Comments: Podcast Drama: Saving Our Imaginations

A hearty AMEN to that! I'm continually impressed at the level of professionalism that these people--as a labor of love, mind you--bring to their work. And, for that matter, what even the fan-inspired works contribute to their exemplars. For example, Darker Projects does a "Star Trek" project that takes place during the "next generation" but has all of the zip of the first.

We also have storytellers who bridge the gap between prose and theater with their productions. One who immediately comes to mind is the gifted Christiana Ellis, whose "Nina Kimberly the Merciless" is officially a novel but often jumps the gap into theater. See (or rather, hear) her hilarious miniseries "Space Casey" for full-blown dramatics.

Such is the amazing geometry of the mind--that these things take place within the cranium, yet their dimensions expand far beyond the widest screens of television or cinema.

I'm glad you mentioned Darker Projects -- I just finished listening to the latest episode of Falcon Banner. Outstanding voice work.
