Christmas is almost here, and you know what that means – holiday stories. This week and next we’re bringing you some tales for the season, and tonight they’re brought to you by some new and old friends. We’re starting out tonight with “The Christopher Walken Christmas Storybook” from Cornucopia Radio, which gives us a unique look at how Santa Claus’ present delivery might go nowadays. Following that is a special holiday episode of The Byron Chronicles from Darker Projects, as Byron makes a visit into the world of The Leviathan Chronicles. We end the night with Rebeka Gretal as she busts criminals in this 70’s-cop-beat-meets-fairytaleRead More →
Welcome back everyone! It’s another evening of audio drama – tonight we decided to go with a political/news-spoof theme to wrap up all the crazy politics as of late. Our main feature is Episodes 1-4 of “The Administration”, produced by Misfits Audio. In addition, we also have some shorts from Vexation Audio with “Not the BBC – ‘The Hole’”, another visit from Irrational Public Radio and a twisted tale from Final Rune Productions entitled “The War on Poverty”. And don’t forget to tune in next week – we’ll be announcing our winners of the 2nd Annual MAT Scriptwriting Competition!
Hey there MAT listeners! So you remember two weeks ago when our Halloween show failed to make it to air? Well it’s up tonight! We’re extending October out for two more days so we can bring you one more episode of Halloween-themed stories – starting with Darker Projects’ “The Byron Chronicles”, “Blackout” by Lightning Bolt Theater of the Mind, and wrapping up with “The Haunted Cell” by Campfire Radio Theatre. ALSO – as of this post, we have closed submissions for our 2nd Annual MAT Scriptwriting Competition. Thank you to everyone who sent in their scripts – we’re looking forward to the review and judgingRead More →
Hey everyone! Apologies to all listeners who tuned in for last week’s snafu repeat. Tonight’s show is all new and better! But there’s good and bad news. Good News: MAT is giving way to an hour-long program of original Halloween stories written and produced by students and faculty at The Ohio State University. Huzzah! Bad News: We don’t have a download available for you tonight. The only way you’ll catch it is if you listen in to WCBE 90.5 FM Columbus. If you live out of town, you can catch their streaming broadcast online at wcbe.org as well. Please check out the show on WCBERead More →

Good news: We have a new episode tonight, featuring a radio adaptation of “A Christmas Carol”! Bad news: We won’t have it available on this website for download; at least, not for a while.

Have a happy holidays everyone! Next week’s episode is up in the air at the moment, but we’ll definitely be back next year!

Hope you’re ready for some humor! In honor of April Fools Day, we’ve put together an all-spoof show for your listening enjoyment. Take a listen to the in-depth reporting of Irrational Public Radio, hear more tales of adventure from Two-Minute Danger Theater and we’ll top it all off with the first episode of the now-elusive Dick Dynamo, The Fifth Dimensional man. You won’t want to miss this episode! Note: The IPR Episode is indeed a past episode created for the (Christmas) holiday season – I failed to realize this as I was too amused by the episode itself.
