SPECIAL FREE EPISODE
"Who would allow you to induce a mesmeric trance just as they’re dying?"
Dark Adventure Radio Theatre: The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar brings to life Edgar Allan Poe's tale of ghastly science in a 1930s-style radio drama. Dark Adventure Radio Theatre presents the tale with a cast of professional actors, exciting sound effects and thrilling original music by Reber Clark.

Edgar Allan Poe - America’s greatest author of tales of mystery and the imagination, presents a disturbing tale in which the boundaries of science and medicine journey to an unthinkable extreme. Can a bold doctor’s experiments in mesmerism stave off the very forces of death - or will the mortal reckoning come due in an especially ghastly manner?
Unlike our other Dark Adventure Radio Theatre shows, this one is produced in the traditional broadcast length of genuine vintage radio shows - about 30 minutes. And unlike our other shows - this one is absolutely FREE. We hope you enjoy it!
Question: Is this show the same thing as the Valdemar part of the Bad Medicine episode?
Answer: Yes and no. We took this version of the show and rewrote and rerecorded sections to make it a better fit for Bad Medicine. The two versions are quite similar, but are not the same.
Note: some phones and tablets (we're talking to you here, Apple) make it difficult to download audio from 3rd party sites like us. We recommend (a) downloading our files to a computer and then using iTunes to sync our shows back to your portable device or (b) using the app Zip Viewer, which will let you play the audio and see the liner notes.
