About

   We’re all familiar with the flashing lights, commercials, and painted faces on our TVs. Want more original entertainment? To start, you’ve got to turn off the TV. Imagine that. In fact, imagine even more, every Friday night at 9:00 (Pacific Time) with “Smoke and Mirrors.” 

   Meet the new age of storytelling! This weekly podcast has the nostalgia of Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents, but this nostalgia can take you further than reruns. Our podcasts are more than dusty reprints read in a monotone. This is original work, accompanied by introductory music, and read by a voice actor. This project serves a dual purpose. It entertains you, the lover of all things science fiction or macabre, and it allows you to support fresh artists (musicians, writers, voice actors) by giving them a place to build out their portfolios and reels. Already, several of our contributors have begun to climb the professional ladders of Pandora and Audible, and with eBooks. 

   With a bit of your help, this stage of entertainment and showcase of talent can continue. Without it, the stage collapses. Why is the stage sagging? It could be the weight of talent, but the reality is the technology we use. We may have found a way to renovate the ancient art of storytelling, but ancient technology can only be renovated so much before it becomes...something that might stalk you home from the local cemetery. Help yourself to fresh entertainment, help some artists, and help us continue to bring this opportunity to your ears with a new MAC Pro. See you at (www.smoke-and-mirrors.us)!
