A new-time take on old-time radio!

Freshly Squeezed Pulp is a comedy podcasting troupe based at Duke University. We're working to bring back old-school pulp fiction books as audio dramas in the style of Golden Age radio. Each season, we pick one series to rework and parody as a single, cohesive story.

Our 2019 season, The Adventures of Tar-Zaan, is a parody of the original "Tarzan" novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs. It's a wacky romp through the jungles of the western coast of equatorial Africa and beyond, featuring mathematicians, dinosaurs, magic, lost empires, and more. Warning: this show may make you feel things.

Fans? We want to hear from you! Drop us a line at freshlysqueezedpulppodcast@gmail.com.
