Behind the Ostium with Team Ostium Part 1
Ostium Podcast
Earlier this summer, Team Ostium had the chance to sit down and have a nice long chat. You’ll get to hear from Georgia Mckenzie, who performs the character Monica, Chris Fletcher who performs the character Jake, and myself, Alex C. Telander. I write and produce the show, and also do the voice of Dave/Steve. In the first part of this special Behind the Ostium, we all talk about what’s been going on in our lives in 2019 and what we’re working on now. If you enjoy this chat, you should really consider becoming a patron of Ostium. For just $2 a month, you can get access to the entire Behind the Ostium series. We cover all of season one, as Duane and I talk about each episode, and right now we’re working through our World Building series. You’ll also get access to all the Ostium Files, with news ones coming, outtakes, and lots more. Plus, by supporting Ostium you’ll help fund the show and help pay our actors. You can find all this and more at patreon.com/ostiumpodcast.
