This week I am taking a bit of a break from the podcast. Not a full “no show” type of thing, but a scaled-back version that I think you will enjoy. One of my favorite classic radio series is Dimension X from 1950-1951. There were only 50 shows created during its run and on this podcast, you will hear two of them.
Featured Story #1 – The Vital Factor
The Vital Factor is about the ruthless head of Crowder Industries, who assumes the Herculean task of being the first man in history to achieve space travel. Building the ship proves easy, but to propel it at sufficient speed seems impossible until one-man arrives with an answer… and a heavy price for achieving the stars.
Featured Story #2 – Untitled Story
The Untitled Story is a sci-fi and detective story in one. Donald Hasen is hired by the city mayor to obtain an elixir of life from an enigmatic scientist. His investigation reveals a strange conspiracy that could have serious repercussions for the future of humanity
This time onRon’s Amazing Storieswe take a walk on the dark side. We have three listener stories that include it in form or another. The first one just might be the creepiest story to date. Then we head to Glacier National Park to witness a rip in space and time, and finally, Tammy encounters an entity shrouded in darkness. Jason Dowd is back with the second installment ofThe Paranormal With Jason. Jason answers listener Camille’s question about time-slips. Do you think you can handle it?

The Story is calledTime Enough At Lastand was first published in IF magazine January of 1953. It was written by Lyn Venable.
OnRon’s Amazing Storieswe will have a special Ghost Stories with Sylvia. Sylvia shares a story calledMessage From The Pastthat should leave you stunned and amazed. Also, we answer a question from Dorothy Griffin of Columbus, Ohio. Dorthy wants to know if either Sylvia or I watch ghost hunting shows and what we think about them. This became a “spirited” conversation (Pun intended!) As an added bonus I will tell the amazing tale of Elmer McCurdy! This is a truly odd,Not So Important Times In History.
