Tin Man

Part Wizard of Oz, part Dante's Inferno, part absurdist radio theater, and part anti-corporate musical, this 20-episode podcast follows the Tin Man (but not necessarily the one you're thinking of) on a bizarre and venturesome journey through landscapes familiar and unknown.

Part Wizard of Oz, part Dante's Inferno, part absurdist radio theater, and part anti-corporate musical, this 20-episode podcast follows the Tin Man (but not necessarily the one you're thinking of) on a bizarre and venturesome journey through landscapes familiar and unknown.

Along the way, the Tin Man meets a cast of memorable characters while tracking down a few missing body parts and finding his way to Heaven. And then to Hell. And then to Disneyland.

In episode one (featured in the player above), we meet an untimely doom -- and a curious scarecrow. To hear further episodes, check out the Extras section below.

Matt Sahr

Matt Sahr lives in Vietnam, where he is a middle man. He spent 15 years dabbling in theatre. The only time he actually made any money, he was a stage manager with Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey Circus. But then, just before the dawn of the new millenium, he got fired. In 2000, Matt worked for an Internet bubble company, Teligent, as it spiraled into a smouldering 2.1 million dollar train wreck. Then he got another damn degree, and taught a few college classes. Then he became a maintenance man. He spent 2004 and 2005 fixing garage doors, mopping the floor, etc, at a Storage USA in Baltimore. Then he moved to Korea. Then he moved to Vietnam.
