Jack Hardcastle meets his own "Da Vinci Code" (Podcast)

We've finally posted another podcast... That's three of them in total!!!
(At this rate we'll have our whole catalog on line by September 2020...)

Anyhow, you will find our newest podcast on the Radio Memories Network here:

Jack Hardcastle and the case of the Sacred Cold Cream

It featured the voice talents of: Alexandra Boyd Rodgers, Marlene Dooley, Jesse Griffith, Clark Hackney, Katherine Johnson, Bob White and Ken Raney. Live sound effects were performed by Angie Payne and Jennifer Parson. It runs just under 30 minutes.

Jack Hardcastle is a hard-boiled, gritty cosmetics salesman who owns a shop that's open 24 hours. He savagely provides health and beauty aids to a city that pretends it doesn't care.

In this episode, recorded February 2005, Jack finds himself in the middle of a twisty turny murdery mystery surrounding a sacred cold cream and the supernatural powers it might have. The cream is rumored to have been Marie Antoinette's, and is kept in a "grail"... and Jack is framed for a murder... then he's rescued from the police by a woman... and they both have to find out if the cold cream really has an age reversing formula... sound familiar?

Sure it does...

So check out our courageous attempt at a "lifeless adaptation that reveals the flaws of its source"... it's all in good fun.
