The short is in the midst of production and we have a wealth of stories to tell: from the multiple scripts that led us to this one crystallized tale, to the big changes to characters, to suiting up for performance capture, and much more!Flash-forward to the present as Cap, Doug, and Producer, John La Valle give a spoiler-free, birds-eye view of how this project came together and who's involved. And then flash-back as we catch you up on what we've been up to...

Estelle Thorpe’s motley band of curiosity seekers uncovered more than they bargained for. Their fanciful investigation of occult curios led to a madwoman’s plot to summon an unholy entity. Miraculously, the team staved off the apocalypse and survived... but not unscathed…Now that the immediate danger has passed, they've got more than a few questions about the sinister and disturbing whys and wherefores that set them on this dire quest in the first place. Are there answers to be found? And if so, are our investigators prepared to face them?Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program t-shirts:https://bit.ly/2XXa8NoCredits:Written by:Cap Blackard and Luke StramCast (In Order of Appearance):Cap Blackard as The Narrator/ The AnnouncerJoshua LaForge as Moses Ruben CubbenfieldJohn Sebastian LaValle as Oswald SinclairMelody Perera as Anjana RamakrishnanboR as Kenneth RogerNicky Holland as Cherry FeatherbottomCap Blackard as Estelle ThorpeLuke Stram as The KeeperDoug Banks as Baron Percy "T-Bone" BarkerLuke Stram as McLeonardMusical Spotlight: A Little More Life by Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken ToysOriginal Score: Ryan McQuinn and Mike McQuinnSound Design: Colin PetersonEditing: Colin Peterson & Cap BlackardFor links and more info, head to the main episode page:https://nerdyshow.com/2019/03/the-call-of-cthulhu-mystery-program-episode-10-loose-ends For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

The theatre is a magical place. A place where fact becomes fiction, fantasy becomes flesh… the human experience is laid bare! Fitting then that Boston’s Monarch Theater should be the site of a horrendous ritual that also happens to be a stage play... a diabolical work called The King in Yellow.If performed, it wouldn't just be the dénouement for our heroes, but perhaps the world as we know it.Written & Performed by:Luke Stram – The KeeperCap Blackard | boR | Nicky Holland | Joshua LaForge | John Sebastian LaValleCast (In Order of Appearance):Cap Blackard as The Narrator/ The AnnouncerMelody Perera as Anjana RamakrishnanCap Blackard as Estelle ThorpeJonathan Fleming as The BostonianJohn Sebastian LaValle as Oswald SinclairJoshua LaForge as Moses Ruben CubbenfieldNicky Holland as Cherry FeatherbottomboR as Kenneth RogerCynthia Beckert as Mildred EliasLuke Stram as Woodrow EliasJames Barbarossa as Pelham GrenvilleMusical Spotlight: Jolene by Michael KellyOriginal Score: Ryan McQuinn and Mike McQuinnSound Design: Colin PetersonEditing: Colin Peterson & Cap BlackardStory Editing: Cap BlackardFor links and more info, head to the main episode page:https://nerdyshow.com/2019/02/the-call-of-cthulhu-mystery-program-episode-8-denouement For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
The wildly-swinging hits keep on coming! How far will we veer off of our usual platter of geeky chatter? And for how long? Indefinitely?! Well at the very least we'll always stay true to what you've come to expect from us for the past decade: surreal tangents and strange comedy. In this episode - Cap, La Valle, and Doug team up for a creative experiment in which Cap plays a high-powered Hollywood executive type taking pitches from hapless writers.Which of these absurd ideas will get green lit for production? Whose hopes and dreams will get eaten alive by the Hollywood monster? How far will these poor saps go to break a tie and "win" this pitch party?For links and more info, head to the main episode page:https://nerdyshow.com/2019/02/nerdy-show-pitching-in-the-wind/
