... The drabble, on the other hand, was probably the best I can remember. The idea of the market featuring souls that appeal to the best in man and the shady after-hours one that features the worst..., well how all that got put into 100 words is awesome poetry. I am a Carson Beker fan! I have to ag...

liked the whole idea of this, it put a nice twist on the science of it all. Reminded me a little (perhaps in irreverence) of "Intelligent Design" run a few weeks back on Podcastle. A grand bit of fun.

Much as I hate to say it about a Resnick story, for me this was meh. The cliches came a bit thick and fast and it all ended up feeling really contrived. As a story I much preferred Blue which although playing on similar heart strings felt a little more honest.

The first of these just didn't do it for me at all I'm afraid, probably wasn't helped by having the story (in my mind) peopled with characters from the Simpsons. Homer was of course Jesus. Jerry's Sounds more than made up for it though, brilliantly written and with nigh on perfect production this wa...

The Oscars have never been about the most poular film though, if they were films such as Rocky, Saturday Night Fever and Terminator would have won (all I think highest grossing films of their year).

Re: Floating Over Time

I thought this was hands down the most lyrical, beautiful, speculative, poignant and - strange given that one of the characters is presumeably an a.i. - human story podcasts I've ever heard. (in fact I signed up here just so I could post a response to the episode) Same here, I've just signed up the...
