S1.Ep03 The Parcel

Posted: January 21, 2014 in Podcast

The 2013 Christmas Season ended recently, and with it the busiest time of the year for postal workers came to a close. Each year, millions of us around the world depend on the postal service to deliver our letters and packages to loved ones everywhere. As long as you’ve got the right amount of postage on your letter or package, the postal workers will see it to it’s final destination. As you’ll hear in this episode, a family living in Idaho during the early 20th Century tested the limits of this reasoning, when they sent a very special parcel through the Post.

Many thanks to Grace Coleman for composing the original music for this episode. Be sure to check out more of her work at

By the time you listen to the end of this show, you’ll no longer wonder what you should call this podcast.
In this episode, Dan Wanschura and Phil Ensminger reveal the top six name suggestions and discuss different strategies for naming a podcast. To get some more reaction, Dan and his sister Meagan take to Mall of America to get random people’s input to the choices. They discover this is much easier said than done! Then finally, after all the consideration, Dan and Phil complete the tricky task of choosing an official name…

A big shout-out to:
J.D. and Christina for suggesting your name ideas and calling in to tell us about them!
The general public who agreed to be interviewed for this podcast. It wouldn’t have been nearly as colorful without you.

S1.Ep01 Chicago

Posted: December 5, 2013 in Podcast

Here it is…the aforementioned podcast about the Chicago road trip.

In the first of what they hope is many similar productions, Dan and Phil discuss their trip, inspiration, and purpose in producing podcast-styled audio pieces.

Building on their previous dramatic audio experiences, the duo aims to use this venue to explore different storytelling formats and techniques.

What excites them the most, however, is the listener interaction this style of production allows. They want to hear from you! Let them know what you liked AND what you didn’t! Have an interesting topic, story, or idea? Get in touch with them via Twitter, Facebook, or in the comments sections below.

As you probably already noticed, this show doesn’t have an official name yet. This is your first opportunity to get involved…we want YOU to name the show. So, go ahead…chime in and be heard!
