Cushing Von Heffernan by Nicholas Thurkettle
Earbud Theater
If you've got an injury the medical textbooks can't explain, the person you need is the one who studies all the forbidden textbooks - the famous Professor Cushing Von Heffernan! As brilliant as he is unnecessarily jerky, he lives for the challenge of new and novel wounds and illnesses from the realm of the supernatural. With his partner and closest friend, the 230-year-old Maranda Grosz, and their eager teenage sidekick Rickey, The Professor takes on the puzzling case of a Miss Lonelyhearts with an unusual mark on her arm, and a seductive vampire who swears he never bites without consent. Matthew Henerson, Tosca Minotto, Morgan Lauff, Victoria Martinez, MacLeod Andrews, and Nicholas Thurkettle invite you into the drawing room for a demonstration of the Professor's unsurpassed genius and completely awful manners, in Cushing Von Heffernan: Bite Investigator!
269- Ways of Hearing
99% Invisible
When the tape started rolling in old analog recording studios, there was a feeling that musicians were about to capture a particular moment. On tape, there was no “undo.” They could try again, if they had the time and money, but they couldn’t move backwards. What’s done is done, for better and worse. Digital machines entered the mix in the 1980s, changing the way music was made — machines with a different sense of time. And the digital era has not just altered our tools for working with sound but also our relationship to time itself. Part of the new Radiotopia Showcase, Ways of Hearing is a six-episode series hosted by musician Damon Krukowski (Galaxie 500, Damon & Naomi), exploring the nature of listening in our digital world. Each episode looks at a different way that the switch from analog to digital audio is influencing our perceptions, changing our ideas of Time, Space, Love, Money, Power and Noise. In the digital age, our voices carry further than they ever did before, but how are they being heard? Plus, we have a little bonus, classic episode of 99pi, featuring Sound Opinions. Ways of Hearing

#513: 129 Cars
This American Life
We spend a month at a Jeep dealership on Long Island as they try to make their monthly sales goal: 129 cars. If they make it, they'll get a huge bonus from the manufacturer, possibly as high as $85,000 — enough to put them in the black for the month. If they don't make it, it'll be the second month in a row. So they pull out all the stops.

H.H. Holmes | 35
Hysteria 51
Imagine this Zillow listing: This charming and spacious 3 floor hotel has been lovingly maintained by the original owner for years! Interestingly angled, narrow corridors with…mood lighting. Dead ends and generous stairways that lead nowhere but are nonetheless magical. Many rooms are lined with asbestos-coated steel plates, completely soundproofed, and equipped with special peepholes…some even come with open gas pipes! The second story also features trapdoors, secret passageways, and large greased shafts leading directly to the cellar. The cellar has all the charm of a medieval doctor’s office complete with acid tank, quicklime vats, a dissection table, and an “elasticity determinator" that can stretch guests to twice their normal height. Human body sized furnace in the cellar for those cold Chicago nights. Seller willing to leave all! This was the hotel that America’s first serial killer, HH Holmes built on the south side of Chicago. Holmes and his “murder castle” are thought by some to have been responsible for the deaths of over 200 people during the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. We dive in to the man, the myth, and the castle. Plus, we examine what it takes to create a race of giants, the absolute perfection of a late 1800s mustache, and Conspiracy Bot starts creating his own glitches in the Matrix. All of that and more on the podcast that’s never been to a “murder castle”, but has seen some pretty gnarly things at a Medieval Times – Hysteria 51. To read more from today's expert Adam Selzer, you can find his newest book on Holmes here. http://a.co/cRdkHKF Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
