This is a 1950 movie trailer for Flight to Mars. It’s a grade B science fiction pulp adventure about an expedition to mars that encounters an underground civilization. I think it actually has a very nice look with lots of color, great sets and fantastic costumes.
By the way, if you like pulpy sci-fi and Mars, head over to our ongoing Princess of Mars podcast.
The Pothole is the latest offering from Well Told Tales, a blog specializing in the production of pulp fiction podcasts. They have recently transitioned from offering only their own audio productions to allowing users to upload their own audio stories, films and written stories. It’s an excellent idea.
I had a blast listening to The Pothole a few evenings ago. It’s genuinely disturbing and offers a unique perspective on its genre. I won’t tell you which genre it is because I don’t want to spoil the suspense for you. The writing by Kris Ashton hooks you immediately. His characters are vivid. The story is pulp fiction at its best. The narrator is John Wooley, actor, author, film teacher and columnist. His reading is superb, with a relaxed and gravelly voice that lets the story unwind with just the right touch of dread.
These guys are very accomplished and are making some of the best audio stories I’ve heard anywhere. Give Well Told Tales a visit.
