Friends, do you enjoy live comedy? Are you in Seattle? Then I have a treat for you!
Friday and Saturday, February 21 and 22, at West of Lenin in Fremont! Enjoy sketches written by SV’s own AAl and Amanda (as well as some other talented people). Tickets are $10. Click here to get them, and we hope to see you there!
I just wrote a mushy “thank you from us” to listeners of our other podcast,Post Atomic Horror. And I realized I should probably say something similar on behalf of Sarcastic Voyage.
Here’s the thing: we made some huge changes this year. Our appearance at ECCC made us realize that prepared material goes over much better with an audience than our attempts to adlib. And besides, you’ve heard “two nerds talking” shows a million times. We all have. So this year we made the decision to take our show in a new direction.
We lost a lot of listeners by doing this. What we produced before was a show that the audience felt engaged in — we regularly answered their mail, and quite often we’d just bring the listeners on the show to speak for themselves. What we make now is definitely a more passive listening experience, which is the exact opposite of what drew people to SV in the first place. We know that.
But we’re writers. And we live in a time in which we can actually write and produce anything we can think of and throw it out there for an audience. We lost a lot of listeners this year, but we held on to some. These people, we can only assume, support the show’s current direction. And we cannot thank you enough for this.
More changes are coming in the forthcoming year: most notably, I’m working to get some of our sketches onstage for an actual live audience. Maybe this will be a disaster, or maybe it’ll be the Next Big Thing for the show. Whatever happens though, we will continue to obey my creative mantra for this thing: ever forward.
If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re still listening to SV. And we thank you for that. 2013 was a year of transition for us. But then, what year isn’t?
For the fifth year in a row, the Sarcastic Voyage and Post Atomic Horror podcasts are planning a substantial presence at the Emerald City Comicon in Seattle. Efforts like this cost money (booking venues, printing business cards, burning giveaway CDs, et. al), and our listeners have shown a considerable generosity in the past in helping us make this all happen.
And so, here we are once again, extending our hat (we only have the one hat) and asking for a few bucks to help us out.

Sarcastic Voyage is a monthly sketch comedy podcast, co-hosted by Ron “AAlgar” Watt and Matt Rowbotham. We like to think that our comedy is accessible to most English-speaking adults, though we do tend to skew a bit toward the nerd end of the spectrum, if we’re being entirely honest about it. While we do have a few running jokes and recurring characters, you should be able to enjoy any given episode of SV, so check out the most recent offering for a sample!
Please note that the archives on this site only go back to about mid-2012. This was the point at which SV transitioned from the typical “two guys talking” show into the format it’s in now. If you dig a little, you can find and download the first 140 or so episodes of the show, but be advised that it’ll be a very different show than the one we’re currently producing.
