It seems the dead are stirring again. While plans for our next live reading is still in the works, The Unsettled Foundation is proud to announce our upcoming podcast, The Electronic Voice Phenomenon. In the interest of expanding our icy grip beyond Minneapolis, the podcast will feature interviews, fiction, audio drama, and other concerns of the dark and dreary. Keep vigil, dear friends, and do spread the word. We’ll be open for submissions soon.
The Unsettled Foundation is pleased to announce that we are now open for submissions for our debut issue of The Electronic Voice Phenomenon. We urge you to proceed with caution.
The Unsettled Foundation haunts Honey Bar (205 E Hennepin Ave Minneapolis, MN 55414) come August 24 @6pm. Bring your sturdiest protective talisman, we can’t be held responsible for any unwelcome possessions.
Finally, this recording was recovered from the ruins of a dilapidated popcorn stand. It appears to be a recording of that fateful night’s proceedings. We hold no responsibility for any physiological or physiological ruin that may occur as a result of listening to this audio.
A special thank you to our auricular archeologists, Messrs Mason Butler & Ben Heath.
When word came in that Countess Anna Sprengel’s dirigible had been shot down en route to the theater, it was the incoherent howling of ghosts and the apocalypse finished that finished the eve. Only then did the intrepid hosts reemerge — banishing the beasts to silence in an effort to restore sanity to the world. While it appears their initial efforts were successful, whispers of The Unsettled Foundation’s return already about. Precaution is advised.

The evening continued with terrors of deep space, broken bodies, and government conspiracies.
(Carly Feroe, William Alexander, S.A. Rudek)
The audience was given no respite as tales of transfiguration, kidnapping, and cannibalism followed.
(Jennie Goloboy, Jefferson Hansen, Kate Saturday)
The first of them came with stories of aliens, madness, possession, and seduction.
(David Schmitz, Jessie Hausman with Leah Defenbaugh, David Steffen)
JUNE 23, 2012 In what would eventually be known as The Unsettled Foundation, a terrible legion of souls took possession of the decrepit historic stage of The Hollywood Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota. One after the other, these vile creatures executed a relentless onslaught on their helpless audience. Whether you call them ‘writers’ or ‘readers’ or ‘storytellers’, their nefarious legacy is as stark as arterial blood on fresh snow. Please be warned — the coming images and sounds are not for faint-hearted or weak-minded.
