Paul Bae's anthology The Big Loop is unlike anything else you'll hear in podcasting--not just because of its gorgeous writing, honest acting, and blend of the surreal and the hyperreal, but also because of how it plays with form. In this week's Radio Drama Revival, we highlight an instance of The Big Loop doing just that in its episode "Surfacing," the story of a Japanese deaf ama diver, as translated and told by her daughter.

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for Arden!

Is it a true-crime parody? No, not exactly. It takes the crime very seriously. But it is funny, and it is also a show with a mystery: what happened to actress and heiress Julie Capsom, when she disappeared on Christmas a decade ago?
The product of three writers—sketch comic Sara Ghaleb, entertainment critic Todd VanDerWerff, and Hollywood historian Christopher Dole—Arden is an engaging mystery hosted by two women—an ex-cop and a reporter—who fight over how they want to frame the show and contextualize Capsom's disappearance.

Queen Victoria, having survived numerous assassination attempts, has been biotically welded to poor Prince Albert. And the great black Tower of London beams wireless electricity throughout the great city, providing everyone with limitless free energy but somehow in no way reducing their immiseration.

Wed, 06 Jun 2018 12:00:06 GMT
This is one of my favorite episodes of any audio drama.

It encompasses everything I love about Wolf 359: its pacing, its plotting, its deep humanism, and its fantastic writing, music, and performances. Like all great science fiction, it is about more than just its text—and I think that's what attracted me to this episode.

I'll be talking to Gabriel Urbina and Sarah Shachat, the two main writers behind Wolf 359, next week -- and so to prep for that, I wanted to revisit an old favorite.

This episode falls in Season 3 of Wolf 359, so while I think it's a successful standalone (and I provide more context in the episode itself), you should certainly feel free to dive into the series and start from the beginning. I promise it's worth it.

What does "Memoria" represent to you? Let me know what you think; hit us up in the comments or talk at us on Twitter; we're @radiodrama.
I sat down with Matt Roi Berger, Jonathan Goldberg, and Marcus Bagala of The Fall of the House of Sunshine to discuss craft, prog rock albums, President Harding fighting a walrus, and, of course, teeth.

If you loved the previous utterly wackadoo sampling from this show, I think you're going to love Season 2 even more.


You don't need to have listened to the first season to make sense of the second. Suffice it to say that there was a sinister plot to detonate the fuzzatronic bomb—an arcane weapon that turned everything into fuzzy puppets and stuffed animals. Well. Almost everything.

There's a very fun guest star in this episode, to boot!

ENJOY, and stick around for next week's show, an interview with some of the creative dynamos behind this project!

Sunny's origins in podcasting

The balance between mystery-box plots and Explaining Everything
Foucault's heterotopia, and spaces outside of normal rules
Mental illness and apocalypse (where did they all go?!)

It's morning, and something's different. Everything's different. Everyone's gone. No commotion, no explanation. Suddenly the world is emptied of people.


Except for you.


This is Sunny Moraine's GONE, a taut, claustrophobic horror podcast about waking up and realizing you're entirely alone in the world. It's kind of the horror-counterpart to Michelle Nickolaisen's UNPLACED, at least superficially -- but while those two shows twine around similar themes, their execution couldn't be more different.

We play episode 1 of Gone, "Awakening". Stay tuned for next week's show, when show creator Sunny and I sit down for a chat about their creative process, their dissertation in sociology, and makin' scary fiction.

He was alone, and then, gradually, he wasn't. Harry and his friend Cailyn, are commanders on distant power stations with nothing but their AIs and their correspondence for company. Harry and Cailyn receive an application that allows them to upload virtual surrogates of themselves so that they can communicate "in-person", and it's the connection forged via those surrogates that might just save the universe.

This week, we're exploring Christopher Reynaga's Point Mystic, playing "White Rabbit, Parts I and II" from that show. Point Mystic is a fiction show done up in a narrative-nonfiction style, à la This American Life—it's about Christopher's family, and the spookiness of the town they inhabit. The White Rabbit cycle was created in collaboration with Christopher's wife, Marguerite Croft, and their son Fox—and all three of them act (quite ably) in the show.

It's a fascinating mixture of nonfiction interviews and fiction segments, but presented in such a way that each supports the other, which isn't as common as you'd think.
It's our Christmas spectacula-a-a-a-a-ar! Settle in for a long winter's DELIGHT as we present Sassquach Radio's Deck The Halls (With Matrimony!), a Christmas romantic comedy.

What a suntabulous bicuspid of a day! It's time for the Sunshine Smile Hour, a dental hygiene-themed children's program! Oh golly, this is a good one, and ain't that the tooth.

So this episode is utterly wackadoo: imagine a musical comedy along the lines of Book of Mormon, Avenue Q, or Reefer Madness, with a solid helping of noir pastiche and cosmic horror alongside. The Fall of the House of Sunshine is like if you put all of the above musicals into a high-powered blender along with a collection of H.P. Lovecraft short stories, a pint of ether and a handful of dexedrine. It is hilarious! It is offensive! It is stylistically all over the place! It is RELENTLESS!

Bronzeville is a story of the Great Migration: it follows Jimmy Tillman (Larenz Tate), a papermill worker from Arkansas who kills a strikebreaker and flees to Chicago to find a new life for himself, tracing the steps of millions of Black Americans who migrated from the rural South to the urban North in the mid-20th century.
Jimmy makes his way to Bronzeville, the legendary Black neighborhood on Chicago's South Side, where he falls in with the Copeland family, the operators of a policy racket—an underground lottery—that functioned like a bank when white-owned banks wouldn't lend to Black people. Everett Copeland (Wood Harris) is doing a spell in federal prison for tax evasion, so he asks his old lieutenant Curtis "Eyeball" Randolph (Laurence Fishburne) to get back into the game.
(Yeah for real this is a star-studded episode! I can scarcely believe it myself.)
We play episode 1 of Bronzeville, and then I talk to two of the producers, LaRon and Lahmard Tate, about the show's origins, productions that are too Black for TV, and the Tate family's Chicago history.

Quill Marine is built around the biggest secret of all time, and new recruits have to be taken down to see the secret—to see if they can handle it.

With music and immersive sound design by Avi Ziv, Bhawmik animates this ancient Indian epic, rendering it in English to delight those that have never heard it before as well as those who were raised on the stories.
The Mahabharata is thousands of years old, and originally in Sanskrit. It tells the story of two groups of warring cousins -- the Pandava brothers and the Kaurava brothers -- who fight over the throne. But it's more than just a war story; it's a story of love and curses, righteousness and evil, tricksters, poisons, and monkeys.
We're featuring episodes 30 and 31 of Bhawmik's retold Mahabharata: first, Bheema (a Pandava brother with enormous strength) encounters Hanuman. Then, a story of Arjuna (another Pandava, and the greatest archer in the world).

Matthew Cavan is an actor and drag queen in Belfast, Northern Ireland; they came out about their HIV-positive status in 2010, and has since faced a torrent of criticism, shaming, and even death threats. The piece we’re playing today, “Hi, I’m Mattie”, is a verbatim piece -- that is, the script is taken word-for-word from interactions that Mattie had on the gay dating app Grindr, where they disclose their HIV-positive status up-front.

Afterwards, Alexander (the producer of the piece) joins me to talk about the origins of SMASH/CUT, and many other things besides!

This week, I had the great pleasure of talking to Mallory Ortberg, a writer, culture critic, and advice columnist. She's Dear Prudence over at Slate, and she used to run a magnificent site called The Toast.

In this episode, we discuss:

The Handmaid's Tale and White Feminism
How to avoid becoming an Internal Expat
* Fending off the Republic of Gilead

and much, much more!

Ahh, ancient Greece. Hot nymphs, raging orgies, much wine, song, and occasional transformations into a goat. All well and good, right?

Well things are more wacky than ever in the sizzling and scandalous interpretation of the myth of Orpheus done by Roger Gregg, The Stuff of Myth.

This great production won a Gold Ogle in 2007 and has gotten rave reviews as a stage play. Now hear what the buzz is all about in Parts 1-2 of The Stuff of Myth.

Today RDR from the Vault launches a series of episodes highlighting Roger Gregg, playwright master of Dublin, Ireland.

Roger pioneered his own audio sound, a wacky blend of Captain Beefheart sonic assault and an intimate, fine theatre sensibility. He produced for RTE - that’s the public radio of Ireland- for the better part of a decade and since parting ways with them has continued on mostly on stage but ocacsionally gracing us with an audio piece. What we’ll hear today is one of the latter types, from the post-RTE era of Roger’s work, done during his work as a theatre instructor at the Gaiety school of Acting in Ireland.

This is “Heart of Morphine”

Morgan O’Brien hangs in limbo between life and death, and finds the afterlife a much wilder place than he imagined. Confused, frustrated, and alone, he is forced to confront the reality of his actions made while alive. But is there still time to go back and change things?

This week, things are going to get spooky at Radio Drama Revival as we delve into the world of horror audio fiction. David talks to Marc Sollinger and Dan Powell, the evil minds behind Archive 81 and The Deep Vault.

They discuss the horror fiction that makes them tick, how to construct audio fiction that’ll make your skin crawl, and what it’s like to collaborate with one of your closest friends. We’ll also take a listen to the first episode of their show Archive 81, which is about a young man with a new job, recordings from an uncanny apartment building, and the dangers of listening.

Re-play of the 2012 BBC Series "The Mumbai Chuzzlewits," adapted by Ayeesha Menon from the Charles Dickens novel "Martin Chuzzlewits," and transposed to Modern India. Produced by John Dryden of Goldhawk Productions.

Convinced his relatives are after his money, miserly old recluse Martin Chuzzlewit (Roshan Seth), adopts orphan girl, Mary (Nimrat Kaur), to be his carer. As she will inherit nothing upon his death, he believes she will do her utmost to keep him in good health. But when his grandson Mickey (Zafar Karachiwala) falls in love with her, Martin's plans are thrown into disarray. Disinheriting him, Martin triggers a complex web of deceit, betrayal and manipulation as the extended family and hangers-on close in, in pursuit of his fortune.

Mickey returns to India determined to show his grandfather he is a changed man and to marry Mary, the love of his life. But, in his absence, things have changed; the old man now appears to be under the control of the scheming Pinto who will not let Mickey near him. And Thomas has fallen in love with Mary... Meanwhile the hapless Joseph loses all his money in a Ponzi scheme. With his debtors closing in, murder seems to be the only way out...

While exploring a cave in Belize, Jack Flanders hears a voice calling his name. Deep within, he discovers a woman who appears to have risen up out of the cave floor. Her entire body is covered in tiny calcite crystals. Jack wonders, “Is she a Mayan goddess of the Underworld?” But then he wakes up.

Jack keeps having these dreams, being lost in a cave until finally in the jungles of Belize, he finds the cave he’s been dreaming about. And within, he discovers something even more extraordinary, the skulls of two crystal maidens. The words they whisper to him not only affect his future, but also the lives of those who hear his story.

I'm all about the growth mindset: the idea that you can always improve yourself and your work, and to me, nothing embodies that more than JIM ROBBIE AND THE WANDERERS, a constantly-evolving production that puts fun, ingenuity, and optimism where you'd never expect it: the apocalypse.

The world is different, scorched, sunk, and changed, but that doesn't really seem to bother our heroes, a wacky traveling band composed of two humans and a tin-can robot. Their off-kilter adventures take them through an America full of fairy queens, giant bees, and explosion-sports, and through it all, the show's commitment to surfacing minority perspectives, queer identities, and a cheerful attitude shine through.

Stick around after I play the revised first episode of Jim Robbie and the Wanderers, and you'll get to hear an interview with Iri and Laura, two members of the creative team behind the show. Then, I've got a Special Holidaytime Message for y'all.

Well, how to say this.
After 9 years, long-time RDR host Fred Greenhalgh passes the torch to incoming host David Rheinstrom. We take a moment to reflect on the amazing journey - 450 hours of entertainment! - in RDR's first nine years, and focus on the great state of current audio drama, and the future ahead of it.
Why David? Well, David is a writer and game maker who was living in Chicago before the cool salt air of the Pacific was too alluring and he came out to Mountain View, CA, home of Google and their army of Schwinn bikes. He first got into radio theater in 2007, when he and two friends produced three original shows – Sky Pirates!, The Human Chord, and Simon Colt – with the KWUR Theater of the Air, their college radio theater company. For his day job, David works as a grammarian at an education nonprofit in the San Francisco Bay area.
