The Pocket Radio Theater Presents: The Bootleggers
It is March 1921. After the U.S. Congress passes the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution, the sale and import of alcoholic beverages becomes a FELONY. The amendment does nothing to slack the thirst of a nation in the grips of the excesses of the JAZZ AGE, however, and an entire generation of CRIMINALS, LOW-LIFES, CHARLATANS, and RAKEHELLS rises to meet the challenge of supplying that thirst. THE BOOTLEGGERS follows two ROCHESTER rumrunners as they smuggle booze across Lake Ontario in an old sailboat while avoiding the LAW, the GANGSTERS, the WOMEN’S CHRISTIAN TEMPERANCE UNION, and the occasional GREAT LAKE SQUALL.

I started a radio theater troupe a while back and have been releasing podcasts for a few months now. The current serial is about a pair of bootleggers running Canadian whiskey across Lake Ontario in an old sailboat called the Hardly Able (the third episode is the best if you only have time for one). We also release one-off radio dramas that have nothing to do with bootlegging - the latest one is about a Demon buying the souls of undergrads. New episodes on the 15th of each month. Feedback on the story and audio quality would be much appreciated.
