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 Plans, New Episode!

Just after we launched the first two episodes of Muckey Landing last spring, the state of Delaware shut down because of the pandemic. That made it impossible to bring our actors together for the next episodes we’d planned. To keep the show going in challenging circumstances, we postponed those full-length episodes and wrote shorter bonus episodes to tide us over, using fewer actors per scene and recording in individual socially-distanced booths instead of using the large multi-person “recording tent” we started out with. Little did we know that 8 months later, we’d still be coping with the pandemic well into the foreseeable future!

Recently, we made the decision to rearrange and rewrite our full-length episodes so we could produce them in a “pandemically-responsible” way, and Harmon’s Dilemma is the first. It was actually supposed to be the fourth full-length episode of Muckey Landing; it’s now the third, and we’re very happy with how it turned out! Check out the preview below, or go straight to our Episodes + Extras page to listen to the entire episode, or fire up your favorite podcatcher and listen to it there. You might want to go back and give Virgil Gets a Dog and The Late, Late Harmon Truesdale another listen to refresh your memory!

For those of you who were wondering how the Swine Dinner mentioned in The Late, Late Harmon Truesdale turned out, remember that Muckey Landing is under the same restrictions as the rest of Delaware. Virgil and Harmon will attend the Swine Dinner as soon as restrictions are lifted and the dinner is rescheduled. In the meantime, enjoy Harmon’s Dilemma!

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.
