Frequency Earth 110: Ghost & The Machine

We did it! We put up a fantastic live show on Saturday and here is the season finale of Frequency Earth! What an accomplishment! And now for a nice long rest of many years…

Wait! No! We’re still making season 2! We’ll have some gap weeks coming up, and some bonus items to throw into the feed to make the wait more bearable. Until then, I’m extremely happy that we’ve finally put a proper cap on this project, and extremely pleased that people are listening to them. Now I just need to take a moment to get caught up on other projects

Frequency Earth 109: Election Season

Big day. Big big day! As we re-release our original series, we’ve been looking forward to transmitting episodes 9 and 10, because they were never released. The scenes aboard the ship were recorded, the transmissions were written, and then for reasons unknown to me now, not all of the transmissions were taped and the shows went on a shelf.

In the run up to writing and recording series 2, we also recorded the missing elements from series 1, using the scripts we had prepared at the time. I don’t think Iron Man 2 had hit theaters yet by the time the script for our scene ‘Doctor Strange’ was written.

Today’s episode features old friends and new, and is in some ways the first ‘new’ episode of the run. Enjoy!

Frequency Earth 108: Robotic Arms

Another one of our pipe dreams in creating this show was that in knowing we had all of electronic media history to play in, we could tune into the other shows our friends were making. We wanted to do a broadcast involving the characters of Doc Mock’s Movie Mausoleum, we traded a dozen emails with the pre-televised Birthday Boys, we made a few gentlemanly passes at the Alexes of Smug Rock Nation. The only one that didn’t turn into a smoldering hole in our production calendar was Diani & Devine, whose Wedding Witch graces episode 108.

Back to School is also an interesting segment because I had nothing to do with it, no input, I just heard it as a final piece in the show. I don’t think we can say that about anything else so far. Oh, except for all the Z-Rob. We once deep-sixed a Z-Rob segment for taking aim at one of our fans, who wrote in to say she didn’t appreciate all the Z-Rob.

Enough reminiscing about the past, let us reminisce of the future! Join us on 9/29 for our live taping at the Pack Theater! We’ll be giving you a preview of our new series, and an opportunity to be a part of the show!

Frequency Earth 107: 100 Days

This show came out of the idea to start a sketch group. I thought I’d get a group together, we’d write stuff, fight over it like you read about in retrospectives on famous sketch groups, and then record stuff. Maybe we could do it every week!

Turns out it’s super hard. After a bunch of failed meetings, I decided it would be faster to just write the whole show myself, and we’d cast performers we knew, who were much happier to lend us just an hour here and there to read words from a page. And with no regular cast we could work with all kinds of people!

So half a dozen episodes in, once we’d decided we were making a good show, and wouldn’t be wasting anyone’s time by involving them, we set our sights higher! I’d had a working relationship with Matts Besser and Walsh of the Upright Citizens Brigade, and both were extremely kind and game to be a part of the show.

Also, we spent years recording all of the pieces for KILL MORE HUMANS, and it’s my favorite in this episode that also features a scene by Asterios Kokkinos, Wondermark’s David Malki !, and YES Network reality star David Brand. Enjoy!
