For Drabblecast Bsides Premium Subscribers this week, we bring you the classic 1972 Full Cast radio production of The Peoria Plague. Don’t worry, it’s just a fictional audio drama! …isn’t it?

Hmm, looks like I can post my first root-thread on the drabblecast. Nice. This patron-only audio drama is quite evocative. I'd urge you to (a) support the 'cast and (b) slog your way through the episode's intentional audio manipulation.

I have a very Gucci listening nook set up (fancy dancy headphone amplifiers of the all-transistor, all vacuum-tube, transistor-tube-hybrid variety and 4-channel tone control and a multibit-DAC... driving all kinds of hoity-toity headphones). Gahhhh. The episode's audio drop-outs and wows (?) made it sound very much like an AM station under siege. I had to disable much of my gear to make it coherent. Nice! :mrgreen:
