The Midnight Gospel
Clancy Gilroy has a spacecast (a podcast for people in space) and he interviews the people he meets on the strange planets. Some of the planets are post-apocalyptic and on the brink of destruction; Clancy is running around fighting off monsters while trying to interview an alien for his spacecast. It’s a lot of fun.
The show is based on real conversations that Duncan Trussell has had on his podcast, The Duncan Trussell Family Hour Podcast. They use the podcast audio and make the guest an alien Clancy has visited on a planet in the simulator.
Clancy talks to his spacecast guests about different things through out the episodes, including subjects such as drug policy and psychedelics; as you might expect from Duncan Trussell.
Check out the trailer, released 6th April 2020.
As mentioned earlier, all the spacecast guests are real guests from The Duncan Trussell Family Hour Podcast. The guests over the 8 episodes are:
Drew Pinsky, Anne Lamott and Raghu Markus, Damien Echols, Trudy Goodman, Jason Louv, David Nichtern, Caitlin Doughty and Deneen Fendig.
Pendleton Ward is the creator of Adventure Time and head about The Duncan Trussell family Hour Podcast through a friend. He was a big fan and said Duncan was “a lot of fun.” After stepping down as the show runner for Adventure Time, Pendleton contacted Duncan about turning the podcast in to an animation.
The Midnight Gospel is the first cartoon Pendleton has created since Adventure Time.
