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!
