Next week, two of my worlds collide when The Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast crosses over with MPR’s WITS radio show.

WITS is a delightful program hosted by the most splendid John Moe. You can catch it on the honest-to-God radio, or you can catch up with it via podcast here.

Beyond Belief is a segment of the live, staged fake-radio show The Thrilling Adventure Hour. Each segment of TAH is podcast individually. The Beyond Belief segment— starring myself and Paget Brewster as Frank and Sadie Doyle— concerns a pair of boozy paranormal investigators who are married to each other and to booze. It’s The Thin Man with ghosts. And more booze.


Frank & Sadie Doyle, along with musical guests Rhett Miller and "Weird Al" Yankovic, will be visiting WITS on Friday, October 24th.

If you want to catch up on the adventures of Frank & Sadie Doyle. here are all of their adventures for your listening pleasure. They’re all about 20 minutes or so, with the occasional super-sized special episode along the way. I personally recommend all of them.
