*The podcast production house Neon Hum has partnered up with Sony Music Entertainment for a brand new podcast called “Dirt Cheap.”
The show takes on a modern look of the 1940s novel “Murder in the Glass Room” by Edwin Rolfe and Lester Fuller.
Featured on the podcast is comics publisher Amanda Meadows and her husband Geoffery Golden. The duo spends time reading the novel out loud and taking a deep dive into the plot with their listeners.
“There is a murder. It really does literally happen in the glass room. It’s super funny when we finally discover the murder. A small spoiler is that the protagonist, Phil is the number one protagonist for his wife’s murder,” says Meadows.
Bizarre, noir and unique are words that describe the book. However, the podcast is all of that plus more. Although the novel is nearly 80 years old, the couple has no issues sparking the conversation. Meadows says this is partially because the novel is relatable to current times.
“In 1945, half of the country were fascists and half of them were socialists and we’re still there,” reminds Amanda.” History doesn’t necessarily repeat but it rhymes right?” .
Listeners can find ‘Dirt Cheap’ on all major podcast platforms like Apple Podcasts and Spotify. Take a listen below.
