The Crew

Our writing and production team for Season 1 met while at graduate school at UC Riverside. Between classes and tacos at the school pub, Maria Fernanda Vidaurrazaga approached JT Lachausse with an idea for a narrative podcast. With JT on board, the two started planning the season and brought Ann Hughes on as the team's producer. Since then, new team members have joined and brought their incredible talents to the podcast!

As the team has grown and changed, we have welcomed Rye Dorsey, Daniel Sotelo, Sebastian Sotelo, and Miles Crenwelge for season 2!

For​ an audio drama featuring the Messenger God of Sound, music is incredibly important, that's why we found ourselves a great composer. Samuel Kinsella is the man behind the music. However, we've also been lucky enough to collaborate with many other amazing musicians like Gemyni, The Bins, and Peachface.

Samuel Kinsella



Samuel Kinsella is the mastermind composer behind the RADIO: Outcast's theme music and most of the music you hear throughout the show. Samuel has composed for other audio dramas as well as creating his own music. You can listen to the show's score on YouTube or listen to Samuel's music in the player below.


Gemyni is a singer-songwriter and producer born and raised in Colorado. Since recording her first self-written song at age 12, creating music has been her passion. She released her first single independently at the age of 17, titled 'Damned Love' under the name 'Gemini Rose'. Since then, she has honed her skills and released 8 more singles and 3 mini albums to create a total of 20 independently released songs.

The Bins

From rocks to coins to comic cards, Clark Barclay was a kid obsessed with collecting. Today, his grown-up collecting fixation lives in the secondhand bins. Using rummaged found sounds, percussion instruments from all over the world, and strictly dollar bin records, The Bins tediously arranges sonic fragments into a mosaic; capturing an array of genres, cultures, and histories.
