"Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Den of Sin! I am your lovely host, TS Denizen, the denizen of the Den of Sin. Afford me the time to provide you with a brief summation of my story. I am not of the planet you call Earth. I hail from the planet Sinestra. On the planet Sinestra, I, along with many of the other Sinestrians, were not permitted to express our true selves. Our Elders believed there was a correct Way to Be that all Sinestrians were duty bound to adhere to, whether this Way to Be was the Way we Were, or not. The oppression of my soul was too great to bear! So I stole a space pod of my World and flew it to the nearest inhabited World which my Elders deemed Sinful: Earth. Here, I fell in deep love with Earth culture, and Earth music in particular. Each song was an undiscovered reflection of my own soul! And so I established this Den of Sin to share with you myself, others, and most importantly, yourselves." The Den of Sin is a program that mixes elements traditional music radio with scripted radio drama. We play rock music from the indie-ground within the context of a sci-fi black comedy. Throw John Peel and Ed Wood in a blender together and the resulting blood smoothie hopefully tastes something like this show. Episodes fall under different categories. "Experiments" are the "main" series. These episodes are scripted and add to the Den of Sin multi-verse in tangible, story-related ways. "Studies" are interview episodes. A guest comes on and one of the characters asks them questions about who they are and what they do, and the guest selects the playlist. The last category is "observations". These are rare, special video episodes where the characters will riff on a movie or short film. Guests may also be featured on these episodes. Regardless of your poison (or if you like to roll the dice and mix like me), I hope you find something in the Den that is to your liking.

Good music better dialogue
Good music, better dialogue. Love the character, tunes are great of course. Reminds me of Dr. Demento from when I was a wee lad.
Some Weird Fan.
The host is a good friend of mine and a former co-host when he worked on the radio. Even then he was weird...but in the awesome way. This podcast definitely reflects his own unique brand of weirdness and I highly suggest it to anyone who's a fan of say.."Welcome to the Nightvale," or any sort of theatrical podcast.
Favorite podcast on iTunes
Best podcast on iTunes I've heard. Really interesting concept where it's a like a really disturbed old radio drama where the song selection almost acts as a soundtrack to the light, but violent and humerous sci-fi plot. TS is a freak. Highly recommended.
