Episode 256: A Swashbuckling Embarcation of the Holiday Season

Count of Monte Christo Radio DramaOK, so we’re not quite edging into what would be traditionally called “Holiday Programming” here, but we do have a wonderful treat – the swashbuckling classic The Count of Monte Christo by Alexander Dumas, dramatized for you by Lifehouse Theatre on the Air.

With origins in California-based community theatre, LifeHouse Theater On-The-Air is a new effort to create dynamic audio drama to entertain and educate audiences of all ages and walks of life. They produce classic stories from literature, history, the Bible, and the biographies of quotable notables. Visit their website for over a half-dozen exciting titles.

In Count, we meet Edmond Dantes, a naïve youth whose promise to his dying mentor sends him to stony imprisonment on the Isle of Monte Christo.

First up, a delicious Captain Radio review of the fantastic (in the truest sense of the word) Fruits Baskets radio drama based on the manga.
