Welcome to a very special episode of the Coffee Sprudgecast. For this show we’re trying something a little different, so get a little snack or beverage ready—maybe a nice cup of coffee—and settle in. Here at Sprudge, we are lifelong fans of the radio play — a lost art that enjoyed its golden era in the 1920s and 1930s, before the popular adoption of television. In some ways, today’s podcast boom is reminiscent of these radio days, where shows like The Shadow, Dragnet, and Dimension X captured the national imagination. This week’s episode of The Coffee Sprudgecast is inspired by this era of radio, but with a thoroughly modern twist. What you’re about to hear is an audio reimagining of an original piece of horror fiction that first appeared on Sprudge in the fall of 2018. Authored by Sprudge Editor At Large Michelle Johnson, the piece is called “The Panel” — and it’s performed on this episode of the Coffee Sprudgecast by audio actor Nova Omega.
