The Questors From Effpiem, Episode 2 (Part 1): The House of the Sophia Pulchra

At last, “The Questors from Effpiem” continues!  Two moves in the same month and a new occupation kept this episode from debuting in August, but the Deadpan Ambassador will not be deterred from finishing what she started!

This episode runs so long (17:36) that it had to be split up over two episodes of the Deadpan Podcast. The first part is in Jack Mangan’s Deadpan #106: Three Stories. Look for the conclusion of Episode 2 in an upcoming episode of the Deadpan.  Jack cut it at the perfect moment, too.  The upshot of his editing is that I just cliffhangered my listeners for the first time, and I didn’t even do it intentionally! Cool! Thank you, Jack!

About This Episode

Having left their original campsite behind, the questing party stops for the night at the home of Andrea and Hugh, a pair of mated demons known as the Sophia Pulchra.  Over dinner, the guests learn that the two demons and their apprentices act as caretakers and catalogers of beauty and wisdom.  During the night, John Boze hears a faint, pulsating humming coming from somewhere in the house, and is seized by a sudden, mysterious surge of curiosity…
