I am one of the hosts of Cinema Supercollider, a podcast about movies and the people who make them. We release episodes on a weekly basis and typically feature films of the b-movie and low budget variety. We love films that try hard, aim high and don’t always make it successfully. The podcast is available at the official website, with iTunes and Stitcher Radio in the works.
I am also one of the core hosts of the Jank Cast, Chicagoland’s podcast about all things gaming. We release episodes on a regular basis covering discussion topics, industry interviews and actual play of story games and other indie/small press RPG games. I have been a host since episode #50. The podcast is available at the Jank Cast website, iTunes and Stitcher Radio.
ONE SHOT PODCAST
I had the pleasure of recording an Actual Play with the lovely people of One Shot Podcast and their special guest, comedian Mike Migdall. The game is Heroine, by Josh T. Jordan, that pulls a lot of story elements and genre feels from movies like Labyrinth or Alice in Wonderland. I play the Heroine, a foster kid named Lindsay, who finds herself in a strange world with strict rules and strange denizens.
I’ve also appeared on the Indie+ video channel as a panelist and actual play participant.
THE TILT PODCAST
While I personally don’t appear on this podcast, my work has. The nice people at the Tilt featured my very theatrical playset, Break a Leg, in August of 2015. Their cast of actual actors, improvisers and comedians transformed themselves into the cast and crew of “Oh Requiem!”, a musical version of the film, Requiem for a Dream. Break a Leg is currently available as part of the Fiasco ’11 Playset Anthology at Indie Press Revolution in both PDF and print books.
Here’s another podcast that featured Break a Leg as an actual play. The guys from Rag-NERD-rok tackled yet another heavy stage play turned musical in October of 2015 with their take on Waiting for Godot the Musical! (with Zombies).
GOSH DARN FIASCO
And I’m thrilled that Break a Leg made it’s way on to Gosh Darn Fiasco, where Angela M. Webber (The Doubleclicks) and her friends from the world of gaming and comedy sit down to play a game of Fiasco, and improvise a brand-new story full of conflict, hilarity and almost certain death. “The Frivolous Ado of Madame Baudelaire’s Frock” may be the biggest hit since “Hamilton”… or the biggest flop since “Cats vs. Hamilton: Enter the Dark.” The cast is fighting, the director and stage manager are sleeping together, there are glove problems, and maybe…. a PHANTOM? Everything should be fine as long as the prop frocks are in the right box, and everyone gets that the Hitler-loving love interest is the BAD GUY. I’m sure it’ll be fine….
And finally, one more Break a Leg appearance in the wild on Catastrophic! In Topeka, Kansas: Vaudeville never went out of style, glow tape is really important and pantomime horses are harder to pull off than you think.
