Er, well, based on what I know of Samantha's writing from her stories, I'd say it's very imaginative and Impressionistic. I enjoy it and think it's fun to be able to put pieces together myself. This story was a series of scenes from a much larger story, I felt, which the reader gets to put together....

Very well done. One of Norm's best readings. Great story too, actually made me tear up, despite the fact that it felt like it was totally trying to make me tear up.

Well, staying away from the "zombie stories are lame" blanket statement I'll ask, why was this a zombie story? Aren't zombies by definition the walking, unthinking dead? Cannibals aren't zombies. Eating other human beings, whether ritualistic or because of mental illness/rabies-like infection, seems...

I didn't think it started slow at all. In fact, I don't see how anyone could write a more intense opener. All in all, I was horrified throughout most of this and a bit nauseus in the end (although that could have been the bad chinese food). The story was original, I don't even know if I'd file it as...

Dear lord- Hush and Hark- the story, production and perfect reading- was maybe one of the most chilling things I have ever heard. I was taking a walk on a cold October evening while listening and was terrified. I loved Metasciencefiction too but was a bit jarred by it initially because Hush and Hark...

Catching up on old episodes here. I thought this was a fun story.
I'm mostly interested to know where Norm got the bluegrass Star Wars music for the Drabblenews- awesome!

Wow. Ya, I didn't see that coming. This story filled me with ambivalence- it was well written and also disturbing. I'm not sure I was ready to be disturbed that way. It was almost cheap how the end shot in there- like, let's write a poignant story and then drop in this terrible twist for the sake of...

Ya, this story was classic Drabblecast. I gotta give it to the author, when you sit down with a pen to write, the radioactive mutant badger muse doesn't always bite. It worked. It was flash fiction. We had two characters, I knew enough about them to care and they conflicted. I was paying attention t...

Great episode. Loved both the Drabbles (especially the garden jockey) and the feature was fantastic. The story had great compression and said all it needed to in the best amount of words. Very tight and entertaining.

I wrote this mainly to have fun and play around with the teenage angst theme. I also wanted the ending to be ambivalent. Was Morrissey actually a zombie, or was it just in the kid's head? When Bobby said, "I'm obviously not bonkers," it's obvious he actually was. yes, I guess that ending idea could...

Did I miss a theme song? I thought this was pretty hilarious. Even from the artwork on the episode you can tell it's not taking itself too seriously. This was a great satire of Saved by the Bell era teen horror movies and not a bad story either. Seemed long for a Drabblecast but definately had me dr...

I usually hate stories like this, or art/music basically anything too surreal and out there, but this story was awesome! Very engaging and I found myself very happy that Bobbie had taken the stuff and floated out the window with the Designer, even though I had no clue who he was or what exactly it m...

Don't see what's unethical about it. Well, ok, maybe in some situations, but if the technology was regulated and people could donate their own body parts to save loved ones, as described in the story, that would be amazing.

Cool concept and great narration.

Great show! My favorite was the last piece. It started out cute, a bunch of crazy bachelor toys just messing around but ended up being very poignant and actually made me water up a bit with the message about cutting old strings. I thought Steve nailed the narration and I liked how his tone changed t...

Still catching up. I've gotta say- this was an amazing episode, even for DC standards. This wins the podcast Emmy's in my book. Hilarious fake narrator from Tales from the Crypt, fantastic Drabble and story from Kevin, incredible production and narration by Norm, it just doesn't get better than this.

I have no idea what the ending signified. Listened to the last minute several times and I'm still not sure. Is it a man externalizing his religious doubts in the form of a convenient magical object and hallucinating a reason to put himself out of his misery? Or is it really a beluga whale heralding...

The story did feel alot like Life of Pi. I thought the story was mostly good, but have to disagree with Mr Tweedy. I wish it had been even more vague. I liked that the beluga was essentially a missionary to the man, just like he was supposed to be, both going out to convince someone that needed "sav...

I wasn't expecting Cheryl to be a vampire- good twist, and funny too (the bloodsucker line). The hypnosis scene was a bit drawn out, but other than that it was a lot of fun. Good job from both readers.
