A way-cool mystery audio program: WORMWOOD

Wormwood logo copyright Habit Forming Films LLCI’m totally crazy about Wormwood: A Serialized Mystery. It’s a serialized audio drama, of the mystery/horror genre, podcasted weekly. It’s the best example I know of how it must have been in the 1930s and 40s, breathlessly awaiting the next adventure of The Shadow, or I Love a Mystery, or The Green Hornet.

… A psychic vision of a drowned womanleads the mysterious occultist and psychologist, Dr.  Xander Crow, to the town of Wormwood, a creepy little burg that David Lynch would feel right at home at (until it spooked him sufficiently to leave). Various soap-operatic situations abound; the town has a local monster, the “Muddyman,” perhaps an urban legend, perhaps… not. People die in unusual ways. People inexplicably disappear. Mayberry, this ain’t.
