In this episode’s cast spotlight we feature Daniel Taylor who plays Professor William McKinley Martin, the instigator of the expedition to the Malatezi Escarpment!
Daniel began with ARTC in 1988 as Foley artist, creating and performing live sound effects for stage and tape productions, beginning with Dragon*Con 2 (The Dunwich Horror, in which he likes to say he played the title role). His name appears in the sound effects credits of most of ARTC’s early releases.
This whetted his appetite to write. In addition to creating and writing the popular series Bumpers Crossroads, he currently concentrates on adaptations, such as Robert A Heinlein’s Solution Unsatisfactory, Henry Lee Forrest’s Special Order and Robert Louis Stevenson’s Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde. He has also worked with Thomas E. Fuller to create audio versions of Mr. Fuller’s stage plays Throne of Shadows and An Atlanta Christmas.”
He continues to be dazzled by the calibre of people with whom he associates through ARTC.
Welcome to the first episode of Nairobi Jack and the Lost Gold of the Atlantimengani! For this series, we’re going to feature a member of the cast in each episode. Today’s featured performer, Eric Lang, who portrays Nairobi’s trusty partner in adventure (sidekick just doesn’t do him justice), Dusty Jim Slayback!
Through the magic of radio, Eric debuted with ARTC by playing a nimble-fingered mechanic (Dusty Jim Slayback in Nairobi Jack Rackham and the Lost Gold of the Atlantimengani) despite the fact that in reality he has trouble replacing the batteries in his t.v. remote. A former English teacher, Eric is now a professional film and theater actor. Favorite performances around town include Francis in Forever Plaid (Marietta Theatre Company), Felix Ungar in The Odd Couple (Magari Theatre Company) and Lysander in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Shakespeare Tavern). Eric is represented by Kathleen Schultz Associates, and his website is ericdlang.wix.com/elang.
Look for more performer features as the series goes on! And remember, the Centauri Express will come to you twice each month now on the second and fourth Thursday…barring disaster.
Last month we talked about the upcoming Treasure Island release. We just recorded the credits and all that’s left is one last quality review and this will be ready for your eager ears!
We’re also pleased to let everyone know that our next podcast serial after the conclusion of Dash Cardigan will be Thomas E. Fuller’s Nairobi Jack Rackham and the Lost Gold of the Atlantimengani! These voice tracks are in the can and editing will be starting very soon.
But perhaps most exciting is the next thing we’re in pre-production on – the entire series of Rory Rammer, Space Marshal! That’s right – every episode of this fan-favorite is going into the booth. Rory, Skip, Rex Gorbechev, DARIL T-8, Kryssa Feynman, Professor Irwin Feynman, and a whole gaggle of supporting characters will be taking you from the skies of Earth to the orbit of the moon very soon!

St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland (but not on a plane…unless you mean a 2-dimensional surface…nevermind). But did he miss one? Just what is the Loch Ness Monster? Assuming it even exists.
Last week we brought you part one of The Dweller in the Depths, by Thomas E. Fuller, recorded live at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA. This week we bring you part two of the story, but this performance was recorded at Stone Mountain Park in 2005.

Ah, St. Patrick’s Day. Leprechauns, shamrocks, pots o’ gold, and green things everywhere. Well, everywhere except here. We’ve just got lots of blarney because this week our podcast features a story set in that fabled land of…Scotland.
This week: Part one of The Dweller in the Depths, by Thomas E. Fuller. This episode was recorded live at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur, GA back in 1997. Next week we’ll bring you part two of the story, but the performers will be a lot different because it will have been recorded at Stone Mountain Park in 2005. We hope you’ll hear how far we’ve come in those 8 years.
