JEFFREY & SUSAN BRIDGES

Writers of comics, screenplays, teleplays and audio drama - We're alumni of the Top Cow Talent Hunt, and have been published in the Not Forgotten, MANthology, Alterna IF Crime, and Alterna IF Horror anthologies. Our lady-led cyberpunk action comic "Killswitch" is out now. We have a pilot on the #WGASolidarityChallenge Staffing Grid. Writers of screenplays, teleplays, comics, and award-winning audio drama.


Producers of audio drama and webseries - Pendant Productions has been making award-winning audio drama since 2004. We've been making great content, seeing it through to completion and hitting our release dates for over a decade, and have production down to something of a science.
Though most of our shows are primarily provided as podcasts, we recently created two prestige shows available on Amazon, Audible and iTunes: "Phantom Canyon" (a horror/western co-created with Geoffrey Thorne) and the official audio drama adaptation of Valiant Entertainment's "Archer & Armstrong" comic. Our shows have won multiple Parsec Awards and Audio Verse Awards for excellence in speculative fiction podcasting and scripted audio drama. In 2017 we produced the pilot episode of our first webseries, "Active Radioactive Radio", and ran a successful Kickstarter to fund the first season of the show. 


Why "birdguest"? - One merry day a FedEx driver delivered a package to us. Right on the box, right there on the label, it said "Bridges", which is in fact our last name. Despite this and all logic to the contrary, the delivery man said he had a package for "Birdguest". Why this happened is anyone's guess, perhaps he'd had slightly too much laudanum that day. Whatever the reason, our own personal meme was born. What better URL could we have, we ask you?
