Audio Drama Debut - Transcript - S01E20

All of the words I said out loud for S01E20 of Audio Drama Debut, my podcast showcasing new audio drama, fiction and RPG trailers.

SFX - Background of crowd noises. Frequent beeps as people use a keycard to get into the library.

The Librarian: Hello there.

Come in.

Come in.

Come in.

Come in.

Help yourself to a doughnut from the table.

Come in.

Come in.

Come in.

Come in.

SFX - Card not working

Not working? Just try swiping it again.

SFX - Card not working

No, no, other way round. There you go.

Come in.

Come in.

Come in.

Come in.

The rhubarb discussion group's over there.

Come in.

Come in.

Come in.

SFX - Card not working

What?

Where are you?

Why, the Library of Audio Fiction of course. Did you not know that? Ah, just following the crowd, eh? Saw a queue and couldn't resist joining? Yes, I've had days like that. Well, all these people are here for our dramas, books, stories, actual plays and a few other things. We've opened back up very recently, and obviously people have missed us.

No, I think we're fine with this many people. I'm sure the Director would have told me if there was anything we had to do.

Now, since you're new here, maybe I can make a few recommendations?

Would you like to listen to this show about someone getting pregnant in rather difficult circumstances? Or perhaps this one about romance in the Big Apple? Or perhaps this, about a people struggling to avoid becoming red?

No? Something shorter, to get an idea what this is like? Well perhaps...

SFX: Tannoy bong.

The Director (over a tannoy) : This is the Library Director.

I am declaring a DD904 . You know what you did.

Will all library patrons please head to the nearest exit in the calmest possible manner. Immediately.

Public outreach team, please release the cataloguers.

SFX: Metal shutters clanging into place. Screaming, as a horde of people try to escape the grim inevitability of being sorted by genre.

The Librarian: Yes, sorry, looks like you'll have to go. Oh blast, what's wrong with that turnstile. No no , you're stuck there until we can free you. Either someone will have to unlock it, or perhaps when the visitors disperse, you can finally get in and then out again.

Tell you what though, while you're there, here's a few short pieces like you wanted. Trailers for new shows.

First, there's this one, called Mondrea Memories.

Then next, we've got Maps of the Lost.

Then this week's RPG is SuperIdols! A narrative play tabletop podcast about aspiring teen idols with superpowers. Join GM ErynCerise and a rotating cast of players for improvised stories with elements of high school comedy, magical girl anime, showbiz drama, and superhero action!

And one from the future, Voidless. After an anomaly seperates Rebel Captain Elyss Glasse from her team, she finds herself in an unknown place with an incomplete mission and a damaged scout ship. Desperate to find her way home, but unable to stop herself reflecting, the Void may not be as desolate as it first appears.

Oh, look at this. It's not just people we've got a lot of this week. How did this extra trailer sneak in here? Finally, this is Tale of the Manticore, another RPG inspired show.

Right, that's your lot for this week. Off you, oh sorry, of course, you can't go. Well, I'm afraid I'll have to leave you here while I go and deal with my internal post. Not got to it in awhile, and it's building up. Nothing important, I'm sure. While you're waiting, please go and like our Twitter feed. It makes our social media team feel all dopamine-y. It's @AudioDramaDebut.

Anyway, cheerio!
