Episode 25 "Werewolves of Wall Street"

Episode 25 (6 Radio)  
"Werewolves of Wall Street"
April 20, 1920

Our latest episode!  As if Prohibition and the Spanish flu weren't enough! Who could have expected so many werewolves? I think they may outnumber the non-werewolves at this point.  Is there a trained dog act in the future? Jack Potts has plans for the old abandoned theatre they found.  There's a big werewolf fight scene coming up for sure.  Who knows what might happen!

We were lucky enough to have Janna Hove along, trading  her camera for screen grabs.  She still has the gift of capturing the exact right moments!

Episode 24 (Radio Ep 5) Islands in the LiveStream

What a week!

We were so geared up about our livestream broadcast for April 10,  then due to technical difficulties we had to abandon it.  Since we were together on Zoom and in costume, we decided to record this week's episode.  Then someone had the idea of doing a fake ending for the livestream,  like we'd had this fantastic episode and no one had seen it.  The cast bared their shoulders, so as to appear naked in the Zoom-scape.

We posted it on YouTube, and all was well for a day, until the video was removed for Violating Community Standards.  Long story short:  We appealed, and the Youtube restored the video within minutes,  so good for YouTube!   Here's that video:

And here's Episode 5!  As we get more used to doing  DieNasty in this new format, we're able to get closer to our live show,  and  have a wonderful time meeting together,  even though we miss our wonderful Varscona Theatre live audience!

As always, our wonderful photographer Janna Hove joined us, and was able to screen-grab us in action!

Watch for news of our rescheduled LiveStream, 
and watch for a new episode next Monday!
