We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place? On the Beginnings podcast, writer and performer Andy Beckerman asks well-known and up-and-coming comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences.

On today's show, we talk to Ben Blacker and Ben Acker of The Thrilling Adventure Hour, a podcast and staged show in the style of old time radio that frequently stars comedians and actors like Paul F. Tompkins, Paget Brewster and James Urbaniak. Acker and Blacker are also TV writers and have written for shows like the WB's Supernatural and networks like Fox, Nickelodeon and USA. They also work in comics and recently wrote a Wolverine graphic novel for Marvel and are working on a Kickstarter campaign for a Thrilling Adventure Hour book. At the beginning of October, the two Bens were in town to do some Thrilling Adventure Hour shows in Brooklyn were nice enough to take the time out of a meeting-filled day to sit down with us at a studio in midtown for an atypical but fun episode!
