Hey, I have a website! Almost forgot about that.
Hello again, Electric Theatregoers. My apologies for the long absence between posts. And I apologize also for returning with a blatant piece of self-promotion. But the long absence is partially explained by what I’m promoting, so I hope that helps.
Most of you who have found your way to the Electric Theatre probably know me from my work over at Bill Hunt’s The Digital Bits. But my reviews and what-not are really just a small part of my writing output. Over the last couple of years, I have dipped my toes into the new/old world of audio drama with Tribulation.
We started Tribulation as a podcast back in 2017. The first season picked up a bit of a cult following and some great reviews in the podcasting community, enough to attract the attention of Audible. They picked us up for a second season and, this past October, Tribulation was reborn as an Audible Original!
Audible put a lot of faith in our little show, going so far as to cast Josh Charles in the role of Magus. You may know Josh from his roles on Sports Night, The Good Wife and/or Netflix’s continuation of the Wet Hot American Summer franchise, absolutely none of which will prepare you for his performance here as a demented cult leader who thrives on pain and suffering. The entire cast (including Lauren Revard, Eric Goins, Tom Clark, Janet Metzger, Trevor Goble, Kate Kovach, and Hannah Pniewski) is first-rate. Acting for audio is a unique challenge and I’m in awe of their talents.
Tribulation is available now exclusively on Audible. If you’re already a member, you can use one of your monthly credits to check it out. If you’re not, they’ve got a free 30-day trial. I hope you’ll give it a listen and, if you enjoy it, please consider leaving us a review. These things really do help a lot.
Anyway, that’s the end of my sales pitch. The Electric Theatre will be back sooner rather than later with the usual mix of whatever it is we do here.
