Missing my friend Bill Hollweg

RELEASED: Jake Sampson: Monster Hunter : “The Horn of Valhalla” Episode 1

I’m no stranger to the Jake Sampson universe, I’ve been fortunate enough to appear in several episodes, probably most notably as Edgar Rice Burroughs in the Gods of War arc. My role in this series is significantly shorter. The good news, I’m the first voice you hear and I get the [sound]stage all to myself for minutes. The bad news — I die a violent death by impaling in a scene from Night at the Museum Ben Stiller never acted out.

As always, Writer/Director/Producer Bill Hollweg does brilliant work in this super-pulpy old-time-radio-style series. If you haven’t listened to a Jake Sampson series before, you’ll want to give Jake Sampson: Monster Hunter : “The Horn of Valhalla” a try. And if you do like what you hear, make sure to listen back through the other series linked on the right side, especially Gods of War since I play a classic writer who gets tangled in a war on Mars! There’s some pretty epic fighting going on there.

RELEASED: Walk-on role on Beneath the Planet of the Apes

Beneath the Planet of the Apes, episode 10

My man Bill Hollweg has some issues when it comes to Planet of the Apes. He’s the kind of fan that writes fan fic to supplement the original story, and he couldn’t be more true to it if he were actually living in that universe. So when he asked me to be “Mutant Guard 1” I didn’t ask any details, I just said “Send me the script,” because I knew it would be well done.

If you’re interested at all, it’s worth going back through the archives to get the whole story. But if you’re on the fence, I think listening to this episode will satisfy you that it’s worth it to dig deeper.

In this episode: In Ape City Ursus has assembled his Gorilla Army for WAR with the MUTANTS… A discovery and it’s implications may well affect All futures and possibly ALL SIMIAN KIND!

It’s the bomb, as the kids said all those years ago.

RELEASED: Escape Pod’s Biographical Fragments of the Life of Julian Prince

Episode 424 of Escape Pod released late because it was a mammoth undertaking. I put a lot of production into this one in the hope of bringing the author’s vision to life. It misses in places, but I think to do much better would have required some adaptation and Escape Pod generally doesn’t do that.

The story is like a fictional scrapbook about a future character that gives voice to the human side of a massively destructive meteorite impact in North America. I attempted to produce it as if it were a lecture being taught at a college. My professor in the lecture was Heather Bowman-Tomlinson, who took this role on a very short term after the person I had initially scheduled backed out. I took the role of the title character, and we were supported by the uber-dependabale Bill Hollweg and Andrea Richardson who responded to my call for a voice actress able to do a French accent. Everybody performed fabulously, and fans will see these folks return as narrators in the future.

Please consider giving the episode a listen here:

RELEASED: 2109 Black Sun Rising [s01e01]

2109: Black Sun Rising

This is a Bill Hollweg scripted project for Broken Sea Audio, which may not mean much to you, but those who know him more closely know that he pours himself into his scripts and his production. This is the first arc of an all original pulp sci-fi audio drama adventure, and I have it on good authority that Bill put a lot of heart and soul into this one.

So it’s with great honor that I announce the release of the first episode of 2109: Black Sun Rising. If you listened to the prequel that I co-wrote with Bill, you heard my character, Dyllan Pike, lead the first mission out of our solar system and barely make it back alive. As his hobbled ship limped back home, his fiance was piloting another on the way out. And so opens the first season of 2109.

Please give it a listen and tell Bill what you think. I don’t want to hear what you think, but feel free to heap blind praise upon me. 😉  Seriously, I’m very proud of this and I think you’ll like it for what it is, and the potential for what it may become.
