What's Fobbies are Borange?

A collaborative effort between Stephen Georg, Jami Carignan, Jane Tovar and Mari M, “Fobbies are Borange” (or FaB) was a segment on Jami’s online radio show (hosted by Starmen.net) where EarthBound came to life, live (the episodes were performed live on the show). The show ran from September 2007 to October 2008. It followed the adventures of Ness as he traveled through the game, completely rewritten to give the protagonists more character. FaB is considered one of the greatest video game fanwork endeavors of all time, so check it out!

Loids are not Christmas

LanC is a radio play of Mother 1, but unlike FaB which is scripted, LanC is completely improvised. To make things even better (worse?), Stephen (Ninten) has never played past the first visit to Magicant, so he has no idea what’s going on. This show was also performed live.
