Introducing: The Road of Shadows

Today we'd like to introduce you to: The Road Of Shadows. The Road of Shadows is a mystery and suspense audio drama about a man who finds himself on the run in a small town in the mountains, pursued by mysterious creatures that only he can see. It's set in 1984, so if you like the retro vibe of S1 of Mockery Manor, this has some of the same flavour. We're in a small mountain town community, so it's got that wonderful, Twin Peaks / X Files style eeriness that's just always so much fun.  It's a beautifully made show, great music and sound design, and it comes to you from Beyond The Dark Productions, who also make The Strata, a wonderful dystopian sci-fi which you may also enjoy.  There are two full seasons out now, and you can find it wherever you get your podcasts, or, as usual, by tapping the link in the show notes. And now here's episode 1 of The Road of Shadows, called Misty Pines. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Introducing: Josie’s Lonely Hearts Club

Hey everyone, Laurence here, and we've got another recommendation for you! We'd like to introduce you to Josie's Lonely Hearts Club - a semi-improvised audio drama set in the studio of New Mexico’s 3rd-best romantic advice call-in show. On-air, listeners eavesdrop as Josie squares off against top improvisers and her engineer Frank. Each episode’s off-air vignettes chart her journey from melancholy Joanne Holtzinger to nationally syndicated sensation Josie Heller. What results is an often hilarious and surprisingly human show exploring the risks we idiots take every time we fall in or out of love. It's a really lovely vibe, this show. The performers slip between the scripted and improvised sections so seamlessly that it all just feels so believable, like it was meant to be. This is a cosy late-night drive time listen if there ever was one.  Season 1 of Josie's Lonely Hearts Club is out in its entirety and Season 2 is releasing weekly right now. You can find it wherever you get your podcasts or by tapping the link in the show notes of this episode. And now here's episode 1 of Josie's Lonely Hearts Club, called: Let's Jam It Up, Sluts!  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Mockery Manor meets... Midst!

We're delighted to be bringing you one of our long-time favourite audio dramas - the wild and wonderful science-fantasy-western Midst. But before that, we sat down with the show's three mysterious creators Xen, Sara and Matt, to have a good old chat about the making of both Midst and Mockery Manor! We've been fans of each others' shows from their very beginnings, and it was such a pleasure to finally meet them. A little about Midst: The small desert planet of Midst spins on the border between two halves of the cosmos: the dazzling Un and the mysterious Fold. Life is simple for most of the planet’s inhabitants… until an influential civilization known as the Trust takes an interest in Midst and sparks an unexpected chain of events, intertwining the lives of three complicated antiheroes. Also, unrelated to any of that, Midst’s moon is about to fall out of the sky and cause reality to eat itself alive, so that’s not great either. Unsolved murders, cult brainwashing, and supernatural darkness all combine to create a clusterfuck of cosmic proportions. As always, you can find Midst wherever you get your podcasts. New Episodes of Midst release every Wednesday on your favorite podcast streaming platform, the Critical Role YouTube Channel, and for subscribers on Midst.co Subscribe to Midst Support Lindsay and Laurence on Ko-fi!

Introducing: Dirt

Hey listeners, Laurence here! We hope you enjoyed the Mockery S3 finale and we'll have more surprises for you very soon. In the meantime, we'd like to introduce another Fable and Folly show that we really love - Dirt: An Audio Drama. Dirt is set in modern day Washington state, and it follows Joseph Elo, a Seattle-based tech celebrity who one day receives a mysterious letter in the mail from his grandfather—who died 30 years ago.The letter contains vague clues about the need to find things that may be hidden in various locations.As Joseph becomes more interested, he struggles to maintain a balance between his newfound obsession and his work responsibilities, and ultimately has to decide what he wants to do with the rest of his life. This is a really interesting story - essentially an earthbound mystery, but with hints of the fantastical as well. To me it feels very literary: something about the first person narration, the slow delve into Joseph's past and all the family lore, the slight sense of the surreal mingling with some really fun comedy moments - it all feels like a novel that you can't put down. It's a long form, slow burn mystery, and the more time you put into it, the more hooked you'll get. And by the end of the first episode, you know you'll have to keep listening to find out where this bizarre treasure hunt is going to lead.  And speaking as a Brit, it really makes me want to go and visit the Pacific northwest.  Tap this link to subscribe to Dirt - An Audio Drama And now, sit back and go and a mad adventure into Dirt - An Audio Drama.

Introducing: Midnight Burger

Subscribe to Midnight Burger here! Today it’s our great pleasure to introduce a gorgeous fiction podcast that’s taking the indie audio drama world by storm - Midnight Burger.  When Gloria took a waitressing job in a diner outside of Phoenix, she didn't realize she was now an employee of Midnight Burger, a time-traveling, dimension-spanning diner. Every day Midnight Burger appears somewhere new in the cosmos along with its staff: a galactic drifter, a rogue theoretical physicist, a sentient old-timey radio, and some guy named Caspar. No one knows who built Midnight Burger or how it works, but when it appears, there's always someone around who could really use a cup of coffee. We love Midnight Burger. It’s one of the warmest, most thoughtful and sharply written fiction pods around, and it calls to mind all the best parts of the Hitchhiker’s Guide and Red Dwarf while still being very much it’s own thing. It’s no surprise it’s become an instant hit, having recently passed a million downloads.

He tells them that the exits to Koschei the Deathless are all sealed, and his men have the ride surrounded. But Jenkins has a problem. Margot is here. Jenkins goes into the fray to retrieve Margot and escape before the final phase of his plan - explosives. As he leaves the control room, Jenkins gives Parker a message to read on the tannoy if he does not return with Margot. It will help her escape, but it's something only she would understand. Meanwhile - JJ, Bette, Gretchen, Thomaz and Davina are all still trapped in the building. Watching on the monitors, Parker is horrified to see the twins looking at one of Jenkins' bombs.

S2 E14 - The Haunted Masquerade (Part 1)

Previously: as the Committee arrives at Koschei the Deathless for Hilda's meeting, JJ and Bette sneak in via a side entrance to try and rescue Gretchen. They stumble into the ride, and find themselves in a creepy but familiar kitchen, occupied by an animatronic witch. To her horror, JJ realises that the witch is modelled on Dorothy - Margot's mother, and the twins' grandmother. JJ recalls the Dreamland dollhouse, shown to her by Dorothy moments before she was murdered by Matty. This kitchen is identical to that of the dollhouse. It's Mockery Manor. The twins hop on a passing Egg Buggy, and discover that each room is a distorted, nightmarish reflection of the rooms of Mockery Manor. As they near the grand ballroom, the twins hop out of the Buggy to stay unnoticed. They are shocked to see Margot and Davina among the Committee members. Why are they there? And who's looking after baby Freddie? Meanwhile, Hilda is losing communication with her security unit as they are each taken out by Jenkins' men. "We're under attack" she radios to the others. "Retreat to Koschei and seal it. No-one gets in, no-one gets out. And if you see anyone you don't recognise... execute on sight." In this episode: Party time.

S2 E13 - The Whirr Of The Egg Buggy

Previously: Bodankho's shooter is revealed to be Hilda, accompanied by Thomaz (her reluctant henchman). Hilda is convinced that Gretchen and Bohdanko are working for Jenkins, so Thomaz is tasked with taking Gretchen as hostage to the Committee meeting at The Palace of Koschei The Deathless. But JJ, hiding behind a sofa, evades capture. Meanwhile, Parker frantically searches the park for a phone, and runs into Jenkins and his silent muscle, "Max". It emerges that Jenkins has a crack team of trained operatives scattered throughout the park. As they approach Koschei the Deathless, Parker notices that the ride building is a replica of the Mockery Manor house. Jenkins reveals that he and Hilda were stationed at the Schloss during the war, and that the pair went on to design the theme park together. But Hilda has betrayed him. And not only that, Jenkins says... Hilda was responsible for the murder of Parker's father. Armed with Eric's gun, Bette bursts into the Schloss' secret rooms to find JJ standing over Bohdanko's body. Together, they briefly consider fleeing, before finally resolving to go and rescue Gretchen. Over at Koschei, the Committee members are welcomed by Hilda. They will ride the "egg buggies" through the attraction and disembark at the Masquerade Ball for a buffet reception. But among the Committee members are two surprising guests - Margot and Davina.

S2 E12 - Shattered Mirror

Previously: Oh no! At the schloss, JJ, Bette, Gretchen and Parker are held at gunpoint by Bohdanko, the Russian gangster who has been chasing JJ across Europe in search of the stolen Vermeer. While Bohdanko demands that JJ take him to the painting, Gretchen tries to throw him off the scent. He is not so easily duped, and they are both taken hostage. Bette and Parker are left tied up in JJ's room, but they are rescued by Dodgy Eric, who has been playing dead on the bed for some time. Parker runs off to call the police, while Bette takes Eric's gun and goes in search of JJ and Gretchen. Meanwhile, JJ and Gretchen try and stall for time with an ever-more-dangerous Bohdanko. After several failed attempts to lose him, Bohdanko's phone rings. It becomes clear that he has double-crossed his boss, and is planning to steal the Vermeer for himself. In a desperate attempt to lose him, JJ and Gretchen lead Bohdanko to Wizzzard Entertainment's hidden rooms in the schloss. But when they get there, JJ realises they are not alone. She hides behind a sofa, and calls for Gretchen to do the same. Suddenly, Bohdanko is shot by an unknown someone...

S2 E11 - Bloodied Hands

Previously: Parker bumps into Bette at the entrance to Dunkelschloss. They hide from Hilda by running into The Little Mermaid's Underwater Cave System, which, they notice, has the exact same layout as Mockery Manor's Dreamland. Parker tells Bette his suspicions - that Jenkins might had his dad killed, and that he is running some sort of shady business with Hilda. Bette explains that she eavesdropped on Hilda's meeting with "some Italian guy who wouldn't shut up about Beluga whales". Parker recognises that to be Giuseppe, and it all clicks: Wizzzard Entertainment is running a Europe-wide smuggling ring... and Hilda is going to dispose of Jenkins. Meanwhile, in the schloss, Gretchen has stumbled across a hidden room, where Giuseppe and two other Wizzzard park managers are chatting. They don't know why Hilda has called them all to a meeting, but Giuseppe says he is planning to retire. They discover Gretchen listening, and she runs off to tell JJ what she heard. Of course, JJ doesn't want to know - much to Gretchen's frustration. With Dodgy Eric (currently unconscious on JJ's bed) having found her a buyer for the Vermeer, JJ says she just wants to sell her painting, grab Bette, and get out of there. An irate Bette bursts in, accompanied by Parker, and demands that JJ abandons her plan to sell the painting. But before JJ can make up her mind, a sinister figure arrives, gun in hand. Bohdanko - the Russian gangster who tailed her from Japan, and beat up Eric for information in Amsterdam - has come to collect his prize.

S2 E10 - The Song Of The Metal Whale

Previously: Crammed together in the same Eurobear costume, Thomaz and Bette have been eavesdropping outside Hilda's office as she speaks to her associate Giuseppe. They hear her mention "The Committee" before Thomaz helps Bette escape via an Elves of Europe boat. He tells her that he regularly escorts mysterious visitors to Hilda's office, and then to hidden rooms in the castle. Bette swears she's going to find those rooms. Meanwhile, Gretchen, having escorted a wounded Eric to JJ's room, finds one of these secret rooms - behind a bookcase deep in the crumbling castle. JJ finds Eric convalescing in her bed after being attacked by Bohdanko - the same gangster who nearly killed her in Tokyo. She is horrified that he got as far as finding Eric in Amsterdam, but Eric assures her he didn't tell Bohdanko anything that could lead him to her. But that's not all - Eric has found a buyer for the Vermeer, and JJ reluctantly agrees to go ahead with the sale. Meanwhile, Parker hitches a lift to Dunkelschloss with a slightly unsettling lorry driver, who has noticed a huge increase in the number of Wizzzard Entertainment trucks on the road...

S2 E9 - Hidden Rooms

Previously: Convinced that he is hiding something, Margot searches Jenkins' office. A panicked Davina radios to tell her that Jenkins is heading straight for her. When Jenkins arrives, Margot tells him she has been reminiscing about the days after the Mockery Manor fire. After they share an uncomfortable slow dance, Jenkins asks Margot what she is really doing there. Meanwhile, Bette borrows JJ's spare Dunkelschloss staff uniform so she can investigate in the park unnoticed. They agree to reconvene at the Schloss later that night. JJ does not yet know that Gretchen has escorted an injured Dodgy Eric to her room. Dressed as Eurobear, Thomaz escorts Giuseppe (manager of another Wizzzard Entertainment attraction) to Hilda's office in the Elves of Europe ride. While Thomaz waits outside, he is startled by Bette, who has followed them in. Exasperated, Thomaz insists that Bette steps inside the Eurobear suit with him, so as to avoid Hilda's security cameras. Together in the suit, they listen at Hilda's door. She says that "The Committee" will be here soon, and that there will be a reckoning. In this episode: Bette continues investigating, Parker makes his way to Dunkelschloss, JJ falls back into old bad habits, and Gretchen makes a discovery...

S2 E8 - Zzzip

Previously: In a flashback, Gretchen performs with her band Frostwald in the Dunkelschloss Battle of the Bands, but bandmate Gunther seems distracted. He tells her that something big is about to happen in the park. He has, of course, since disappeared.

JJ reveals that she arrived to drop off the painting in a Tokyo apartment to find her contact dead, and Russian gangster Bodhanko waiting to kill her, only narrowly escaping herself. Broke as they are, the twins agree they have no choice but to work for Jenkins. Meanwhile, Parker realises that Matty knows nothing about Smithy, and has been toying with him. But something Matty says hits home. Why does Jenkins keep taking the law into his own hands? What kind of man would do that? Desperate to escape, Parker phones the twins and tells them he is coming to Dunkelschloss.

S2 E4 - Casual Spycraft

Previously: JJ takes the scenic route to Hilda's office by riding The Elves of Europe and jumping off the boat at the Italy show scene. Using Hilda's phone, JJ contacts Dodgy Eric (her old flame, and generally an unsavoury character), and asks for his help selling her mysterious package - a stolen Vermeer painting - which he agrees to do. She is then escorted by Tomasz to her lodgings in the semi-derelict schloss at the centre of the park, which has no toilets. Meanwhile, Bette unexpectedly arrives at Mockery Manor and tells Margot, Jenkins and Parker that she has had a baby and needs a job. Jenkins presses her into spying on Hilda and the Dunkelschloss operations. Later that evening, JJ meets Gretchen sneaking around the park. They part ways at the toilets in Baba Yaga Land, but Gretchen tells JJ to be careful... She thinks there is something going on in the park. Something dangerous. JJ laughs and says "that's statistically unlikely". In this episode: Tomasz reports to Hilda, the twins are reunited in the Black Forest, and Parker starts an investigation of his own.

S2 E3 - Whispering Trees

Previously - Flashing back to New Year's Eve 1990, a disillusioned Bette leaves her pilled-up sister partying with strangers on a Thailand beach, and finds herself spilling her emotions to Chet, an American traveller. Chet invites Bette to come with him to the Himalayas to find inner peace, which she does... without JJ. Flashing forward to the present (1992), Hilda teaches JJ to drive the People Cart in the Vegetable Patch, Dunkelschloss's dullest edu-tainment offering. JJ panics at the mention of a ride called the Trousers Meowsers Mega Coaster, and Hilda informs her that they sometimes swap attractions with Mockery Manor. She also reveals that JJ will be staying in the semi-derelict schloss (castle) during her stay. Meanwhile, at Mockery Manor, Jenkins presses Parker to contact JJ and task her with spying on Hilda, whom he suspects is running an "illegal operation" from the German park. To their surprise, Bette then arrives at Mockery Manor and asks whether Margot's offer of a full-time job still stands. Finally, back in Tokyo, shadowy figures are disposing of a body. It seems unlikely that "the girl" is their colleague's killer, but they are determined to find her and retrieve the item she was supposed to deliver - a priceless, stolen Vermeer. In this episode: a desperate Bette is given a mission, while JJ seeks help from an unsavoury contact, settles into her new lodgings, and makes an unlikely friend. Mockery Manor is written and directed by Lindsay Sharman. Music, sound design and editing by Laurence Owen. Hayley Evenett was JJ and Bette, Laurence Owen was Parker, Jenkins and additional voices, Lindsay Sharman was Hilda, Margot and Davina, Alasdair Beckett-King was Tomasz and Dodgy Eric, and Abbie Eastwood was Gretchen.

S1 E4 - Trousers Meowsers

Previously on Mockery Manor: JJ is caught in the park after hours by Manager Norton, but fools him into thinking she's Bette - her twin sister. Meanwhile Parker investigates a high-pitched scream, and finds a terrified Matty cowering in a supply cupboard, having seen "a big cat". Parker leaves him, laughing, and bumps into Emma, who has Sonia's bracelet in her possession (which everyone thinks JJ has stolen) and he takes it from her. Parker then realises Matty is right: Winnie, a cougar kept by Margot in secret, has escaped. Parker tracks Winnie to the Heart of Darkness ride, and finds her eating the body of Nick, the caretaker. Horrified, Parker calls Jenkins, whose suspicions are now confirmed. People are being murdered in the park... again. In this episode: the park is now open! A frustrated JJ is determined to get some answers... and more blood is shed. For full info and credits, visit www.longcatmedia.com/mockery-manor Enjoying the series?
