Event Horizon…and an Atomolink!

There’s some supercharged news coming soon about Cosmic Patrol! Stay tuned, faithful reader!

I’ve become a huge fan of Decoder Ring Theatre since a friend showed me the light a few weeks ago. DRT produces pulpy audio dramas like the radio shows popular in the 1940s-50s. While their two main shows – The Red Panda and Black Jack Justice – are excellent to listen to, they’re not quite Atomolink material. No rayguns? No robots? Sorry, gotta pass.

However, DRT also showcases other audio dramas beside their main features. One of those I just discovered: Deck Gibson, Far Reach Commander!

Deck Gibson is everything you could ever want in a retro-space audio show. Atomic cannons, space fighters, damsels in distress, arch rivals and vicious aliens to say the very least! The show is full of things you could use in a Cosmic Patrol game session, and I can’t recommend it enough. Check it out, you won’t be sorry!
