Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" || ( Adapted to "World of Warcraft" )
Yes! I adapted the WHOLE story. This sucker is an hour and twenty minutes!
It was produced by "Auntie Ed" of FOR THE HORDE RADIO and performed by the F.T.H. Radio Staff.
The main character ( Scrooge-Like ) was performed by her co-host at the time "Big V".
I'm VERY proud of the 70 plus hours of work my wife did in post-production to turn it into a very fine work of Audio Art!
Do you Love "A Christmas Carol"?
Have you played WOW? Then this is well worth a listen!

Shakespeare Tonight! ||
Ok. This one is weird. and VERY "Niche"
I wrote a specialty talk show episode covering the film release of a newly discovered Shakespeare play.
The bit was done for a podcast called "Fist Full of Comics (and Games)".
The play is a tragedy based on a King that goes mad, having dreams of Marvel and DC
superheroes, and traveling his lands to find the source of his visions.
All the while he starts cosplaying a mix of all the super hero characters he sees in his dreams.
I went very deep into it, even going so far as to write the film's dialog in iambic pentameter.
I'd love to have that kind of time on my hands lately.
Again . . . Bizarre, but fun.
