If you are a fan of old time radio shows like I am, I strongly encourage you to check out Decoder Ring Theatre.
The Toronto-based Decoder Ring Theatre is the brainchild of Gregg Taylor and offers two different programs, “The Red Panda Adventures” and “Black Jack Justice.”
“The Red Panda Adventures,” inspired by the likes of The Shadow, The Green Hornet and The Batman, chronicles the exploits of The Red Panda, “Canada’s greatest superhero,” and his female sidekick, The Flying Squirrel, as they fight crime in 1930s Toronto.
Meanwhile, “Black Jack Justice” features the hard-boiled detective duo of Jack Justice and Trixie Dixon in a show that harkens back to the old-time radio adventures of gumshoes Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe.
These are well-written, well-acted shows and you should really give them a try.
We’ll be discussing Decoder Ring Theatre in the next “Technology and the Arts” podcast, which will also include a 5 1/2-minute excerpt from an episode of “The Red Panda Adventures.”
Plus, Gregg Taylor will be a guest on our podcast in a few weeks, and I am greatly looking forward to that.
