Monsters of the Shattered World #1 – The Sea Devils
Brent Newhall has launched a new podcast called Monsters of the Shattered World. It’s an episodic endeavor in the style of an old time radio show. The first episode, The Sea Devils, chronicles the findings of a scholar who is travelling abroad in the company of a band of hired adventurers cataloguing species of monsters. The narrative is presented in a ‘journal entry’ style and the story is supported by music and sound effects.
I love listening to old sci fi radio broadcasts and this project does a fantastic job of capturing that vibe in a fantasy setting. Right now episodes are slated for monthly release but if they get enough interest they may increase that to every two weeks (which I hope happens).
Follow the link and have a listen. It’s a fun show and a fantastic idea!
