#18: Bet Yer Life, CaptainBlackbeard!

In this episode, we follow America’s number one game show host, Wink Payola. As we find out what America’s favorite son, does with the other twenty three hours of their day?

This episode is the most ambitious thing we have ever attempted. Bet Yer Life, CaptainBlackbeard is a hilarious, wild and darkly fascinating story that explores Media, Consumerism, Greed, Fame. And what it is to live on the dark side of the internet. The highs and lows that come from it. This story is also strongly about AI technology, how incredible it is and the consequences of how fast it’s progressing.

Bet Yer Life, CaptainBlackbeard was a whole lot of fun to make for ye! This story ties up a lot of different things in the CaptainBlackbeard Universe, and marks the beginning of a new era for CaptainBlackbeard Radio. It is challenge to create the right balance for ye, mates. When we come up with an idea for the show, it evolves into deeply rich universes that could span many hours to tell the full story of. However, we respect yer time and do not wish to Tommy and Pam ye. So we hope ye enjoy this wild and darkly hilarious story that we promise ye, everything works out in the end.

This episode also features a number of the wild humor and short pieces ye have come to know and love CaptainBlackbeard Radio for. As well as the best soundtrack on either side of the Dark Seas!

We view CaptainBlackbeard Radio, as existing and being created in different eras. We feel a new era began with #17 and has exploded with this episode. This is truly the most exciting and ground breaking time for this project. When we started, we loved bringing ye classic film epics, because we wanted to give ye the best possible auditory thrill ride and hopefully have ye feel the wonderful feelings we did when we experienced those epics. However, now, with this new technology. We can create everything, ourselves. Everything ye hear in this episode, outside of the opening, was created with current generation or the previous generation technology. This is game changing in every way imaginable.

We had a lot of fun, pushing our AI Voice Actors to their limits. We hope ye enjoy it as well. As with all our broadcasts, this one is highly experimental. But we think this is one of the best stories and productions we have ever put together.

Mates, this is the most exciting and wonderful thing we could be doing in right now. The technology used in this project has exploded into a golden age. This project has advanced from beginning with completely archaic, difficult to understand, 1980s technology. To now mind bending, reality shattering incredible technology that is advancing so quickly, with each generation being game changing. This technology will change the world and completely shift the creative balance away from the current monopolized power structures. Much like how animation is an altered medium where anything is possible visually. This new technology is exactly that but with sound. We hope ye give this episode a listen, if for nothing else, just to hear and experience what is possible now and how incredible, mindbending and game changing this new technology is!
