Welcome, friends, to Extra Extra Radio, with me, Michael, your host, guide, and favourite negative medical test result. This season, we’re exploring different aspects of life in The City and meeting some of the people who make it one of the world’s most unique urban environments.
I’m speaking to you from the city’s major health care institution, The Central Hospital Centre for Hospitalization. Here, a top-notch team of remarkably good looking medical professionals keep patients happy, healthy and topped up with their full 10 pints of blood, or cocktail of choice. Roaming the wards via a fleet of miniature microphone drones, this episode gives you an intimate view of everyday miracles, tragedies and medical mysteries.
Meet the flirtatious Doctor Sponge and Nurse Trebuchet. Griffin is getting a personality bypass, administered by Italian doctors from Milwaukee and Reykjavik. And we’re just in time for the 64th Annual Hospital Festival, with commentators Pete Peterspete, alongside the enchanting Jacques Amygdala and Angie Clavicle.
The show is written and performed by Dan Fox and Michael Portnoy in close collaboration with Loes Verstappen who selected the music, and Monte Masi. Voice acting by Dan Fox, Michael Portnoy, Monique Moses, Johnny Vivash and Loveday Smith. Drawings by Fiona Lutjenhuis.
