Jason Douglas Louie

J. D. Louie is an avid reader who grew up to be an avid writer. He has written articles for Listverse.com and he is a former cartoonist for The Hilltop newspaper. For the theater world he has written for and performed with The Howard Players and Howards University’s The TEAM comedy troupe. He has appeared in several student films, his first being A Dangerous Business which won The Paul Roberson Award for best original screenplay. Louie has written short stories, short films, and recently a five act stage play entitled The Unmasqued Man. He is a semi-retired spoken word artist as well. Louie does not consider himself a writer but a storyteller, seeing the former as a means to an end. This has led him to pursue and explore the many different mediums of storytelling. It is this love of stories (and his interest in old radio dramas like The Shadow) that has brought him to Aural Stage Studios and the world of audio drama. A lifelong mythology buff, he will always have a soft spot for oral storytelling, mythology’s original medium. Louie’s primary focus at this time, however, is still furthering his literary career and he is currently in the process of getting his novel, Flight of Fancy published.

Matthew J Boudreau

As a writer, Matt specializes in sci-fi, horror and absurdism, though he’s willing to write in whatever genre best fits a story.  Matthew believes that good storytelling transcends genres and is a blend of good writing, skillful acting and a really solid production crew more than the trappings and formulaic nonsense associated with many commercial productions.  

Matt is a submission editor for ink&coda, an online journal that publishes works of fiction, nonfiction and instrumental music across numerous different genres. He is also a contributing submissions editor for Radio Drama Revival, a weekly podcast showcasing the diversity and vitality of modern audio drama.
