Hello Fictional Cafe listeners! Rather than just giving you one Award-Winning podcast to end the month of March, I’m giving you two!
First up, 2021 Audio Verse Awards Finalist “Midnight Burger” by Joe Fisher. Listen to episode one here, then listen to the rest over at the MB site! In episode one Gloria, now jobless in the pandemic era, takes a job interview at a lonely diner outside of Phoenix. What could possibly go wrong?
Gloria – Siouxsie Suarez
Caspar – Joe Fisher
Ava – Finlay Stevenson
Zebulon Mucklewain – Neal Starbird
Effie Mucklewain – Julie Cowden-Starbird
Leif – Tom Moorman
Second, 2021 Winner of the UK International Radio Drama Award written by Richard H. Brooks.
England, late 1990s. He has been in love with Lucy for as long as he can remember, and now might be the last time to tell her. Yet as he talks to her at the lake, a shadow starts to take shape on the other side. Is it a trick of the light, a ghost or something else? Something that has been waiting for him for a long time.
Written by Richard H. Brooks
Directed and Produced by Matthew Boudreau
Music by Dayn Leonardson
Jonny Glasgow – Narrator
Tarn Perly – Lucy
Mark Maxwell – The Boy
