Josie's Lonely Hearts Club

Good Story Guild, Maximilian Clark, Rachel Music

Josie’s Lonely Hearts Club is a semi-scripted audio drama set in the studio of New Mexico’s 3rd-best romantic advice call-in show.  On-air, listeners eavesdrop as Josie squares off against top improvisers and is only occasionally helped by her puckish engineer Frank. Off-air, witness her journey from melancholy Joanne Holtzinger to nationally syndicated sensation Josie Heller. What results is an often hilarious and surprisingly human show exploring the risks we idiots take every time we fall in or out of love.   Josie’s Lonely Hearts Club was created by Maximilian Clark (Superhuman Public Radio)  and Rachel Music. Our story editor is Aliza Brugger. This podcast is brought to you by the Good Story Guild (https://goodstoryguild.co/) . Keep track of us at goodstoryguild.co and stay cozy, cuties.  299415 Hosted by Ausha. See ausha.co/privacy-policy for more information.

    Josie Presents: Divorce Ranch

    Before a whirlwind vacation, Joanne helps Frank pick something for the cuties to listen to...


    Now out from the Good Story Guild: Divorce Ranch! Season one is now complete.


    June 1949. Heiress Mitzi Ballantyne has gone missing during her "Reno-vation" at the Sidewinder Resort. Detective Francis O'Connell, a Bible-toting bloodhound, would rather be at his Ma's sickbed. Instead, he steps off the train and into a den of liberated ex-wives who test his every nerve. Crooked cops, runaways, and divorcees collide in a female-forward, "west-of-center" take on the classic noir.


    After the pilot, pick up this six-part mystery wherever you listen to your podcasts!

    After a heaping helping of heartache, resident tough cookie Josie gives us a peak of that gooey, nougaty center. Joanne drops a few truths of her own.

If time allows, we might even hear from a return caller...
