Happy February Everyone! This month we will be enjoying Sunken Harbor: K-I-S-S-I-N-G by Fireside Mystery Theater.
I thought this would be an entertaining podcast for the most romantic month of the year . . . and after listening I discovered it definitely wasn’t romantic, but by gosh it sure is fun! And, in order to make the fun last even longer, I will share two episodes this week of the four-part saga, and two episodes on the 19th.
Part One of this saga introduces us to the town of Sunken Harbor, a place where everything is a little strange and more than one person is under the thumb of Simon Perdito . . . or perhaps his mysterious strawberries?
It’s even spookier now than before . . . What is Simon Perdito up to? What does he need so many sculptures for? And while we’re on the subject, how is a female Rabbi involved?
Fireside Mystery Theatre is a motley an assortment of actors, writers, musicians, and technicians united by one common goal: to take your darkest fears and put them in your ears. This twisted take on the old-style radio variety show was birthed by Gustavo Rodriguez and Ali Silva in 2011. The show got its name because it was literally performed in front of a fireplace at The LIC Bar in Long Island City, Queens. The show is currently performed monthly and recorded live at The Slipper Room in New York City. Thanks to the efforts of former producer Daniel Graves, the show officially became a podcast in the autumn of 2014 and was immediately met with great excitement and acclaim. FMT has a penchant for the mysterious and the macabre as well as a healthy dose of humor and spirited musical performances.
