Dreams Of Rio — A Classic Jack Flanders Adventure: Part Three

Tune in on Fri­day for the third episode of an excit­ing new radio ser­i­al from our friends at ZBS Foun­da­tion: Dreams Of Rio! This is the third of 13 half-hour episodes, one every Fri­day at noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT.

DREAMS OF RIO — A JACK FLANDERS ADVENTURE

Hyp­not­ic voodoo beats, lush jun­gle nois­es, trop­i­cal rains, an enig­mat­ic Euro­pean Pro­fes­sor, an allur­ing female anthro­pol­o­gist… a few of the ingre­di­ents which M. Ful­ton has fash­ioned into his audio fan­ta­sy, Dreams of Rio, an engag­ing romp through the forests and sam­ba clubs of Brazil. Dreams of Rio chron­i­cles the trop­i­cal adven­tures of hero Jack Flan­ders as he treks through the mys­te­ri­ous wilds of Brazil­ian rain­forests and impos­si­ble sit­u­a­tions in his search for the Lost City. The crisp, stereo record­ings come vibrant­ly alive with lus­cious ambi­ent sound record­ed by Ful­ton and Clark on loca­tion in Brazil. Here’s a lit­tle hint…

Tarot @ Teatime — Episode 35: Relationship Spreads

The most pop­u­lar top­ic for read­ings is rela­tion­ships: whether roman­tic, work-relat­ed, fam­i­ly or friend­ships. Most ques­tions con­cern one of three aspects of rela­tion­ships: attract­ing them, main­tain­ing them, or endings/loss. This episode looks at spreads that are help­ful in answer­ing these kinds of very com­mon ques­tions. In addi­tion the pro­gramme pro­vides some sug­ges­tions on how to frame the most effec­tive ques­tions — and the ques­tions to avoid.

The episode goes out on Thurs­days and Sun­days at 12 noon and 4pm Pacific/SLT, up to and includ­ing June 30th.
