my favourite audio!

dealing with paranoia, sex, terrorism and drugs from the point of view of an agoraphobic guy living in a hotel room in dangerous times, wiretap is one of the funniest, most bizarre things i've ever heard. hardly surprising they only made 3 episodes, really. >sigh<

oh, and another thing - don't be put off by the lame intro some fool tacked onto the start of episode 1. what were they thinking?

Groundbreaking Internet Theatre

If you could sum up Wiretap, Episode 1 in three words, what would they be?

Disclosure: Mark Leyner and I created the story in 2001. We recorded it on the phone line, just as a real wiretap would be. We'd write out the rough plot line, talk the actors through it briefly, including what was then happening in the real world, then the actors improvised all the dialogue. We wanted these fictional characters to react to not only the fictional storyline but to include commentary on what was actually happening in the world at that time. Alas, we could only do 3 episodes, on less than a shoe-string, before the Internet winter set in and I had to get back to spending 100% of my time on doing content and biz dev deals for Audible...where I toiled from 1997 to 2012. -BMF
