Customer Reviews

Who is that masked man in a fedora?

If you have any interest in old time radio drama or if you don't, Decoder Ring Theater is your address to adventure. This group offers a range of dramatic to comedic shows framed around two sets of characters. The Red Panda Adventures treats the listener to adventure stories of the masked title character and moxie-packing sidekick Kit Baxter a.k.a. The Flying Squrriel. These stories are in the tradition of all masked heros. Black Jack Justice is the cases of the hard-boiled detective Black Jack Justice and his partner Trixy Dixson. Both series are true to form and produced with the highest production values I have ever heard from a full cast audio-play. While most people enjoy both shows one or the other will entertain anyone you know. If you are looking for a truly addictive podcast, this is the podcast for you.

One of the Best

Decoder Ring Theatre gets so many things right. I'm kicking myself for not subscribing sooner. PRODUCTION VALUES -- DRT has a great minimalist sound to it. While many audio drama podcasts use a lot of sound effects, DRT only uses what a bit to really get the point across. It leaves more for the listener's imagination. Also, the music is great to provide the proper 1940's mis en scene. PLOTTING -- The stories are tight, with strong characterizations. The themes are good, cliched fun. I especially like the underlying story of the relationship between the Red Panda and the Flying Squirrel. They also do their fact checking, especially for the Egyptian mythology in the first episode. A big plus in my book. HUMOR -- I find myself grinning my way through each episode. The parodying of The Shadow, The Green Hornet, and Batman is a great concept. If you can love something to laugh at it, that's always a good thing. Subcribe, subscribe away!

Quite a Find

I've listened to many podcasts, and I can't say I've enjoyed any better than Decoder Ring Theater. I'm too young to have enjoyed the radio dramas of yesteryear, but that doesn't keep me from loving these shows. Both of their programs are quality material. The Red Panda is a fun mix of snappy dialogue and high-flying adventure. Black Jack Justice is a perfect example of the classic detective show, full of mystery and noir goodness. Clean as a whistle and clever to boot, these shows are great entertainment for young and old alike.
