Episode 1: Money

Live, From the stage of the famous Econo Storage Building, it’s Odious Ari’s Hour of Misery and Light Entertainments sponsored by Hooch Booze: When you need to shut off the valve to that ol’ spigot of regret , Hooch Booze.

Tonight’s broadcast stars Scuttles, Skitters, Creepsy, and Cottentail of the Cockroach Quartet, The Grim Reaper, and Noodles, The Yodeling Toddler.

In this first episode we meet the house band, The Cockroach Quartet. We learn how this radio show came to be: the markets have collapsed for good, the climate is finally completely wrecked, and barbarism has taken over. Odious Ari, infamous and aged Vaudevillian, has holed himself up in a storage unit trying to survive the best way he knows how — by entertaining people (swindling them).

He cheats Death by offering up his 3rd ex-wife, does a juggling act from the old country, and is annoyed working with a laryngitic show toddler.
