Bonus Episode!

Amy Bowen gets tired, especially after watching lots of Slings & Arrows.  Perhaps she has done the only kind of binge-watching allowed for a newbie, a rewatch from the beginning through the current episode?

When you get extra-tired and media saturated this way, your subconscious may begin to write the show for you. It did for Amy and the result is a dream-consciousness sort of fanfiction.  Being an experienced podcast storyteller, she could not help but share it for your enjoyment!

The regular podcast will return very soon with Season 2, Episode 1 “Season’s End.”

As always, feedback is welcomed and appreciated!

Ghostlight Podcast Season One, Episode 6: “Playing the Swan”

swan

Welcome to the final episode of the first season of the show!  The performance of the opening night of Hamlet is in serious doubt as Jack, the title performer, is nowhere to be found following a disheartening conversation with Richard.  Meanwhile, we finally get explicit detail into just what happened following Geoffrey’s famous leap into the grave, and into madness. Relationships are tested, redemption is achieved, and a major character gets eaten by swans. (No really!!!)

Hear us discuss Crabby Muppets, Nazi Collaborators, Swan Throttling, and Scrooge’s Long Underwear.

Geoffrey is now on the job as director of the New Burbage production of Hamlet.  But can he cope with some of the more unpredictable members of his cast?
