“Talk me out of this”

That was the email I sent to Aaron Sinclair and Jerod Brennen in July of 2015. I knew Jerod and Aaron through Columbus’ indie movie scene, but this pitch was different: No lights. No cameras. Just action.

I’ve been a fan of old-time radio since I was in high school, getting cassette tapes of The Shadow and Humphrey Bogart’s Bold Venture. I’ve been listening to old-time radio on podcast for a year or so when someone turned me on to Welcome to Night Vale and Our Fair City, two contemporary series.

What I’m saying is it took me a long time to get the idea we could do it ourselves.

Anyway:We have a wealth of talented performers in this town, and our pledge to you is a fun time, every time out. If you like what we’re doing, please like, share or subscribe – or just tell us about it. We’d love to hear from you.

And, as always, Lights Out rules apply: If you wish to avoid the tension of these imaginative plays, we urge you – calmly and sincerely – to X out of your podcast app … now.
