Posted By on November 15, 2020

This week on the Sonic Society Jack and David present a trip back to swinging London in the early 1970s and meet Roy Steel, ex – big game hunter, and Lorrimer Chesterfield, a brain in the shape of a man. Together they are The Monster Hunters from Definitely Human Productions. Their mission: to protect the country from vampires, werewolves and a whole pantheon of unmentionable terrors and the pilot of Nowhere, On Air from Jessica Syratt! Semi-late night community radio broadcasts from a strange little town in the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta (aka, not just the middle of nowhere, but nowhere itself). Nothing ever happens here. Certainly nothing weird. Why would you even suggest that? If you like mysteries, conspiracies, the absurd, and Canadians, Braedon, Alberta might be the place for you! It’s Audio Drama Time!
