*While it may sound like we are encouraging you to slip slowly into madness, this is not something we can actually endorse. Slipping into madness will cause you to lose touch with reality. Losing touch with reality will cause you to think you are something you are not. When you think you are something you are not, you will become convinced you have discovered the key to developing sustainable cold fusion technology. When you become convinced you have discovered the key to developing sustainable cold fusion technology, you will stop reading Kingdom Pen and listening to the podcasts. Ceasing to read Kingdom Pen and listen to the podcasts will force the KP staff to get jobs at McDonald’s. Don’t force the KP staff to get jobs at McDonald’s. Don’t slip slowly into madness.

Kingdom Pen Radio #1 – The Ultimate Canadian Love Story

KPR_EP1_post

 

Yo guys.  Welcome to Kingdom Pen Radio.

 

In the inaugural episode of Kingdom Pen Radio, Daniel and Ezra map out an ancient Canadian love story, bash Hunger Games, give away a t-shirt, recite a culturally inaccurate Canadian poem, and generally make a mess of whatever professional reputation this show was intended to have.  But hey, this is what writers at work look like.  Abandon expectations, all who enter here . . .

 

Kingdom Pen Radio will release new episodes every Monday from now until they strap Daniel onto a platform and lock him away in a padded room some 20,000 leagues under the sea.  Once that happens, episodes will premier on Tuesdays.
