From the Just A Story team, comes a weekly, serialized experimental storytelling podcast which explores historical legends through the artifacts on display in the Audio Dime Museum. Part guided tour, part radio drama; each episode presents the curious story of one object from the collection. Meet your guide on this journey, The Curator, and learn her secrets as you delve into the world of possibility, magic and the unknown. Merging the suspenseful style of mystery with the conventions of ghost stories and the peculiarity that only historical fact can provide, this podcast is not for the faint of heart. Please begin at the beginning, with the *PROLOGUE* and proceed through the collection accordingly. Unlike most stories, this one does not improve when listened to in reverse.
I finished AUDIO DIME MUSEUM: CARNIVALE a while back but purposely delayed posting anything about it because I'm unsure if there'll be more episodes or I'd production halted?
Anyway, AUDIO DIME MUSEUM: CARNIVALE is an anthology of sorts featuring anecdotal accounts of some random artifact that usually has some morbid or dark background. This podcast reminds me of those defunct TV series Warehouse 13/Friday the 13th with its supernatural slant and dark magicks. Definitely right up my alley as a few of the stories are hair-raising and very disturbing like serial murders and cannibalism.
