Re: Drabblecast 373 – Trifecta: Things We Made

Still probably my favorite set of stories to work on.

Re: Drabblecast 405 – Wet Fur

I first heard this on Escapepod, and I loved it then, but this second listen helped me engage with it more fully. Sometimes when something is really good, more of it is revealed if you read/listen again. I loved how it built and coalesced slowly, the revelation near the end about whose family pet w...

Re: Drabblecast 393 - Diamante and Strass

Incidentally, I have since gotten in a new version with the music and FX toned down to a more reasonable level. If you were turned off by that the first go-round, might give it another shot...

Please don't dial back on the sound effects and music. It's one of the things that makes Drabblecast episodes unique.

Re: Drabblecast Director's Cut: Things We Made

Hey, ExecuDork! Thanks for the comments, and no worries - I didn't take any of it as snark. Two quick responses, though: Also in Popups, I found it jarring to hear the narrator's British accent say "three hundred dollars". You caught me... When producing it, I missed the "$300" as a place indicator ...

Putting together a "Kids on Bikes" RPG campaign

Hello, all, First a disclaimer: There is no official sponsorship or endorsement from Drabblecast - express or implied - for this little venture. That said, the core of this RPG group (myself as GM and two player characters) are on the Drabblecast staff, so there's a pretty good chance our sensibilit...

Re: Drabblecast 397 - Fruit and Words

To be fair to Norm, if you think there's too much music and sfx, it's most likely one I produced. I love going whole-hog cinematic, and while Norm has suggested tweaks to emphasis from time to time... it does seem to be what he's wanting, so there probably will be ones like this regularly for a whil...

Re: Drabblecast 390 - I Will Remain

Peek behind the curtain: This is actually one I completed for Norm before the unplanned hiatus and ended up in limbo, so I was so pleased to have this one return with the relaunch. Given this, I didn't actually have the mic I purchased more recently for homegrown sfx. (For that, check out One in Fou...

Re: Drabblecast 383 - recording quality?

Hi, I'll speak to this, as the one who produced "Sun, Moon, Cat, Man." I felt, admittedly, a little guilty about ruining a significant portion of the perfect-quality audio that Veronica sent to me. I made an artistic choice, and my apologies if it was more than you or others were willing to accept. ...

Re: Drabblecast 381 – Unathi Battles The Black Hairballs

Just one little favor to ask from Farseeker: Can we at least listen to the whole damn episode before posting something this critical? I'm trying not to be too defensive, but this does feel like you ate the appetizer, didn't care for it, sent it back, and demanded a refund for the whole filet mignon ...

Re: Drabblecast 370 - The Little Mermaid of Innsmouth

I think some valid critiques, Barto. On the motivation change, it did seem that it was necessary to read into the story quite a bit for the switch to make sense. I think much of the change can be attributed to the sudden revelation of the xenophobia of the male outsider. That, I think, gave our prot...

Re: ??what's up?

Hey, y'all, Just wanted to give everyone a quick heads up that I've just been in contact with Norm via text message. With his blessing, letting you know that he's alive and doing fine. He's just been having "the most insane month of my life" (direct quote). To that end, the Drabble is on a bit of a ...

Re: Drabblecast 360 - Trifecta: Locked Boxes

Thanks so much for these replies. These stories were a blast to put together, so I'm glad to hear people enjoyed listening to them as well. A couple fun notes on the production, for any who care: -The egg cracking effect was just a regular chicken egg, but pitched down about an octave and with a bit...

Thanks, everyone, for the lovely comments. Glad that folks were picking up some of what I was trying to lay down with the production. :)

Re: Drabblecast 356 - An Exodus of Wings

That's great! Thanks, Algernon.

I don't currently have a good website to direct anyone to. Both Tren and Ibba worked for me in my StarShipSofa days, so if they do have a website to promote, it would be linked there wherever their name appears.

Hi, Desmond, This is Adam Pracht, the guest producer for this episode. The female narrator in part 3 was Ibba Armancas. She does fantastic work and was even gracious enough to provide several of the sound effects in part one (namely, the laugh from the shower and the "tense breathing" you might have...
