Please excuse a short delay in broadcast . . certain pressing issues have delayed production.
These issues are soft . . and spongey, with opulent leather accessories and a bushel of hand-made spoons at the ready. Fast with their feet, they lay claim to the finest pudding mines this side of Namibia!
I digress . . . these issues, hereafter referred to as "life", have delayed production temporarily.
However, in the Good News dept., as we pause before Webisode 10, we're pleased to note that the total number of downloads for the Inverse Delirium is approaching 1,000, which seemed a fool's dream back in May!
Thanks to you!
Now our crack team of writers have produced a script ("Brain Man!!") that some in the media have called "dislytavating", and have already begun double-blind studies to determine the toxicity of the material. We'll be back soon!

The Host (GW)—an aging radio veteran who is happy to be working, and who believes he is thoughtful, clever, and witty. Well-intentioned, but afraid he really is just another pretty voice. Opens every show by saying “Welcome” in a different language—he thinks this makes the show multi-cultural. (voice based on my own, channeling Bob Edwards)
Charles Paintakingsley—an interpid reporter who doesn’t always understand what he’s reporting on, but is very earnest. Son of an English diplomat whose parents ditched him while visiting the Baltimore Zoo, where he now runs a Snowball stand. Would like to get into a real radio job. Also, has never met the Host.
Kent Occluded—the gruff-voiced manager of the cavernous Poison Dart Studios, where InveDel is produced. Down-to-earth. Kent has seem’em come and is looking forward to seeing’em go. He enjoys sailing and cutting coupons. (voice based on a manager I work with)
Shashir Moheet—the systems analyst who co-hosts the Catch Phrase of the Week segment. He is a soft-spoken Sikh from Northern India, and is very smart. Also a devoted father of 18. (named after two guys I work with, Shishir & Mohit, voice inspired by comedian Russell Peters)
Connie—the sound engineer for the podcast. Keeps to herself. Kent knows her last name, but he isn’t telling.
Anthony Lame—sometime commentator who supplies film reviews. From England, we think. Funny voice and haughty, snippy manner. Master of snark. (voice based on Brits who can't pronounce 'r's, like Michael Palin's fantastic Pontius Pilate in the Life of Brian)
Carvington St. Swithins—head of facilities. Carvington hails from May Pen, Jamaica, and is wild about cricket . . . or rather, crickets--he keeps a terrarium full of them to feed to the fringe-toed basilisk that wanders his apartment. Favorite food: akee & saltfish.
Gojeera—irascible citizen of Japan who happens to be a forty-foot reptilian monster. (no relation to any other large dinosaur-type creatures from Japan.) Feels misunderstood.
Jingo Sparks—a 20something writer adrift in New York City, writing occasional pieces for magazines, who secretly longs to inherit the Host's chair at This American Life (I attempt a New England accent)
James Robert Tow—an elderly historian and expert on Civil War Reenactments. (I attempt an elderly Southern accent)
