Introducing: Dirt

Introducing: Dirt

2023-11-2429:261

Hey listeners, Laurence here! We hope you enjoyed the Mockery S3 finale and we'll have more surprises for you very soon. In the meantime, we'd like to introduce another Fable and Folly show that we really love - Dirt: An Audio Drama. Dirt is set in modern day Washington state, and it follows Joseph Elo, a Seattle-based tech celebrity who one day receives a mysterious letter in the mail from his grandfather—who died 30 years ago.The letter contains vague clues about the need to find things that may be hidden in various locations.As Joseph becomes more interested, he struggles to maintain a balance between his newfound obsession and his work responsibilities, and ultimately has to decide what he wants to do with the rest of his life. This is a really interesting story - essentially an earthbound mystery, but with hints of the fantastical as well. To me it feels very literary: something about the first person narration, the slow delve into Joseph's past and all the family lore, the slight sense of the surreal mingling with some really fun comedy moments - it all feels like a novel that you can't put down. It's a long form, slow burn mystery, and the more time you put into it, the more hooked you'll get. And by the end of the first episode, you know you'll have to keep listening to find out where this bizarre treasure hunt is going to lead.  And speaking as a Brit, it really makes me want to go and visit the Pacific northwest.  Tap this link to subscribe to Dirt - An Audio Drama And now, sit back and go and a mad adventure into Dirt - An Audio Drama. This is chapter 1. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
We're delighted to be bringing you one of our long-time favourite audio dramas - the wild and wonderful science-fantasy-western Midst. But before that, we sat down with the show's three mysterious creators Xen, Sara and Matt, to have a good old chat about the making of both Midst and Mockery Manor! We've been fans of each others' shows from their very beginnings, and it was such a pleasure to finally meet them. A little about Midst: The small desert planet of Midst spins on the border between two halves of the cosmos: the dazzling Un and the mysterious Fold. Life is simple for most of the planet’s inhabitants… until an influential civilization known as the Trust takes an interest in Midst and sparks an unexpected chain of events, intertwining the lives of three complicated antiheroes. Also, unrelated to any of that, Midst’s moon is about to fall out of the sky and cause reality to eat itself alive, so that’s not great either. Unsolved murders, cult brainwashing, and supernatural darkness all combine to create a clusterfuck of cosmic proportions. As always, you can find Midst wherever you get your podcasts. New Episodes of Midst release every Wednesday on your favorite podcast streaming platform, the Critical Role YouTube Channel, and for subscribers on Midst.co Subscribe to Midst Support Lindsay and Laurence on Ko-fi!

Another recommend from us! Today, we're bringing you World Gone Wrong, a fictional chat show about friendship at the end of the world. Malik and Jamie were roommates when the world ended. Now separated by half the country, literal acid rain, werewolves, aliens, and more, they start a chat podcast to stay in touch and work through the increasing uncertainty of their new apocalyptic reality. Each week, Malik & Jamie will tackle topics like: should I change my office hours to accommodate vampire students? What if the body snatcher that took over my ex is nice? When did the kudzu start humming like that? Malik & Jamie will try to help! Subscribe to World Gone Wrong anywhere you get your podcasts. Malik: Michael Turrentine Jamie: Hilary Williams Written by Jessica Best, directed and edited by Jeffrey Nils Gardner. Our theme song is "Falling in Love at the End of the World" by Olivia and the Lovers. Created and produced by Eleanor Hyde and Jeffrey Nils Gardner. From Audacious Machine Creative.

Hey everyone, Laurence here, and we've got another recommendation for you! We'd like to introduce you to Josie's Lonely Hearts Club - a semi-improvised audio drama set in the studio of New Mexico’s 3rd-best romantic advice call-in show. On-air, listeners eavesdrop as Josie squares off against top improvisers and her engineer Frank. Each episode’s off-air vignettes chart her journey from melancholy Joanne Holtzinger to nationally syndicated sensation Josie Heller. What results is an often hilarious and surprisingly human show exploring the risks we idiots take every time we fall in or out of love. It's a really lovely vibe, this show. The performers slip between the scripted and improvised sections so seamlessly that it all just feels so believable, like it was meant to be. This is a cosy late-night drive time listen if there ever was one.  Season 1 of Josie's Lonely Hearts Club is out in its entirety and Season 2 is releasing weekly right now. You can find it wherever you get your podcasts or by tapping the link in the show notes of this episode. And now here's episode 1 of Josie's Lonely Hearts Club, called: Let's Jam It Up, Sluts!  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
Today we'd like to introduce you to: The Road Of Shadows. The Road of Shadows is a mystery and suspense audio drama about a man who finds himself on the run in a small town in the mountains, pursued by mysterious creatures that only he can see. It's set in 1984, so if you like the retro vibe of S1 of Mockery Manor, this has some of the same flavour. We're in a small mountain town community, so it's got that wonderful, Twin Peaks / X Files style eeriness that's just always so much fun.  It's a beautifully made show, great music and sound design, and it comes to you from Beyond The Dark Productions, who also make The Strata, a wonderful dystopian sci-fi which you may also enjoy.  There are two full seasons out now, and you can find it wherever you get your podcasts, or, as usual, by tapping the link in the show notes. And now here's episode 1 of The Road of Shadows, called Misty Pines. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Previously on Mockery Manor: JJ is caught in the park after hours by Manager Norton, but fools him into thinking she's Bette - her twin sister. Meanwhile Parker investigates a high-pitched scream, and finds a terrified Matty cowering in a supply cupboard, having seen "a big cat". Parker leaves him, laughing, and bumps into Emma, who has Sonia's bracelet in her possession (which everyone thinks JJ has stolen) and he takes it from her. Parker then realises Matty is right: Winnie, a cougar kept by Margot in secret, has escaped. Parker tracks Winnie to the Heart of Darkness ride, and finds her eating the body of Nick, the caretaker. Horrified, Parker calls Jenkins, whose suspicions are now confirmed. People are being murdered in the park... again. In this episode: the park is now open! A frustrated JJ is determined to get some answers... and more blood is shed. For full info and credits, visit www.longcatmedia.com/mockery-manor Enjoying the series?

At that moment, Sonia, who is dressed as Queen Booboos, falls hard from the top of a parade float. In this episode: JJ learns that she may be at Mockery Manor for a reason, and Bette is pushed to breaking point. Follow @MockeryManor and @LongCatMedia on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for more info.

Meanwhile, a terrified and dishevelled Bette reappears in the park. The twins are reunited, and Bette tells JJ that Manager Norton abducted and drugged her.

Meanwhile, Margot's mother Dorothy has appeared, and Jenkins explains that Janet (Dorothy's daughter, Margot's sister and the twins' aunt) is the latest in a series of murders at the park, which appear to be connected. Back in the tunnels, Bette recognises Norton with his arm around Janet in the old photo, and Parker agrees to cover for the twins to allow Bette to escape.

The penniless Dorothy had seen an opportunity for her daughter, and made the switch. However, mere moments after revealing this, Dorothy is stabbed to death before JJ's eyes...

This show is a joy to listen to. Which is an odd thing to say about a murder mystery, I know! Exquisitely produced. Incredibly well-acted. And just the right amount of absurdity.

Fun story, easy one to binge. Spooky, macabre storyline but it's told with humour so it isn't actually scary. Voice actors and sound effects add colour and life to the script. Well done to all involved!
