THE ADVENTURES OF GERARD DUPRIS is the brainchild of writer/composer Beau Mahurin. Drawing inspiration from literary and cinematic pulp fiction writers, DUPRIS was first developed as a private reading venture at Oberlin College, employing production methodology acquired from involvement with a pre-existing live weekly radio show on campus.

Ultimately online podcasting proved to be the most effective and rewarding method in its final form. The pilot episode of a trial-run season first aired in March 2010, brought to life through the assistance of regional volunteer talent in the Central Florida region. Despite positive initial responses, complications arose, bringing the trial run to an end in mid-2011.

Since then, a new sound and show format have been developed. And at last DUPRIS has been revived! The first three seasons debuted between 2014 and 2017, with a resurgence of interest in 2019-2020.
