We continue to dive into fellow Philadelphia podcasts and podcasters as we celebrate the upcoming 6th annual Philadelphia Podcast Festival! On today’s show, we chat with Jared Axelrod—a veteran podcaster, writer, and storyteller. She chats about the epic journey she has taken with her podcast, Voice of Free Planet X, and previous live shows.
ABOUT ‘VOICE OF FREE PLANET X’
The Voice of Free Planet X is public radio from another dimension. Hosted by Jared Axelrod, this show is for fans of science-fiction and fantasy, public radio interview shows like This American Life and Serial, and twists on that format like Limetown and The Black Tapes. If you’re new, good places to start are “Paused,” about a support group for stranded time-travelers, “One. Precious.Thing.” about the first artificial intelligence and it’s programmers, or whatever’s most recent.
ABOUT JARED AXELROD
Jared Axelrod is an author, an illustrator, and a world changer. Through out her eventful life she has also been a circus performer, a puppeteer, a graphic designer, a sculptor, a costume designer, a podcaster and quite a few other things that she’s lost track of but will no doubt remember when the situation calls for it. But that “author” business, that seems to be one she keeps coming back to.
She is the author and illustrator behind “Frankenstein’s Support Group For Misunderstood Monsters,” a comic about monsters and feelings, for Quirk Books.
Jared is the writer and producer of the award-winning podcast, “The Voice Of Free Planet X” where she interviews stranded time-travelers, low-rent superheroes, unrepentant monsters and other such creature of sci-fi and fantasy, as well as the podcasts “Aliens You Will Meet” and “Fables Of The Flying City.” The story started in “Fables Of The Flying City” is concluded in The Battle Of Blood & Ink, a graphic novel published by Tor.
She is not domestic, she is a luxury, and in that sense, necessary.
