Season 8, Episode 6: The Alien from Newark

In this full-length radio play, we meet a blue-skinned alien on a New Jersey Transit train who’s trying to escape from Earth through a portal that has something to do with clocks.  Why does he need to escape?  And is there a portal, really?  This terrifying romp offers up nosy passengers, near invisibility, an angry sibling, smoke and lightning, and possibly lethal salad forks.  Don’t jump to the end for the surprise ending.  Don’t.  Really, don’t.  Instead, buy the Men in Charge merch we’re planning to peddle: little NJT train sets, little plastic passengers, little lethal salad forks, and little invisible things you’ll just have to trust us that we mailed to you.
