Episode 23 – Firsts

Does the internet bring us together or keep us isolated? When you learn about the death of a loved one via Facebook, the answer isn’t simple.

Flashing back to our second show, ironically themed “Firsts,” Todd Faulkner reads “Confirmation: Or Mourning Becomes Electronic” written by our own Mike Dressel.

Switching up the stories, Todd Faulkner writes about a life-changing experience – leaving his extended childhood behind when his wife announces that she is pregnant.

If you hear a small child in the background of this recording… well, you can guess how the story ends. Read by Mike Dressel, here is “Pregnancy Panic and the New Voice.”

While you’re on the internet, check out Todd Faulkner’s award-winning paranormal podcast, Uncanny County. This quirky, darkly comic, Southwestern-flavored anthology brings you a new paranormal audio play every month.

NYTI: Fiction Edition Coming Soon!

Jun 17 2015 @ 7:00PM

In June, we like switching-up the switch-up to do something new! We had a blast last year with our LEGACY show at The Brick’s Comic Book Theater Festival.

On June 17th, we are thrilled to present our first ever Summer “Fiction Edition.”

We’ve assembled 4 fabulous NYTI alums who switched-up their true-life tales with us previously and are now busy taking on this new

genre. However, our motto still applies: What better way to inform your story than hearing someone else perform your story?

Raquel I. Penzo, author and producer of La Pluma y La Tinta. Upcoming event on 6/25: New Voices in the Boroughs: Queens at Q.E.D. Astoria

Jim Cairl, co-writer with our own Kelly Jean on the web series Intersection

Come out for our Summer “Fiction Edition” and help us celebrate 3 years of switched-up storytelling!
