Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! We introduce our new co-host this episode -- and we hope you enjoy the New Dave! This installment is our fourth for 2021, and Paul gets two choices in a row for some reason, so he selected an episode of Boston Blackie entitled "Murder at the Rodeo" for us to discuss.
And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether this entry meets the following criteria:
1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")
2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?
So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our twenty-third number (but 10th official episode of S2), this episode of Boston Blackie from 1946. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it!

SAVE THE LAST WORD FOR ME #1: Chatting with Lauren Shippen & Julia Morizawa of "The Bright Sessions" (9/2016)
Again from our archives, we present the 2nd episode of a discussion podcast that I had high hopes for, but which only went for 9 episodes or so. But the discussions are fun and if you're interested in voice actors' lives, we delve pretty deep in these interviews.
Lauren Shippen is the creator of The Bright Sessions -- an audio drama that was a huge hit. Julia Morizawa played the title character, Dr. Bright, a psychiatrist who specialized in troubled teens. Their show is still available although no longer in production, I believe, and I recommend you check it out.
I'll be posting these re-runs monthly -- they originally launched on a different platform that I never use anymore, so you probably never heard of this show. Still, I hope you'll listen and enjoy.
