Mr. Ron of the Mister Ron’s Basement podcast, is one of most experienced podcasters in all of podcasting. He has produced more than 700 shows in more than two years! His is a daily podcast of funny stuff from the public domain. Not much of it has been SFF audio related, but there is an H.G. Wells story from way back in his archives. Here’s how Mr. Ron describes his contribution to our H.G. Wells Month…
Episode #175 of Mister Ron’s Basement is H. G. Wells’ 1899 story, The Man Who Could Work Miracles, which Wells himself rewrote as a screenplay for the wonderful 1936 Movie of the same name starring Roland Young. The musical intro and outro is also special – selections from a 1912 recording of ‘I’m The Guy’ penned by legendary cartoonist Rube Goldberg.
