Welcome to Muckey Landing

Muckey Landing: population 76 and a half. It’s an odd little backwater in a lower, slower corner of the tiny state of Delaware, mostly known for being not too far from someplace you’d rather be. If by some chance you have car trouble and find yourself here — that’s how most folks find Muckey Landing, unless they were born here — be sure to stop by the Muckey Landing Market, Diner and Hardware Emporium at the corner of St. Jones and Broad, and say hi to Virgil Slatter and Harmon Truesdale. They own the place. If it’s Tuesday, try Harmon’s bologna special.

Between the Foul Odor Emergency Warnings from the chicken nugget plant, a dog that’s part chihuahua, part coon hound and smarter than both Harmon and Virgil put together, and a townful of strange locals and stranger situations, Muckey Landing is a little… off. And through it all, Harmon can’t figure out why he can never get a second date, and Virgil can’t figure out how Harmon ever gets a first one.

Muckey Landing is a podcast from Mucked Up Productions. Watch this space — it’s gonna be doing some funny shit.

New Episode and a Press Page

I’ve been a bit remiss in updating our website, but finally got with it today. We’ve got a new episode, “Blame It On the Swedes,” posted, featuring Virgil, Harmon and Mitch Pohunk, so yes, somebody besides just Virgil and Harmon! Go to the Episodes and Extras page to listen, and please leave comments!

I polled our cast members recently, and several of them are willing to come in individually to record, which I’ll schedule as soon as I can track down some Lysol to spray down the pop filters on the mics without having to pay a king’s ransom for it. (Can someone please explain how $36 for one can of Lysol is NOT price-gouging?) I’ve also put together a press kit page with a link to Craig Horleman’s terrific State News article from April, the text from the press release I’m getting ready to send out tomorrow, contact info, and downloadable photos. In that vein, to my actors — if you come in for a recording session and don’t see me with my phone in my hand taking pictures of you, shame me mercilessly! Every recording session I get so wrapped up in hearing the script come to life that I forget to take pics, and I really want to do that!

So yes, I mentioned a press release above — we’re going to try to cast our net a little wider and see if we get any nibbles. I’ll keep you posted.

Muckey Landing in the Age of Coronavirus

So we were able to get out a trailer and 2 full episodes of our brand-new, first-ever Muckey Landing podcast that I spent 3 years writing just before COVID-19 shut down the whole country. That means we can’t bring in our cast to continue recording the 6 full-length episodes that we have waiting to be birthed. However, we’re soldiering on in spite of it all, and we’re seeing some real positive stuff that we truly didn’t expect. First off, Mike, Bruce and I decided last weekend that we’ve already exposed each other to whatever germs and shit we all have, since we live in each others pockets all the time anyway, so why not record a mini-episode to tide us over in the meantime? Secondly, Craig Horleman of the Delaware State News wrote a FANTASTIC article about us that just came out today. Enjoy both below.
