nice twist, and – most importantly – it ain’t too long. This episode marks the first one of our … Continue reading "Making Ends Meet"

    Simulation

    Simulation

    Spoilers and behind-the scenes stuff is at the bottom – Uploading your consciousness to the cloud – we’re going to see if we can make that old sci-fi trope even more horrifying than it was already. While we’re talking about tropes, it’s a trope to say that “It came to me in a dream.” But … Continue reading "Simulation"

    The Palomino Station Murder

    The Palomino Station Murder

    The pitch for this was pretty simple: Our Town, but on a space station, and with a murder. Where I come from isn’t exactly a small town, but it’s pretty close. As I picture a space station, I picture it being pretty much like that, but more so. No one’s moving in and no one’s … Continue reading "The Palomino Station Murder"

Great Anthology Fiction

This is well produced and well written audio fiction in the vein of Twilight Zone. Fun, strange listening.

Fun Twilight Zone-like Radio Drama

From the streets of Columbus, Ohio comes this anthology of old-time inspired radio plays with a twist. I've listened to the first two episodes and love the mix of great stories along with high-quality audio production. Fans of Rod Serling or O. Henry will enjoy. A nice change of pace from the news, sports, and pop culture podcasts that fill my playlists. I look forward to more episodes.
