Saturday Night Radio Drama - Paul Bae - The Big Loop
The Big Loop is an anthology of recent audio dramas written by Paul Bae. I just came across it yesterday and I've listened to a couple of them, more short stories in the form of monodramas with audio effects. And they have the transcripts. I don't usually recommend a series of unrelated pieces on the basis of two but those two are pretty good and disturbing. The Promise and Goodbye Mr. Adams, they are intense and transgress a lot of conventions. Mr. Adams, especially is bound to be seen as transgressive, a sort of gay anti-superhero who I think any gay kid who has been beaten up or terrorized will like. I'll be listening to the rest of them and am sure there will be a lot in them that makes me feel uneasy. I think good fiction should make you feel uneasy, make you question why what you like about it makes you like it and if that's right.
