Hey Lattaphiles!  Underworld Amusements Variety Hour is back with a live audio performance of  the southern gothic masterpiece Flannery O’Connor’s “Good Country People”.

Ida Slaughter performs the role of  busybody Mrs. Hopewell.

Erin Cassavaugh, who you all know from her Down to the Crossroads segment on 9sense Podcast, has taken on the roles of both Mrs. Freeman and Mrs. Hopewell’s daughter one-legged Joy/Hulga.

Kevin I. Slaughter is the narrator and mastermind of this project.

I’m pretty much playing myself in the role of the Bible Salesman, Manly Pointer (entendre implied, natch.)

It’s a great story and it was a hell of a lot of fun to do.

About Josh Latta

Mr Josh Latta was born in 1853 to a family of tamed Pleistocenes. he was raised as a small child, entering into adulthood on the eve of his 7th birthday as was the tradition of the day. in 1867 he undertook a course in multi-reptile wrestling ending his career as 'croc-tussler' after an unfortunate shallow-river related accident cut short the life of a young crocodile. moving to rural Sheboigan in the fall of 1872, he made a good living raising fancy roosters and painting murals across the town depicting the various lascivious secrets of the townsfolk. driven out of town in the spring of 1873 he found his way to Utah where he was Flaneur in Residence at the Foundation of Gentlemen and Cultured Guinea Pigs (now the Foundation of Water Fowl and Cultured Guinea Pigs) until a scandal involving twin milkmaids and a churn of cream called for his resignation. Latta entered into the history books in 1899 for his lifesize construction of Monument Valley in matches.
