No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that the Earth was being scrutinised and studied from across the gulf of space. With infinite complacency, humanity went about its little affairs, serene in its assurance of its empire over matter. It is possible that the micro-organisms we watch under a microscope, do the same. Few people gave thought to the idea of life on other planets, and none imagined that it could be so vastly superior in intellect to ourselves. ...
 
Extraterrestrial invasion, the earth taken over by omniscient intelligences from Mars, the whole of humanity under siege and a nameless narrator who seems to be the lone survivor of the complete devastation of human civilization – scenes from a Hollywood sci-fi blockbuster? Far from it! The War of the Worlds by HG Wells was written more than a century ago and went on to become an iconic work in the science fiction genre, spawning a whole new genre of literature featuring alien invaders. It w ...

Hey! What a year! WHAT A YEAR. It's nearly over, but there's still time to say thanks to all of you for listening to the podcast over 2021. The final chapters are well underway and I can't wait to share them with you HOPEFULLY out before the first LIVE SHOWS! Come see me at Leciester Comedy Festival: https://comedy-festival.co.uk/event/edy-hursts-c…
 
A little update about the next few chapters of the narration, with a delay from the usual regularity to make sure that we end it just as well, if not better than we've started and carried on this whole dang thing.द्वारा Edy Hurst
 
In this presentation of for “War of the Worlds Week” we’re sharing this frightfully eerie audio drama strongly inspire by the 1938 broadcast of The Mercury Theatre On The Air’s “The War of the Worlds”. From WUNH rain in Peoria, Illinois, it’s the 1921 audio drama – “The Peoria Plague”!द्वारा NEOZAZ.com
 
What do you recon you could do in 15 days? Bring all your mates from Mars, take over the earth and accidentally plant some red weeds? The narrator is leaving the house where he's hunkered down, and checks out the local wildlife. Will he successfully eat a dog? Will the dogs successfully eat him? I doubt it, there's another 4 chapters. Plus, a deep …
 
If there's one thing from Victorian Science that's aged about as well as a puddle of milk in a rain coat pocket, it's the theory of eugenics. We've talked a bit at the very start of the book about how much these ideas have been involved in H.G. Wells' writing, but to do it a little more justice, the fabulous Subhadra Das zoomed in to chat a little …
 
With the curate gone, and only the narrator home, what's the first thing he does? Drink dirty drain water and think about eating a dog? When the cat's away! This chapter we're joined by Edinburgh Comedy Award Nominated and telly bothering double act The Delightful Sausage. Amy Gledhill & Chris Cantrill are a hilarious grotty duo that you might have…
 
In what's been the biggest spoiler of a chapter title, and there's been a good few so far (I'm looking at you, destruction of Weybridge & Shepperton), we finally say good bye to our favourite frenemy, the Curate. We've laughed, we've cried, and now it's time to die. But how will it happen? At the hands of the narrator? Plus we've got a Greek-myth i…
 
We're taking an intermission from the story main this episode, but fear not! Banish fear, like an exorcised ghost or a used tissue, into the bin of courage. For whilst we don't have a chapter, we've got two very special songs. The first is an ode to carrots, as keen eyed listeners may have seen on Edy's Twitter, Instagram or Facebook And second is …
 
In what must be the least relatable part of the book for our entire generation, we find the Narrator and the Curate still stuck unable to leave the house. A sort of lockdown I guess, only it's Martians, and I don't want to cast judgement, but I've not seen a single mask or hand sanitiser in sight. It's an Edy only episode! We've got a song about pe…
 
Well, they're still stuck in the worst house share either of them have experienced, but don't worry, at least they've got a peephole to steal a glance out of. And what do they see? Well there's only one way to find out (excluding reading the book and all the other adaptations). This week we're joined by Graham and Ali from the British History podca…
 
We're back! Book 2, Earth under Martians. Earth (by which in the book we mean the 75 mile radius of London) is well and truly knackered under the Martians. Hampton Court? Barely any visitors. Big Ben? Forget it. London Eye? Not created yet, but if it was, it'd also be knackered. We return to find the narrator still knocking around with that fair we…
 
We're back! Tell a friend! Tell an enemy! Tell an stranger! Set you calendar for Wednesday 28th July, where chapter one is going to be dropping! Follow Edy Hurst & The Podcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook Don't forget to Like, Share and Subscribe!द्वारा Edy Hurst
 
The Final of Book One is nigh! And let's go out of the half way point with a half way bang. Chapter 17 of The War of the Worlds sees us with the Narrator's Brother and the Ephinstone's at the end of the Country, in a desperate escape from an England invaded by Martians. We've got the ironclad Thunderchild, with it's sophisticated strategy of rammin…
 
As the Martians are going, quite frankly, feral, across the South West of England towards London, we continue with the account of the Narrator's Brother (still no name) and his escape from London. We also take a look at revolvers and the UK gun laws, how come so many folks in the book have 'em willy AND nilly? Joining us this week is the fantastic …
 
Wishing you all the superlatives of the season with this brief message and an uplifting Carol for 2020. Thanks to everyone for listening, subscribing and your kind words for what has been an absurd premise for a podcast. The final two chapters of Book One will be out soon! And later in 2021 get ready for book two: The Earth Under Martians RATE | RE…
