Aired November 30/December 1, 1966

Shame is stealing automobiles only to abandon them sans one part to the vehicle.  What is his scheme and what strange ideas do John and Hidden Harbor Mysteries author Jay Smith cook up when they discuss this episode?  How about Batman working with the Nazi to find escaped POWs in Gotham?  How about the Joseph Campbell-esque journey of a young boy from villain to hero?  How about the lack of care and guidance parents had in the 60s?  It's all here and more on a new Batcave Podcast, just in time to send out 2014!

Jay Smith is the creator and executive producer for the Parsec Award-winning audio drama series HG World.  Since 2009, Jay and his company of players and producers have been telling the story of survivors in the middle of a global zombie uprising.  Now in its third season, this "satellite" production has featured dozens of actors across four continents making it a production truly on a global scale.  Since its debut, episodes of HG World and its spin-off series, the Parsec finalist The Diary of Jill Woodbine and The Googies have been downloaded close to a million times.

 

Inspired by the golden age of radio, Hidden Harbor Mysteries presents a story inspired by stylish pulp era radio adventures like The Shadow, Sam Spade, The Green Hornet, and I Love a Mystery. Performed by a stellar cast, Hidden Harbor hopes to integrate classic radio storytelling with some modern twists.  Jay draws from the work of Orson Welles, Arch Obelor and looks to modern audio dramatists like Douglas Adams and Dirk Maggs as inspiration to create a rich, realistic world of survival horror laced with dark comedy and compelling human drama.

 

Jay holds a BA in Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University and is working on his Master of Fine Arts from Seton Hill University’s innovative Writing Popular Fiction program.  He attends and speaks at various science fiction and literary conventions about podcasting, writing, audio drama, and zombies.  HG World can be heard by subscribing through iTunes or visiting the show web site www.goodmorningsurvivors.com.

Welcome to a new audio drama anthology series here on The Chronic Rift Network!  David Binkley is the producer and director of the WCRS Radio Stage program.  He has always loved old radio dramas so in 2000 when Written Communications Radio Service, a radio reading service for the blind, took their studios to digital he started preparing scripts that could relive those thrilling days of yesteryear. He assembled friends and volunteers and they laid down the voice tracks with sound effects and music inserted in post production. 

The thought was to produce a half hour drama a month.  An ambitious goal considering that there was NEVER a regular radio drama series EVER broadcast out of Akron, Ohio.  Over the next twenty-four months they were able to produce twenty-two stories,  After that they put together an occasional story - mostly at Christmas.

The Chronic Rift Network is pleased to present these episodes, one a month for your listening pleasure.  You will hear mysteries, horror stories, Christmas tales, science fiction, and more.  In addition, our own John S. Drew contributed stories to the series.  Listen for his "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Justin Case: Private Investigator" in the coming months.

What we have here is simply a sampling of what you can expect.  The first episode will roll out on New Year's Day with future installments at the first of the month.  We hope you'll enjoy listening.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"We’re in the midst of the holiday season and a big ticket item for many people is pets. There’s a lot to know before you decide to take an animal home and fortunately, Amy Reynolds is here to help us sift through that info. When Amy’s not working in post production for some of your favorite TV shows, she volunteers working with the Animal Shelter in Burbank. Helping shelter animals find the right home has become a passion for Amy for several years now.

This interview will tell not only how to find the right animal but also what you can do if you can’t adopt one at this time. There’s plenty of quick, easy and inexpensive ways that people can help our furry friends looking for a home. And it being the holidays, there are plenty of specials available for those of you in the market. Help spread the word about the knowledge that’s dropped here and let’s get some pets to the homes they belong in. Enjoy."

Aired November 23/24, 1966

Marsha, Queen of Diamonds has her sights on one of the largest diamonds in the world, The Bat-Diamond.  But the fabulous jewel is kept in the Batcave and Batman has sworn no stranger will ever set foot there.  (He did?  When did that happen?)  What to do?  Marsha figures it out; she traps Batman into marrying her.  How will the Caped Crusader get out of this most deadly predicament?

 

Joining John to discuss this completely messed up episode is longtime Batman 66 fan, Robert Long.
