Podcast cover

Pastor,

PLEASE DO NOT SHOW THIS EMAIL TO ANYONE!!! Now that thats out of the way, for your next episode’s description just write something about how you had on that crazy woman from the PTA and her idiot lawyer and you talked about blah blah blah I don’t care.

More importantly, you posted my last email as the description for your last podcast. MY SISTER SAW THAT EMAIL PASTOR!!! I need you to explain to her that you were just kidding and that I didn’t write that email and that I don’t really have feelings for her. Once you’ve done that and this whole thing has settled down for a while I think I’ll finally get my chance. I bought the ring and…and I’m finally ready to settle down. I love her, Pastor. Now, granted we hadn’t spoken in about 10 years and this whole incident didn’t exactly help my relationship with her (or with my brother-in-law) but you can still make this good! Please, Pastor! Do the right thing. I can sill make this work!

Oh and I’ll be over later with my Robotech VHS tapes, but you gotta have the popcorn this time! I can’t buy it every time!

Best,
Don

P.S. Obviously this goes without saying but DO NOT POST THIS EMAIL!!! I MEAN IT PASTOR!!

Rank #7: CCRH #2: RE: A Misunderstanding

Podcast cover

Pastor, I think there was a bit of a mix-up with the last podcast you put out. I wasn’t saying that you should just copy and paste the e-mail I had sent you and use that for the episode description. Having the entirety of an e-mail from me as a description is just going to confuse people. That being said, regarding your next podcast you should call it something like “A COUPLE OF FRIENDS STOP BY!” and in the description talk about how you meet with local restaurateur, Juan Churita and Trey McDaniels of Trey McDaniels used cars and auto parts. Again, I must make this clear, DO NOT MAKE THIS THE ACTUAL DESCRIPTION. PLEASE DO NOT SHARE THIS EMAIL WITH ANYONE!!!!  I know writing podcast descriptions is hard but I know you can do it! On an unrelated note,I really have to thank you for that advice you were giving me about my sister. I think i’m finally gonna tell her how I feel. Thanks again Pastor! All the best, Don https://theatrecpt.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/ccrh_ep2_final.mp3

Podcast cover

Too busy to stop in to church every Sunday? Pastor Clearwater has got you covered with the first in his brand new “Sermon-on-the-go” series.

In the first of these shorts, Pastor Clearwater answers a touching letter from a young boy seeking guidance. Take a listen and maybe you too will find yourself inspired while you drive.

***Although as a legal note, no matter how compelled you may feel to “let Jesus take the wheel”, The Revival Church issues this stern reminder that Jesus was alive in a time WITHOUT CARS and thus does not know how to operate one. Any damages to persons and or property due to Jesus’ negligence while driving are not the fault of Pastor Clearwater or The Revival Church***

Rank #9: CCRH #1: RE: What to name my first Podcast

Podcast cover
Read more

Pastor,

I got your email about your podcast. I think thats great that you want to do one! I’d be more than happy to help you come up with a name for your first episode. Why not, “Meet Pastor Clearwater!” or “Police, Chiropractor, Dog-Walker” In terms of a description for the episode, thats pretty simple. Just copy and paste this:

“Pastor Creedence Clearwater of the Revival Church debuts his podcast investigating the small town of Beavertail, Nebraska. His guests include homicide detective Jim Silvers, chiropractor and affluent man Ryan Parsons, and dog-walker Norman Whittler. They discuss numbers, scary music, and try to get to the bottom of the cold case of missing person Deborah Forrest!”

That should serve pretty well as a description on iTunes. As for your previous Email, I don’t think I have the capacity, nor do I think its ethical to edit John Grisham‘s voice to have him promoting your podcast. I don’t even think it would boost numbers that much as I don’t think many people know what he sounds like. Let me know if you have any other Podcasting/Sound Editing questions.

Best,
Don

P.S. Please do not copy and paste this entire email and use it for the episode description.

https://theatrecpt.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/ccrh-trial-final.mp3

Pastor Clearwater,

It has come to my attention that your time at the Beavertail Historical Society has come to a firey end. It would appear we need to, once again, find a new placement for you. This time, I have an idea that I believe should suit your particular skill set.

Its well known that you famously defended yourself in your trial, successfully even. Therefore we would like you to act as a public defender for the city of Beavertail as the city currently has 0 lawyers and many, many outstanding trials.

We will start you out with an easy one, a simple B & E revolving around a stolen trading card. Wayne Lisby from Crumdon will be once again coming into town to serve as prosecutor and you will be arguing before the honorable Wayne Cartwright.

I would very much like to come into work without hearing you have somehow lead to another location burning down.

https://theatrecpt.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/ep3_edit1.mp3

Pastor Clearwater,

It has come to my attention that your time in the employment of the local bowling alley has come to an end. I thought that you could keep yourself out of trouble at such a simple job but it appears I gave you too much credit. I spoke with the alley and apparently you impeached the religious freedoms of the patrons? A bad crime for a pastor’s rap-sheet.

Nevertheless I have found work that I believe will better suit your particular, presentational skill set. The Beavertail Historical Society is looking for a new tour-guide for their interactive tours through Beavertail history. I have secured this position for you to work off your remaining 11 weeks community service. Please, please try to stay out of trouble.

If it is difficult to reach me over the next week it is because I will be out of the office on very private business. Please do not inquire about this further, and please try to at least keep this job until I return.

Best Regards,
Ethel Laharl

Rank #14: An Introduction to Pastor Creedence Clearwater of the Revival Church

Podcast cover
Read more

In anticipation of his podcast debut on Sunday, here’s a message from Pastor Creedence Clearwater himself, and a few words from his sound engineer, Don.

https://theatrecpt.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/ccrhfinalad.mp3

Hello people of Beavertail,

Pastor Creedence Clearwater, from the Revival Church is launching a brand new podcast. He sent me over an ad to play in order to “get people more excited than that time the Hostess truck accidentally delivered two extra boxes of snowballs to the gas station”

The files he sent were…difficult to manage to say the least, but i’m pretty sure I got the audio file he wanted to have played as an advertisement.

Please join us this Sunday for the official launch of the Creedence Clearwater Revival Hour. Pastor Clearwater will be holding a special fundraising event in honor of the launch, at his church from 9AM to 9:45AM.

It’ll be held in the Church Parking lot, as Pastor Clearwater is still awaiting the new set of church keys to come back from the hardware store. If you’d like to stop on by, he’ll be playing the podcast from his car speakers and serving grilled cheese sandwiches. Please BYOB (bring your own bread).

Any and all donations will be accepted and are encouraged.

Thanks and enjoy the podcast!

-Don, The Sound Engineer

Rank #15: State Of The Podcasts Address- Tuesday Thoughts

Podcast cover
Read more

Podcast Head Honcho, Andrew Terrance Kaberline addresses the listeners about the changes in the podcasts, and the launch of new episodes on February 14th.

You can listen to the audio version of the address, or you can read it in text form

https://theatrecpt.files.wordpress.com/2016/02/stateofthepod.mp3

Andrew addresses why we do podcasts (1:15), what we learned from year one (2:20), and what we are going to bring you this year (4:25)

THE STATE OF THE PODCASTS ADDRESS:

Hello podcast listeners all around the world! This is Andrew Terrance Kaberline, Critical Point Theatre ensemble member, and CPT Broadcasting Podcast Head Honcho. Thank you, as always, for listening in.

February 14th is coming up, and you know what that means? Well, yes, Valentine’s Day, but it also marks one year of CPT Broadcasting. It’s our one year anniversary, what did you get us?

Just joking. Having you listen is a gift enough. We did get something for you though, and that’s four new episodes of our podcasts dropping simultaneously. We do it because we love you, and  because we love podcasts too.

February 14th, we will have new episodes of our podcasts,
including the award-winning anthology series, The Grayscale, Sunday Night Supper, SJW, and a new show we are very excited about, The Creedence Clearwater Revival Hour.

Why Podcasts?

At Critical Point, we want to create art that pushes beyond the boundaries of storytelling, and crosses media as if we’re passing through states of matter. We want the podcasts to inform our theatrical shows, and vice versa. This year it is a goal to connect the social identities of our various projects to help you, our listeners and viewers, to experience and enjoy our work on a larger level.

What does that mean? That means you will see crossovers and tie-ins, aiming at a larger Critical Point Universe. We want the story to go beyond the stage, the recording booth, the page. We want it to continue into your homes. A great example of this work is our twitter fiction story that debuted last week revolving around The Grayscale character, the Voice Inside Your Head. We told a story about his work life using Twitter as our stage, and the story will continue sonically on The Grayscale Podcast. This is just a taste of the kind of expansion we hope to bring you.

What Did We Learn In Year One?

We learned what worked and what didn’t work. We decided to go all-in on a medium that we had no experience working in, and we learned how to adapt. The proof is in the pudding. If you don’t believe me, just go listen to our first few podcasts last year compared to our season finales. We became better mechanics, technically improving the listening experience and recording efficiency. We became better painters, gaining confidence in how to best tell a story through sound. And in a way, we became better Morticians, since some of our podcasts didn’t make it to year two.

This Is_ was the first to officially be cancelled. The show was ambitious in idea and scope, and with limitations of time, resources, and quite frankly, our understanding of how to go about doing a show like that, we were not able to reach the quality we had hoped.

Something Old, Something New has been put on hiatus. This is not a decision based on the effort of Matthew Schott, who was a wonderful showrunner. Matt did a fantastic job at tweaking the format of the show throughout its run, and the quality improved. While SOSN will be on hiatus, there is still the possibility to have special episodes released on the CPT feed throughout the year, such as Matt’s recent “year-end review” Tuesday Thoughts.

Here’s The Word has also been put on hiatus. We love poetry and we love the contributions of Matthew Kaberline. This decision is more of a result of busy work schedules and a type of show that doesn’t fit directly into the mission of Critical Point. There are talks of continuing HTW independent of CPT, and once more information is known, we will share it with you.

What We Have In Store This Year

Lots of new and original stories, all starting on February 14th. Last year, we learned how to make audio stories, this year we want to learn how to make them better.

Before, our aim was to just release as much content as possible. We are still going to release a lot of content this year, but there will be a finer focus on the quality of each episode we release.

We have four shows currently in production, and each will have their own iTunes RSS feed. We will also continue to have the overall Critical Point Theatre iTunes feed. This will include all episodes of each of our podcasts, as well as special podcast updates not under any particular show banner. I will continue to be your Head Honcho, and Chelsea Rugg will continue as Podcast Production Manager.

The Grayscale enters season 2. This season, the choice is ours, as The Voice Inside Your Head continues to investigate human behavior through an unusual lens. This season will include ten episodes, released on the first of each month. While we will bring back many of the writers and actors who made season one so special, we will continue to strive to bring at least one new voice each episode. Dylan James Amick will continue as showrunner.

Social Justice Warrior will continue where it left off in 2015, and explore culture gone viral when it comes to feminism and activism. The format of the show will continue to evolve, combining interviews, reporting, and editorial-like commentary. The show will continue with a new episode each month. Julia Katz will continue as showrunner.

Sunday Night Supper will be back, shedding the restraint of any “season” labeling, and will continue moving forward. New storytellers will be heard, new topics explored, and new formats will exist. There will be a combination of personal stories, narrative stories, and even some montages. SNS will air episodes every other Sunday. There will be roughly 20 new episodes this year, and some re-broadcasts of old episodes, with updates and new content included. I will continue as showrunner.

Creedence Clearwater Revival Hour is our newest addition. A
n improv-based look at the fictional town of Beavertail, Nebraska, and its kooky inhabitants, led by the always desperate Pastor Creedence Clearwater of the Revival Church, no relation to the band. Fans of shows like Comedy Bang Bang, Parks and Rec, or Welcome To Nightvale, will enjoy the humor and world-building, as every detail spoken about the town becomes canon. There will be a full episode on the first Monday of each month, and a mini-sode on the third Monday. Matthew Schott will act as showrunner.

That’s what we have in store for you all this year. Thank you for listening, and please remember to subscribe to the shows on iTunes, and tune in on February 14th to make it a happy Valentine’s Day for all!

Goodnight!
