A Servant For Life
by Andrea Pinyan. A Radio Hound Production

A Room In The Middle
by Vladimir Zelevinsky
1787, Massachusetts. Farmers, returning from the Revolutionary War, find their homes in foreclosure—and decide to protest, starting what will be known as Shays' Rebellion. After a disastrous attempt to take the Springfield arsenal, the surviving rebels are pursued through the blizzard by a superior force of state regulars. Three rebels are cornered in an abandoned farmhouse and have less than an hour to decide whether they give up or die.

Revolt! Death! And Taxes!
by Zero Boy

Zero Boy takes you on sonic, comic, and visual journey to Boston and England to learn what really happened!

Your Colonel
by Montgomery Sutton
In July 1776, the Declaration of Independence is the last thing on the mind of young Colonel
Aaron Burr. As the British fleet invades Staten Island, Burr’s illicit romance with the teenage daughter of a British Major and his longstanding battle of principles with George Washington collide, propelling him towards becoming our most vilified founding father.

*For Your Colonel, there is no children's rate, and TDF vouchers will not be accepted
