Science Fiction Double Feature

Callam and Jim are two of your regular store-brand nerds, spending more time in imaginary worlds than reality. But a mysterious figure from beyond time and space has a mission for them, and it’ll take them to places more exciting and slightly weirder than their wildest dreams. Join them on their quest through time, space, and fiction for comedy, action, romance, bromance, bad puns, and a whole lot of IMDB trivia.

We owe thanks to https://freesound.org/ for providing a huge library of freely available sound effects to help nerds like us realise our audio-ambitions - a full list of FX credits can be found here: https://rb.gy/zqnwor

START HERE - Episodes 1 + 2 Abridged (aka SFDF Redux)

June 4th, 2021

The cut the directors really wanted you to hear... except unlike Francis Ford Coppola, it's shorter and more enjoyable than the original. Series 1 of the fantastical and heavily improvised adventures of Callam and Jim was a learning experience, and only by around episode 3 had our two protagonists gained full control of their comedy vehicle. As such, this re-edit of the original two episodes removes the content we think is less integral to our adventures (a lot of it is just film banter...), helping you to get up to speed more quickly.

After listening to this, head to episode 3 to continue the adventure. P.S. we didn't ditch the originals, so if you happen to enjoy somewhat directionless film chat, make your way down to the full length episodes 1 and 2!

Episode 7: Inglorious McBazterds

May 7th, 2021

*Willem Dafoe from The Lighthouse voice* Avast and gird yer ear-loins! Harken to me my friends and listen ye well as we reach the final chapter of our epic yet narratively-unstable tale in a decidedly nautical fashion. Having seen off the diabolical clutches of the Ronald Raygun and reset reality (mostly), the boys find themselves headed straight to a watery showdown with the nefarious pop-culture-thieving slug Scabbs McBaster. Will they survive this most dangerous encounter or will they become shark-bait or worse? Only Poseidon can tell. And ye, if ye have the grit enough to listen to 47 minutes of an improvised comedy podcast.

October 29th, 2020
