The Rats in the Walls-LIVE part 4 of 4



Well, here we are. We made it. All the way through 4 parts of Lovecraftian horror and now we’re…not quite ready for the Centauri Express to launch.

We were so looking forward to this being the last episode of the venerable, but generically named, ARTC’s Podcast. But we just can’t. We can’t put forth something that’s less than our best effort. We just can’t do that to our listeners. So we’re pushing back to August. We hope.

Paige Steadman has her doubts.

So we’ll be carrying on in our usual fashion for just a couple more months. In the meantime, won’t you consider supporting us on Patreon? We just posted a bunch of really cool milestone goals to help you know what your support will mean to us, and we’re working on a short video to show how we’re operating, too. All kinds of good stuff going on, so remember that you can set your own budget and hopefully you can see your way clear to helping us out a bit. We’d really appreciate it!

The Rats in the Walls-LIVE part 3 of 4




We’re back and ready for another episode of ARTC’s Podcast! This month, The Rats in the Walls-LIVE part 3 of 4, performed live at the Academy Theatre in October 2012.

What else can we say about Lovecraft and The Rats in the Walls? Not much, really. I mean, it’s creepy, it’s awesome, it’s classic horror.

Paige Steadman

Paige Steadman wants to know what you mean by “creepy”.

So in this month’s show notes, we’re going to talk instead about what’s coming up for the podcast. As we mention in the podcast itself, we’re about to wind down on the show as you’ve known it for the last 10 years. We’re shooting for a June launch, but we’re perfectionists, so it might be July or August before we get this really ready, but when it gets moving it’s going to be as hard to stop as a freight train. Which is fitting since it will be the Centauri Express Audio Magazine!

Dash-DashWhat is the Centauri Express? It’s whatever you want it to be! For one thing we’ll be taking a step back from our anthology format and focusing on a serialized audio drama, beginning with the full 13-episode version of Dash Cardigan!

But that’s not all! We’ll also be featuring interviews with ARTC personnel, behind-the-scenes looks at our productions, outtakes, and user-submitted content that might take the form of reviews or previews of other audio dramas, convention reports, flash fiction, and whatever else looks interesting to us and to you, our loyal listeners.

Enjoying the live performances? Fret not! The majority of the back catalog will remain online and free for the foreseeable future and future live performances will be made available as free perks for our Patreon subscribers at ALL levels.

Hal Wiedeman and David Benedict

Hal Wiedeman has “feelings” about that news. David Benedict looks on, while scouting an escape route.

There’s still one more part of The Rats in the Walls to go and then…well, you’ll just have to stay tuned to find out what happens next. But whatever shows up next you can be sure that….There is Adventure in Sound!

The Rats in the Walls-LIVE part 2 of 4

We’re really sorry we missed our normal publication time this month! Car trouble impeded our progress. But we’re back on track now!

EDIT: We forgot the link to the actual audio! It’s here now! Those of you looking for it can find it now!

Tony Fuller at the Foley table

Tony Fuller practices breaking some kneecaps in case this ever happens again.

This month we continue with The Rats in the Walls from our 2012 performance. With music by The Ghosts Project, it was a really creepy experience.

Robert Drake on stage lights

Robert Drake is really creeped out.

The creepiness was enhanced by the lighting wizardry of Robert Drake. We don’t always have the luxury of special lighting at our live shows. At most of our convention appearances we usually just have the ballroom lights of the room we’re performing in, so being able to do a show at the Academy Theatre is a real treat.

Probably should have saved the fisheye lens for The Shadow Over Innsmouth
