Oz 9 podcast

Oz 9

It's Spring 2142 (a Tuesday), and Gated Galaxies has launched its 400 Oz-8000 ships, each carrying 50,000 "resting guests" to, hopefully, a new home on a shiny, brand-new planet. Except this whole "terraform and take over" idea isn't actually the plan; the real plan is far more nefarious and involves a great deal of cackling. But those aboard the ships don't know that, so off they toodle (those that make it out of Earth's atmosphere, at least), all shiny and optimistic. This is the story of one of those ships – the Oz 9 – and its tiny crew of hopeless incompetents. So far, they've been in space half an hour and several hundred people are dead. So... bright future, clearly.

The story takes place along the road of a lonely highway at a gas station in the afterlife called Desert Skies Astral Plane Fuel and Service Station. The staff at the station help new arrivals in the afterlife get ready to embark on their journey through the celestial spheres. You’ll meet Tendy the Attendant, Mac the Mechanic, and C.A.S.H the sentient cash register, and together they’ll make sure you’re prepared for the ride.

episode ninety-eight: Something is coming

It's time to check under the bed, make sure the closet doors are firmly shut, tuck any clown toys in your siblings' rooms or the freezer, and crank up the nightlight — things are getting spooky on the Oz 9. "Something is coming," and it's probably not bearing ice cream or prezzies. The crew of the 9 are in trouble, and though this is no big surprise, it is nearly the end of the season, so you never know.... ---Bonnie Brantley as Jessie and Lady Nibble Biscuit ---Eric Perry as Joe, Dr von Haber Zetzer, and Howard ---Shannon Perry as Madeline and Olivia ---Chrisi Talyn Saje as Julie ---David S Dear as Doctor Theo Bromae ---Sarah Rhea Werner as Pipistrelle ---Tim Sherburn as Colin ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---Kevin Hall as Greg. ---Kyle Jones is your Narrator Two, ---And Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator.

episode ninety-seven: Well, this is unexpected

So, a few things to discuss here. Basically, don't do ANYTHING you hear in this episode. So, I guess there's really only one thing to discuss. Never mind. Some warnings: sounds of person drowning.

The trailer you hear is from [World Gone Wrong] (https://www.audaciousmachinecreative.com/world-gone-wrong) . I've listened to the first ep, and yeah, this is a good 'un. Get in there early so you can be smug about it later. ---Malik: Michael Turrentine ---Jamie: Hilary Williams The trailer was written by Eleanor Hyde, directed and edited by Jeffrey Nils Gardner.

episode ninety-six: Why is there a bar on the bridge?

I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. Have you ever met a Kestochalian? Actually, you might have. They're sort of lovely, except when you want to thump them on the snoot. Which, to be fair, is true of a lot of living things. Also my computer. Which, if it had a snoot, would have been thoroughly thumped on today. ANYWAY, we made something for you, and if you've ever made a huge Sunday meal, this is kind of like that. We slaved all day, it'll be over in 20 minutes, and then we start over. Do I sound crabby? I feel kind of crabby.

Check out The Sprouting!

Olivia frequently just gets bored watching the crew of the Oz 9 tangle themselves up in disasters of their own making, and lately she's been downloading podcasts to listen to. She recently stumbled across The Sprouting, a show about battling plants (wait for it) .... cleverly. And she liked it. Like ... a lot. She doesn't like ANYTHING, so we're all a bit shocked over here. Please take a listen to the supercut of The Sprouting, then find the show wherever you listen to podcasts! Dear listener, Welcome back to The Cradle. Our protagonists meet at a fuel stop... sorry, Gas Station... and come to the realization that travelling onwards as a group is far safer than travelling alone. As they navigate this eldritch plant strewn world, what horrors might they encounter? I guess you're about to find out.

episode ninety-five: Spill or be spilled

Well, cue the sultry saxophone and the wire-brushed cymbals, we're back for part II of our "noir" wormhole. We had high hopes for this one (as in, high hopes everyone would get shot and this nightmare would finally be at an end), but we're only down a tour guide, and even he just seems to have wandered off. Goldipants Detective Agency is hot on the heels of Red (aka Colin Smith aka Horace MacRory), the millionaire gangster whose morals are as slippery as his accent. Will Pluto and Donna track down the bad guy before we lose any more scientists? Will Mrs S and Donna survive their brush with the Big Bad? Also, what the hell's a nereid?

episode ninety-three: A Midsummer Morning After

It's part 2 of this, and then I swear, we're finished and you can go back to just suspecting how pretentious we are rather than having the receipts. We know Feb 14 can be a bit rough for some, so we wanted to give you the subtle sounds of barfing fairies to help you get through the day. Just know, we love your goofy, kooky self ALL days of the year.

episode ninety-two: A Midsummer Night's ... whatever the hell this is

As Narrator 2 says in this episode, "English majors must perforce English maj," so here's the episode you've all been dreading: the Fakespeare. Come on, stop whining, you knew it was coming. If you're not familiar with A Midsummer Night's Dream, well, there are lots of really excellent versions out there. We prefer you NOT listen to those, however, as that's going to make this seem even more torturous than being read Vogon poetry before being shot out into space. That said, it was fun to write and fun to do, so ... get over it. Also, the second half should show up on Feb. 14, a day some folks seem to think is special. Thou hast been listening to... ---David S Dear as Dr. Theo Bromae ---Kevin Hall as Greg ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---Eric Perry as Dr. von Haber Zetzer ---Shannon Perry as Olivia ---Chrisi Talyn Saje as Julie ---Tim Sherburn as Colin ---Sarah Rhea Warner as Pipistrelle ---Bonnie Brantley as Duckweed, Wooly Sedge, Horsetail, and Cattail. ---Kyle Jones is your Narrator 2, ---And Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator. Our music was writ by John Faley, and our artwork from the fevered brow of [Lucas Elliott] (https://www.lucaselliottart.com/) . [Sarah Golding ] (https://linktr.ee/QuirkyVoicesSarah) our dialogue did edit, and Shannon Perry our sound design'ed. Lamentably, our story of Oz 9, much like the alien of old, did explode from the head of Shannon Perry and wreaketh much havoc upon a space ship. Check out more nonsense at https://oz-9.com. Know you now that Oz 9 doth hang about with many a rascally and ill-reputed tale amidst the Fable and Folly Network; go thee hence to fableandfolly.com and there beguile your idle hours with true delights.

episode ninety-one: Measuring tape awareness day

This episode... it fought back, I tell you what. But we finally wrangled it into some sort of shape. I'mma go with "parallelogram," because it looks like it's about to fall over, but it's a shape, anyway. We meant to get this out when we were still in the throes of the holiday season, but hey, it's Winnie the Pooh Day, and I reckon that's worth celebrating. It's also National Michigan day, soooooo, go, Michigan, I guess.

It's nearly Christmas as I type this, and I'm bah humbugging like your least favorite neighbor, but throwing out an episode of Oz 9 always makes me happy. I like making the world just a little bit goofier and more confusing. We have some additions to our ship today, and they are stupid cute in the manner of those "got my kid a puppy" videos that are all over the socials, only these might make you cry for entirely different reasons. But we'll see, I guess; they don't have many teeth yet. Anything else I should mention? Oh yeah: happy hols, Space Monkeys.

episode eighty-eight: A hairball in your haggis

We turned five years old yesterday. The podcast, I mean — Oz 9 just turned 5. How we've lasted that long, we have no idea, but we suspect it has something to do with the fact that everyone is slightly fried from the pandemic and not giving real life 100% of their attention just now. And that's cool. Real life can be a bit of a turd on a hot plate now and again, so suspending reality right alongside disbelief seems like a healthy decision. All of which to say, thanks for hanging out with us. Gravity — both the being-serious kind and the falling-down kind — is not something we handle well. You clearly don't either, and we're happy you chose to unfurl your freak flag across the nose of the 9. High five, space monkey. We wouldn't be here without you. And the healer pod. You've been listening to: ---Kevin Hall as Greg ---David S Dear as Doctor Theo Bromae ---Bonnie Brantley as Jessie ---Shannon Perry as Olivia and Madeline ---Tim Sherburn as Colin ---Eric Perry as Dr von Haber Zetzer ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---Kyle Jones is Narrator Two and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator Our music is composed and performed by John Faley; [Lucas Elliott] (https://www.lucaselliottart.com/) creates our artwork.

episode eighty-seven: Why does the mustard matter?

Remember those days, hanging out at the mall, thinking Spencer's Gifts was the height of counter-culture because they had festive roach clips? Yeah, me neither. I spent all my time at Waldenbooks. Anyway, get ready for a trip backwards in time to the mall. I can almost smell the Orange Julius and Cinnabon (which reminded me that I made coffee that was currently cooling in the other room, dammit. I'm back now) and hear the yelps as another pre-teen gets their ears pierced at Claire's. There's a very confused security guard -slash-sommelier, some moaning, and somebody ends up with an earring in their forehead. (Now taking bets on who THAT turns out to be.) Because you haven't got the sense nature gave a goat, you're listening to: ---Chrisi Talyn Saje as Julie ---Sarah Rhea Werner as Pipistrelle ---Eric Perry as Joe ---Aaron Clark as Le Bichon Frise ---Shannon Perry as Madeline and Olivia ---Lee Shackleford as Pluto ---introducing the Narrator's kiddo, Michaela Nadolny Gourley as Emma, the Counter Girl and ---John Dowgin of Mission: Rejected as Cyril the Security Guy. ---Kyle Jones is Narrator Two, and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator Our music is composed and performed by John Faley; [Lucas Elliott] (https://www.lucaselliottart.com/) creates our artwork.

episode eighty-six: Spike the gargling cow

Continuing in our endeavor to educate the public, much of the cowboy vernacular here is authentic. Well, some of it. "Brown gargle," for example, is totally legit. Should it come up on Jeopardy at some point, we expect compensation. The crew continue to explore the Oz 9, sometimes voluntarily. We know these stupid sandwich machines are trying to tell us something, but knowing that and actually understanding what that "something" is are two different things, and let's face it, this bunch have only just managed speech.

Bonus: Oz 9 Meet the Characters

Honestly, there's just nothing good to be gained from listening to this. It's a bunch of people old enough to know better being very silly while affecting various accents (with varying degrees of success). Good ahead and listen if you want to, but please wear headphones and do something redemptive with your hands, like making food for unhoused people or picking your nose. We'll all feel better about it. Much thanks to Sarah Golding, to whom all credit (and frankly, blame) belongs. Yer ever-lovin', Crew Learn more about your ad choices.

Bonus: Meet Jonathan Pezza of Curious Matter Anthology!

I know, I know, I skip a lot of bonus episodes too, but srsly, give this one a listen. Not only is Jonathan smarter than the entire crew of the Oz 9 concurrently and consecutively (yes, low bar, but still), he's also got really fun things to tell us about. Hear the interview, then for goodness' sake, stick around and hear his full-cast, immersive audio adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut's "Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow." Thanks as ever to John Faley, for the gorgeous Oz 9 music!

episode eighty-five: Dirty, greasy oligarchs

Exploring the Oz 9 isn't like exploring brave new worlds in the manner of highly questionable colonialists of eras past. Except for the alligators. And the swampy bits. Also not knowing what's safe to eat (hint: not bloody much). And the near-fatal encounters on a daily basis.  OK, so it's actually quite a bit like exploring brave new worlds, except for the bravery. Just... listen to the episode. Try to stay out of the quagmires, and if you do get quagged, at least wipe your feet before you go wandering around the ship.  You've been listening to ---Eric Perry as Joe ---Bonnie Brantley as Lady Nibble Biscuit and Jessie ---Tim Sherburn as Colin ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---Shannon Perry as Madeline and Olivia ---Special thanks to J Michael DeAngelis from Mission: Rejected for taking on the role of The Cowboy. ---Kyle Jones is Narrator 2, and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator.

episode eighty-four: Would it help if I spoke stupid?

Exploration of the Oz 9 continues, and it's not going well. Though we did find some goldfish. And some bumper cars.  Traveling via vending machine is just unpredictable and not nearly as filling as you might imagine, but the crew are blundering around the ship from room to room and sandwich to sandwich, flirting with cowboys and this sentence is a bit long so I'm stopping now.  You've been listening to ---Eric Perry as Joe ---Bonnie Brantley as Jessie and Lady Nibble-Biscuit ---Chrisi Talyn Saje as Julie ---Kevin Hall as Greg ---Shannon Perry as Olivia and Madeline ---Sarah Rhea Werner as Pipistrelle ---David S Dear as Dr Theo Bromae ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---Aaron Clark as Le Bichon Frise ---Kyle Jones is Narrator Two, and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator Our theme and other music is composed and performed by John Faley.

episode eighty-three: In short, she is baked

I went back and read the opening paragraph that was here originally, and even I don't understand it, so I must have been really tired or possibly in a hostage situation when I wrote it. Anyway, it's gone, and though this means the subtitle now makes zero sense, it's still an improvement. In this episode, Olivia's I-drops (iDrops?) have gotten mixed up with some other substances, and, well, if you thought added chaos might cancel out existing chaos....nope. It just piles on. You've been listening to: ---Eric Perry as Dr. von Haber Zetzer and Joe ---Shannon Perry as Olivia and Madeline ---Sarah Rhea Werner as Pipistrelle ---Chrisi Talyn Saje as Julie ---David S Dear as Dr Theo Bromae ---Bonnie Brantley as Jessie ---Kevin Hall as Greg ---Tim Sherburn as Colin ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---Aaron Clark as Le Bichon Frise ---Kyle Jones as Narrator 2 and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator.

episode eighty-one: Hangover remedies and really good sunscreen

Yes, I KNOW we said January, but hey, it's January somewhere, right? The Oz 9 crew are finally (?) done with their plant-based emergency and have broken free of the Milky Way Galaxy. They're currently lurking in a galaxy that (if you're looking at it sideways and are 8 years old) has a vaguely rude shape. That should keep them entertained for a while. Anyway, they might actually get off the 9 and explore a strange new world here soon, so now's probably a good time to say goodbye. Before they, you know, poke an alien. Please stay through the end credits to hear a very cool trailer for a very good show. And we haven't gotten any reviews for, like, AGES, sooooo, if you wanted to, you could, like, leave us one or something. No biggie. You've been listening to: ---Tim Sherburn as Colin ---Shannon Perry as Madeline and Olivia ---Bonnie Brantley as Jessie ---Chrissi Talyn Saje as Julie ---Eric Perry as Joe ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---David S Dear as Dr Theo Bromae ---Kevin Hall as Greg ---Kyle Jones as Narrator 2, and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator.

ANYWAY, if you're familiar with podcasts [A Ninth World Journal] (https://ninthworldjournal.com/) or [Deconstructive Criticism] (https://dcritpodcast.com/) , you've already enjoyed the work of our own Dr. Theo Bromae, better known as David S.

Bonus: Enough with the toad orgy, Two

If you struggled through the classically complex and layered story of the last four seasons, you're not alone. It was, as Mrs Sheffield has it, "more twisty-turny than my graduate teaching assistant's insides after my AP Honours' Intestinal Inversion lecture and practicuum."  So Dr. Charles Tucket, who you may remember from another hiatus episode, The Oz 8000 Biosphere: Portrait of a Refuge, has been unthawed once again to provide some much-needed and hopefully not teeth-grittingly dull exposition and explanation. Good luck. Take notes. You've been listening to: ---Kyle Jones as the tour guide and Narrator Two ---David S Dear as Dr. Charlie Tucket, and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator Our theme and other music is composed and performed by John Faley.

episode seventy-nine: Sand where no man is making pearls

It's possible someone dies in this episode. I mean, it's possible someone dies in EVERY episode — it's really pretty astonishing when no one does — so you should probably pay attention today so you understand the chatter around the old fishbowl at work tomorrow. Today's bonus information: a really tightly woven Italian suit can protect against some wimpier weaponry.  And just like that, another player is removed from the board. One episode left in Season Four, space monkeys. Will anyone survive? You've been listening to ---Kevin Hall as Felonius and Greg ---Sarah Golding as Mrs Sheffield ---Eric Perry as Mr. Southers, Dr. von Haber Zetzer and Joe ---Sarah Rhea Werner as Pipistrelle ---Shannon Perry as Madeline ---Tim Sherburn as Colin ---David S Dear as Dr. Theo Bromae ---Bonnie Brantley as Jessie ---Aaron Clark as Le Bichon Frise and Ben ---Chrisi Talyn Saje as Julie ---Kyle Jones as Narrator 2, and ---Chris Nadolny Gourley is your Narrator Our spectacular artwork is by Lucas Elliott; all this gorgeous music is by John Faley. Dialogue editing is from the brilliant Sarah Golding, and sound design from the glorious Oliver Morris.
