A podcast featuring audio drama, dark comedy, & other unexpected vignettes from Corvallis & beyond.
This is episode 5 of The Spirit of the Forest, an audio drama/comedy created by Corvallis resident Dan Crall, which focuses on the sadness, absurdity, and normalcy of modern life.
This episode features a walk in the forest with a man of peace, a man of wisdom, a man of judgment. We also drop in on the religious channel WIRD and their sister station WORD for some whacky times with street preacher Mikhail Savenko, followed by a broadcast from the 3rd Baptist Church and their ecstatic representatives. We finish with a narrative of a man who's never been quite the same since the accident. This episode blends fiction and reality. Radio parody and introspection. And material for the "other" or "various" category.
Featuring the music of Bestia Centauri, Dan Crall, and Stone Glass Steel, as well as the acting talent of John Knight, Zachary Pierce, Dan Crall, Mikhail Savenko, and numerous voices from Oregon State University, this episode was mostly recorded in late February 2015 in Corvallis, Oregon.
