Intergalactic Nemesis Redux! is a true Austin original. It’s a revival of The Intergalactic Nemesis and Return of the Intergalactic Nemesis, two episodic radio serials with live sound effects performed before a live audience in the spirit of 1940s radio broadcast. Created by Austin’s premiere producer of original work, The Intergalactic Nemesis and its sequel Return of the Intergalactic Nemesis ran for five weeks at Gallery Lombardi and then aired on three consecutive Sundays, July 21, 28 and August 4 at 11 AM as part of KUT Radio’s “Best of Public Radio” series.

The Story
Molly Sloan is a gritty reporter with a Pulitzer Prize under her belt. Timmy Mendez is her earnest and intrepid research assistant. Ben Wilcott is the man from the future, come back in time to the year 1933 to convince Molly and Timmy that they must help him save Earth from the invading forces of a sludge-based life-form from the planet Zygon. Follow their chilling, yet heartwarming, adventures in The Intergalactic Nemesis as they battle to save two galaxies from eminent destruction. When, in Return of the Intergalactic Nemesis, Molly’s former fiance Dr. Lawrence Webster, world-renowned interspacio-temporal quantum physicist, is asked by Molly’s father to investigate her mysterious disappearance, it turns out the fate of the entire universe is at stake!

“Foley artists Etta Sander and Hilary Thomas bang, scratch, slam, switch, scrunch, and plunge their way through the retro-futuristic world of ace reporter Molly Sloan, sidekick Timmy Mendez, and lots of weird humans and weirder outer-space creatures. … [Intergalactic Nemesis Redux! is] as authentic as it is humorous.”
—Robi Polgar, The Austin Chronicle, June 20, 2002
