MBC Presents: Mystery Science Theater 3000 (Part 1 of 2)

Joel, Trace and I did a panel at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago a few weeks ago. Here is part 1 of a very scholarly discussion about the silly stuff we used to do on the television thingy…

Episode 2 of Podhouse 90, my anthology series of original radio plays, is finally here! South by South Satan is another full-length musical comedy extravaganza, and once again I’ve assembled an amazing cast  Dana Gould (as Satan!), J. Elvis Weinstein, Emily Maya Mills, Laraine Newman, Emo Philips, David Higgins, Janie Haddad Tompkins, Ron Lynch, Joe Keyes, Jimmy Dore, Stefane Zamorano, Kipleigh Brown, Mark Thompson and Yours Truly. With songs by Tony Conniff and myself, and great production work by Thomas Chan. And it’s all FREE! Please give a listen, thanks!

An in-depth interview. With me!

The script for the next episode of Podhouse 90, my anthology series of original radio plays, is written and will be going into production in the new year. In the meantime, the first Podhouse 90 episode, The Wonderful Pundits of Oz, a musical comedy, is still available and it’s still FREE, so it would make for a perfect Christmas present, especially if you’re a cheap bastard (although I don’t quite know exactly how you’d gift-wrap a digital download). But if you just listen to it, you will be giving me a present, because I am so delighted with how hilarious the cast is in this production that I want everyone to hear it, and I am quite certain you will enjoy it.

I am not making an outlandish claim about the entertainment value of this offering, considering that the cast consists of Dana Gould, Emo Philips, Laraine Newman, Dave “Gruber” Allen, David Higgins, J. Elvis Weinstein, Joe Keyes, Mark Thompson, Janie Haddad Tompkins and Melissa Villasenor. Plus there’s music by Tony Conniff, musicianship by Gary Stockdale, and fine production work from Thomas Chan.

It was a happy experience making this thing and it will make me happy if you give it a listen. Happy Holidays!

The Wonderful Pundits of Oz, the first episode of my scripted anthology radio play series, Podhouse 90, is now available on iTunes. An amazing cast – Melissa Villasenor, Dave “Gruber” Allen, David Higgins, J. Elvis Weinstein, Dana Gould, Emo Philips, Laraine Newman, Mark Thompson, Janie Haddad Tompkins, Joe Keyes, and Yours Truly. And it’s free!
