FLASH FORWARD EP 18: REVENGE OF THE RETWEET

FLASH FORWARD EP 18: REVENGE OF THE RETWEET

It’s risky to let me be on a show about politics, but I got to be a guest voice on Flash Forward again, and it was fully scripted, so you can listen with confidence.

In case you still haven’t given Rose Eveleth a try, her show poses a question about the future, attempts to act out a bit of what that future would be like, and then uses the thoughts of relevant thinkers to debate the proposed situation. Rose does a great job of keeping it interesting and fun, and I recommend giving it a try.

Flash Forward, again

Flash Forward Season 2, Episode 17: THE ALTERED STATE

I had the privilege of being a guest voice on Flash Forward again.

In case you didn’t immediately run out to catch me on there before, I’ll remind you it’s a show that weekly poses a question about the future, attempts to act out a bit of what that future would be like, and then uses the thoughts of relevant thinkers to debate the proposed situation. Rose Eveleth does a great job of keeping it interesting and fun, and I recommend giving it a try.

Flash Forward season 2, episode 9

I had the privilege of being a guest voice in a skit on a podcast I’ve listened to since its beginning — Flash Forward. It’s a show that weekly poses a question about the future, attempts to act out a bit of what that future would be like, and then uses the thoughts of relevant thinkers to debate the proposed situation. Rose Eveleth does a great job of keeping it interesting and fun, and I recommend giving it a try.

RELEASED: Mr. Hill’s Death on Pseudopod

Man, it seems like forever since I’ve done a narration for Pseudopod, and it’s always such a pleasure.

If you’ve got 20ish minutes and can stomach a modern tale that would make Bradbury smile, this is a good one to check out. And if you do, be sure to join and visit their Facebook group and give it a LIKE or pop into the forum and express your thoughts to other audience members.

PseudoPod 474: Mr. Hill’s Death

RELEASED: Victoria season finale

I have a habit of taking parts that are either the stars of the show or die in one episode. That’s why playing Lt. Booth on Victoria: Empress of the Universe has been a treat. He doesn’t take days to record, but he gets to appear regularly, and I get to pretend I  can believably portray a British accent. It’s a fun ride, and a very Burroughs-esque story. So if you’re into old-timey radio sci-fi, give Victoria a try.

Story Synopsis
This is the Season Finale! All the events so far have led to this huge 40 minute climactic conclusion!

RELEASED: Elixir

If this wasn’t a Jeff Niles/Viktor Aurelius production, this would sound strange. But…well..it is…

It’s the late 19th century in America and Utah seems to be experiencing a bit of a vampire problem. My character is a frontier-era Bible salesman with a foot fetish and dim prospects for making it into a sequel.

I’ll leave it at that. You can get more information and listen to the audio drama here:

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: my reading of Eater of Bone on Escape Pod

Eater of Bone by Robert Reed

Eater of Bone by Robert Reed

Escape Pod has never done a novella that I can recall, but it was a pleasure trying out some super-long-form reading on Robert Reed‘s Eater of Bone. It’s kind of what Planet of the Apes might have been if it followed Nova instead of Taylor, and instead of meeting astronauts recently arrived from the past, Nova met an astronaut that had been there for thousands of years.

Okay, my analogy may be more confusing than the actual plot, so how ’bout you just take my word for it that it’s a good one and you go check out both parts of the four hour audio novella linked here:

PART 1: http://escapepod.org/2014/04/05/ep442a-eater-bone/

PART 2: to release 4/10/2014

RELEASED: Minor role in Victoria! Empress of the Universe

Victoria! Empress of the Universe

Victoria! Empress of the Universe by 4077th Productions

Victor’s at it again, and if you’ve listened to my work in his productions before, you know he does some high-quality audio production. If you haven’t listened before, you need to go back and listen to all of these outstanding episodes. Now. Do it now!

The synopsis for episode 4: The Empty Space Ship…
Massing in the Martian Desert are hundreds of Venusian soldiers having escaped from the wreckage of their Spaceship, Doctor Watson is still trying to deal with the loss of his friend Sherlock Holmes, while in a Canyon below the Martian Palace a forgotten Robot named Clancy will be thrust into a perilous adventure!
