This week we received a mysterious submission from a mysterious stranger who only identified themselves as Icewater.
Was it a dead-drop? Are we spies now? ARE YOU?!
Who knows, and who cares! Utopia is a fascinating new project that takes place in an alternate timeline that diverged from ours shortly after the first World War; the entire planet is now unified under a single government, everyone speaks Esperanto, and there's money and services sufficient to give everyone plenty of leisure time.
So why would anyone ever want out?

Our protagonist, Glacio, explores an ineffable well of discontentment within himself as we play episode 1 of Utopia: "Gladness".

Rank #9: Saratoga Fat Cats - Part 1

Podcast cover

Part 1 of 3
A huge pleasure to play this re-dux of one of the ZBS Foundations' most lust field-recorded stories.
Willie, who paints houses, is hired by some rich guy to repaint a few rooms in his summer mansion. His girlfriend, a wet T-shirt model for Sports Illustrated, can’t stand the colors. Her name is Christy St. Nichols, she’s a pretty down-to-earth gal, she knows the sexy modeling she’s doing is simply fulfilling unfulfilled male fantasies.
One day someone shoots out the windows in the summer mansion. Seems like the rich guy, Lucas Trust is his name, may have been involved in something that wasn’t all that up & up. Since Christy is allergic to cats, Lucas gives the gardener, his name is Shades, his two fat cats to take look after.
Willie loves to read cheap pulpy detective novels, his favorite is a P.I. by the name of Short Top Detroit. When he almost gets blown up with a car bomb, along with Lucas, it so shakes up Willie, he’s now hearing Short Top inside his own head.
The sound is warm and intimate because it was recorded with Fritz. To hear the 3D effect, listen with headphones or earbuds. It’s probably the most realistic, natural sounding production we’ve ever done. Mr. Fulton wrote it specifically for Mr. Fritz.

In this week's Radio Drama Revival, we highlight an instance of The Big Loop doing just that in its episode "Surfacing," the story of a Japanese deaf ama diver, as translated and told by her daughter.

This Thanksgiving, I'm thankful for Arden!

Is it a true-crime parody? No, not exactly. It takes the crime very seriously. But it is funny, and it is also a show with a mystery: what happened to actress and heiress Julie Capsom, when she disappeared on Christmas a decade ago?
The product of three writers—sketch comic Sara Ghaleb, entertainment critic Todd VanDerWerff, and Hollywood historian Christopher Dole—Arden is an engaging mystery hosted by two women—an ex-cop and a reporter—who fight over how they want to frame the show and contextualize Capsom's disappearance.
