50 episodes

The Ketchup is the last music podcast on Earth. After some disaster wipes out most of the human race -- or so it seems -- an injured man named Del finds himself alone in a California bomb shelter with no memory of how he got there… but with a computer full of music. Rather than sit in silence, Del resurrects a teenage passion, the mock radio show, by broadcasting weekly rock missives into the void. The music helps Del remember. But is anybody listening?

The Nerdologues are proud to re-present this 50-episode serial podcast created by and starring the Emmy award-winning Gary Lucy, friend of the group and all-around great guy. We’ll be putting up a new episode of the Ketchup weekly and adding in some bonus material as we go. Now strap on those headphones. It’s the end of the world as we know it, and we feel fine.

Nothing like it.

Show creator Gary Lucy really came upon an incredible idea for a show here. There's nothing else like it. The way Del's story intertwines with the music, and the way we slowly learn more about him... it's so good. Highly recommended.

Great music!

And great concept, so fun and surprisingly poignant at times. Instantly hooked :)

I love the podcast, so unique and original. Have been introduced to some new music is a fun form.
