Summer is still here, and so are the fantastic stories! We’re continuing your taste of two series you heard on our show last time – ‘The Bright Sessions‘ and ‘The Once and Future Nerd‘. Last week we started our therapy sessions with Samantha, one of the first characters written by producer Lauren Shippen. After listening to popular podcasts “Welcome to Night Vale” and “Cabin Pressure” she began to develop ‘The Bright Sessions‘ as an audio drama. The other characters came along shortly after – including another patient of Dr. Bright, a teenage empath named Caleb. This show, we’ll hear the first two meetings between Caleb and Dr. Bright, in Episodes 2 and 5 of ‘The Bright Sessions’.
After that, it’s ‘The Once And Future Nerd‘ – a serial audioplay by Christian Madera and Zach Glass. The story is told as a series of audio podcasts, organized as chapters of a book and recorded by a full cast of actors. New releases are quiet for now as the folks at ‘Once and Future Nerd’ are preparing for the release of episodes in Book 2. That’s good news for veteran listeners looking forward to new episodes, and for new listeners to chance to catch up on all the episodes released so far! The show has also released a high-quality version of “The Singing Sister” recently – a song featured prominently in their audio drama – with a new arrangement and orchestral accompaniment, it is currently available at onceandfuturenerd.bandcamp.com. Go check it out, after you’ve heard ‘The Once and Future Nerd’ – Chapter 1, Part 2. Enjoy!
