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.

Paul is away on a critical mission and John is left behind at the OSI building.  Since security is so lax there, John was able to access Oscar's files and he discovered some interesting information.

 

First, he presents another Christmas adventure that Steve was engaged in with Santa Claus.

 

Next, he plays some music that was inspired by The Six Million Dollar Man.

 

Finally, he tells the story of how Jaime and Steve once met Santa Claus in his take of "Twas the Night Before Christmas".

 

It's a holiday themed Critical Assignment and we hope you and yours have a happy holiday.

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.

Meet Z NATION‘s “Doctor of the Dead” in their action-packed Season 1 finale! That’s right, the big wrap-up to a year of new zombie TV excitement shares OUR show name, and the Doctor himself (no, not that one, THIS one) joins Scott in a BUMPER length episode to chat about this wonderful coincidence as well as how far Z NATIONhas come in just 13 episodes. Will a detour to Colorado spell the end of our little survivors’ group? Will any of them make it out alive from the ‘Hall of Horrors?’ Will we ever see Mack and Addy again? And will Murphy emerge as the King of the Zombies at last?

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"Before this interview I knew nothing about knitting which is why I was so excited to conduct it. Nine years ago this week, Sammi Kat out of New Orleans, LA, picked up the hobby of knitting and he’s never looked back. Sammi was going through a particular rough patch and while convalescing from surgery, he took up knitting to keep himself busy and sane. With a chill in the air this time of year, Sammi’s knitting stories are here to warm you up like a comforting glass of port.

In Episode 23 of the Express, Sammi tells us all about his journey which is an inspiring reminder that creative endeavors can be a great antidote to many of life’s woes. He also has stories about who the knitting community is – hint: it’s not just the stereotype of old ladies on sofas. A lot of mold was broken when Sammi was made. He’s one of my most outspoken and unique friends and I’m delighted he took time for this very fun & informative listen. Enjoy."

The Joker is back in Gotham City and his latest crime spree involves keys of all types.  But there doesn't seem to be any real pattern to the Joker's scheme, even when he develops a box that allows him to control time.  Can Batman and Robin unlock the mystery of this case or will it be too much even for them?

Teryl Rothery

Teryl Rothery (born November 9, 1962) is a Canadian actress. She is best known for her role as Dr. Janet Fraiser on Stargate SG-1.

Rothery first became interested in a performing career when she danced in the musical, Bye Bye Birdie, at the age of thirteen.

Rothery knew that she belonged in front of the camera when she played in the CBC halloween special, Boo, at the age of eighteen. In her teens, being a talented dancer, singer and musician, she was a performer on a North Vancouver-shot TV variety show starring Tom Jones. She is best known for her starring role of Dr. Janet Fraiser on Stargate SG-1, which she played from the show's beginning in 1997 through 2004 (and again as a guest appearance in 2006).

Rothery has appeared in many other sci-fi series, including The X-Files; The Outer Limits; First Wave; Stargate SG-1; Jeremiah; M.A.N.T.I.S.; Kyle XY; Eureka and many others. She played a small role in the Babylon 5 direct-to-DVD movie, Voices in the Dark, as ISN Reporter, Ms. Chambers. She played Lenore Molee in the 1994 TV movie, For the Love of Nancy; and has also done voice acting work. In 2010, she was on the Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, as Evelyn (the mother of Battlestar Galactica's Admiral William Adama). Her most recent work has been her role in A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner!, where she plays Mrs. Turner (Timmy Turner's mom). The movie premiered July 9, 2011, at 8 pm (ET/PT), on Nickelodeon. This was followed by A Fairly Odd Christmas on November 29, 2012.

Most recently, Rothery has been acting in theater in her native Vancouver — appearing in Kiss Me, Kate and The Taming of the Shrew in March 2006. In March 2007 she appeared in A Delicate Balance, a play by Edward Albee, for which she was nominated for a Jessie Richardson Theatre Award.

Rothery starred in the Canadian premiere of Good Boys and True, written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and directed by Jeff Hyslop. The play ran at the Firehall Arts Centre in Vancouver in 2009.

Rothery has been nominated for four Leo Awards. In 2004 she was nominated in two categories: Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series for the Stargate SG-1 episode "Lifeboat", and Best Guest Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series on The Collector.[4] In 2008 she was nominated in the category: Best Performance by a Female in a Short Drama for her work in the short film Coffee Diva.[5] In 2009 she was nominated in the category: Best Supporting Performance by a Female in a Dramatic Series for the episode "Sound of Loneliness" from The Guard.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"It’s always scary whenever a screenwriter thinks of the production executive who will oversee their script. But M. Dal Walton III joins me for Episode 22 to tell you why screenwriters have nothing to fear. Dal has served for years as production executive guiding movies such as “Narc”, “Once Fallen”, “16 Blocks” and “Righteous Kill.” Dal tells us about how a production executive is there to help a script become the best movie possible. Yes, it’s true – they’re actually on the screenwriter’s side!

Dal has also worked as a manager for years and goes into detail about the manager/screenwriter relationship. Dal is now moving to the other side of the desk becoming a director and writer himself. Having seen many changes in the business over the years, Dal gives some great observations about why this is one of the best times to be screenwriter or director in Hollywood. An invaluable and experienced source of how it works inside a production company, Dal is very generous here with his insight. This interview is helpful to screenwriters everywhere whatever their skill level. Grab a pen, take some notes and enjoy."

This December I’m going to run all Christmas-themed shows.  We begin with another episode of Fibber McGee and Molly.  This episode is nearly 70 years old, but we see that some things never change.  Fibber and Molly have to go to the post office to mail off some Christmas presents, and the lines were just as long and annoying then as they still are today.  Then Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson recounts another of The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  It’s Christmas Eve and the good Doctor has agreed to dress up as Santa Claus (uh, Father Christmas) for a children’s party.  Will Holmes get to spend a quiet evening at home?  Not on your Fezziwig . . .

Robert Picardo (born October 27, 1953) is an American actor. He is best known for his portrayals of Dr. Dick Richards on ABC's China Beach, the Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH), also known as The Doctor, on UPN's Star Trek: Voyager, The Cowboy in Innerspace, Coach Cutlip on The Wonder Years (where he received an Emmy nomination), Ben Wheeler in Wagons East, and as Richard Woolsey in the Canadian-American military science fiction television series Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe.

Robert Picardo (nickname: Bob) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the son of Joe Picardo. Robert is of Italian heritage, with his father's family originating from Montecorvino Rovella, Salerno and his mother's parents originally from Bomba in Abruzzo. Picardo claims that one of the highlights of his life was visiting both ancestral towns with his daughters and his brother Joe in the summer of 2011. He graduated from William Penn Charter School in 1971 and originally entered Yale University as a pre-medical student, but opted to act instead. He ended up graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Drama from Yale University. Picardo is an accomplished singer. While he was at Yale University, he was a member of The Society of Orpheus and Bacchus, the second longest running undergraduate a cappella group in the United States. After his degree, he enrolled at the Circle in the Square Professional Theater Workshop.

He waited tables for a few of years until his theatrical work started to take off around 1976. His first break was appearing in the David Mamet play Sexual Perversity in Chicago,and with Diane Keaton in The Primary English Class.In 1977, he made his Broadway debut. He appeared in Gemini (1977) and Tribute (1978). During the 1988-1991 television seasons, Picardo was simultaneously seen on the ABC Vietnam series China Beach in the role of Dr. Dick Richard, as well as the ABC series The Wonder Years in the role of Coach Cutlip, and is among a small group of television actors to achieve notice on two television series at the same time.

Picardo made his feature film debut as Eddie Quist, the serial killer werewolf in the Joe Dante film The Howling (1981). He also had a recurring role in the sitcom Alice. He played a number of roles in Dante's family science fiction film Explorers (1985), and later appeared in Dante's The 'Burbs, Looney Tunes: Back in Action, Matinee, Gremlins 2: The New Batch, Small Soldiers and Innerspace as the Cowboy.

He voices Pfish in two Pfish & Chip shorts as seen on Cartoon Network's What-A-Cartoon! Show. Picardo also portrays the voice of the robotic Johnny Cab in Total Recall. He appeared in one episode of ER in 1995 as Abraham Zimble (Season 2 - Episode 6 "Days Like This"). In the early 1990s, Picardo had a brief role as Joe "The Meat Man" Morton, a butcher and neighbor to Tim Allen's character on the popular sitcom Home Improvement.

From 1995 to 2001, he played the role of the Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH) and Emergency Command Hologram (ECH) in the television series Star Trek: Voyager. Before being accepted for this role, Picardo initially auditioned for the role of Neelix.[5] He later also directed two episodes. He also played additional versions of the role of the EMH in the 1996 motion picture Star Trek: First Contact and the 1997 Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode "Doctor Bashir, I Presume?". In 2001, he guest starred in 7 Days episode "Revelation", purporting to be a time traveler from seven years in the future.

In 2004, he began playing the recurring role of International Oversight Advisory (IOA) member Richard Woolsey in both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis, where he became a regular in the fifth season. His first appearance in those series was in the Stargate SG-1 episode "Heroes (Part 2)". In 2007, he played Principal White in Ben 10: Race Against Time. In 2007, he starred in the independent feature film by director Russ Emanuel, "P.J.", alongside John Heard and Vincent Pastore.[6] He also more recently starred in Russ Emanuel's "Chasing the Green" (2008), alongside William Devane, Jeremy London and Ryan Hurst.

He also appeared as a recurring guest star in two episodes of Season 7 of Smallville.

 

Away from acting, Picardo is a member of the Board of Directors' Advisory Council of The Planetary Society, where he has served since the late 1990s. In 2002, Picardo authored the book The Hologram's Handbook, published by Pocket Books. Other career highlights include performing in Leonard Bernstein's Mass in D during its European debut tour, performing with the Yale University Society of Orpheus & Bacchus a cappella singing group as an undergraduate, and appearing in dozens of other television and film roles, including the film Our Last Days as Children. On February 5, 2008, it was announced that Picardo would be joining the regular cast of Stargate Atlantis full-time for the series' fifth and final season. He will be taking over the role of mission commander of the Atlantis Expedition. Recently, Picardo performed the voice of Loki in the Xbox 360 video game Too Human. In 2009, he also appeared in Pushing Daisies, Chuck and Castle. Also in 2009, he played the lead role in the independent psychological thriller film Sensored.

Here's how Tim describes this episode:

"We kick off December with Episode 21 of the HTD Express. Simone Bailly is an actress who’s worked across many genres in television and film. You’ve seen her in recent sci-fi icons like “Stargate: SG-1,” “Battlestar Galactica” and “Smallville.” But she’s also appeared in dramas like “The L-Word” as well as a new independent feature about modern romance “Life Partners” alongside Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl) and Gillian Jacobs (Community). This being the digital age, you can rent “Life Partners” on itunes right now but it also opens in theatres this Friday, December 5th, 2014.

Simone has experienced the acting industry in both Vancouver and Los Angeles. She shares with us an actor’s perspective on how to approach character. For screenwriters everywhere, this conversation offers a new angle of looking at your scripts. Simone tells us exactly what goes through the mind of the person who is handed a script and tasked with bringing characters to life. We also talk about the pros and cons of taking risks to stand out from the crowd. There’s a lot of insight in here about how close acting and screenwriting actually are. Enjoy."
