A post-apocalyptic comedy? A lighthearted romp through a nuclear wasteland? The best show this side of Leffdon?       


Yes folks, it’s Active Radioactive Radio, brought to you by Johnny Franks, the only entertainment you have this side of the ‘Sip! 

 So how did this show come to be? Well, a group of friends decided to get together and play a fun post-apocalyptic role playing game. Our happy crew managed to have some wild adventures, and, as the hosts of said game were the executive producers of Pendant Audio, they came up with an audio component. As one does. 

 During those gaming sessions, they were regaled by none other than one Johnny Franks, who played hot, sexy tunes of the wasteland – and also gave valuable information as to the goings-on out there by the Ravagers! By the LT! By Lotus! 

Eventually we thought, “Huh, this would make a great audio drama.” And lo, the game became a show, and the show was produced by Pendant Productions, and can be found at activeradioactiveradio.com!

 **TIME PASSED** (not too much time. Just pause and reflect on your life for -- okay, time’s up.) 

Then! A fan of the show made a cool little animated opening sequence that encapsulated Johnny’s witty and disarming style in a video-type format! And we thought, “Hey, could this be a video-type show?” And lo! It could be a video-type show! In the grand tradition of Pendant Productions, the cast is located all over the country. It’s a pilot, Pendant Audio flavored. And it’s right here! The whole pilot! YES, REALLY! You can WATCH IT RIGHT NOW! 


Of course, then we thought, “We could make other episodes! And then this would be a web series! 

And that’s where all of you come in, dear people of the internet! So pull up a patch of ground, pop open a can of Kitteh Elegante (Regal Rodentia is a favorite), and choose your level of support, because it’s the post-apocalypse … and what the hell else are you gonna do? 

Our main goal is to fund production of two more episodes (this, plus the already produced pilot, gives us a total of three episodes).

$500 from the project goal will go to fulfilling Kickstarter rewards, Kickstarter fees, and some new equipment so we can get more uniform audio/video throughout the episodes.

THE REST GOES ENTIRELY TO THE CAST/CREW! The more you donate, the more episodes we can make!

The entire point of this is to pay these fine artists for their fantastic hard work so we can keep bringing you musical, comedic, post-apocalyptic joy.
 

$4000 - we produce a fourth episode!

$5000 - we produce a fifth episode!

$6000 - we produce a sixth episode!

Risks and challenges

After over thirteen years of putting together audio shows and running Pendant Productions, we’re pretty well versed on the risks and challenges of putting these things together.

The main risks as we see them:

--our untimely demise
--our cast’s untimely demise
--an actual apocalypse
