Welcome to the summer solstice edition of The Holy Crowley Hour, the night-time radio show that makes you wish the longest days of the year were even longer.
Our guests tonight are Kieran Davey and Jacqueline Ozorio of the wonderful British podcast The Penny Peepshow. The Penny Peepshow is actually a variety of individual, multi-episode series that take us from Jack the Ripper’s London, to an Australian base on Mars, to a sailing ship under the command of a pirate queen, to a contemporary bed and breakfast in Connecticut, and back again to outer space on the starship Madeleine. Despite the range of settings and eras, the constants are a keen sense of comedy, and expert writing, acting, and production. The Penny Peepshow is another worthy entry in the stellar tradition of British, and Australian, audio theater.
We'll be talking with Kieran and Jacqui about the podcast and playing an entire episode. All that before Joe Woods enters the KBOO studios at midnight, along with the 11 fugitive Republican Oregon state senators, who are currently, every last one of them, hiding out in Far-Away Places.
