A podcast featuring audio drama, dark comedy, & other unexpected vignettes from Corvallis & beyond.
This is episode 6 of The Spirit of the Forest, an audio drama / dark comedy created by Corvallis resident Dan Crall. The program blends fiction and reality and reflects primarily upon the sadness, absurdity, and normalcy of modern life.

This episode features a walk in the woods with a schoolmaster trying to resolve a bullying and intimidation problem involving pubes, a sad tale of a wandering man who had to kill his horse that morning, a walk on a dried up lake (playa) in the Alvord Desert with a local artist and great thinker of our time, and the story of someone whose life was ruined by the D.A.R.E. drug awareness program in his junior high years.

Featuring the music of Yen Pox, Raison d'etre, as well as the acting talent of Dan Crall, John Knight, Matt Burris, John Crall, John Simpkins, and an unknown wanderer, this episode was recorded in mid February 2015 in Corvallis, and in the rural desert of Harney County Oregon.
