Special Release: Death Shows the Way

In honor of this Saturday’s brand new Arcade Radio Mysteries show, we’re releasing a special recording from our show last October. It’s the Foley & Follies homage to The Shadow, where we performed the classic radio serial’s most surprising and politically incorrect episode “Death Shows the Way.”

Featuring voicework by John Feightner, Abby Fudor, Liz Labacz, James Catullo, Mike Rubino, Kristy Nolen, and Zach Simons as announcer and organist.

Going Postal

Saturday, July 12 at 10pm, James and Mike are returning to Arcade Comedy Theater for a brand new installment of Arcade Radio Mysteries — their pulpy variety that blends radio adventure and improv! This special show marks the debut of a new Dodge Intrepid and the Pages of Time spin-off series: POSTAL OPS.

Tailored after noir and procedural police serials, POSTAL OPS is a Prohibition-era comedy detective series following Wilson and Jerry Topplebottom. They’re fresh recruits to the Beaver County chapter of the United States Postal Service crime unit: Postal Ops. Can these two World War I veterans learn the ropes and follow the rules? Or will their thirst for mail-justice be too much to handle?

Don’t miss this brand new chapter in the Dodge Intrepid universe!

Tickets are ON SALE NOW and just $10!

The Thrills of Summer!

We know, it’s been a long time since anyone has heard from their favorite time-traveling librarian. Since our last adventure, Mike and James have been busy being grown-ups: Mike recently got married to his wonderful fiancee Abby while James and his wife Marissa moved into a new home. Now that things have settled down, and the summer approaches, we’re ready for some new adventures… and finally releasing some old ones.

The lost season of Dodge Intrepid and the Pages of Time will be released this summer, with recovered recordings of our previous three full-length adventures!

Mike and James are also planning a brand new performance of Arcade Radio Mysteries in July. It’s a mix of Dodge Intrepid, classic radio scripts, and theater improv involving an expanded cast of amazing actors.

Then, get ready for a brand new, full-length adventure in September! Mike and James have already begun writing, and given the events of our last live show, this new tale is going to shock and amaze you. Don’t worry, with the upcoming podcast releases, you’ll be all caught up in time.

So to our loyal fans, and new listeners, we want to thank you for sticking with us! We hope you’re as excited for the summer as we are.

Madness & Follies at the Arcade

 

Dodge Intrepid made his return to Arcade Comedy Theater this month for a brand new adventure, The Madness Beyond Time. The show, which was performed in front of a capacity crowd, was the first new adventure the gang has written in over a year.

To celebrate, James and Mike also assembled an amazing cast of voices for a new, vintage-themed variety show: Foley & Follies: Radio-Variety Hour. Featuring a classic Dodge Intrepid I.L.L. adventure, Uncle Wilbur commercials, pulpy long-form improv, and an authentic script from a 1930′s episode of The Shadow, the show was a fun experiment.

The cast of Foley & Follies featured James Catullo, Kristy Nolen, Michael Hinzman, John Feightner, Mike Rubino, Abby Fudor, Liz Labacz, and Zach Simons (who was the host and accompanist for the evening.)

Geek Pittsburgh Interview

This past week, the venerable and always entertaining website Geek Pittsburgh interviewed the cast of Dodge Intrepid as they prepare for their upcoming adventure, The Madness Beyond Time.

Dodge Intrepid and the Pages of Time is the brainchild of James Catullo and Michael Rubino, who, along with Michael Hinzman, make up the core of the live performances. Catullo and Rubino were originally members of the Beaver County comedy troupe the Cellar Dwellers, and when the owner of Café Kolache—a local coffee shop that they frequented—asked about the group staging a production there, Rubino came up with a different idea. “Their performance space, usually reserved for acoustic musicians, was too small for our troupe to do improv or sketch comedy,” he explains. “But I started to think about other types of shows I could do there and hit on the radio-serial format.”

Writer Anthony Letizia delves into the show’s origins, how James and Mike came up with the name “Dodge Intrepid,” and what Mike Hinzman loves about doing so many voices.
