Sample: Wondery presents Blood Ties – Season Two

Caution: This sample episode is not intended to relax you or to gently put you to sleep. Instead, you will hear my normal voice, as well as, the thrilling dialogue of a suspenseful drama produced by Wondery.

Listen to this sample episode of Blood Ties – Season One when you are wide awake and be prepared for some thrilling storytelling because…

BLOOD TIES SEASON TWO IS AVAILABLE NOW!

Blood Ties is a scripted audio drama starring Gillian Jacobs, Josh Gad, Dominic Monaghan, Amy Landecker, and Wayne Knight.

After the sudden death of Michael and Elenore Richland’s billionaire father, disturbing allegations emerge about his dark past. These revelations thrust them into a fight they’re completely unprepared for. As the stakes of telling the truth continue to rise, they grapple with their father’s legacy and what to
do with it.

Bonus 51: Busy Beach – vacation rambles

My first beach whispering on a busy beach.  You will hear my whispering, ocean sounds, and beach sounds.

My whispering: I recorded this while I was on vacation last week so I am mostly whispering about my vacation travels and activities during that week.    Mundane stuff that you can try to visualize and fall asleep to.

Ocean sounds: I was far from the water so it sounds mostly likely white noise.  You won’t hear distinct waves or surf but you will hear the gentle wind around me.

Beach sounds: I recorded this with two microphones, so these sounds should be in stereo and sound 3-D (best heard with headphones).  My favorite background sounds in this recording are the children yelling and playing – made me smile when I listened to it during editing.  You will also hear adults talking on cell phones, adults talking to each other, the tok-tok-tok sounds of beach paddle ball, feet running or walking in the sand around me,   several airplanes flying overhead, and near the end someone starts playing music in the distance.

Bonus 50: Big Batch #8 – Whisperpedias (Coconut milk, Chocolate bars, Bubble gum, Miracle fruit, Salt, New Coke)

Enjoy 2 hours of Whisperpedias about food-related topics (food, drink, candy, spices)!

I took 6 prior Whisperpedias, removed their intro music and spoken introductions,  deleted any ads or commercials, normalized their volumes, and pasted them together.

So each section begins immediately with food-related information from Wikipedia to give you a 100% pure and extended Whisperpedia experience.

Start times so you can jump to a specific spot:

Start: 0h:0m:0s – Coconut milk (episode 11)
Start: 0h:21m:18s – Chocolate bars (episode 16)
Start: 0h:32m:38s – Bubble gum (episode 46)
Start: 0h:43m:45s – Miracle fruit (episode 75)
Start: 1h:7m:15s – Salt (episode 152)
Start: 1h:35m:20s – New Coke (episode 162)

Bonus 49: Graph Time – Introduction

A new and experimental episode type called, “Graph Time.”

Graph Time episodes will involve me drawing something on a piece of graph paper and describing it to you.    This episode will introduce you to the premise of themed Town Centers  which may be a future type of Graph Time episode.

*Caution*  You will hear the sound of pencil drawing near the end of the episode.  When I listened to the final recording, I didn’t find the sound very relaxing.  I may try a different method of drawing in the next Graph Time episode.

Bonus 48: Story Time – The Story Behind Little Miss Muffet by L Frank Baum

L Frank Baum returns!    Have you ever wondered the full story behind the nursery rhyme, Little Miss Muffet?

L Frank Baum has written a wonderful fictional back story to explain : Who is Little Miss Muffet? What is a tuffet? Why was she eating curds and  where do curds come from?  Why was she frightened by a spider?

It all comes to light thanks to our old buddy L Frank Baum.

Bonus 47: Big Batch #7 – Trivia Time (from episodes 110, Bonus 19, Bonus 20, 169)

Enjoy about 2 hours of 120 Trivia Time questions!

I took 4 prior Trivia Time episodes, removed their intro music and spoken introductions,  deleted any ads or commercials, normalized their volumes, and pasted them together.

So each section begins immediately with curious questions to give you a 100% pure and extended Trivia Time experience.

Start times so you can jump to a specific spot:

  • Start: 0h:0m:0s – 110 Trivia Time
  • Start: 0h:27m:05s – Bonus 19 Trivia Time
  • Start: 0h:53m:30s – Bonus 20 Trivia Time
