What happens when two sorority girls go on a road trip to West Virginia? There have been variations on this theme throughout much of the horror/comedy genres.

We are introduced to Amber and Jamie, two friends that complement each other well. Amber being the hyper sexualized girl who is outspoken and comfortable receiving lots of attention, while Jamie exudes more of a quiet confidence and knows how to go with the flow. I am hoping listeners can ease into this episode and feel comfortable with the rapport these characters have.

After having a meal at the diner, the two girls continue down the highway in hopes of reaching a secluded cabin where they can let loose with some guy “friends.” Unfortunately, things don’t work out the way they had hoped.

The trick with Cicada Madness! was to create scenarios that did not require too much suspension of disbelief. Cicadas are in fact swarming certain areas of the country, and the sounds they make can reach above 100 decibels! The only stretch in Cicada Madness! is that the bugs are huge, the size of watermelons!

This has been an experiment from the start and there’s a lot going on in each episode. My hope is that listeners will want to revisit the episodes and share with their friends. Rock music, cicadas, voice acting, what more could you ask for?!

until next time…..
