Tales from Albuquerque Part 4

We’re back with the fourth and final episode of Tales From Albuquerque!

Early on in the process of setting up our Patreon, we had the wild idea of putting together a miniseries that told the story of Doctor Herbert West’s time in the distant city of Albuquerque.  We would give this corner of the world of Our Fair City to a group of the best writers and designers the Audio Drama community has to offer, and see what bizarre tales they would create. Thanks to your support through Patreon, it is now a reality!

This miniseries, told Rashomon style around a campfire by some of your favorite (or most reviled) characters. We hope you enjoy it, and thank you to all our listeners and especially our supporters on Patreon for making it possible.
