    I have just discovered the hidden gem that is online radio drama. I am a writer, actor, musician and singer. I am very interested in getting involved with a project and am indeed writing my own fantasy radio drama at the moment. I think getting some experience would be fun, valuable and exciting. I have a decent recording microphone and would be glad to contribute my abilities to something.

    Hoping to hear back soon,

    Ben Shaw

    Hi. I write a column at the New Pulp site and I’d love to interview you about Broken Sea. My column is aimed at people who are just discovering the world of New Pulp, so one of the things I’m doing is profiling New Pulp publishers and talking about what they offer and how they fit into the New Pulp landscape. Would you be interested in answering a few questions about your business and its product?

    Just dropping a line to say I’m airing your audio dramas on my radio show on Sunday nights. I love the Prisoner and was searching about “Shatter Visage” when I came upon it. I was taken aback when I found that not only someone else knew of the comic but had actually taken the time to produce an audio drama of it! Great stuff that I love, and most of all, want to share with my audience.

    • Hi Kame,

      Thank you very much for your kind words. I’m delighted you’re enjoying The Prisoner and I’m honoured you are sharing it with your listeners. That’s made my day. I loved the comic when it came out and almost immediately I felt that the dialogue and story was strong enough to work as a a radio play. Thanks to Brokensea for helping me realise this particular ambition.

    Hello! Love your work. I am a big fan of your older recordings. Namely assorted Lovecraft readings. I think they are from Halloween2008, as indicated to the defuncted link at


    Any idea where I can download them again?

    Hi Guys
    Really enjoy your shows. I would like to get involved in some way. I have completed an acting
    course at the local college. Have been in many amdram productions. I have also been a pro radio presenter. I now present a show on our local hospital radio network. Love to play with different voices.
    look forward to hearing from you.

  9. Bill Hollweg says:

    Welcome to to the fun and thank you for the kind words on the shows! Very cool you have done some pro wrestling and the local radio for hospitals!

    Though we accept anyone who just wants to have a bit of fun in the theatre of the mind, or just wants to chat at the yahoo and FB page any experience is always groovy! (Yes I talk like this much to my g-kiddos chagrin….LoL)

    We are always looking for people who want to share the joy and groovy fun of this medium we all have such a blast making!

    One of the easiest ways to keep up with cast calls is our yahoo group-

    or drop a line to our main email addy which we all see- exec@brokensea.com
    or my email is: billhollweg@gmail.com

    Thanks agian for taking the time to post and lending an ear!


  10. I’m exploring the world of online audio drama and found Gaia’s Voyages. Now that I know where you are, I will certainly listen to the other shows here.
    It’s comforting to know that people are passionate enough to produce this sort of entertainment, and not everyone will settle for the desolate wasteland of television.

    Best Wishes,

  11. Bill Hollweg says:

    A sincere thank you for the kind words James!
    And agree TV is a black hole these days….

    Anyway may you have a great Christmas holiday and enjoy the audio here my friend!

  12. Ron says:

    Hello folks, I found out about your website from Wikipedia’s “The Prisoner” page, but wanted to know how much love was put into one of my favorite shows, and lo and behold, I found Doctor Who as well ( I enjoyed it). I would like to know if these shows are for purchase or just for listening online?

    Please let me know, thank you.

    Thanks for lending an ear Ron!

    All our shows are free, and can be downloaded from the site. We make these for the love of the medium and the fun of mixing (and panning and making a full audio meal as it were) the adventures. Simply the most fun I have ever had as far as a creative medium my friend! We ask only that you lend an ear and enjoy, and if it moves you let us know what you thought of the show as the only payment we get is response from the people who lend an ear.

    We welcome all to join as voice actors if the mood suits you and hold our cast calls at our yahoo, https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/BrokenSea/info

    With 270 from New Zealand to Canada, to Germany to the UK and the US (even Texas where I live 2 hours from Robert E. Howard’s house) , it’s a joy to mix people from all over the globe yet make them sound as if we were all in the same room or alternate dimension as the case may be.

    Again thank you for lending an ear, and pop around the site here as we have done tons of shows from original to fan-fic to recreations of classic OTR.

    Is there any chance we will get Queen of the Black Coast back now that the movie with Jason Moma came out and flopped years ago and it doesn’t look like they’ll be making more? LOL

  15. Kyle says:

    I recently listened to your Prisoner audios. Absolutely wonderful. I really hope a sequel is in the works as you left it on a cracking cliffhanger.

  16. Bill Hollweg says:

    Love them myself my friend!
    But those are Gareth Preston’s Opus of Groovy AD (writing/mixing/VA-ing) so will have to wait until Gareth (and the real world) again give him time.

    Many thanks for the kind words!!

  17. Maximiliano says:

    Hi guys! I am a blind man from Brazil (living in the US) who loves listening to audio dramas. I also love Doctor Who and I am wondering if we will see any new episodes at some point? This following link shows way more episodes for season 4 than what I have. http://dwexpanded.wikia.com/wiki/BrokenSea_Audio_Productions Were there ever any episode released post 50th anniversary behind the sofa? I also enjoy the other productions and always look forward to hear the work you guys put into these. It is extremely appreciated! Much love and hugs from Boston MA!

  18. Bill Hollweg says:

    Me want Lother to make more NOW by CROM 😉

  19. Kyle says:

    Hey! Love your work! Got a few questions though…

    1. Why is the original Planet of the Apes maxi-series no longer available on iTunes?
    2. Is Beneath the Planet of the Apes complete?
    3. Has it really taken 8 years to complete?
    4. Do you intend to make sequels after?
    5. Why was the Escape From New York sequel abandoned?

  20. Bill Hollweg says:

    All things take time my friend. Appreciate the kind words though brother!

    And I mix/script 5 (The Saga of the Grog and Gryphon, Amity: Dark Waters, BPOTA, 2109: Black Sun Rising, The OTR SwagCast) shows these days, as well as working 4 jobs so bear with me on the Simian AD and yes there will be more eps of BPOTA (3-4 more eps or so to complete it, and at some point ESCAPE POTA), just got to get back to their world and mix it.

    The EFNY script is complete, but Stevie has taken on a new job and has not the time he used to in order to mix. I will hollar at Stevie on the I-tunes (although I myself hate I-tunes , I do know many people like it)

    We do all this for free so bear with us when the real world gets in the way of making AD. 😉


  21. Bill Hollweg says:

    I have mixed over 100 shows since we started BrokenSea back in 2007, and still having a BALL

  22. Draven says:

    This is Draven, bills granddaughter. He loved this website with everything he had. Thank y’all for being here for him and giving him friends that he might not have ever met, but were honestly in his heart. I hope y’all continue to grow and create new audio dramas and bring as much life to other people as y’all brought to my grandfather.

    • stevie says:

      I truly am so sorry to hear your news Draven. here for you if you need me. Your Dad was like a Brother to me.
