I took it upon myself to send the following email to "The Rick Emerson Show." a local pop-culture morning program (not your typical zany Whiz-Bang, yuck yuck show, these guys got LOTS of love for zombies...)
What do you think of everyone sending a similiar email to whoever fills that role in their community.
Dear Rick, et al.
Being the guru's of pop-culture and all things geek-centric, I think you might find this terribly amusing.http://redirectingat.com/?id=593X1004&u ... MXk5Y7Gv6Y
Norm Sherman's podcast, The Drabblecast, is an amazingly hilarious science-fiction web magazine with production values that can only be described as 100 percent professional. He's an amazing talent that will also now be co-hosting EscapePod, the premiere source for audio science fiction on the internet. EP has around 25000 listeners and currently is second only to Analog magazine as a source of modern science fiction short stories.
You should check out www.drabblecast.org
and give a listen to some of the recent episodes.
I especially recommend listening to episode 124 which has an hysterical Drabblenews story about corpse-fueled robots.http://web.me.com/normsherman/Site/Podc ... Emrys.html
Episode 123, features the story "Toast" which is also very very amusing.
He'd be a great guy to interview. It would be wonderful content for your show and a nice boost for Norm who really deserves the recognition.
Norm's a talented songwriter/singer. If you like Jonathan Coulton, you'll LOVE Norm Sherman
Also, it'd be a nice boost to me. I have two short stories (drabbles) that are going to be featured on upcoming episodes of The Drabblecast.
