An immersive adventure into the imagination

In these strange times, we need more than ever, fun entertainment and distractions. Pulp Fury Radio is bringing the humble radio playback into our homes (or cars) and an invitation to amble through those genres of pulp fiction - noir, horror, mystery, sci-fi, and fantasy.
Enveloping me in the embrace of childhood nostalgia, I was delighted as the Eternal hostess, the Librarian, introduced the first in a series, It Came from the Bottom of the Ocean, But Also from Space. The horror/sci-fi story is an amusing nod to those B-grade shlock movies of the VHS era. This story was reminiscent of The Twilight Zone.
For those that missed the famous story of Orson Welles and the panic of the War of the Worlds broadcast back in 1938, a radio play differs from normal fiction or an audiobook because the action is acted out with a cast of actors and sound effects for an immersive listening experience. More like a theatre than a reading of a story.
Pulp Fury Radio is a podcast featuring new original fiction performed in the style of radio dramas by an all Australian cast and production, The project was created and written by Sydney writer BT Calloway, and producer, and co-director Elliot Jay O'Neill. You can find the series on Spotify, Apple, Google podcasts or pretty much where ever you like to get your podcasts.
It's a gorgeous escape into a world of the fantastic and mysterious. The perfect antidote for the current times... Now I just have to wait for the intriguing The Last Known Sighting of Irma Strauss to drop!
