Ever since I can remember I've doodled, sketched, and painted. I've always loved reading science fiction, fantasy, mysteries, thrillers, and within the last few years, young adult fiction - especially if zombies are involved. I've written my own stories since I was a kid, too, and my computer's hard drive is full of half-written stories that are easily pushing 30 years old. Since I'm often distracted by shiny objects and random thoughts, I can never seem to finish writing any of them.
And finally, when we were kids my siblings, cousins, and I would write short (stupid) skits which we would act out and record with our dads' boomboxes on cassette tapes, using a collection of sound effect LPs to mimic our favorite olde timey version of podcasts - CBS Radio Mystery Theater (this was back when everything you watched, listened to, and read was analogue. I think even the video games back then were analogue, lol).
The Very Nearly Dramatized Podcast is a way for me to combine my main interests into one project. This project has been a labor of love, a source of frustration, and hopefully, a place to share in an entertaining way all of the crap I keep in the dusty corners of my mind - Dennis Taroy
