Otherwhere • Episode 8 in the RADIO HOUR Series

by Matthew Ivan Bennett

Staged Radio Drama, Radio Broadcast, Fully-Staged Production, or Virtual Theatre.

The Host of RADIO HOUR talks about the disputed practice of channeling. Over the years there have been writers who attributed the books they had written not to themselves, but to disembodied spirits. It’s a practice that’s mostly been debunked, but there are those who swear by it. Our Host is joined by a man who has created quite a following and a stir with a book he says he has channeled. That stir enters the studio/theatre with a shift in reality. The day before Halloween seems a fitting time to talk to Dr. Arlen Childs about Otherwhere, but then reality shifts can happen anytime, anywhere.

RADIO HOUR is a co-production between Salt Lake City’s Plan-B Theatre Company and the University of Utah’s Public Radio station KUER’s Radio West.
