WITS is a delightful program hosted by the most splendid John Moe, and upon which I have guested manymanymany times. You can catch it on the honest-to-God radio, or you can catch up with it via podcast here.
“Beyond Belief” is a segment of the live, staged fake-radio show The Thrilling Adventure Hour. Each segment of TAH is podcast individually. The “Beyond Belief” segment— starring myself and Paget Brewster as Frank and Sadie Doyle— concerns a pair of boozy paranormal investigators who are married to each other and to booze. It’s The Thin Man with ghosts. And more booze.
If you want to catch up on the adventures of Frank & Sadie Doyle. here are all of their adventures for your listening pleasure. They’re each about 20 minutes or so, with the occasional super-sized special episode along the way. I personally recommend all of them.
If you’ll be in the Los Angeles area on Saturday, March 21st, come to Largo at The Coronet to see…
THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR PRESENTS
Beyond Belief: Our Favorite Episodes
“As we near the end of our monthly run of live performances of The Thrilling Adventure Hour, Paul F. Tompkins and Paget Brewster have chosen some of their favorite episodes of Beyond Belief to present again for you. Please join us for this special evening featuring those married mediums, Frankand Sadie Doyle, as well as special appearances by the WorkJuice Players, surprise guest stars, and performances from some of our favorite musicians.”
I’ve lately gotten into listening to the past episodes of the Thrilling Adventure Hour. It’s a shame they aren’t making any regular episodes anymore but at least we can revisit the old ones. Thought I’d take a crack at doing interpretations of some of the show’s characters; though some of theses are inspired by other artist’s takes.
Probably my greatest joy in life comes from Acker & Blacker’s Beyond Belief. I showed my amorous adoration previously on this tumblah with the fanart I did last summer (which, waggles eyebrows, might actually become a print featured at their shows) but my latest labor of nerd love has been to legofy my favoritest of sousy supernatural sleuths. I’m probably a little TOO proud of this considering I’m a 32 year old adult male, but as Will Ferrell said, that age 14 label on the Lego box is just a suggestion. Now, who the devil at Lego do I need to petition to get a penthouse playset build for these two and their friends and foes?
