If you have been listening to the news since the highly contagious, Draco Incendia Trychophyton or “Dragonscale” began to spread, you know what kind of panic the world is in.
Today I speak with former MTV VJ, Martha Quinn, now spokesperson for the Free Wolf Island Quarantine and Research Zone, about their search for a cure. And I stumble across the remarkable story of a man named Joe Hill, and a haven that may have found a way to control this deadly catastrophe of spontaneous combustion.
Note from Christopher:
As we celebrate the launch the podcast version of our radio show, we wanted to share with you one of the most popular broadcast episodes from our archives.
This is not it.
We’re not sure where this episode, dated May 2018, came from exactly. I have never been to New England (yet). But it was in the tape archive, and it is an exciting episode to start at, so… here is to hoping that the year 2018 is a better year than 2016. Also note that the broadcast version of this episode must have bleeped out references to the location of the haven: “Camp Windham” for the protection of the survivors. It is broadcast here uncensored in its entirety.
*Our special pilot episode is a fan work celebrating Joe Hill’s new bestselling novel The Fireman. Order yourself a copy from Copperfeild’s Books or your favorite bookstore.
