Utah Wheels and Rails, Part 1

 

Turn down the lights! You’ve tuned in to Ricochet Silent Radio, our long-running theater of the mind. Once again, Tales of the Pit conjures up images you can’t see, and sounds you can’t hear, in the first half of this week’s adventure, Utah Wheels and Rails, a work of fan fiction featuring Ricochet members in the Beehive State.  And now, our presentation.

(Music cue) (Sound of a clock ticking. Then sounds of a cat.) (Voice of Jason Rudert) “Every cat I had would do that weird, deep, sorrowful meow when they’d killed something, or maybe when a mouse or bird would sneak in. I thought of it as their bragging meow, but you could also think of it as a high-pitched roar of triumph.”

Silent Radio Is Back!

 

Get ready to gather around the old Philco console and turn down the lights! On Wednesday and Thursday this week, March 24 and 25, you’re invited to tune in to Ricochet Silent Radio, our long running theater of the mind. Once again, Tales of the Pit conjures up images you can’t see, and sounds you can’t hear, in our newest radio-scripted adventure, Utah Wheels and Rails, a work of fan fiction featuring actual Ricochet members.

In today’s world, what does it take to be actually countercultural? Culturally, Salt Lake City is a world away from Hollywood. Utah is (mostly) new territory for RSR; in 2016, we published a satirical takedown of the Sundance Film Festival. The new story reflects interest, respect and sometimes amusement at the very different ways of that city, as well as being a tribute to some of the cyber-friendships we’ve formed online. Who are the real non-conformists? You’ll find them right here.
