The Voice of Free Planet X

True stories of fictional people, from Jared Axelrod

Episodes

The Voice of Free Planet X returns to The Philadelphia Podcast Festival with a brand new live show! In an effort to bring an understanding from two sides of an intergalactic conflict, VFPX host Jared Axelrod invites Salamander Keep (Phil Thomas) and Loam Sodden (Andy Holman Hunter) to debate. But how can they when they keep getting interupted by time-traveler Tiff Tock (Lizzy Hindman-Harvey)? And why is the Devil himself, Lucifer, Who Is The Morningstar (Russell G Collins) hanging around in the audience?

From the ends of space to the depths of Hell, The Voice of Free Planet X brings you the universe to the comfort of your seats at Tattooed Mom! Featuring a live musical performance by Gina Martinelli!

A note about the audio: We had some wonderful mics provided for us by Bridge Set Sound, but I wrote an episode that had everyone running all all over the place. So, some parts were not picked up by the good mics, and I've edited in bits recorded by my handheld recorder that I had going just in case. I've tried to make the edits as unobtrusive as possible, but there is a difference in sound quality.

Episode 25 - Starchild

Jared has been kidnapped by the villainous Dr. Mercury! Who this strange, powerful woman? The answers go deeper--and darker--than anyone was prepared for.

 

The Voice of Free Planet X is written and produced by Jared Axelrod.

 The Voice of Free Planet X theme is by Russell Collins.

This episode could not have existed without the performances of Christopher Morse, J.R. Blackwell, Sonia Williams, Josh Hitchens, Russell Collins and the support of listeners like you. You can support the Voice of Free Planet X at patreon.com/axelrod.

This is the last episode of Season 2! It is also the 25th episode by the new, GPR numbering, and the 200th episode by the old numbering! How about that? Pretty crazy, right? When I restarted the podcast, I was going to give myself until episode 200 to see if it was worth keeping it going. And you know what? It totally has.

Look for Season 3 to start in 2017!

Episode 24 - A Good Guy With A Magic Sword

If you live in the Kingdom of Cyriania, you’ve heard about the Feltrain Festival. The Feltrain Festival is an annual tradition in Cyriania, an all-night dance party, and one of the few that is, by tradition, unsegregated. All are welcome at Feltrain: Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Tanuki, Great Eagles, everyone. It’s often held up as a sign of Cyriania’s social progress, that ever since the fall of the Dark Lord Necron and the breaking of his bone throne, Cyriania has been moving forward.

This year, however, that illusion was shattered when Huber Heknut walked up to the Feltrain Festival and pulled out a magic sword that released a poison gas that killed 50 people at the festival in a matter of seconds.

Every tavern and inn conversation asks the same questions Should magic swords be banned? Or are magic swords an unalienable right? And what does the Raptor Queen have to say about all this?

New promo, with some of the great vocal performances from Season 2: Jason Gregory Banks, Christopher Morse, Sonia Williams, Dave Robison, Christiana Ellis, Russell Collins, Whitney "Strix" Beltrán, Kennedy Allen, Gorgah & Ellen Kushner.

It's 2 minutes long, so it's more of a trailer than a promo. But, oh, what a fun 2 minutes!

Episode 23 - Even In Arcadia

At the turn of the last century, a group of alien refugees decided hide as servants to large British manor houses. No one noticed anything unusual about the new house staff because no one ever noticed the house staff.

No one noticed, that is, until the Prince arrived.

There's no adventurers braver than the End of Time Club! With a roster straight out of pulp novels, there's nothing these daring explorers, daredevil pilots and dark vigilantes can't face!

Except perhaps, the loss of one of their own.

When the brilliant detective known as the Lacuna goes missing, its up the remaining End of Timers to make sense of the mystery.

Recorded live at The Art Church of West Philadelphia as part of The Philadelphia Podcast Festival!

"The Wake Of The Lacuna" was absolutely amazing. The best live show yet, in no small part due to the astounding performances this cast gave.

From left to right, that's Isa St. Clair as Abigail Airheart, Len Webb as Tom Brayve, Phil Thomas as Doc Cosmos, Andy Holdman as Operative 7, Sonia Williams as Rachnae.
