Originally released in November 2013, this is the absolute last original episode from the archives that we can post. And to be honest I didn't want to release this one because of the sound quality. But I've had it cleaned up a bit by Steve Blizin of the Drift and Ramble podcast (check his show out on iTunes, it's awesome), and I think it's ready to be heard (again). 

Here's our cast:

Dana Gonsalves as Larry Halder, Micah Blain as Lieutenant Rodson, Wendy Sauer as Mildred, Pete Lutz as Tony Cintrella, Geri Elliff as Clara Lorn, and Andres Elizondo II as Nick Tanner.  Additional voices were supplied by Kevin Schuster, Larry Hutchison, and Jordan Bruster-Campo....Your announcer was Lisa Ayala.

”What Bleeds is What Leads” was originally published as the short story “Red Dawn” by Don James, and appeared in the September 1946 issue of “Dime Mystery Magazine”.  It was adapted by Pete Lutz, who also directed and produced this program.

One of the many special features that appear between-the-acts of episodes of Pulp-Pourri Theatre is the Philboyd Studge Interview: our intrepid reporter travels the globe, chatting with interesting, yet wholly fictitious, people who might have an unusual occupation; or an unusual name; or own a business with an unusual name. In search of the unusual, that's our Philboyd! Here they are, in order of appearance, beginning with his first one with a crack-filler on Mount Rushmore. The final interview is a never-before-released chat with a conspiracy theorist, conducted especially for this compilation. Enjoy!

All interviews written by Pete Lutz; Philboyd Studge plays himself.

Our production has all the earmarks of a live performance: people coughing, folks walking in and out of the room, etc. Try not to let that distract you too much.
