Episode 63 – The Creature

In this episode, we are introduced to the official mascot of Immoral Juice – Downy The Clown.

Downy makes some calls while DTB has an encounter in the parking lot with THE CREATURE.

This is a fun, action-packed episode with lots of different types of calls throughout as well as soundscape/audio collages designed to introduce Downy into the storyline.

We also did some weird faxes with duck parts on them, resulting in some very odd calls.

Episode 62 – Aquatic Crime Solvers

We are Immoral Juice. This episode continues our adventures in Immoral things to sell to customers. We call about the flyer our company sent out to stores to show off the new merchandise. We call up unsuspecting hotels in Japan to try and solve Aquatic Crimes, as well as other odd calls to various places throughout the world.

This is a heavily community-involved episode, with many members doing calls and helping Akspa out with the calls throughout the entire show.

2021: Show Status

I took a break on editing the show for about 2 months. I’ve got something like 5-7 episodes to edit and post,

2021: Show Status 1
here’s the current status of Episode 62’s edit

Episode 61 marked the end of edits from last year. Episode 62 and 63 have been partially edited, and everything else since then has been lying in wait for an edit.

The reason for this slump in editing is mainly due to the length of the shows themselves. There were quite a few shows that extended well over the 4 hour mark, and into the 6 hour territory. Then there’s shows where the recording bot failed to record bits and pieces of calls, where I have to go and grab the raw, crappy audio recorded on my phone system, and sp/lic/e calls back together.

There’s technical issues too – a failing SSD in my system has caused me nothing but trouble when loading up large projects in Adobe Audition, so I’ve been waiting on parts and some time to set aside and do a proper reinstall of Windows and all the software I use – this will take at least a full 18hr day to perform the necessary hardware installation/swapping, and software installation – likely to be completed by the 8th of January.

And then there’s time. I’m trying to better myself every week with dieting and sleeping a healthy sleep schedule. This is my side hustle, but it is still an important part of my life – and I’m trying to integrate healthier living alongside everything, so there may be a little less time for the hobby and more time for living. As 2021 progresses, this should balance out.

2021 should prove to be a good year for the show. We’ve got a bunch of ideas to try out, be it premises or skits. The unfinished set of skits I produced for Christmas, shall have an ending at some point – the original ending now passed in time, that it no longer makes any sense to go that route — now allows for an extended set of skits to be produced and interspersed with the episode releases.

Episodes 62 & 63 will be released soon-ish. Episode 64 was Pranksgiving, and has already been out for a while now. Christmas will be a non-episodic release, as I wasn’t even planning on doing a show on Christmas, and it was a short show – I may just release this unedited – I haven’t decided yet. And then this past week was Episode…. 68? I think… I don’t know, the episode numbers go past so fast these days.

Episode 69, scheduled for recording on 8th January, should return to the normal editing schedule. At this rate, it will come out sometime in February – basically, I’m 2 months behind on editing, but hope to close that gap within the next 2 months and return to a normal 1-2 week delay between recording and releasing the show.

I have high hopes for the show this year. We will try to embark on some new travels, new premises, new extensions to the show – skits are what this show was built on in the early days, and I hope to continue adding to the Miriam backstory throughout the year with silly little skits. Some folks like that side of the show, as it brings a little of the old Radio Drama from the 1940’s back. It’s old school but works well to tell stories that I’d rather not have animated or done up by actors on stage. It’s a way to convey disgusting things without the visual element – use your imagination to fill in the visual gaps.

Spotify Trailer

I needed to add a short Spotify trailer to our Spotify page, so I came up with a few short clips from old and new shows, and stuck them into a sample sandwich.

RIP DaDead

DaDead has passed.

I’m linking and embedding a call he did on an early Community Calls show, as well as the full length show we did together in October of last year.

I’m also taking out excerpts from Episodes 42, 43, and 44 where DaDead did some calls with the Community Calls crew, and providing them here as a memorial to DaDead. May he rest eternally in peace.

Episode 61 – Immoral Juice

In this episode, we created a fake juice company that was using guerilla shipping tactics to get their juice shipments in store. One small problem, the details were sent via fax machine, and not via email. We’re old school and Immoral. We don’t play by everyone’s rules, maaaaan.

Since the recording of this episode, ImmoralJuice.com forwards to a website of the Swedish King wearing funny hats, instead of the original Immoral redirect that it went to during the recording of this show.

Episode 61 - Immoral Juice 2
Become a patron to get a copy of the fax. Just $1 gives you entry to a high quality AAC podcast feed, as well as lots of extra content.

We tried to get folks to read the entire fax, but only got small fragments of what exactly was faxed on over.

Features Calls by: Dwight, MustardMachine, Turbo, ThankfulDTB, Akspa, SPLink and other members of the Travels With Miriam (Currently called Travels with Immoral Juice) discord (https://travelswithmiriam.com/chat).

Thanks to all our sponsors for supporting the show!
