I don't like to assume the worst about people, so I'm going to assume you already know about The Thrilling Adventure Hour, that collection of playwrights and comedians and actors who do old-timey radio plays in live performance and put them out in new-timey formats, like mp3s via RSS feed.
And of course you probably know that stand-up comedian Paul F. Tompkins has a recurring role in their best recurring show, Beyond Belief, as half of Frank and Sadie Doyle, upper-class alcoholics who also know a few things about the supernatural and have adventures and whatnot.
So what I've done for you is gone through the RSS feed and pulled all the links together for just the Beyond Belief segments. (But by all means, go listen to their other shows and see how you like them... Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars is another of my all-time favorites.)
So here they are, in chronological order:
- Hell Is the Loneliest Number
- Wishing Hell
- The Devil And Mr. Jones
- Second Star To The Wrong
- She Blinded Me With Seance
- Rosemary's Baby Shower
- Love Love Me Doom*
- Chitty Chitty Bang Bang You're Dead
- White Hunter, Drunk Heart
- Vampire Weekend**
- A Dave at the Races
- Romanian Holiday
- Teenagers of the Corn
- Nuns the Word
*Mislabeled file name in the RSS feed, but trust me, it's the right link. I think the confusion in the file nameing is because the first episode was "Hell is the Loneliest Number" and they re-used the bumper to open the file. But if you keep listening, it's actually "Love Love Me Doom."
**Another mislabeled file name in the RSS feed, but again, we've got the right link. Just rename the file when you save it. Actually, you can take your pick, because in the performance, it's called "Vampire Weekend" but the announcement bumper before the performance starts calls it "Vampire Law."
