After two and a half years of work -- recording and editing some 300 hours of audio with dozens of actors -- I have started releasing the second season of my audio drama. Nineteen episodes (including a forthcoming seven part epic set between 1994 and 2023), 120 speaking roles, and I wrote nearly a thousand pages. The series involves parallel universes, wisecracking demons, revolutionaries, exuberant aliens fond of American nostalgia, and, above all, an examination of love and empathy.
I've listened to podcasts ever since it required hunting Podcast Pickle, and love meta shows which repurpose audio (the defunct Ask Mr Biggs comes to mind) so I spent a few hours trying out an idea I've had rattling around: I've spliced together all 2018 welcomes/thanks of guests on CBC:s Quirks and Quarks podcast into a 15 minute thing.

Fans of Lost, Twin Peaks and old time radio will enjoy the Post-Meridian Radio Players' newly completed series, "The Mask of Inanna". It's been called "a fascinating hybrid of a modern story with mystic overtones (reminiscent of Twin Peaks or the more fantastical tales of Stephen King), coupled with a beautifully-done 'show within a show' pastiche of classic old time radio". It's twelve episodes with months of production work per episode and a cast of over thirty. Please check us out! [more inside]
