OK, well the Guiness might actually be starting to run out of your system by the time you hear this, but we couldn’t help but raise a cheer for our favorite Dublin-based audio artist this week – Roger Gregg – by replaying some of his excellent work with Crazy Dog Audio Theatre.
So, we got a double feature – first, from Crazy Dog Live, “Ferdia the Druid,” about a druid con artist who gets in over his head when he is send to investigate REAL fairy folken. Followed by the first episode of The Apocalypse of Bill Lizard, a surrealist adventure into the Irish subconscious care of a sexy demon.
Also, Captain Radio is back on the beat with a review of Audie-award nominated radio drama original, “William’s Leap for Freedom” about abolitionist author Wells Brown, who was born a slave in Lexington, Kentucky in 1814.
Throughout his lifetime, Brown was a fugitive slave, a conductor on the Underground Railroad, an abolitionist, an anti-slavery lecturer, an historian, a medical doctor, and a poet. For only $5 you can grab the entire MP3 on ZBS: http://www.zbs.org/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=16_57&products_id=414 . Produced at National Audio Theatre Festivals’ 2010 workshop.
