Obscure Studios Talks Audio Drama on the Grit City Podcast

This week, you can catch Obscure Studios president Jonny Eberle on The Grit City Podcast! The Grit City Podcast has a simple premise—in every episode, the hosts sit down with Tacoma-based creatives and entrepreneurs over a couple of drinks to learn more about them and their projects.

In this episode, Jonny joins the crew for a hard cider and talks about the inspiration behind the creation of our science fiction audio drama podcast, “The Adventures of Captain Radio,” learning to be his own foley artist, his enduring love for Sherlock Holmes and why he’s drawn to storytelling in the first place, the prospect of artificial intelligence replacing writers, and the good ol’ public domain.

First Listen: New Podcast Coming Soon from Obscure Studios

We didn’t set out to make a podcast, but these things happen when you least expect them. What started out as a throwaway gag movie title in a video we made a decade ago found new life in the dark days of the pandemic. Now, over a year after Jonny started writing the first script for Captain Radio and the Mutant Mole People from the Eleventh Dimension, we’re nearly ready to share it with the world.

The Adventures of Captain Radio is set in the distant future. Over the course of a six-episode series, we join Captain Radio, a masked vigilante fighting the forces of evil, his trusty robotic sidekick Ace, and interstellar criminal Orion as they travel across the stars to rescue Andromeda from the clutches of a mad scientist, outwit deadly space sirens, seek the mysteries of a reclusive order of monks, and race to stop a conspiracy to destroy the known universe. The show is fun and campy—and every episode ends with a cliffhanger in the style of the great radio dramas of the 1930s and ’40s.

New episodes will start beaming to your earbuds in early 2022, but you can listen to a trailer for the season right now wherever you enjoy your favorite podcasts. Just search “The Adventures of Captain Radio” in Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, and other fine purveyors of audio drama. If you like what you hear, do us a favor and subscribe to the feed. That way, you’ll be notified when the first episode drops. Once we’re in the swing of things, we also hope you’ll leave us a rating and review, and share it with your friends.

This podcast has been a labor of love. In addition to being produced by Jonny Eberle and Will McDonald, our talented main cast includes Will McDonald, Rob Peters, DeLano Hays, Scott Kennedy, Abigail Stokley, Jonny Eberle, and Bailey Cunningham. Tami King designed our gorgeous logo (coming soon to some merch near you), and Bailey Cunningham composed our theme music. We’re so thankful for everyone who’s contributed their time to make this a reality.

Now, without further ado, check out the brand new trailer for our first-ever podcast, The Adventures of Captain Radio:
