  • Ostium Firsts: Introducing How it Ends 30:13

    About How it Ends

    On an ordinary evening in November 1993, Micah’s entire world collapsed when her father, Nolan, died in a car accident. As time passed, Micah suffered from horrifying night terrors and an eerie recurring dream that left her exhausted and on edge. How it Ends was supposed to free her from her nightmares and help her deal with her loss… but when she receives new information about her father’s accident from an unexpected source, Micah’s world changes once again. And she discovers that sometimes dreams aren’t dreams at all—they’re memories.


    About Season 1, Episode 1: Nolan Jones

    Micah knew that when she left her New Jersey hometown for college in Rhode Island, she'd never look back. Episode 1 of How it Ends brings us into Micah's world 25 years after her dad's death and despite her attempt, all those years ago... she quickly learns that you can't run from your past. This episode features one of Micah's rare trips back home to visit her mother, Ava. As their conversation stirs up long-forgotten memories and Ava can't--or won't--answer Micah's questions, it sets Micah on a search for information about a potential link between her father's accident and a recurring nightmare she's had since childhood.

  • Ostium Firsts: Introducing The Cellar Letters 16:06

    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander here. As you know, I was very happy to announce recently that the Ostium Podcast has joined the Rusty Quill Network. And for the last few months I’ve started listening to some of the great shows that are part of that network, and then I started chatting with the creator of one of those shows, and in the coming weeks you’re going to get a treat here on the Ostium feed with the first episodes of some of those shows. Like I said, I’ve been listening to these shows and they’re really awesome, so I wanted to share their awesomeness with you and hopefully help you get hooked on a great new audiodrama, or two, or ten! So these will start releasing over the ensuing weeks and months and hopefully you’ll give them a listen and then, once you’re hooked, you find them in your podcast app and subscribe and start enjoying all the other episodes.


    Our next recommendation from the Rusty Quill Network is The Cellar Letters.


    Episode 1 - The Move: I recently lost my job and decided to move across the country and document the whole thing. Things in the new house seem a bit... off.

  • Ostium Sagas 001 – Introintroduction 10:58

    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander. And as we continue putting Ostium Season Six together, it’s time to let you enjoy what else I’ve been working on all year. You’ve probably heard me mention the Ostium Sagas a few times . . . this new what has now become its own big, long running series about a strange book Steve finds in the Ostium Network from the eighteenth century. You might have already listened to the first episode when it was released a while ago, but you’re getting it again to kick off the series in order, but don’t worry, you’ll also get the second episode as well. And then a new episode every week until Ostium Season Six is ready to release. And we’ll keep the Ostium Sagas running on alternate weeks as we release season six episodes, so you’ll have plenty to keep you entertained. 


    Now, if you enjoy the first two episodes and want more right away, you can become a patron on the Ostum Network Patreon and by supporting at any level, you’ll get access to all the Ostium Sagas episodes already released there, which is about fifteen episodes. So something to think about. Again, just head on over to our Patreon.


    Okay, I hope you enjoy the Ostium Sagas. This little idea I had at the beginning of the year that’s blossomed into something I can’t stop writing and recording and putting together, and totally love every moment of it along the way. 


    Let’s now take a journey together into the Ostium Sagas . . .

  • Ostium Firsts: Introducing The Storage Papers 20:30

    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander here, and before we get to this week’s Firsts episode started, we wanted to take a moment to address the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe versus Wade on June 24th, 2022. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what is best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. Abortion is a basic healthcare need for millions of people of all genders, and this decision has far-reaching consequences for every single person in America. People, not politicians, should be able to make their own decisions including when it comes to abortion care. We have more information linked at choice.crd.co, and if you are able, consider donating to abortion funds. Please speak up, take care, and spread the word.  


    As you know, I was very happy to announce recently that the Ostium Podcast has joined the Rusty Quill Network. And for the last few months I’ve started listening to some of the great shows that are part of that network, and then I started chatting with the creator of one of those shows, and in the coming weeks you’re going to get a treat here on the Ostium feed with the first episodes of some of those shows.

  • Ostium Firsts: Introducing Malevolent 48:52

    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander here, and before we get to this week’s Firsts episode started, we wanted to take a moment to address the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe versus Wade on June 24th, 2022. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what is best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. Abortion is a basic healthcare need for millions of people of all genders, and this decision has far-reaching consequences for every single person in America. People, not politicians, should be able to make their own decisions including when it comes to abortion care. We have more information linked at choice.crd.co, and if you are able, consider donating to abortion funds. Please speak up, take care, and spread the word.  


    As you know, I was very happy to announce recently that the Ostium Podcast has joined the Rusty Quill Network. And for the last few months I’ve started listening to some of the great shows that are part of that network, and then I started chatting with the creator of one of those shows, and in the coming weeks you’re going to get a treat here on the Ostium feed with the first episodes of some of those shows. Like I said, I’ve been listening to these shows and they’re really awesome, so I wanted to share their awesomeness with you and hopefully help you get hooked on a great new audiodrama, or two, or ten! So these will start releasing over the ensuing weeks and months and hopefully you’ll give them a listen and then, once you’re hooked, you find them in your podcast app and subscribe and start enjoying all the other episodes.


    Our next recommendation from the Rusty Quill Network is Malevolent.

  • Welcome to the Ostium Sagas 11:10

    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander here. So I wanted to talk to you a little more about the Ostium Sagas. It’s this miniseries I started putting together to keep you wonderful listeners entertained while we continue working on season six. Speaking of which, I'm shooting for a tentative release date of January 2023 for season six. So, what was supposed to be a short miniseries has now ballooned into a big, long-running spinoff series. Funny how things like that with Ostium tend to happen. I’ve been writing it all longhand and just finished filling up my sixth journal with the ongoing story and I’ve got at least twenty-five thousand words written at this point. Yeah, it’s pretty big and I’m having a lot of fun writing and putting it together.


    Anyway, the treat I have for you today is that first episode of the Ostium Sagas. I’ve actually started releasing it on the Ostium Network Patreon, which you can find here. I’m also doing something special over there where all patrons get access to it at whichever tier they choose to subscribe at. Episodes of the Ostium Sagas have already been released, and some patrons have said they’re really enjoying the story, and there’s new episodes dropping every week. So you could get access to the Ostium Sagas right now by becoming a patron right here. And like I said, this is going to be a long-running series as I have over thirty episodes already written, with many more to come. So one last time, become a patron at any level via this link and get access to the Ostium Sagas right now.


    The Ostium Sagas is created, written and produced by Alex C. Telander.


    The voice of Steve is Alex C. Telander.


    The theme song is “Synthwave Car” by Gushito.


    The music featured in this episode is “Ohm” by Michele Nobler.

  • Rusty Quill Network Announcement 1:52

    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander here; creator and writer for Ostium. And it gives me great pleasure to announce that the Ostium Podcast is now officially part of the Rusty Quill Network. When they got in touch with me over a year ago and we began talking, it didn’t take me long to know this would be the beginning of a beautiful partnership and friendship. Rusty Quill aligns with Team Ostium in values and representation, and we’re honored to be included with all these wonderful shows on the Rusty Quill Network. 


    What does this mean for the Ostium Podcast? Well, nothing is really going to change. We’re still going to be making the show in exactly the same way we have for the last five years, and Rusty Quill will be helping with hosting and promotion and getting Ostium into more people’s ears. 


    And I would just like to welcome our new Rusty Quill listeners. You’ve got five seasons of Ostium to enjoy, plus a bunch of bonus material. And we’re working hard on season six right now which we’re hoping to get released later this year. But I also have something else in the works to keep everyone entertained coming late summer if season six isn’t ready yet. I came up with an idea for a miniseries that’s now turned into a potential long-running bonus series called the Ostium Sagas. So that’s something to look forward to later this year. 


    And just a quick mention of our Patreon, where you can get access to the Ostium Sagas in the very near future, as well as a lot of bonus content on there, including ad free episodes to all the Ostium Network shows. Once again that’s patreon.com/ostiumpodcast.


    Okay, thanks for listening to this update, and again we’re really happy to be with the Rusty Quill Network, and if you want to hear more about how this all happened, I’ll be talking in detail in the next Writing Walks episode, which is my writing podcast available wherever you get your podcasts.


    Thank you listeners, old and new, and may you always find your door.

  • Behind the Ostium Part 1 – Origin Story 22:06

    Hello wonderful listeners, Alex C. Telander here, creator and writer for Ostium. So I’ve got good news and bad news and I always go with the bad news first, so here we go: it’s looking like Ostium Season Six won’t be coming out until 2022, hopefully in January. Due to Covid and a number of other factors, including the fact that my family will be welcoming our second son into the world in December, things got pushed back. But I’m really hoping for early 2022. And there will be an announcement towards the end of August about something we’re going to be doing with Ostium Season Six.


    Okay, now the good news. Because it’s going to be a while before you get new content here, and as you know I’m a big fan of releasing extras, you’re going to start getting the Behind the Ostium series. Until now this has only been available on our Patreon, but I’ve decided to start releasing it here on our main feed to keep you entertained until you get new episodes of Ostium. Now, if you want to get access to the entire series, get ad free episodes, and help support the Ostium Network, you can join our Patreon at the $5 tier and above and get access right now to over 40 episodes of Behind the Ostium. Visit the Ostium Patreon for more details.


    In the debut episode of Behind the Ostium - a new series giving a behind the scenes look at Ostium from the story development to writing to recording to production - I talk about where the idea for Ostium came from, how I developed it into a podcast, and some of the communication I had with Chris Fletcher (the voice of Jake Fisher) in the early days when Ostium was just beginning, leading all the way up to the release of the first episode, Population Zero, on January 1, 2017.

  • CROATOAN REMIX EPISODE 31:27
    So last year the Ostium Podcast got invited to do a showcase for a virtual podcast convention, but unfortunately things never worked out. Nevertheless, I had my awesome sound guys at Hail and Well Met Podcasts play around with the second episode of Ostium, CROATOAN, where they added in better sound effects, some really cool music, and kicked the whole episode up a notch, and I was really happy with the result. Since this new reworked episode never got used, it’s just been sitting on my harddrive doing nothing, so I decided to share it with all you wonderful listeners as a treat. So enjoy Ostium Episode 2: CROATOAN as you’ve never heard it before.

  • Lake Clarity Episode One 21:24
    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander. So I realized recently that during the mid-season break for season five I ran the first episodes to the shows we were doing crossovers with and forgot to do the rest of the crossover shows once the season was done, so that’s what you’ll get to hear over the next few days, ending with the only two episodes ever released of the wonderful Starless. Give them a listen, they’re all great shows. And if you enjoy them, be sure to check them out wherever you get your podcasts and subscribe.

    The other thing I wanted to talk about was The Earth Collective. This was the show we did the first crossover with in season five. In addition to being a great show with incredible world building, the creator just launched a Kickstarter for the first Earth Collective Book, so if you would like to go support that and get a bunch of goodies too, you can check it out here:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tecstory/the-earth-collective-book-volume-one.

    Seth, Ally, Mike, Erin, and Brandon have arrived at Lake Clarity! Today is full of introductions, exploration, and crowbars. What will the teens find in the headmaster's cabin? Why did Camp Clarity shut down? Why is this area so desolated? The teens seek out to find answers to all these questions and more!

    Join the kids as they celebrate their last summer together, and discover the mysteries of Lake Clarity.

  • SCP Crossover 29:41
    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander here. So last year I got to talking with my good podcast friend Pacific Obadiah, who makes a lot of great shows. One of the shows he helps make is SCP Archives, a fantastic horror podcast.

    They've done a couple crossover episodes and he invited me to do one with Ostium and it came out great. A real dark and bloody episode.

    And now he's very graciously allowed me to rebroadcast the episode on the Ostium feed, which you are literally listening to right now.

    So sit back, unless you're driving, in which case keep doing exactly what you're doing. And get ready for a very special crossover event with this creepy Ostium episode run through the SCP filter.

    And if you enjoy it, be sure to check out the great show SCP Archives wherever you get your podcasts.

    And thanks once again to Pacific for coming to me with this and letting me repost it to you wonderful Ostium listeners.

  • Episode 59 – What Goes Around 15:50
    And now we come to the end of season 5. This is been a lot of hard work to write and put together, but it’s also been an absolute joy. I knew Jake and Monica would go on lots of adventures over the course of this season, but never envisioned many of them. Of course, there were some journeys that could not be completed, even though I wrote the scripts for those episodes, and if you become a patron of the Ostium Network at patreon.com/ostiumpodcast you’ll get to read those scripts.

    I always knew Jake and Monica would make it back together at some point, but not exactly how, and what interesting trinkets they’d be bringing along. For now this brings an end to their journey in searching for each other through many of the doors of Ostium, and now they are back together. It also represents a break until the beginning of their next adventure coming in 2021 with season six. Stay tuned and keep your ears open for aural breadcrumbs and auditory surprises being released before the start of next season.

    This episode was written by Alex C. Telander.

    The part of Jake is performed by Chris Fletcher.

    The part of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie.

    Sound design was done by Hail and Well Met Podcasts. Check out more of their great work at hailandwellmetpodcasts.com.

  • Episode 57 – Albion 18:01
    Kind of Lord of the Rings, except with an awesome gay sorceress on the planet of Albion.

    I’ve wondered for a while with the creation of the Ostium spin-off Circe on the distant planet of Albion, if Jake or Monica might one day end up there somehow. This is the story that came out of that, as I wondered what Pragma might be up to now that Thyra is gone. I think there may be more visits from one or more of our main characters to Albion in the future. You’ll just have to wait and see.

    This episode was written by Alex C. Telander.

    A comedic post-apocalyptic tale, this podcast follows former radio host Jo Prendergast at the explosive end of the world. Keep up with Jo’s ham radio transmissions as she uses humor and luck to survive.

    I fell in love with this show from the start, with the interesting, diverse cast. The funny writing. And just the realness of the show, even if it is set in a post-apocalyptic world. There’s a whole episode about periods, because that’s still something to deal with when the world is ending. If you thought you’d heard your fill of end of the world audiodramas, then you really need to check this one out.

  • Episode 53 – Starless 17:10
    A post-apocalyptic audio drama, in which rampant fires have destroyed not only lives and the earth, but what little civilization was left. Rhana is on a mission to restore humanity to the world.

    While only a few episodes of Starless were ever released, due to the creator being unable to continue to with the show, what was released was compelling and engrossing. When we arranged to do a crossover episode, I was excited about writing it, considering for the last three years I have dealt with devastating fires in some shape or form, living in Northern California. It was a future I could comprehend, and an empathy I could identify with. While the main feed for Starless is no longer available, listeners are able to access it on archive.org. A link is in the show notes.

    This episode was written by Alex C. Telander.

    On July 15th, 2018, Dwayne sent me his fanfic for Door 129. I’d invited Ostium fans to submit they’re own Ostium door stories and Dwayne got in touch with an Ostium door idea he had about Centralia, which he wrote and recorded, and we put it together and released it. And then people started asking Dwayne what happened next after his Ostium door story? And thus Manifestations was born. Dwayne originally said he wasn’t a writer, and now has his very own audiodrama that’s really good and I’m looking forward to season two. So be sure to check out season one of Manifestations, which you can marathon right now.

    This episode was written and directed by Dwayne Farver.

    The part of Alan is performed by Dwayne Farver.

    The part of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie.

    The part of QILA is performed by Penelope Dyer.

    The theme music is Breathe by Chill Carrier.

    Sound design was done by Hail and Well Met Podcasts. Check out more of their great work at hailandwellmetpodcasts.com.

    Hey everyone, Alex here. While we’re in our mid-season hiatus I thought you might enjoy hearing the first episodes of the shows we’ve done crossovers with for the first half of season 5.

    It's an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew.

    Watchtower 10's necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who's only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies.

    Here’s the first episode of the Bridge.

  • Behind the Collective 1:23:21
    We are living in unprecedented times. Not just with the pandemic, but with our country, and the rest of the world, speaking up and fighting against racism that has been going on for centuries. Changes need to happen at every level of our society.

    If you can, please help support Black Lives Matter: https://www.thecut.com/article/george-floyd-protests-how-to-help-where-to-donate.html

    I’d also like to recommend season two of Scene on Radio, Seeing White, which goes into the history of systemic racism in the United States: https://www.sceneonradio.org/seeing-white/

    _______________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Earlier this year, I was invited by Mike Troup of the Earth Collective to participate in a new show, Behind the Collective, where we put each other in the hot seat and ask questions about each other’s shows. In this particular episode, we talked about each of our first episodes, which led to discussions about writing, creativity, storytelling, and podcasting. Mike has graciously allowed us to run this episode of Behind the Collective for the Ostium listeners. Enjoy!

    Glamour spell gone wrong? Astral projection got you untethered? Want to know why your angry dead rich father is haunting you? Consider Kalila Stormfire’s Economical Magick Services. After a controversial fallout with her coven, Kalila Stormfire must juggle complex clients and an anonymous critic hellbent on besmirching her new business. The decaying urban block where Kal operates appreciates her affordable experience in a broad range of supernatural ailments and remedies. Still, Kal is not sure if her talent is enough to stop whoever has been posting bad reviews and persuading customers to cancel appointments. If you like stories about minority witches in modern-day working class neighborhoods, meddling love goddesses, and morally ambiguous spellcraft…this is the tale for you.

    I can remember hearing the first teasers and chatter about this show when the amazing Lisette Alvarez first announced it was being released. My initial thought was how a show like this hadn’t been done already, quickly followed by . . . I can’t wait to hear it! Every episode in its two seasons has been a delight, from the early days when we were just getting to know Kalila, to the expanding complex and diverse cast, to the growing and fascinating world. I continue to so look forward to hear where this story goes next.

    This episode was co-written by Lisette Alvarez and Alex C. Telander.

    The part of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie.

  • Episode 43 – The Bridge 19:51
    It's an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew.

    Watchtower 10's necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who's only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies.

    Unbeknownst to the general public (but totally knownst to each watchtower's crew), these stations also hold a secret that could potentially destroy the world...or save it.

    The Bridge is a fictional serialized fantasy podcast about the monsters we fear, the monsters we can become, and the stories we leave behind.

    I can’t remember how I stumbled upon this amazing show, but as soon as I read the premise, I was already hooked. And then once I started listening I was even more drawn in by the interesting characters, the explored history and mythology of the world, as well as its complete unpredictability. I never know what’s going to happen next, but I know I very much want to know. If you haven’t listened to this show, do yourself a favor, and subscribe now.

    This episode was written by Alex C. Telander.

    The part of Jake is performed by Chris Fletcher.

    The part of Etta is performed by Alex Brown.

    The Bridge theme song was composed by the equally fantastic Jake Hull.

  • Episode 42 – Slumberland 17:21
    Slumberland invites your ears to visit Slumberland, a small island town in the US. Come along with Thomas Edward M, the freelance soundman. He's been hired to meet the locals and record their oral histories for the town's time capsule. The unfolding history of the town mixes folklore, paranormal, mystery and humor.

    I had this podcast recommended to me a couple years ago and was delighted to find a lot to catch up on. It was the first show I listened to that had episodes on the shorter side and it did take me a little getting used. I marathoned it pretty quickly and now I avidly await each new episode and know it’s always going to be a delight. The creator does a great job of creating a whole unique world with this island and its strange and unusual characters, as well as taking listeners back into the past and how things came to be. I heartily recommend you start the show from the beginning, each episode is a little gem in this deep and wondrous jewelry box.

  • Episode 41 – The Earth Collective 26:32
    The Earth Collective is a sci-fi audio drama delivered as a first hand account from the eyes of Joseph Crane, Humanity's "last historian," as he attempts to chronicle their survival in rolling cities known as The Collective, fleeing from a malicious entity only found on the dark side of the planet.

    I remember discovering this podcast either just as it debuted in February 2017 or shortly after and the story drew me in right away. The creator has clearly done so much work in world building and making it complex and fascinating. With each episode, it feels like you’re going deeper into a work of epic science fiction. And the great thing is even though the show is now in it’s third season, there’s still so much story to tell about the world of Oasus, and its people.

    If you enjoyed this crossover episode, subscribe to the Earth Collective, start at the beginning and be transported to a distant world where a future humanity is eking out a new life on a strange planet.

    This episode was co-written by Mike Troup and Alex C. Telander.

  • The Complete Ostium Season One (REMASTERED) – Part Three [RE-RELEASE] 1:48:53

    A re-release due to episode no longer being available in regular feeds.


    Welcome to the complete Ostium Season One (Remastered) - Part Three. I know. That's a mouthful. So let's break it up into its separate parts. The Complete Ostium Season One: That's right, we're releasing the entire season one without the chit-chat before and after the episode so new fans can gobble up the whole season much faster and quickly get caught up. Remastered: When I first started making Ostium, it was my introduction to podcasts and sound design and producing. Since then I've learned a lot, and wanted to clean up and equalize the sound so the episodes were more even and cleaner, also there were a few sound effects I wanted to fix. Part Three: I've divided this "complete" season one into three parts. Because Part One is two hours long. Part Two is an hour and 24 minutes long. Part Three is two hours and three minutes long. These parts follow the three story-arcs of the first season. Part Three consists of episodes eight through ten, as Jake and Monica travel back to the future, and to some very familiar places to Jake. Episode 8: Back to the Future Episode 9: Avalon Episode 10: A Crack in the Edge of the World, Part One All episodes were written and produced by Alex C. Telander. The part of Jake Fisher is performed by Chris Fletcher. The past of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie. Interstitial music pieces were composed by Chris Fletcher. Background music is courtesy of the incredible people at the Free Music Archive. All sound effects are courtesy of the talented people at Freesound.org. If you enjoyed this and would like more Ostium as well as to support the show, consider helping us out on Patreon for as little as $2 a month where you'll get access to many bonus mini episodes, upcoming outtakes for season 2, and special mini episodes called The Ostium Files.

    They are a local alternative punk/rock band from the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area of Pennsylvania. They’ve given me permission to play the full track of Flashbacks at the end of the credits. If you enjoy it, head to bandcamp.com to listen to their other work. I found their music long after my story was written, but it fit like a glove.

    Hey everyone, Alex C. Telander here. Just wanted to give a quick announcement that Team Ostium will be doing an “ask us anything” Q&A recording session this Sunday, so if you have any questions for Chris, Georgia, or myself, about Ostium, or the characters or the writing or anything you want to know about us, then shoot me an email at ostiumpodcast@gmail.com and I’ll be sure to pose the question and get you an answer this weekend. The recording is going to be a special Behind the Ostium we’ll be releasing on the regular feed once Season 4 is all done, as Team Ostium talks a little about our lives, what’s been going on, where things are headed, and all things Ostium. So you can look forward to that special release some time this fall. Thanks for listening.

  • Episode 30 – Fade to Black 39:26
    Jake makes some big decisions with the help of Dave to make things right in Ostium, but possibly at the cost of their own lives. And we have now, sadly, come to the end of season 3. Hope you enjoyed it. Please keep listening to the whole of this outro for lots of important Ostium-related details. Season 4 takes our intrepid friends to a very interesting place where they get up to many strange adventures. We’re going to be taking a bit of break to get it all recorded and ready for you wonder fans. The first episode of season four will drop April 7th, 2019. Now, there is a way you can get season four started sooner, and that’s by become a patron of Ostium on Patreon. For as little as $2 a month you can get access to your very own door number and special short story, as well as the ongoing Ostium Files series and outtakes. There are also many more rewards at levels, such as behind the scenes specials, access to the music and artwork of Ostium, and even videos. If we hit our first goal of having 50 patrons support Ostium, you’ll get season four started a whole month earlier, on March 3rd, 2019. If we hit our second goal of 75 patrons, season 4 will start on February 3rd. And if we somehow hit 100 patrons in the next week, season 4 will begin January 6th without any hiatus. So here’s what you need to do. First, become a patron. You can change your tier level whenever you want. Second, tell your friends, family, complete strangers about Ostium and about become a patron so everyone can get season 4 Ostium started sooner. It’s as simple as that. This episode was written and produced by Alex C. Telander. The voice of Jake is performed by Chris Fletcher. The voice of Dave is performed by Alex C. Telander. The voice of the unknown creature was performed by Arden Rachel. The music was composed by Chris Fletcher. Thank you everyone who listened or talked or has ever mentioned Ostium. You listeners are a big part of why we do this, the other smaller part is we love doing it. And don’t worry, there’s going to be many, many more seasons of Ostium coming. For anyone attending Podcon, two of us from Team Ostium will be there: Georgia, the voice of Monica, and myself. So if you see someone wearing an Ostium shirt and looking lost, chances are it’ll be me, so come on over and say hi. Don’t worry, I’ll be feeling just as shy and awkward as everyone else. I’m also going to be giving away a bunch of copies of the Ostium book, so don’t forget to mention that. I don’t care if you’re a podcast fan, a podcast creator or actor, you’re an Ostium fan and I’d be happy to give you a copy of the Ostium book and autograph it if you like. I’ll be doing another announcement or two before we get to the weekend of Podcon. But for now. This is me, Alex C. Telander, closing the book on season three and looking ahead to season four. Thank you all again, so much, for support this little idea that has become a big show that Team Ostium loves so much to make.

    Well, we did it. Actually: you guys did. Ostium has now been downloaded over 300,000 thousand times, which is just mind-blowing. So thank you to everyone who has listened, told a friend about the show, tweeted or left a review, or done anything to help Ostium. From Team Ostium to you, it means so much, and we are deeply grateful. And now here’s a special mini episode we did for International Podcast Month, called “Special Delivery.” Enjoy. This special mini episode was written and produced by Alex C. Telander. It was inspired by a conversation I was having with two people on Twitter and I swear I wrote down their Twitter handles in my notes and now they’re gone. So hopefully you remember who you are, and thanks for chatting with me and being the spark for this Ostium mini episode. The voice of Jake was performed Chris Fletcher, who also composed all the music. The voice of Monica was performed by Georgia McKenzie. The voice of the pizza delivery person was performed by Elena Fernández-Collins. For a transcript of this mini episode, and lots of other info on everything Ostium, check out ostiumpodcast.com.

  • The Complete Ostium Season One (REMASTERED) – Part Two 1:28:52
    Welcome to the complete Ostium Season One (Remastered) - Part Two. I know. That's a mouthful. So let's break it up into its separate parts. The Complete Ostium Season One: That's right, we're releasing the entire season one without the chit-chat before and after the episode so new fans can gobble up the whole season much faster and quickly get caught up. Remastered: When I first started making Ostium, it was my introduction to podcasts and sound design and producing. Since then I've learned a lot, and wanted to clean up and equalize the sound so the episodes were more even and cleaner, also there were a few sound effects I wanted to fix. Part Two: I've divided this "complete" season one into three parts. Because Part One is two hours long. Part Two is an hour and 24 minutes long. Part Three is two hours and three minutes long. These parts follow the three story-arcs of the first season. Part Two consists of episodes five through seven, as we are introduced to Monica, Jake gets to know Monica, and they have some unexpected visitors. Episode 5: A.W.O.L. Episode 6: Dialogues Episode 7: Visitors All episodes were written and produced by Alex C. Telander. The part of Jake Fisher is performed by Chris Fletcher. The past of Monica is performed by Georgia Mckenzie. Interstitial music pieces were composed by Chris Fletcher. Background music is courtesy of the incredible people at the Free Music Archive. All sound effects are courtesy of the talented people at Freesound.org.

  • The Complete EMU (Part Two) 43:55
    Welcome to the Complete EMU, Part Two. This second part includes episodes seven through eleven that were released to our patrons during the second season of Ostium. As I said in my introduction to Part One, I’m releasing the complete EMU because Dave will become a focal character in Season 3 of Ostium and I want everyone to be caught up on the whole story. Enjoy the continuing tales of Dave, as he travels through Ostium, and brings his story to its conclusion. These episodes were written, produced, and voiced by Alex C. Telander. Guest voice actors in these episodes were Kurt Smith in EMU installment 9, and Paul Bae in EMU installment 10. If you like Ostium, please consider supporting our on Patreon for as little as two dollars a month, where you’ll get access to mini episodes including The Ostium Files. As a supporter you’ll get your very own special door, and, eventually, your very own Ostium File. If you would like to just make a one-time donation, you can also do so through our website. And if you haven’t already, please gives us a rating and review on iTunes, as this makes Ostium more visible to new listeners, and the more listeners and support we get, the longer Ostium will run. Ostium Season 3 will return with Episode 21 on September 2nd. Thank you.

  • The Complete EMU (Part One) 1:23:30
    Welcome to the Complete Enigmatic Mysteries of the Unknown, or EMU, as it’s amusingly known. Part One. This first part includes the first six mini episodes that were originally released to patrons during season one, and then released to everyone else during the hiatus between seasons one and two. The reason I’ve chosen to re-release these in two long comprehensive episodes is because Dave, the creator and host of EMU, becomes an important character in season 3 of Ostium, so I want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to be completely caught up with the whole story. Now, since I’m re-releasing these episodes, I could easily clean-up and remaster them for sound quality, but I’m choosing to keep them as they are. Dave is not an audio producer, he’s just a guy who wanted to make a show about some thoughts and ideas he had. I feel the - at times - inferior audio quality adds more to his character. So, sit back - if you’re sitting - and if you’ve never experienced Enigmatic Mysteries of the Unknown before, prepare to be . . . englightened . . . These episodes were written, produced, and voiced by Alex C. Telander. If you like Ostium, please consider supporting us on Patreon for as little as two dollars a month, where you’ll get access to mini episodes including The Ostium Files. As a supporter you’ll get your very own special door, and, eventually, your very own Ostium File.

  • Episode 20 – Once More with Feeling 1:07:52
    Jake doesn't know what's happened, where he is, or what this is all for. And then he does recognize himself, and realizes this is where everything comes to a climax. This is the second wave of the storm, much worse than the first.  Written and produced by Alex C. Telander Jake played by Chris Fletcher. Monica played by Georgia Mckenzie. Music composed by Chris Fletcher.  Sounds effects are courtesy of the incredible people at Freesound.org. For a transcript of this episode, please visit our website. Reviews are the lifeblood of podcasts. Reviews are one way people discover new podcasts. Reviews are how people learn what a podcast is about, what they might like about the podcast. Five-star reviews get podcasts highlighted and featured and mentioned on podcast apps. So you can show your love for Ostium by supporting us on Patreon, or you could write us a five-star review on iTunes or whatever podcast app you use. This is a really big deal for Ostium, so much so that we’re doing a special giveaway for it. What’s up for grabs? Well, I’m glad you asked. We’re giving away a paperback copy of the Ostium book: Population Zero. But what’s even more special about it is it’s signed by Team Ostium. You’ve got autographs from Chris Fletcher, the voice of Jake; Georgia Mckenzie, the voice of Monica; Sara Warren, our incredible artist; and Alex C. Telander, who writes all the episodes and is writing these words right now. Yeah. I know. Pretty special, huh? This giveaway will run from the release of Episode 18 through the release of Episode 20 up to just before midnight Pacific Time on Saturday, June 2nd. So two weeks after Season 2 is complete. What do you need to do to be entered? Just leave us a review on iTunes or wherever you listen to your podcasts. Shoot an email to ostiumpodcast@gmail.com to let us know and you’re entered. A winner will be randomly drawn and announced on Sunday, June 3rd and the book will be mailed to that person. Simple as that. So . . . Time to get reviewing! And if you need some inspiration, here are a few recent entries: From Rumorian: I’m listening to a lot of audiodramas and this is one of my favorites. The premise is fascinating and every episode is fun to listen to. Apparently they have already planned out the whole series and I can’t wait to find out where it’s all heading. And from Tug35919: I just started listening to Ostium, and I’m taken by the plot so far. I’m really excited to find out where the story will go. Much more catching up to do! This week’s podcast recommendation is The Box: When Addison Gilmore found the old lockbox of journals filled with entries about bizarre and terrifying events, she thought she'd stumbled upon a unique mass participation fiction project. But as she shares those stories and digs into their contents, it becomes increasingly clear that these journals are more than they seem... and she's in over her head. The Box is just a wonderful podcast that draws the reader in right from the start with its fascinating protagonist, and keeps them hooked as the interesting and complex world is revealed. Thirty-one episodes have been released and while the show has been on hiatus for some time, I recently heard the show will be coming back eventually, so get caught up now! And . . . That’s a wrap for season two. A huge thank you to all our listeners who’ve kept listening since season one, and an equally sized thank you to our new listeners. We sadly did not reach any of our support goals, but our hiatus will be much shorter this time, with season 3 beginning on September 2nd. The next two seasons will be a little different than the first two as we follow the story arc of our characters, but this is an ongoing story and sometimes it won’t be always clear why something is happening, but remember: everything in Ostium happens for a reason. You just have to be patient. And then I’ve got some really big surprises for season five that I’ve hinted at a few times on social media. So be sure to follow us on Twitter with the handle...

The past? - who traveled through the doors of Ostium to different places in time and space to learn and educate and record their experiences. Perhaps these recordings are still in existence . . . Welcome to . . . The Ostium Files. To the patron who entered through Door #144, this is your story. Written and produced by Alex C. Telander Performed by Justy Gee.

This week's podcast recommendation is Lucyd: Lucyd is a supernatural drama, following a young woman dealing with unusual and frightening events surrounding her mysterious nightmares, and what follows her into the waking world. Set in Cork, Ireland, and told through the lens of 'found-footage'-style audio recordings, both knowingly made by the characters and recorded without their knowledge, LUCYD explores elements of occult horror and psychological drama, as well as humor, romance, and dreams. A wonderful discovery. Irish accents. High quality recording. And some cool Irish mythology. This show is fun and interesting and definitely addicting. So . . . Join us . . . Thank you so much for listening and see in you in two weeks for the season 2 finale: Episode 20: Once More with Feeling.

Today’s podcast recommendation is The Earth Collective: The Earth Collective is a story of Mankind's survival on Oasus, a distant planet, far from earth. They live in rolling cities to stay bathed in constant sunlight, running from The Dark, a malicious entity that resides on the dark-side of the planet. The world-building in this podcast is simply magnificent. I felt like I was both watching a great science fiction movie series, and reading an epic science fiction book series. The world is so immense and complex and I’m always waiting for the next episode to learn more about this unique world. Thanks for listening and all your support, and join us in two weeks for Episode 18: People in Glass Houses.

I’m not a huge fan of comedic podcasts because I like more stories serious and gripping, but Victoriocity manages to do both incredibly well. There’s the non-stop dry British humor that has me constantly laughing out loud, along with the cool steampunkish world of this alternate London where technology has gone in some very interesting directions. Plus you get to hear from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. What’s not to like? Finally, thanks for listening. Without you, there wouldn’t be any point in doing this podcast.

Welcome to . . . The Ostium Files. To the patron who entered through Door #25, this is your story. Written and produced by Alex C. Telander Performed by Ethan Connor Ireland Music composed by Chris Fletcher To get access to the Ostium Files and many other mini episodes and bonus content, support the Ostium Podcast via Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/ostiumpodcast) or through the Ostium website via Paypal (https://ostiumpodcast.com/support/) and choose your support door wisely.
