E078: The Whispering Ether

June 30, 2020

What is "The Whispering Ether"? Is it a goth zine from the 90s? Is it the name of the letter column of a goth zine from the 90s? No, it's the creation of a mad scientist )who is much better at monologuing than scientisting) that allows him to read the minds of at least two people: A safecracker sent to steal his secrets and the leader of a European country to be named later. From the June, 1926 issue of Amazing Stories comes a tale of super-science that will astound you! Plus we discuss ghosts, Marconi, Tik Tok celebs, pirates, man parts, radio parts, buffoonery, charcuterie, cartoonery, and much, much more.

Stuck at home with nothing to do but listen to podcasts? You can still listen to our comedy/sci-fi audio drama series, Parasitecology! It's got aliens, spaceships, work happy hours of doom, trips to the supermarket, and a fugitive alien brain parasite named Cher. It's a whole lot of story in 14 episodes with each about 25 minutes long. Perfect for binging! To learn more about Parasitecology, visit our website or search in any podcatcher. We've gotten some nice feedback and would love to hear from you after you hear from us.
