The Kidnappers - A man comes home to find his wife has been kidnapped. A strange drama with many twists and turns, this peice was origanally written for the Writers On-the-air Workshop, and then adapted for the Ubu Hour.
The Ubu Hour adapts Albert Camus's THE PLAGUE just in time for the swine flu pandemic... Actually we ran a longer version of this show 3 years ago, when people were worried about avian flu and how the Bush administration would react to it. So we took that 1 hour show, chopped out all the Bush parts, added in a page of dialog about swine flu, and voila! A new Ubu episode...
This is the untitled peice at the beginning of June's Ubu Hour.. First some right wingers come on to rant on how we don't satirize Obama like we've done to Bush and Cheney, and then we listen to a clip of O'Bomb'ya talk about his wonderful policies in Afghanastan and Pakistan.
Our Little Mayor Part 3 - Catch up on the latest adventures of Our Little Mayor Slam Assbuns and his problems with the media hounding him for consensual sex with another adult... This peice involves car crashes, 12-lane highway bridges, and a new soccor stadium. Written and produced by G Violetta
AN EVIL, EVIL MAN - Starring the voice of Richard Bruce Cheney, this audio peice involves a former vice-president accused of torture and war crimes who appears again on the air waves for even more fear mongering. A collage of scary sounds and creepy pronouncements from an evil, evil man.
America means freedom, and nothing says freedom more than the freedom of health care... A major health care lobby gives us reasons to be against single-payer universal health care and for the profit-driven system that we have now.
Golden Parachute, a suspenseful audio-drama about wealth, money, class, estate taxes, and death. Inspired by the fact that because of Bush's tax cuts for the rich several years ago, in 2010 the estate tax completely vanishes, adn then in 2011 it returns. So why would anyone want thier rich relatives to die in 2011 or afterward and pay estate taxes if they can die in 2010 and not pay a dime?
