Probably not, and certainly not officially.

Think of it like a new The Venture Bros. episode, or a new, good, Stephen King story... It may be a few more years, but eventually you'll get one. :)
(And unlike Drabblecast, those other two are paid handsomely.)

I've been asking myself the same question for a while. Thanks for the answer.
Related question: I owe the Drabblecast lots of support from when I was a fan who couldn't spare the cash.

Does it make sense to subscribe at this point, or should I rather funnel my funds to other Make The World Better causes?

p.s. anything specific one could do to be of assistance to the Drabblecast?

I'm sure Norm would appreciate any funds you wished to donate. And, if you give $120 or $10/month, it unlocks all the B-sides episodes for you.

My hunch is that the only way to get more regular episodes, though, is if you can seriously help with production (slush reading, editing, podcast audio, etc.). Contact Norm directly about that...

Well, I sadly cancelled my monthly donation today (after almost 7 years).
I would be happy to sign up again in the future but I don't know what's happening with the donations.

Norm & crew, I sure appreciate the stories (and especially the times when Norm got to throw in his own humor!). Hope to see more in the future!

Whatever it's status I just wanted to drop by and thank Norm and the crew for all the joy and strange pleasure they put out into the world for so long. It really was a great ride, and if it comes back that would be wonderful. And if not, to everything there is a season.

Turn, turn, turn biotches.

Peace out,

ROU

I'm so late to the party, but I love the show. Does anyone still need help? I'm a bit of a writer/Podcaster myself.

I hope it's not dead. I've had to look for some other fiction podcasts, but I've not found any that I like as much.

Ironically I had turned on my brother-in-law to Drabblecast late last year, around the time episodes became sparse.

It's not looking good. Norm even left Escape Pod, which was his first love. Hope he's all right...

Just checking in as I do from time to time. Norm left EP? Any more info on this? Granted I can do my own digging but if you have links to announcements or forum posts they'd be appreciate.

As if my week couldn't get any worse...

So, what happened?

Any kind of update from anyone representing the Drabblecast would be nice. What has happened? Is the Drabblecast coming back? If not, why are you still allowing people to donate?

I hope everything is ok with Norm and the crew! This truly was the best fiction-cast around.
