Listening to the Red Panda Adventures is quickly becoming something of a ritual. While I'm tinkering with some part of the blog, taking in one of the Panda's shows makes for an entertaining and appropriate backdrop.
The Red Panda Adventures are described on the Decoder Ring Theater website as being "in the tradition of the classic programs of Radio's Golden Age". The titular character and his sassy sidekick The Flying Squirrel fight crime and solve mysteries in 1930's Toronto. As I write this, there are 79 episodes posted, dating back to 2005 each running about 25 to 30 minutes.
I've never heard the Shadow or Green Hornet radio programs, but I don't think it's necessary to have done so to issue a "warning" of sorts that that the Panda/Squirrel stories are lighter in tone.
The Panda's adventures are also available in book form, one of which is making its way to the TSOG cave as we...huh...blog.
Should make for nice cottage reading. :-) Click on the cover for a description.
