We’ve traveled around the world recording sounds and writing radio stories set in: Brazil, the Amazon, Bali, Java, Sumatra, Mexico, India, Morocco, Costa Rica, Belize, and so on.
ZBS audio dramas have aired on the BBC, CBC Canada, ABC Australia, Armed Forces Radio, and National Public Radio. Ruby, the Adventures of a Galactic Gumshoe, has aired on over 500 stations in the U.S.
These stories are for fans of adventure radio drama, sci fi radio, radio mysteries, detective radio drama, and even 3D horror. ZBS has written and produced over 170 hours of original radio dramas.
Meatball Fulton, the creator of Jack, Ruby, The Android Sisters, and many others, was asked by "Hear Now: The Audio Fiction & Arts Festival," to put together a retrospective for the festival. He selected scenes from his favorite stories, starting with "The Fourth Tower of Inverness," and on through the decades. In fact, he created quite a lavish production, weaving in his comments along with Tim Clark's music. It's also a nice sampler of our stories, especially for those who are not familiar with our productions. And it's Free! - Get ZBS Retrospective for free

The Fourth Tower of Inverness on CDs
The Fourth Tower has been reissued on CDs. We wanted to honor the wonderful work Robert Lorick has done, over all these years, playing our favorite cosmic adventurer, Jack Flanders! The CDs will make a swell gift. It is truly a classic. You’ll find it here.
Many of you are familiar with our friend Mr. Fritz, a microphone that can hear how we hear; above, below, and all around. Over the years, Fulton has recorded a lot of sounds & stories with Fritz, and he wants to share them with you. When you listen with headphones, or earbuds, it really is a 3D sound experience.
Every Friday, Fulton has a chat with his friend Mr. Fritz, while he plays some of the things they've recorded together. It's a Fulton & Fritz show, made just for you.
