Re: Drabbleclassics 31 – Boojum

I'm as much a fan of this universe as the rest of you. DC will always welcome future opportunities to bring this world to y'all in audio. FWIW, I don't think think the three stories we've done from Bear/Monette's collaboration will be the last. In terms of the commentary, I thought Abbie's outro was...

Re: Drabblecast 415 – The Best Scarlet Ceremony Ever!

This story plays on that balance, we must face with our own childhood mythos. Man, you're totally right. Sunday School, etc, it really does feel like a childhood mythos parallel. Cthulhu slumbers this I know... for the Necronomicon tells me so... You might have just inspired a song my friend. :)

Re: Drabblecast 415 – The Best Scarlet Ceremony Ever!

The classic movie Wicker Man a clear inspiration here. Fortunately, this story was so much better than the Nick Cage original. :) https://media.tenor.com/images/0190f331af9b22bc816a2ded93f444e9/tenor.gif https://media1.tenor.com/images/6e8b7f1308a0b9a49418a956d4d4cd5f/tenor.gif?itemid=3501749 This w...

Re: Dribblecast Relaunch

I would love to see this happen, and it's definitely been talked about. Needs a solid core or contributors and enthusiasts behind it like before I think. I can check with Tom but I'm pretty sure the publishing platform and systems are still good to go. Could start promoting this on the main podcast ...

Re: OMG, Seanan McGuire for HPL Month!

Sorry to have to break this news, but sadly Seanan had to back out of this recently due to some health stuff going on. :(
But we'll get her on the show sooner or later, no worries!
And you're going to the LOVE the story we have now instead too! :)

Re: Bsides 77 - Looking For Jake

I love the couples bonding over such a twisted, weird story. :) China's stuff goes this route often in his short fiction. I haven't read as much of his longer form stuff so can't speak to that really. A lot of writers write to fulfill our expectations as to what is happening and how it is fixed/reso...

Re: Drabbleclassics 30- Doubleheader featuring Mur Lafferty (150)

I remember this one from years ago. Mur was sky rocketting in the pod sphere, and it seemed every story podcast I went to, she was there. These two stories really point out why for me. For such short pieces they have this ability to bring you into the weirdness, placing a bleek future where feral h...

Re: Drabblecast 410 – Go Between

This one really felt like classic, old school Drabblecast to me. China is weird to the core. Interesting tidbit of DC inside baseball: Bo uses himself as a starting point for a lot of the faces he uses when doing DC art. Go back and look, you can often see the hilarious similarities... even when you...

Re: Drabblecast 413 – The Rats in the Walls

Lotta work went into this one. If you read the original and compare it to our adaptation you'll see some distinct differences. Wanted to play the idea of race in a very different way that Lovecraft original intended. Patrick did an awesome job-- this shit's hard to read! Magna Mater folks! Magna Mat...
