Welcome back to more of our “Fantastic” summer – this week we’re moving away from the fantasy portion and into more of the strange and unusual. This time we introduce to you the production group Fancy Pants Gangsters and their anthology series, Redshift. Redshift is part of the Fancy Pants Gangsters’ podcast collective, which has about 8 different shows to its name. Redshift came about from a desire to create content that was more than a roundtable discussion of pop culture. Producer Evan Pedersen had been an audio theater fan for several years and has tapped the creative potential of the Minneapolis community, where the production group is based, to do these audio dramas. Their episodes are adapted from original stories, either from an open story call or their partner Apex
Magazine. This show, we have two of their stories from the Season 2 of this audio drama anthology series. In
Surveillance 101, Dr. Kayton Ponders is being monitored for her outspoken remarks, but who is watching the watchers? Before we can find out, we need to take a trip into deep space, with a story of Shakespeare on a far-off alien planet in ‘My Voice is in my Sword‘. Enjoy!
Also, if you’re looking for some exclusive new audio drama events coming from Fancy Pants Gangsters Productions, the group is planning a Halloween special along with a live performance in Minneapolis.
