It’s almost a meme at this point. A group of friends sitting around riffing say “this should be a podcast!.” Often those podcasts don’t work because they lack structure and a clear direction.
Dirt Cheap is NOT one of those podcasts. It’s funny, edgy and off the cuff but still manages to keep a basic structure that makes for an easy, entertaining listen. Husband and wife duo, Amanda Meadows and Geoffrey Golden teamed up with production studio Neon Hum to bring us this unique podcast. The premise is actually pretty simple. Geoffrey reads from a dime store novel called “Murder in the Glass Room” a baffling noir novel from the 1940’s, while Amanda reacts in real time (with plenty of commentary and bantering between the two hosts.) The result is a 22 episode story arc that will leave you laughing.
The pair chat with Evo about the importance of structure within a show, how they take they goofiness seriously, and in general, their creative process for making Dirt Cheap.
