Re: Drabblecast 424 – On the Feeding Habits of Humans: A Firsthand Account

Wow! What a story! So very imaginative and poignant. It truly points out that we, as a species, are so remiss in showing the compassion and respect for each other that we should - globally - at this time and place in our residence on planet Earth. You nailed it! That's why I love stories through al...

Thanks Huff! I second (third?) everything u said here! We generally have more body than we need, especially when we check out. As for the story, so I wonder if I'm the only one who was ill at ease about halfway through wondering where things were going with this one? Disabled girl/arranged marriage/...

Thanks twix! These are indeed weird and amazing times we live in. I too loved the alternate "coming out" angle that Matt went through. I also reeeaally wasnt expecting a happy ending when I first read this and was glad that it delivered!

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: 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 ...

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!

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...
