Cornucopia Radio Podcast 62: Reluctant Genius By Henry Slesar
15 Sep 2017 @ 05:19 am
It is said that life crawled up from the slime of the sea bottom and became ‘Human’ because of some inherent greatness that was bred into us before the dawn of time. But perhaps this urge was not as formless as we might have first thought…
For this experimental production w had three different people read out the same short story in its entirety. We then edited/mixed these voices together; creating this unique multicast recording.
Please note: This work was originally written for the January 1957 edition of ‘Amazing Stories’ magazine. Copyright on this publication was not renewed, and it is now in the public domain.
Cornucopia Radio Podcast 61: The Origins of Comic-Book Boy
13 Jul 2017 @ 08:44 am
They are stories of heroism, strength and of courage. Stories in which one person can stand up against the darkness that surrounds us, and say with total conviction and self-belief; that they are the ‘light’. We see pages full of colour and life, in which kinetic action moves across the panels. Dancing in front of our eyes, filling our imagination with endless possibilities...
Comics are a way of life for so many people, but do we truly understand their power? More importantly; if that power was ever unleashed, would it be used for good or for evil?
So today, we're asking the question. What would we create?
Cornucopia Radio Podcast 60: One Last Time
1 Apr 2017 @ 09:43 am
While a backyard tree bellows silently in the wind; Barbara Knox attends her husband David’s crematorium service. Naturally she is sad but also secretly, a little angry. You see, there are unresolved issues between the two of them and questions that still remain unanswered.
However as we will soon discover in our new audiodrama; David's story isn't yet over. He needs her help and somehow he finds a way to turn back to Barbara. For one last time...
Cornucopia Radio Podcast 59: Dylan and Blod
12 Jan 2017 @ 02:03 am
Dylan and Blodwyn are sat on a welsh mountainside about to start their weekly picnic. However the picnic basket remains closed and we can only but guess what they’ve brought along to eat. Who knows, perhaps they’ve forgotten to bring anything at all?
It’s happened before...
They’ve been sat in silence for some time now. The sky remaining overcast and the air hanging heavy and thick. Suddenly, Blodwyn recalls the question she wanted to ask. The question she knew she had to ask. She turns to Dylan and begins to speak...

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 58: Stone
8 Dec 2016 @ 07:17 am
Long ago when the universe was young. Alicia Harker, the Twelfth Daughter of Destiny, took the mettle of a dead god and forged it into a bronze hand. That hand would bestow good fortune on anyone who owned it. She then discarded it by a roadside, where it might be found and passed from person to person, bringing good fortune to those who’d done nothing to deserve it.
And once every hundred years, she sets out on an adventure to discover it and see what its latest beneficiary’s made of a luck so randomly granted. At least, that was the plan…
Stone is a new light hearted fantasy-drama about the purposes we bestow in the objects we own. Written by Stephen Walker, author of cult hits ‘Danny Yates Must Die’ and ‘Mr Landen Has No Brain’.

Cornucopia Radio Podcast 54: Last Gambit in Lisbon
29 Nov 2015 @ 01:41 am
During World War Two, Portugal remained neutral. Many of the people who found themselves there had little choice as to where they might live, work or even survive. Among those who had had little choice was Alexander Alekhine, the World Chess Champion.
Alexander is a man looking for a life away from sitting alone in his hotel room, with nothing but a chess board on a table and dinner in his lap. He is looking for inspiration, looking for his muse and ultimately; a way to return to his previous glory.
And perhaps he has found it...
