Introducing The Black Lodge Complaint Department

Black Lodge Complaint DepartmentFrom all of us here at CalamityCast, thank you for listening to the first season of Spacemerica! New episodes will be arriving in the not too distant future…

In the meantime, be sure to check out Love & Lust, a new show from the creative team behind Dick of the Week. This 12 episode smutcast is a radio drama filled to the brim with romance, laughs, and all of those wonderfully awkward moments that come with new relationships.

We’re also excited to announce the arrival of The Black Lodge Complaint Department! Adam, a long-time fan of Twin Peaks, has finally convinced Daniel to watch it all. With The Black Lodge Complaint Department, Daniel and Adam will break down every episode of this seminal cult television series from the perspective of a loving fan and a grumpy Twin Peaks newbie. Episode Zero of The Black Lodge Complaint Department will be available in August, and Episode 1 will be available on Monday September 3rd.

CalamityCast’s newest show – DICK OF THE WEEK!

From the creative minds of Love & Lust, CalamityCast’s upcoming Smutcast, comes Dick of the Week, our sexiest podcast yet! Join Stephanie, The Duchess, and Liz as they chat and laugh about all of their favorite, and not so favorite, aspects of the Romance genre. Each episode will dive into their own personal experiences with reading and writing within this genre, and why they think it’s time to no longer consider romance just a guilty pleasure!

Dick of the Week will post every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month starting on the ultimate day of love: Valentine’s Day. We invite you to pour a glass of wine or brew a cup of tea and snuggle up with us as we get down and dirty about romance!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Welcome friends, to CalamityCast, the new home of A Beginner’s Guide to Interplanetary Destruction, as well as bunch of upcoming content! That’s right, we’re no longer one show, we’re expanding into an entire podcast network!

After we wrapped on A Beginner’s Guide, conversations quickly turned to “what next?” And the group had a lot of new ideas. Not only that, but we brought in more people, and they had their own ideas, too! Awesome, right? THE ANSWER IS YES. We decided that, instead of making shows one at a time, it might be better to split up, and hit our audience with MORE shows MORE frequently, and thus CalamityCast was born.

Obviously, we take our name from the characters that started it all – A Beginner’s Guide’s heroes THE HARBINGERS OF CALAMITY. And while that show has been put to bed, it still inspires other things we’re doing. So let this first post be, not just an announcement for the network, but also the announcement for our next show – SPACEMERICA!

Spacemerica “In SPACEMERICA, A motley group of future-humans from space search for treasure, and a sense of purpose, across the ruins of the once great nation of the United States of America. Along with the assistance of Ignatius Babcock, traveling salesmen and new Earth friend, the heroes make their way across the country to meet with a man that claims to know the location of THE MACGUFFIN, the treasure they seek most.”

In addition to SPACEMERICA, which will post bi-monthly, there will be a bi-monthly companion show, Good Morning, SPACEMERICA!, where we’ll chat about the show, interview the actors, and even talk with SPACEMERICA’s musical contributors!

If you can believe it, we have even more shows waiting in the wings, nearly ready to be announced! We’re really excited to finally be announcing this, and we hope old fans and new are ready to hear what we have to offer. And remember, we’re not rebranding A Beginner’s Guide to Interplanetary Destruction. That show was our first, and we’ll always love it forever and ever. CalamityCast is an expansion on that show’s original idea – to write strong, hilarious, scripted podcasts that showcase St. Louis-based comedy writers and performers!

Thanks everyone, and stay tuned for more announcements soon!
