SRD Shorts: The Problem
Life onboard a spaceship seems pretty cushy.

So… how will the crew of the UGFAP Exercise keep themselves busy between missions to fetch things from different space stations?

Boozlers in the Basement: January
Eugene, Beulah and Glade Boozler have all been trapped in the basement of the Station Inn, Nashville since the beginning of the quarantimes without a single trip out to buy emergency TP or just go for a walk to make sure the neighborhood still looks the way they remember (highly recommended). So, to say they’re going a little stir crazy is an understatement. How will a cabinet full of old games, most of which are missing pieces or have beer crusted on them, help keep them from losing it?

The Slay Belles Season Premiere
Ruby, Ethel and Edith are The Slay Belles, a butt kicking trio of office warriors here to kick the monsters out of your cubicle. That is, provided said monsters are literal and the kicking can be equally literal. Usually they limit themselves to the holidays, hence their team name but this year something is different. The office monsters have persisted into the fourth quarter and that can’t be good. Will they be able to find out where the monsters are coming from and stem the tide before all humanity and productivity is lost?

I love this, it's just like SNL only better.
Public Domain Adventure Team ROCKS!
"Why no one has made it big with such a simple idea is beyond words. Thankfully, the folks at Starlight Radio Dreams do it rather well in their recurring segment, titled: “Public Domain Adventure Team.”
As the title suggests, it stars characters in the public domain. Think the Avengers or Justice League, but with literary classics. The cast includes Jane Eyre, Beowulf, Mr. Toad (The Winds in the Willows), and the Ghost of Christmas Past (A Christmas Carol).
... One of the more fascinating elements about the show is that it is a live performance. The engaged audience adds to the level of enjoyment on the podcast. Like yawning, laughter is contagious, and you’re certainly laughing with the audience every time a joke lands. For those who hate laugh tracks in sitcoms, might get annoyed at the constant laughter, but you can’t deny it adds to the overall experience of the live performance—which is by far the most entertaining aspect of this production company, even while listening by yourself with the theater of the mind."
Saw them live for the Chicago Podcast Festival in October 2017 and had a blast. Ghost Bros!
