Extra special thanks to Mildred Cady and Marnen Laibow Kaiser for translating the Comrade Cockroach and Ursa Major dialogue into Russian. If you have any problems with it, it’s my fault for pronouncing their amazing work poorly.

Craving some Comrade Cockroach comics? I've got you covered:
"The Definition of Insanity," an early adventure with Major Ursa
"The Secret Origin of Comrade Cockroach"
"Hand In Unlovable Hand," about his romance with Doctor Mercury, another supervillain

How can you not love Chris Morse's Supervillain Corner? It's only the best! Also, Chris not only lets me get away with my weird, out-of-the-box metascripts, he even voices Prof. Brainfever them! What a class-act.

Alasdair Stuart and Graham Wamsley had a tall order, having to sound incredibly bored the whole time, while John Davis had to be a bear.

I ask strange things of my actors.

Episode 19 - The Court Of The Crimson Queen

Things look bleak. My radio show has been canceled, an immortal interplanetary empress has ordered an entire sector of the galaxy to kill my brother, I think the lawyer I hired is taking advantage of me, and what's more, my brother keeps ruining my towels and complaining about my milk while he's hiding out in my spare room!

If I'm going to put a stop to all of this, I have to take it to the source. The court of Ruby Resplenda, Monarch of the Scarlet Sector, the Crimson Queen herself.

How great was it to work with my actual brother on this episode? So great.

Moriarty & Pity - A live reading from Balticon 50

One of the great things about Balticon is they ask me to do live readings, which, as you might imagine, since I record my voice for fun, I love doing.

This bit is the beginning of a work in progress starring Moriarty and Pity, characters my wife,J.R. Blackwell, and I created together. They are absolutely horrible people, and I think you'll like them quite a bit.

Queering the Feed - Panel Discussion at Balticon 50

I wasn’t planning on releasing this recording so soon. But in the wake of massacre in Orlando, it appears that queer people simply existing is a radical act. So, here is a panel about queer people existing. I was struck, listening to it again, by how much laughing is in it, how much joy, how much hope. There’s complaints, too, and disappointment and sorrow. But it begins with laughter and ends with an expression of solidarity, and if that’s not a radical reaction to all of this, I don’t know what is. 

I’ve made it a point to do these “queer visibility” panels for the past couple of years at Balticon, because, in the words of our forefathers, if you don’t start none, there won’t be none. A month ago, I thought it was important to stand up and be noticed. It’s more important now.

I’ll talk about Balticon properly in a few days, That episode will have a live reading I did. I’m not charging the Patreon supporters for this episode. We’ve all paid enough, already. 

In the light of the devastation, discussions like this feel so small. In the light of the devastation, discussions like this feel colossal.

 

Panelists: 

Jared Axelrod

A. Grappin

J.R. Blackwell

Hugh O’Donnell

Ruth Lampi (her Kickstarter funded!)
