Black Jack Justice

Modern hardboiled detective drama in the style of the golden age of radio
from archive.org

Black Jack Justice is a full-cast audio drama series, written and performed in the style of the classic adventure broadcasts from the golden age of radio. Black Jack Justice was written and directed by creator Gregg Taylor, adapted from the "play-within-a-play" content of his one-act stage play of the same title. The series, set in the late 1940s - mid 1950s, is set in an unnamed Great American City, and tells the story of supposedly hard-as-nails private detective Jack Justice and his partner in crime-fighting, Trixie Dixon, girl detective, who work well together in spite of not liking each other very much at all. In the style of the period in which the story is set, there is a good deal of first person narration from both detectives, which is frequently contradictory in nature. The series was recorded in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario between 2005 - 2016 and was released through the Decoder Ring Theatre podcast. The characters were also featured in two novels, Black Jack Justice and Black Jack Justice: Dead Men Run. The series is made available on archive.org with the permission of the author, who retains ownership.
