A Review of Blackout City Podcast

Blackout City Podcast
A Podcast by Mark Slade and Frank Larnerd
Published: averages bi-weekly

Blackout City Podcast is the newest audio venture by acclaimed authors and podcasters, Mark Slade and Frank Larnerd, who have combined their talents to create a serial of bizarre noir. Joe Smoke is the main character in this dark and alternate 1960’s world of drugs, robot police, and bizarro crime. Accompanied by guest writers who further the stories of Joe Smoke and other denizens of Blackout City, each story is deftly read by a talented voiceover cast and accompanied by a hardboiled soundtrack. These tales are fast-paced, gritty, and addictive to listen to, so prepare yourself to lose several hours as you immerse yourself in the unfolding drama of Joe Smoke’s exploits.

Start from the beginning with episode 1 - “I forgot to Remember” or check out the latest installment, episode 6 – “Love in Blackout City,” which just came out June 23.
