    The Proper Thing To Do

    A few extra notes for this episode. We have big changes in store for this podcast. First, we have increased the sampling rate for this episode and for all future episodes.  When we started this podcast 10 years ago we purposely made the decision to encode each episode a lot lower than we needed to because the ultimate goal was to help people understand what audio drama was. We weren’t exactly the only game in town, but we were one of only a few audio drama companies that we knew about and what we wanted to do was draw attention to the art form and also let people know about our titles for sale. What better way than to have free samples? We also had years of live performances sitting around that didn’t meet our standards for sale, but were still something we were extremely proud of and didn’t want to keep to ourselves. Today the landscape has changed. There are dozens if not hundreds of audio drama podcasts out there. Anthologies and series, ongoing and one-offs, and at least one notable podcast about how to d

    We love all of our audiences and look forward to entertaining everyone, but some audiences have a special place in our hearts. 221B Con is one of them. Not least because we pack the house when we go there! [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Proof[/caption] It's such a ton of fun playing to these dedicated Sherlock Holmes fans. An iconic character, portayed by a variety of actors in a variety of ways, but without having to deal with all the time travel and blue police boxes. For this performance, we commissioned new scripts from Sketch MacQuinor. One was Commonplaces, by Naomi Novik (stay tuned to see if we can run that one on the podcast), and the other was The Game is Afoot: Game the Fourth - The Ultimate Ultimatum. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Pictured: A ton of fun[/caption] We also had a special guest for the show, David Nellist!

    We're really sorry we missed our normal publication time this month! Car trouble impeded our progress. But we're back on track now! EDIT: We forgot the link to the actual audio! It's here now! Those of you looking for it can find it now!

With music by The Ghosts Project, it was a really creepy experience.

We don't always have the luxury of special lighting at our live shows. At most of our convention appearances we usually just have the ballroom lights of the room we're performing in, so being abl

    Well, here we are. We made it. All the way through 4 parts of Lovecraftian horror and now we're...not quite ready for the Centauri Express to launch. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="332"] Hal Wiedeman is displeased[/caption] We were so looking forward to this being the last episode of the venerable, but generically named, ARTC's Podcast. But we just can't. We can't put forth something that's less than our best effort. We just can't do that to our listeners. So we're pushing back to August. We hope. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Paige Steadman has her doubts.[/caption] So we'll be carrying on in our usual fashion for just a couple more months. In the meantime, won't you consider supporting us on Patreon? We just posted a bunch of really cool milestone goals to help you know what your support will mean to us, and we're working on a short video to show how we're operating, too. All kinds of good stuff going on, so remember that you can set your own budget and hopefully you can see

    We're back and ready for another episode of ARTC's Podcast! This month, The Rats in the Walls-LIVE part 3 of 4, performed live at the Academy Theatre in October 2012. What else can we say about Lovecraft and The Rats in the Walls? Not much, really. I mean, it's creepy, it's awesome, it's classic horror. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="332"] Paige Steadman wants to know what you mean by "creepy".[/caption] So in this month's show notes, we're going to talk instead about what's coming up for the podcast. As we mention in the podcast itself, we're about to wind down on the show as you've known it for the last 10 years. We're shooting for a June launch, but we're perfectionists, so it might be July or August before we get this really ready, but when it gets moving it's going to be as hard to stop as a freight train. Which is fitting since it will be the Centauri Express Audio Magazine! What is the Centauri Express? It's whatever you want it to be! For one thing we'll be taking a step back from our

    So last month we brought you The Music of Erich Zann. This month we decided to keep the cosmic horror going. And why not? It's our 10th year of podcasting and our H. P. Lovecraft fans have been very good to us, so we'd like to be very good to them! This month we bring you The Rats in the Walls-LIVE by H. P. Lovecraft, adapted for audio by Brad Strickland, with music by The Ghosts Project, accompanied by Alton Leonard. This performance was part of our 2012 celebration, Lovecraft's Nightmares. And it's available for sale! Up to now, performances on the podcast were exclusive to the podcast, but you can download this performance from Bandcamp. Or, if you're a purist, you can get the original recording that featured Harlan Ellison! For the uninitiated, Lovecraft's Nightmares was our monthlong celebration of the master of cosmic horror. For four weekends in October, ARTC performed a different Lovecraft adaptation from our catalog. The first weekend, we led off with The Rats in the Walls, featuring Dave Schroede

    The Music of Erich Zann [esplayer url = "http://traffic.libsyn.com/artc/ARTC161-ErichZann.mp3" width = "80" height = "20" title = "The Music of Erich Zann"] Can you believe the first ARTC podcast was back in 2006? We can't, and we published it! At the end of 2015, we featured three interviews with ARTC writers and performers. We'll be having more of that in 2016, but for now let's get back to the audio drama with The Music of Erich Zann by H. P. Lovecraft, adapated for audio by Jonathan Horton and David Benedict, featuring music by The Ghosts Project, Paul Mercer and Davis Petterson with Alton Leonard. This was part of our Lovecraft's Nightmares show back in 2012 at the Academy Theatre. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="500"] Davis is a dark and shadowy presence.[/caption] Lovecraft's Nightmares was a monthlong celebration of the master of cosmic horror. His writing focuses on the strange, the macabre, and the insane. Speaking of insane, we performed a different Lovecraft adaptation each week in

    This month we're completing our interview series...for now. Be sure to let us know what you think of this new format and we may mix it in again from time to time! This time we are featuring ARTC actor and Head Writer Brad Strickland.

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="138"] Not as mean as he looks.[/caption] Brad is the author of many of our finest adaptations, including At the Mountains of Madness and The Rats in the Walls by H. P. Lovecraft and the forthcoming Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. He is also the author of several original audio dramas such as An Arkham Home Companion.
