Everyone is an unmitigated failure.

And then success comes, or it doesn’t. When I was still an unpublished author, I wrote a long story about an average fellow wandering through his relentlessly unremarkable life.  His world wasn’t particularly different from mine, ecept for being set in some down-the-road future. The plot was minimal, the sf ideas scarse.  Yet something about the narrative….

  1. I have not even listened to the podcast yet. I just want to tell you guys how happy I am that you are still here, I was thinking that you had stopped doing podcasts. I have been checking your site twice a week for two months. I am going to download the program now.

    Welcome back!!!!

  2. Ha! I just went to download and I noticed that is has only been a month. It just felt like two..

    Ha ha

  3. I am glad to see a new post..”It’s story time!”

  4. Great story, an interesting twist on the time travel tale.

    At first I found the narration a bit annoying, but then thought it fit the speaker of the story pretty well. The audio editing needs some work, though, I kept getting pulled out of the narrative by a misplaced cut, missed repetition, or jarring change of pitch.

  5. Also funny to see a story in which the pixel-stained technopeasants are the villains, depriving hard-working clairvoyants of their job.

  6. You guys need to get good consistent narrators. That should be the priority when doing a story in audio, no? Just trying to be helpful, it seems to be the main issue with this podcast, but I still give it a shot week to week.

    I agree with L33 and J.
    The story selection has been fantastic.
    Thanks!
    The intros and outros have been well thought out and interesting…a bit personal, but that is a style choice.
    As an audio podcast, the main consideration must be audio quality.
    This story came across as a first read-through, and not a very good one at that.
    I ask the editor of this podcast to get tough.
    This should never have made the air in this condition.
    Looking forward to the superior narration that your superior choices require.

  11. Hair cutting ability will be the key to removing your hair closely, cleanly and most importantly, safely.
    2 And while penis shaving is pretty easy to piano
    movers detroit do,
    lubricate. But if not, you may likewise consider Wahl shavers particularly engineered to this end, too.
    One more thing it could do will be to close up the pores.
    An excellent thinner slots mop roots of hairs at first glance and
    offer a shut and simple shave every time.
