So, Where’s Season Two Already?! /
Hello, Minneapolis!

Oi! Where’s the much-ballyhooed Season Two of SuperHuman Times?

Good question. That’s why I thought it was time to post a good answer. I hope this will do.

That answer, in a word, is time. Bear in mind that, as much as we love doing audio theatre, everyone involved with Prometheus has day jobs. That leaves only select evenings and weekends for us to produce these shows. Not a lot of time, but we all treasure it.

And when we do get the time to make them, the Times episodes take a back seat to the group’s flagship show, The Arbiter Chronicles, of which I’ve written much in the past. There are big doin’s afoot in Steve Wilson’s Arbiter-verse, and he’s channeling his Herculean efforts into getting the next story, “Foundation and Desire,” into the can so that he can share them with his large and eager audience. It was recorded in a marathon session on Super Bowl Sunday and is set to air – four months of evenings and weekends later – in early April. See what I mean about time? Anyway, keep checking for it. You won’t be disappointed.

After that comes the next Times, “Dashing,” the three-parter I’ve been crowing about for damn near a year. I can’t wait to find out who Steve casts in it, and I hope you’ll hang around to hear them.

In the meantime: I recently learned that the Times pilot, “True North,” will be airing on March 16 on Great Northern Audio's Sound Affects, KFAI-FM’s “audio playground” hosted by Jerry Stearns of the Twin Cities (where Prometheus won its Mark Time Award in 2003). If anyone reading this discovered Times through Sound Affects, please email me and let me know you’re out there. And, of course, let me know if you want to hear more stories. We certainly have more to tell.

Time permitting, that is.
