From the Electric Mouth

From the Electric Mouth is ThEM’s monthly reading series of AI-generated scripts, overseen by Molly Cohen and Justin Evans.



Each month, we feed our AI’s neural net a sumptuous feast of writing that’s thematically related to that month’s audio drama release and pray the AI regurgitates an absurdist masterpiece.

We assemble production teams from ThEM’s members to tackle the script with little to no preparation and live stream the readings in the hopes of achieving the highest histrionics.

Cross of Crying Dogs

Cross of Crying Dogs is a Dadaist manifesto, a call to (in)action from an exasperated population forcing us to ask, "How many crosses is too many crosses to bear? And who’s cross am I really carrying?" The answers don't matter though, cause all of us'll be buried in the rubble of the crosses we failed to bear soon enough - at least that's what these crying dogs are saying.

No One at the Door

Sometimes, no one is nobody, but in this case, No One is someone and they’re knocking at the door. It doesn’t matter that you’re in the shower or munching on chips and dip; if No One’s knocking at the door and you don’t answer, No One’ll never go away. Or, if they do, No One might just have to take you with them.
