The Amazing Pulp Adventures Starring Mister Adventure is an excellent audio series available free via podcast. Expertly penned by Davey Beauchamp and skilfully produced by Podcasting’s Rich Sigfrit, the show is simultaneously a comedic parody of, and a homage to, the pulp adventure radio dramas of decades ago. Set against the backdrop of World War II, it follows the exploits of Mr. Adventure and his heroic allies as they fight to defend Sapphire City from the schemes of nefarious arch-villains, such as Dr. Zhou and the Master of Zombies. I had the pleasure of contributing to two episodes just released over the past couple of weeks:
- Tour of the Future Stop 2: Balticon was recorded in front of a live audience at Balticon 41 in May of 2007, and just made it out into the feed this week. (Hey, cut him some slack… Rich is quite the busy guy!) This is second of a four part story arc, each of which were recorded at one of four summer 2007 conventions; the first stop was at RavenCon, and entitled the Master of Zombies Strikes Back. In Stop 2, Mr. Adventure and his companions continue their fight against the Master of Zombies, with rather “explosive” results. I had a blast (heh) portraying the evil Zombie Master himself.
- The 2007 Christmas All Star Spectacular was released into the feed a couple of weeks back. It is the follow-up to last year’s Christmas Spectacular. This year, Mr. Adventure and friends contend with the machinations of the thieving Abominable Snowman, in order to save Christmas once again. Continuing my willing typecasting as a super-villain, I lent my voice to the Abominable Snowman.
