That is in fact the precise reason that I decided to grow a mustache and goatee - so I could claim to be an evil twin.

Ask each one what the other would say if asked who stole the jewels. You'll get the same lie twice. :) Then again, this only works if one of them always lies and the other always tells the truth...

"Coiffuture Conundrum." At first I was going to correct you, since the word is "coiffure". But then I realized that you'd combined "coiffure" and "future"! I feel silly now for not seeing it earlier... Nonetheless, that's completely awesome! Can I use that as a title? No one will know what a "coiff...

The Good Doctor

The doctor paced, laughing manically as thunder boomed in the sky above. Torrential rain pelted into his inner sanctum. He didn’t care. Disgruntled villagers with torches were storming up the hillside. He didn’t care. Cackling, he flipped a massive switch. His machine roared to life, harnessing the ...

I wasn't exactly sure what to think of this story. While I know I shouldn't do this, I couldn't help yelling (in my head) at the number of chemical and physical impossibilities in this story - drinking wood, metal, etc. Perhaps I wasn't pleased because the story started off obeying the laws of the n...

Great stuff. I have to admit that I especially enjoyed the second piece, since Cake won against Pie in that one. In the immortal debate of Cake vs Pie, I'll choose Cake every time :) Desert preference aside, these were really quirky pieces that were narrated well and weren't overdone (if you'll pard...

Barbershop

I was alone in my dusty apartment when the time traveler appeared. He materialized silently and cast his glance around the room frantically. "Is this February 11th, 2012?" he asked officially. "Yes... yes it is." I stammered. He stiffened. "Then there is no time to waste! The fate of the world… of e...

I really loved this piece, especially since I listen to Hooting Yard. I loved that there were a few references to the Hooting Yard universe - Pointytown, a certain pamphleteer, etc. The narration was great, too. I occasionally imagined what it would have been like if Frank Key had read it, but then ...

This story didn't have as strong an effect on me as the last five DCs, so I was tempted to give it a resounding "meh". But then I realized that while the concept wasn't all that great, the execution was actually really good. I was just prematurely judging the story since I disliked the premise. Good...

One of the best Drabblecasts yet...

I'm going to be frank here, and say that this story was the first the first piece of audiofiction that has ever brought tears to my eyes (and the first piece of any kind of fiction since I was seven). I'm really not an emotional guy, but the ending really touched me. The excellent production through...

Episode 100 - Wow!

Wow... This Trifecta blew me away! At first I thought it was a tad horror heavy for a podcast that is normally rather, well, "drabble-y", but I think the first story was "drabble-y" enough for the rest of them. I was listening to this in bed, and the dancing cop bit was so surprising that I sat bolt...

I wasn't as impressed as I usually am by the drabblecast, but this wasn't a bad story. I thought the production was a bit over the top at times, but the narration was spot-on.

I would give my left hand to see more stories like this on the Drabblecast. This is one of my favorite episodes, despite numerous flaws. I listened to this while walking my dog, and I actually stopped dead in my tracks at some of the exceptionally strange parts. The story was also very well produced...

The story moved far too slowly for me - I think it would have worked better as a story grenade. The section where Harvey pulled out the toys and spoke about "hedge-clipping" was hilarious, but the story was very predictable both before and after that. The last few sentences flat-out sucked. "We've g...

The first story was fantastic. The narration was exceptional and while the twist wasn't anything groundbreaking, it was very well executed. The entire piece had a very Drabblecast-ian feel to it - set up a weird scenario and introduce a plot twist to make it even weirder. I can only describe the sec...

The first part of the story was a good example of a standard horror piece, but the second part fell flat for me. Not that it was bad, but I was expecting the tone of the first section to carry throughout the piece, and I was very surprised when it didn't. The entire episode was very well done though...
