    Welcome to Paris

    Welcome to Paris

    This episode is our favorite of the COVID era so far. We got more than one sociopathic kid, Dean Koontz, and some put upon telephone operators. You know, classic Victrola.
    BIG THANKS! To all our Patreon supporters, especially our $5 and $10 Supporters Justin Linville, Michael Thomas, Peter Beare, Curtis Luciani, Frank Roberts, Lee Eddy, JD Monteith, and Kahlil Salome! 
    Each full length episode takes 40-50 hours to produce, and thanks to our Patreon we're no longer losing our shirt. If you like the podcast, drop us a dollar at Patreon.com/victrolapod
    We're also honored to be joined this month by Jose Gonzalez (Torch Theater), Mind Wei (Austin Sketch Fest), and Shannon McCormick (Rooster Teeth).

    WOAH! Big news, Vultures! After some soul searching, we've decided it's time to monetize the podcast. We've launched a Patreon for you to directly support us (http://patreon.com/victrolapod)
    New, full length episodes will ALWAYS be free, but if you want our weekly microsodes and that sweet, sweet bonus content you'll have to kick us a whole dollar a month.
    You may also have noticed that Seasons 1-3 have disappeared from the feed. We've put some of our archives behind a paywall. For three bucks a month, you get access to 100s of hours of inside jokes that your friends won't get!
    We're excited to play around with this and engage with you, our loyal listeners. We've got some awesome stuff planned, including live streams, Q&As and also some script readings in addition to finally finishing our BSCSU pilot, more Candy Crew episodes and even some animation. Thank you for your support!
    Don't got $1? No problem! Keep listening, and remember the best way to support us is leaving a review on iTunes!
    Victrola is produced by Michael Jastroch and stars Cortnie Jones, Lance Gilstrap, Bryan Roberts, Bob McNichol, Jericho Thorp, Molly Moore, Dalton Allen and features special guest Jose Gonzales!

    Loopty Screwed

    Please enjoy our latest full length episode LOOPTY SCREWED, cause let's face it that's how we're all feeling right now. Hopefully, this injects a small measure of escapism into your ears. I know the hour we record every week does the same for us.
     
    Our incredible Patreon supporters got access to this beast a full eighteen hours early! Not to mention - length wise - nearly enough content to make a second full length episode. All for $1 a month! Kick us a buck to help show your support, or kick a little more to get access to our back episodes! Every little bit helps keep us going.
     
    Don't have the cash? We get it. Don't forget, dropping us a review is one of the best things you can do to help us out!
     

    We're so close to having the audio back to pre COVID standards, but please excuse some popped Ps and at least one shitty connection. We said it last month, but it seems like something goes awry each recording session.  

     
    We're also honored to be joined this month by Jose Gonzalez (Torch Theater), Jon Bolden, and Allison Webster.

     
    Also, we got some ads this month from our podcast network, ColdTowne Radio. Give our sister programs a listen!

    The Shark of Mara La Ga Go

    The Shark of Mara La Ga Go

    WARNING: this month's episode features a ton of shark references as well as a scene set inside our absolute favorite Austin establishment (aside from ColdTowne Theater) and the world's greatest movie theater, the Alamo Drafthouse.
    I guess that second part is not really a warning, come to think of it. But if you're not from Austin and don't know the Drafthouse, it's a cool theater where you get to order food and drink and they kick you out if you're a jack ass and spoil the movie. 
    This month's episode features national treasure Jose Gonzalez (Torch Theatre, Galapagos), Meredith Mae Roberts, Joseph Daily (Midnight Society) and Valerie Ward (PGraph).
    LIVE SHOWS: We're performing at Out of Bounds! Friday, September 2nd at 7:30pm! Get your tickets!
    As always a DONATION helps us out! But mostly, please remember to RATE and REVIEW and SUBSCRIBE on iTunes!

Best show for passing time and lifting your spirits

Funny, engaging, creative and always finished way too soon (my ex-bf had the same issue) this show is everything you're looking for in sketch comedy. Brilliant. 10/10 would recommend 👍

Get these guys a tv show

Witty, current, playful. Victrola surprises and delights with each listen. Love these guys!!

Just Damned Funny

This is the podcast you never knew you needed. Sharp, funny, and original. I’m often crying with laughter. I love the production values and the bizarreness of their humor. So thankful to have found them during the pandemic.
