Re: The Burnham Society: A new podcast nearly a year old.

Thank you. It's one of my core beliefs. The closest I came to writing about it was episode 11, 'Tsuru'.

The Burnham Society: A new podcast nearly a year old.

Hey, everyone. Infrequent poster and sometime drabbler Rowan here to tell you about my show. The Burnham Society is a John Hodgmanesque journey into the magical history of Chicago, where the supernatural is just another immigrant culture. The podcasts are either comedic historical lectures (now with...

The Devil's white shoes.

“Don’t be such a child,” said the Devil as she took a drag from her cigarette. “I didn’t make you do this.” She stepped over the broken ruin of my Margaret, the congealing blood on the floor moving away from the Devil’s immaculate white shoes. “Humans are nothing but primal urges and traumas careful...

WTM

The podcaster glowered at his guest from across the table. The comedian nervously adjusted his tie, the white fabric with pink polka dots a reminder of better times. "I never understood you as an act. I could never figure out if you were playing it straight with the jokes, or that this was some sort...

Neither did we, when it happened. This was an actual moment last week.

Have a Horrible New Year.

We all sat together, inebriated on cheese and cheap wine, flipping through the DVDs trying to find something that would signify the closing of the year. We gave up and selected the one that all of us had memorized, providing a soundtrack to our final celebration. All of us, actors, painters, produce...

Intervention

The envelope lay next to the razor. Elise had given him the envelope a year ago, before she’d disappeared. One day, she’d said, he would follow her on the journey. The moment it became too much, she’d said pleadingly, he had to read the message. Wiping his eyes, he cut open the envelope. A small int...

The Talk.

The son held the mask in his hands, looking as if he were about to throw up. “-You’re- Captain Awesome?!?” His father nodded, smiling. His son had grown, becoming more a reflection of his own youthful days. “Yes, I felt it was time…” “But you –can’t- be. You don’t understand…” The father nodded, pul...

Playtime

“And he can punch through steel, and he can fly and he protects the city!” The boy sat with his dad in the main room of their tiny apartment. He held his brand new Captain Awesome figurine like a cherished treasure. His father smiled, watching him play. “So what’s his secret identity?” “No one knows...

Payback

The alchemist sat glumly on the stone floor tapping at the edge of the chalk circle. It’s not that he didn’t want to leave, but his legs just didn’t want to go past the edge. Beyond the ring were walls that operated two dimensions further than his eyes allowed, painted in the chartreuse of madness. ...

Chase

The intern stared up the length of the Chase Tower, swallowing. The curve of it swept up high past the Loop. “I can’t do this.” “Put your hands on the building. What do you see?” The intern leaned forward, staring up the length of the concrete, his heart racing. The curve of the building created a f...
