  2. A Caribbean Mystery – Agatha Christie – BBC Radio Drama

    An exotic holiday for Miss Marple is ruined when a retired major is killed… As Miss Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier’s yarn about a strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major’s attention wandered. He never did finish the story.

    Agatha Christie’s novel, dramatised in five parts by Michael Bakewell. Starring June Whitfield as Miss Marple.

    1: The peace of a beautiful tropical island is shattered by the photograph of a murderer.

    2: Was Major Paigrave’s sudden death accidental, or was it murder?

    3: The authorities have been called in and a murder investigation is underway.

    4: Miss Marple needs an ally.

    5 Two murders and now an attempted suicide - are they somehow linked?

  3. Untitled Dungeons & Dragons “Interactive” “Podcast” by Ryan Veeder

    "Unfortunately I never came up with a good title for this, and furthermore it defies categorization in any established taxa of interactive entertainment.

    "Here’s the best way I can describe it: Obviously you have enjoyed watching or listening to people play Dungeons & Dragons on YouTube or whatever, but you’ve never experienced it first-hand. By listening to this audio file you can play Dungeons & Dragons with me. (Kind of. I had to make a few adjustments to the D&D rules to accommodate the unconventional format.)

    "I would really appreciate it if any listeners could come up with some terminology to describe this new form of interactive fiction I’ve invented."
