It’s been three years coming, but yesterday production officially began on the first episode of my web-radio series Special Relativity. (Which, as you remember, is the story of the most evil woman on Earth, who attempts to foil her own plan to destroy the Universe by traveling back in time to kidnap her younger self.)
Recording kicked off for this suddenly and unexpectedly bicoastal project on a snowy Sunday afternoon on the upper east side of Manhattan, while I listened in my apartment in Los Angeles in my pajamas. I present to you now a brief and beautiful product of that session, this alluring and seductive first sound from Special Relativity:
That, of course, is the terrifying battle cry of the Chief of the Royal Guard of the Prince of the Pigeon People.
I can tell you the name of the actor who’s making it later this week, when I announce the truly exceptional cast of the podcast. Stay tuned!
