A podcast featuring audio drama, dark comedy, and other unexpected vignettes from Corvallis.
This is episode 1 of The Spirit of the Forest, an audio drama/comedy created by Oregon resident Dan Crall, which reflects upon the sadness, absurdity, and normalcy of modern life.
This episode features a professor and his existential, perhaps misguided student figuring out an academic plan, two male lovers in a quarrel, an unsympathetic doctor taking his morbidly obese patient for a walk in the woods, and an evangelical reparative gay therapy camp counselor taking a teenage camp attendee for a walk, resulting in an unexpected twist.
Featuring the music of Raan and Electric Bird Noise, as well as the acting talent of Dan Crall, Chris Foulke, Trevor Heald, Cookie Johnson, and John Knight, this pilot episode was recorded in December 2014 in Corvallis, Oregon.
