"Fur, fins, scales, wings, legs: they all popped from the surface of the inert matter, as if testing the environment to see what adaptation would be most advantageous. Finding their niche in the constantly changing, radioactive world. I can’t be certain, but I’m not sure anything ever truly dies here."

The candle sputtered as bits of badly-rendered fat crackled in the burning tallow. Exhausted from the day’s work, he sat back on his cot, watching the smoke rise like rain in reverse, to pool on the ceiling. Then something interesting began to happen.

As a child, I’d loved this forest; maybe because it was where I went to get away from the cottage, and the dark, brooding pressure of my Grandfather’s presence. But something had changed. The woods no longer seemed like a place of reprieve. I felt that I was being… not watched, per se, but noticed, and that it wasn’t a friendly kind of noticing.

"Year... II? Yes, it must still be. Brother! The pocket watch tells me it is now Prairial, which is strange, one because it is broken, and two, because it is only supposed to tell minutes and hours, not months. Nevertheless, greetings from Chateau Malheur-Infini!" The Wrong Station contains explicit content and mature themes. Discretion is advised.

“I have done what you forced me to do,” he said. “I have initiated The Final Snow.” Even dampened by the snow, she could hear the outraged cry of despair that lifted from a million throats; across the city. He had passed a sentence of death upon them, and in so doing, upon all of humankind. There were no worlds left, and no ships left to go to them.

“Here’s the place,” she said, and then loitered by the door, impatient for us to get out. The apartment was a little grimy: she hadn’t cleaned up after the previous tenants, but it was nothing objectionable. I only had one question. “What’s that door in the hallway?” Performed by Breanna Maloney. The Wrong Station contains explicit content and mature themes. Discretion is advised.

“I guess I always wanted to be a farmer.” I expected laughter, but instead the silence plunged deeper. “No,” said the farmer. “You don’t. The vermin, the too-small harvest, the too-big loneliness, up before dawn, asleep after dark. The forces of nature and God bending you to their will. Breaking you. And of course, this part of the country is prone to The Early Frost.” The Wrong Station contains explicit content. Discretion is advised. Episode-specific warnings can be found at www.wrongs

“Sorry, Hannah,” he said. “I forgot you liked horses so much, and didn’t want to hear about them getting lit on fire until their bones showed through. Just be careful, you know? And watch out down by the tracks, too. You know, after what happened to that chick over in Chase. After the accident.” The Wrong Station contains explicit content and mature themes.

They arrived at the crime scene, a gorgeous space: plasterwork ceilings illuminated by broad sash windows. A floor of unsurpassed versailles parquetry was disfigured only by the pool of dried blood. “I do wish the police would allow us to clean that up,” said the Duke. “It is distasteful, ouais,” said Belanger. “But distasteful things are useful in this line of work.” The Wrong Station contains explicit content and mature themes.

A pair of guards bowed low on the other side, and though their weapons were sheathed, he felt a spike of alarm, and nearly struck them with his sword, for both men were deformed, and hideous in his sight. But though their appearance repulsed him, they spoke elegant Spanish, and welcomed him most courteously. The Wrong Station contains explicit content and mature themes. Discretion is advised.

The Badalisc is an Epiphany-time tradition, a creature that visits towns and gives a comedic speech where it talks about the town gossip and reveals people’s secrets. There’s singing, dancing, eating, and at the end of it the creature wanders back into the woods. At least, that’s what I was told it would be like.

“That… play,” I said. “What did it represent?” He frowned at me and tilted his head. I repeated the question, but it seemed he’d understood my words, but not their meaning. “Represent?” he said. “Nay. It represent nowt.

At four in the morning, I awoke writhing in pain. It was a hunger like nothing I’d felt up to that point. Like a force of nature. A vacuum needing to be filled. I tried in vain to sleep, to turn my thoughts away from eating and onto anything else, the blue rose, my future plans, my investment portfolio, literally anything. But it was no use. Performed by Melissa Taylor.

“Your son must be initiated,” said the shaman, Shiao-Duun. “For his sake and yours. You are all too young to remember the hard times, the cold times. But Shiao-Duun is not too young. And I tell you, such times will come again. The tribe will need its sons. The initiation must come.”

“We just sail through.” And so we did. No flash, no psychedelic effects, it was like walking through a door. On one side, we left behind the world’s largest ocean; on the other, we entered a body of water nearly twice the size. Performed by Jacquie Martin

Fallen leaves swirl beneath the feet of devils, witches, and demons. Flame is put to ten hundred thousand wicks, making faces glow through the dark October night. You crush a sweet thing between your teeth as you wait. You do not know for what but you know it will be unusual. It must be time for more snips, and it must be time for Halloween. Featuring Anthony Botelho, Joey Graff, Rachel Hart, Alexander Saxton, and Chelsea Jayne Bray.

Shavash Day came on a cold October morning, the year that I lived there. Stumbling to the window, I saw people already lining the grey streets, dressed in drab traditional attire, or the Red and Grey of the Caraghian flag. Something that struck me, even from the window, was that nobody looked happy. They all just stood, waiting without anticipation, listening to the music without clapping their hands.

“But that’s not fair,” she whispered. Her grandmother grinned at her, mouth very wide, long yellow-grey teeth clicking as they met. “Get used to it,” she said. “It’s an unfair world. You’re going to have to learn that if you want to run the Company someday."

It was an hour past sunset, which in this land is earlier than you might think it, when there was a knock on our door. Not abnormal at that hour, but not common. In this land work is best done under what meagre sunlight there is, and the night is best left to its creatures.

That’s not to say I ever stopped fearing fish, but by the time I stepped through the doors of the aquarium that fear had been buried under 16 straight years of education and exposure. I thought I had it beat. But you’re not here for the story of my life. You’re here for the story of the Darkfish.

“And what do you ask in return?” She said. The Druj shook her head at the question, as though saddened by a small, suspicious mind. “My child,” she said. “Who made you so mistrustful? I ask almost nothing in return. A small inconvenience, and quickly mended.” Performed by Ashlie White

So staring at this painting every day, well, you can imagine the kinds of tricks my mind started playing on me. Or at least, that I thought it was playing on me. Subtle things at first. I’d let the colours blend, imagine the trees blowing in the wind and the water moving with the tide. It was only four months ago that the... strangeness began.

But the Hunter was not fazed; if anything, their tawny eyes seemed to catch light. They passed back and forth in front of the dead animal, examining it from many angles, clicking their tongue. “Do you know,” said the Hunter, turning to their followers. “I think the animal did this on purpose. To frighten us. I think this ‘Tiger’ may be the one we’ve been looking for.”

It was the sort of place with the same number of people in it at 11am and 2am, and often the exact same ones. You could stick your head in the door at noon, and it would already be night inside. The people who drank there had been banished from the day.

The solitude, on the other hand, was, what’s the word? Palpable. I wasn’t at all prepared for it. They tried to tell us, but it’s something you can’t really understand until you go through it. Knowing you’re 3 trillion klicks away from the closest human. Well, the closest human who isn’t asleep. Written by Mary Gillis, and performed by Jordi O'Dael and Alexander Saxton.

I remember even now, holding tight to my brother Thorsten’s arm as our grandmother described the Draugr’s corpse-blue flesh, his long fingernails, and how he crept away at night to gorge on the blood of children in their cradles. But as I say, such tales are no longer encouraged. The Christians say we have eternal life, and dislike the suggestion there is something unnatural about wanting to live forever.

The meat hissed as it slapped onto the grill, and the Pit Master pressed down with his chrome spatula, not hard enough to release the juices, but enough to sear the geometry of the cooking grate into the beef.

“It was big.” “How big?” “Big.” I saw it a few nights after that. I was sitting in the kitchen, and I heard what I thought was the cat, coming down the hall. It wasn’t the cat. But it wasn’t much smaller, either.
April 15, 2019
Tradition has it they come out of the mountains once a year at Golowan Night, in midsummer, to visit the Town. They walk the streets; see what’s changed, and then they take one thing back with them. Performed by Jonathan Shaboo.

It stood near the back wall, gleaming darkly in the red light. From a central column, it branched upward; a disturbingly fleshy plant corralled into a rigid, diamond lattice. It had no leaves, which I thought strange; so few plants are ever out of season in a greenhouse. Performed by Annelise Hawrylak.

Antlers are the fastest growing bone in the animal kingdom. In June and July, the antlers of a White-tailed deer can grow as fast as an inch a day. An inch. In order to grow so quickly, the bones need blood; lots of it, and so they’re covered in a thin, soft tissue filled with blood vessels. Velvet.

I am currently standing in the biomedical laboratories of the *REDACTED*—or simply the Institute, as I shall here on refer to it as—and am just outside of the main lab. In front of me is the holotype, species yet unnamed, currently thawing after being put on ice to best preserve its tissue.

Don’t worry though. I know I look a little intimidating to everyday people, but I promise there’s a reason for the way I look. I’m not gonna talk your ear off, either. I know most people hate having people next to them on the bus, but I’m usually able to change their minds. But enough about me. Where are you going? Performed by Joey Graff.

The rest of her pregnancy was without complication. The town marvelled; many had been sure she would die. But she had picked up a strange habit. It was remarked on in town how she would leave her home in the evenings, and walk along water’s edge in the marsh, even until long after dark. Performed by Tara Wink.

See, what you oughta do is get yourself an older vehicle. Take the Chimera for example. That engine has been running smooth and clean for over 60 years. With a few replacement parts, of course. They just don’t make cars like this anymore. Say, could you hand me that flathead over there? The missing leg makes walking to the tool bench a real pain.

Open your eyes. Don’t fall asleep, you mustn’t fall asleep. You have to stay awake, or the crows will eat you. Some think that they go for the eyes first, but it’s always the tongue. They take your tongue so you cannot cry for help, then leave you to bleed. The eyes they save for last. Performed by Thomas Gough.
December 25, 2018
You've been so good this year that we decided to leave you an extra little something in your stocking. Just make sure to give it a few good whacks before reaching in, to make absolute sure that it's dead. Performed by Anthony Botelho and Tara Wink.
December 24, 2018
Later, I found out it was the coldest that day had been in a hundred years. I’m convinced I nearly died on the road that afternoon. And there’d be times that night when I wasn’t sure I hadn’t, and that the cabin I’d arrived at wasn’t hell.

The letters swam, spilling into different words, which I read as they appeared. “The crowning achievement of the Greatest and Best was Universal Discovery. Our voyagers found the outermost edge of the universe. Do you understand? The absolute end of everything. We found the answers we were looking for, and the answers you are looking for. We built this monument afterwards. Come and see.” Performed by Amaka Umeh, and featuring Chris Vergara and Anthony Botelho.
November 26, 2018
I never thought a hospital could be so pleasant. It began to feel like a home and besides the healing, visits from friends, and watching some of the trashiest daytime TV you can imagine, it was a pretty uneventful winter for me. Except for that one night of course. Performed by Hugh Ritchie.
November 12, 2018
Not long after Thomas’ return, I started noticing strange things in and around the house. Noises at first, at night. Something like the sound of distant thunder. Boom… boom… boom… off in the distance, in the middle of the night. Oddly, at around the same time Thomas would leave bed. Performed by Rachel Hart.
October 29, 2018
The chill wind blows and carries the smell of pumpkin rot. Creatures and bones and things peer from every home. The doorbell rings in the dead of night on a dark street. Do you dare answer? It must be time for more snips, and it must be time for Halloween. Featuring, in order of appearance, Anthony Botelho, Rachel Hart, Jacob Duarte Spiel, Alexander Saxton, Hugh Ritchie, Liz Der, Chris Vergara, Margaret Rose, and Jada Rifkin.
October 22, 2018
Now, that all sounds a bit dispassionate and business-minded when I listen to myself. This isn’t supposed to be a sales pitch. No… please don’t mistake me as being blase, this work really is my passion. As are the pigs.
October 15, 2018
The sun was right overhead. It was so hot I thought the plastic wheels of my travel bag would melt to the pavement. As I turned from the parking lot down the side of the highway, the fresh dose of codeine washed over me, like white surf on a sunlit beach. The pills made everything even brighter and hazier. I felt like I was floating on the thick humid air, floating down the road like a raft down a warm stream. Performed by Liz Der.
October 8, 2018
"It’s dangerous to face them alone. You must have others with you, others you trust, even if it puts them in danger." That's what Laudens told me when I first became the Catcher. It was the soundest of advice. And yet, sometimes we do not have the luxury of following sound advice. Featuring Thomas Gough.

Sit tight folks, We're Taking Calls. Followed by announcements for Season 3. Featuring Alexander Saxton, Jada Rifkin, and Anthony Botelho.
January 29, 2018
She would stand in purple darkness, back pressed against one of the marble pillars supporting the window’s arch, and strain her ears to catch scraps of conversation as they drifted up through the purple leaves and white flowers of the citrus trees. In Constantinople, somebody was always listening. Stay tuned for updates on Season 3.
January 22, 2018
And then, some strange, lingering sense of wrongness resolved itself into a realization. The people at this party were strange. They were all slightly too long and slender in the limbs and body. They all moved the same way, with the same liquid nonchalance. Featuring Alexander Saxton, Mirka Loiselle, and Louis-Alexandre Boulet.
January 15, 2018
But on one night – it was late in the fall, I think – a foreign sound leaked into my father’s left ear, the one with the hearing aid. He took out the device and shook it, a habit that seemed to help, like the way you might hit an old radio to get it back to its senses. But when he put it back in, the sound didn’t disappear; if anything, it became a little clearer.
January 8, 2018
She looked down at her drink, and tilted it to watch the fluid stick to the sides of the glass. She wrinkled her nose. He’d said it was “Bessenjenniver,” a specialty, and the bartender had poured her a thick shot in a yellowed tumbler, after unscrewing the cap and tearing open a crust of old sugar. For this, he had charged the absurd sum of 35 cents. Featuring Frances Loiselle and Alexander Saxton
January 1, 2018
Another collection of stories, tales of strange beasts and far-flung places. None of them a beginning or an ending, all of them short. Featuring Arun Varma, Kevin Matthew Wong, and Rachel Hart.
December 4, 2017
Tell me, what draws you to that place? Were you raised here as child, wandering to the cliffs in your youth to throw rocks at the crumbling caves past the inlet? Did your elders tell you never to go near it, and you’ve just never shaken the childish want to disobey? Or have you passed by it in the middle of the night, and seen a dim pale light shining through the water and shining through the cracks in the rock face? Featuring Louis-Alexandre Boulet.
November 27, 2017
I was mesmerized by the building, looking up and up at its titanic height. Near this end, it had a tower which soared to a height nearly double that of the bell tower at St. Mark’s. At the peak of the spire was a golden weather vane. Unlike St. Mark’s, the figure on that weather vane was not an angel. Featuring Mirka Loiselle, Arun Varma, and Rachel Hart.
November 20, 2017
You know, I’ve seen the video. There was a good six months where she watched it almost every day, desperately searching for a clue, any kind of hint. All for nothing, obviously. I think we all knew that, the neighbours. But we’d sit with her while she did it, so she wouldn’t have to be alone. Featuring, in order of appearance, Sarah Marchand, Kevin Matthew Wong, and Frances Loiselle.
November 13, 2017
You see, the people who lived here choose to do so for a very specific reason. In spite of the fact that, until their being here, no humans who had ever set foot in this place wanted any part of it.
November 6, 2017
My old man turned to me, and he said, Jimmy, it’s a bad stretch of road along here. If you can avoid it, never drive it after dark. It’s a bad stretch, and bad strange things happen to folks along here after dark.

There's something Wrong with the signal.
March 16, 2017
Now I’d been in that camp fer 'bout six months, an' Jack’d been there fer 'bout four, an' it was me'n'im together what found the Frenchman, floatin’ facedown in that swamp. An' we thought for sure that he was dead. But he wasn't. Stay tuned for announcements on our second season.
March 9, 2017
I’ve never felt at home with my wife’s family, and neither has Alison for that matter. But this time I had this special, sick feeling. There was something about this dinner, and the awful people at it, that felt like a disaster waiting to happen. Featuring, in order of appearance, Emma Burns, Hannah Wilkinson, Alexander Saxton, and Rachel Hart.
March 2, 2017
I must say that I was surprised when I received your call. Not many people are very interested in learning the fine details of my work, given the nature of it. Yet here you are, the Brabant River Funeral Home.
February 23, 2017
I went through sort of a rough patch when I was younger, and one summer I ended up in one of those outdoor education programs so I wouldn't have to redo a year. I thought I'd be okay when they left me alone on one of those little islands. But I wasn't okay, and I wasn't alone. Featuring Eric Synnott.
February 16, 2017
Not every story has an end, or a beginning. Every day we glean half-stories, based on half-memories of half-facts. Catharsis is a rare treat for those who hear these tales, and for those who experience them. Featuring, in order of appearance, Emma Burns, Chai Valladares, Alexander Saxton, Ilan Tzitrin, and Rachel Hart.
February 9, 2017
It had been empty for as long as anyone could remember, and even in my brightest early memories of the neighborhood I grew up in, the house at the end of the lane is stands apart with its darkened windows. Featuring Hannah Wilkinson.
February 2, 2017
Things have been pretty good since the war ended. Energy is a lot cheaper, and that drives down the price on pretty much everything else. Everything seems perfect, though there was a while when I wasn’t sleeping all too well. Let me tell you about it, about that hum.
January 26, 2017
She was walking home on one of the snowiest nights of the year, she tells me. She kind of loses track of time, and eventually comes to this park. A place she'd never heard of, and one she was never able to find again. That big park, with that little house right in the middle of it.
January 19, 2017
I used to be a sawyer, you know? Sawmill man. This weather tonight makes me think of the last place that I ever worked. The terrible cold and the awful feeling you'd get at night. Like you were being watched by something, just beyond the trees. Featuring Chai Valladares and Eric Synnott.
January 12, 2017
I guess you wanna hear that story, huh? It all happened a short while after my father died, years ago. I never knew much about his side of the family, but maybe it was better that way. Maybe it would have been better if I'd never found those photos.
December 23, 2016
In a small town in the middle of winter an old man sits on his porch, watching the snowman. He never takes his eyes off of it, but why? The Wrong Station is a radio horror series in the tradition of Quiet Please and Lights Out, created by Alexander Saxton and Anthony Botelho.
