Episode 206 – On a Twilight Zone “Walkabout,” and Talk with Carl Amari

Twilight Zone Radio Dramas

We conclude our three-week run of episodes from the magnificent and long-running Twilight Zone radio dramas.

This week we shy away from the holiday-oriented programming and join a hack writer on the hunt for alien abductees in the story “The Walkabout.” But this researcher may soon find himself the subject of his book, not the writer…

Followed by an interview with producer Carl Amari, founder of Radio Spirits and now producer with plenty of stripes. We talk about getting the rights to produce this series, his word-for-word dramatization of the Bible and thoughts on the changing landscape of radio drama.

    48 GO GREEN
    The Ultimate International Eco Film Fest
    The Film competition To Save The Planet!

    48 Go Green is a 48-hour short film festival with a difference. With the power to inspire and to change the world, 48 Go Green was born out of the creativity of the world’s filmmakers, the passion of its story-tellers and the immediate need to save our environment.
    Anyone, anywhere on earth can enter and be a part of one of the biggest global film festivals of 2011. All you need is a camera, a can-do attitude and a spark of creativity and you could find yourself attending the prestigious screening of your VERY OWN film at Cannes Short Film Corner and the NAB Show in Las Vegas!
    48 Go Green is brought to you by executive producer Francesco Vitali & producer Christos Siametis in association with the founders of the 48 Hour Film Project, Mark Ruppert and Liz Langston. The 48 Go Green has joined forces with the original 48 Hour Film Project to bring a unique and inspirational opportunity to ecologically-minded film enthusiasts around the globe. Inspired by our planet’s natural beauty and the creativity and passion of filmmakers around the world what better way to explore the environmental challenges we face than to channel that adrenaline, enthusiasm and intense creativity into powerful and thought-provoking short films?
    Also at stake is a total of $15,000 of prize money to the winning filmmakers who will have their films screened at Cannes International Film Festival in the prestigious Short Film Corner and at the Las Vegas NAB show from April 9th – 14th 2011.
    First place offers a cash prize of $5,000 with $2,000 going to the runner up and $1,000 for third place filmmakers.
    The top 16 films will be prestigiously screened at the Las Vegas NAB show.
    This year there will be no committee of judges. Instead the public will vote on their favourite film in the competition.
    Message from Executive Producer Francesco Vitali:
    “We want your film to be loved by the people who love films, by people like you who know how to pick up a camera, by colleagues who themselves write scripts, or who themselves have collaborated in any way on the completion of a film, or at very least by people who are fans of films in general. The public has emotions and the instinct as it has the responsibility of its opinion.”
    “So what are you waiting for? Assemble your team of creatives, your camera-equipped eco-warriors and prepare to make a stand against the destruction of our planet by creating the most powerful cinematic message, a 48 Go Green Short Film!

    Terribly rude of me to ask, I’m sure, but where are the “free downloads” of which YOU SPOKE (you said it, I didn’t) in my Google search? I come here, type “download” into my “find” pane, and the word is nowhere to be found on any page, well, except an interview of some sort, not on my list of potential great bedtime stories. So where y’all hidin’ those? I’d like to download some, please. Thank you.

    Hey Carly! Sorry it’s not more intuitive. This is a podcast-style show, every episode is downloadable. There is an archive of everything we’ve ever done (going back to 2007 – 400+ shows) if you click on “Mondo Archives” link at the top. We don’t currently offer a way to get ALL the shows automatically in one big download package… though that would be kinda cool. We’re optimized to be subscribed to as a podcast but for folks who just want to download MP3s and listen on their own time, we’d love feedback as to the most convenient way to offer the programs.
