TM – EP 000: Promo

Tales From The MuseumCrusade, Science fiction Audio Theater

An audio theater mini-series written by Charles Russell

The Regional Museum in Johnson City, Tennessee has been the site of some strange goings-on ever since it was first built. Legends surround the place: tales of murders, mysterious disappearances, and bizarre religious orders. Some of these were “documented” by a PBS special, but most are passed on by word of mouth. Most of the staff there doesn’t believe a word of it … but Special Services coordinator Keith Nash? He’s starting to think … well, he doesn’t know what to think.

All in all, the museum is an interesting and challenging place to work … and things keep happening to make it more interesting all the time.

The executive producer of Darker Projects is Eric Busby.
