The Mind Reels Ole Timey Theatre presents Ellery Queen

Sue and I are finding great success with the radio plays we’ve been performing, and the amazing casts we’ve been able to populate the stories with. This week, we take on an Ellery Queen mystery from the early 40s, and while the subject material may not be as goofy as some of the ones we’ve…

Bomb Girls – The Final Episode…

I’ve written about Bomb Girls since it started. Sue and I have interviewed Meg Tilly, Jodi Balfour, Charlotte Hegele, Ali Liebert, Michael Seater, Janis Lundman, Adrienne Mitchell, and Michael MacLennan. I’ve let these people and their creations into my life, and if I’m completely honest, into my heart. We’ve only spoken to them briefly, shared…

Bomb Girls – Don’t Let Go

On every occasion, Tim does the heartfelt and wonderfully-worded write-ups to each of our our beloved Bomb Girls episodes.  So close to the end, now, I feel it is only proper that he should also do the final two posts of the series.  However, upon learning yesterday that our girls will not see a Season…

Bomb Girls S02E09 – Something Fierce

Strong women pushing the barriers society constrains them with, both then and now, is the theme for this week’s episode of Bomb Girls.

Bomb Girls S02E08 – Fifth Column

What a beautiful episode. Kate’s (Charlotte Hegele) stirring voice and a single tear running down a wounded soldier’s cheek.

Bomb Girls S02E07 – Party Line

August of 1940, Dieppe. 6086 Canadian soldiers supported by the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force spilled onto the north coast of France for Operation Jubilee… Almost 4000 were killed, wounded or captured, and a retreat was forced. That is what is happening in the ETO this week, as Bomb Girls returns, in an…
