Episode 442 – Going Deep with Gabriel and David: The Thing on the Fourble Board


This week, Gabriel Urbina, writer and director of Wolf 359, joins me for a segment we’re calling “Going Deep”; together, the two of us investigate one of Gabriel’s favorite classic audio dramas, 1948’s “The Thing on the Fourble Board” from Quiet, Please.  It takes place on an oil derrick: the fourble board is the deck that comes up to the height of a quadruple-length of drill-pipe.  You’ll see what I mean.

We play the feature, and then Gabriel and I take it apart, piece by piece, trying to unlock precisely what it is that makes “The Thing on the Fourble Board” so damn spooky.

    Great conversation. Radio drama is the height of entertainment for me. Nice to hear other enthusiasts.
