Welcome back friends! Before our performances we record these writing episodes for you. Last week's performance took us to Mayberry and The Andy Griffith show. Now it's time to hear how the team came up with the plot of that episode. 

Joining me are two very funny people, Charley McMullen and Will Loden

Will Loden is the star of Virtual Dad, an extremely well made and hilarious advice series, and you can see Charley McMullen on the new LOL Network series You Look Like

Thanks for listening to Let's Write an Episode and come back next month because we will be performing and writing an episode of the Wonder Years!!

Performing The Andy Griffith Show

Hello March 2019, here we are with another performance episode for you. This time around we whistle and walk to the lake in The Andy Griffith Show!

Our story this time went into Fan Fiction territory because we brought in Ben Matlock! During the time of the Andy Griffith Show, Ben Matlock would have been a young lawyer in the state of Georgia. In our episode, we see Matlock pass through the small town of Mayberry and get himself into some trouble. 

Our cast:

Will Loden as Andy Taylor

Charley McMullen as Barney Fife

Angela Garrone as Aunt Bee

Ian Ferguson as Opie Taylor

Tommy Oler as Ben Matlock

Jackson Maness as the Narrator (although all his lines were cut out)

And the cast also provides various voices throughout the episode. 

Also, I want to thank @lafemmeroar on Twitter for suggesting we take on The Andy Griffith show!

Be sure to follow the cast members on social media. Share the show if you enjoy it. Come back next week and hear us come up with this episode!

Writing The Big Bad Beetleborgs

Hello, LWaE listeners! Thanks for coming back at this look into the writing process. As you know, we are coming up with an episode of The Big Bad Beetleborgs! A kid's action show on FOX from the mid-'90s.

Last week you heard the audio drama performance. That was fun. Now you get to listen to the inspiration. Where did WILDCAT come from? Why are the kids selling toys? All those questions have their answers in this podcast. 

Joining me to write the episode are Hayden McOlgan (Blue Beetleborg) and John Miller (Black Beetleborg). OH, and I'm Tommy Oler.

Performing The Big Bad Beetleborgs

Valentine's Day came and went. You survived. Alive to hear this brand new fake episode of The Big Bad Beetleborgs!

Beetleborgs was a kid's action show on FOX in the mid-'90s. It was like Power Rangers but worse. Not a great show at all, but hey, if you got asked to work on this show I don't think very many of us would turn down the offer. That being said, my team and I went ahead and wrote and performed one for no money at all. Know your worth, people. 

That being said, in this episode we create an all-new villain for the Beetleborgs to battle, WILDCAT! He's from the very first issue of the Beetleborg comic book. An issue that was discontinued because it was too gritty, too violent. Now that issue is in Charterville, and VEXOR (the main baddie) wants to get his hands on it. Can the Beetleborgs and Flabber work together and stop Vexor's plan and keep Wildcat at bay? Listen and find out! 

The wonderful cast:

Hayden McOlgan as Drew (Blue Beetleborg)

John Miller as Roland (Black Beetleborg)

Natalie Higdon as Jo (Red Beetleborg)

Charley McMullen as Flabber

Doug Gillon as WILDCAT

Tootie Two Times as Nano

The Cast and Bridgette Wallace as Various Other Voices

and me, Tommy Oler as the Narrator

We've got a special shout out to another podcast you might like in this episode, so if you like Lore and Knifepoint Horror, please check out our friends at the Knowing My Nightmares podcast

Also, we've got some fun music in this episode as well. If you'd like to know more about the artists, please check them out too!

Happy New Year! I know, we're 20 days late for a happy new year, but we haven't released an episode yet in 2019 so...HAPPY. NEW. YEAR!

This month we've got a new fake episode of Addams Family for you. This one was a lot of fun to write and perform. You'll notice there are no bloopers at the end of this episode, that's because we didn't really mess up. This cast was a well oiled machine. Well, someone coughed once during a line but we redid the line and I cut the cough out so that doesn't count! 

Enough of the inside scoop stuff here's the cast:

Doug Gillon as Gomez Addams

Bridgette Wallace as Morticia Addams

Angela Garrone as Wednesday Addams and various voices

Charley McMullen as Pugsley Addams and various voices

And Tommy Oler as your narrator. 

Also want to say thank you to person behind the harpsichord music in the episode: Ergo Phizmiz.

Writing The Brady Bunch

This year went by fast! Our first full year of releasing shows is almost here! Thanks to everyone who listens, the 300-500 of you that do, I really appreciate it.

This week you get to hear us write our very own fake episode of The Brady Bunch. 

Last week you heard the performance, now you can hear how it came to be. Behind the scenes: you'll hear why Andy Warhol is even in the episode, the focus on Jan's period, and the struggle to even find what this episode would be about. 

It's all great fun and I hope you enjoy it. 

Joining me (I'm Tommy Oler by the way. Hi.) are two wonderfully funny people. 

Sara Kaye Larson and Bridgette Wallace

They are each multi-talents in their own right, and as you'll see they contribute more than I do in this episode of LWAE. 

If you're a fan of the show, follow our guests on social media, like the show, subscribe, tell your friends, it all helps in the long run. Now get to listening and go have a Happy New Year!
