This is one of my favorite stories in some time. It didn't do any heavy lifting but was just a lot of fun and very well produced and read by Norm. Loved the nonchalant handing of children consumption.

This was a fun story, even though it was sad. I loved the two little golems and the dog, very cute. The fantasy world set in suburbia was novel I thought, and would like to see more stories set in this neighborhood, maybe from the Dwarf's perspective, or the Orgre's boyfriend (what purpose did he ha...

What did the sex scene add to the story? Nothing, as far as I can tell. The double and triple entendres were already plentiful. But by having the sex scene, it greatly reduced the number of people I wanted to play the story for. This could have been a great children's story. But the best children s...

I heard Frank Key talking it up at the hooting yard after Drabblecast did Far Far Away

I was surprised to find myself really enjoying this story halfway through. I think once I got into the fable "vibe" it was easier to go with it, like others have said. It was a fun change of pace to hear on this show, definitely one of the stranger that I have heard so far. I too thought of the char...

Yes, the Elmo bit had me cracking up too. For the record, I heard "Who wants to watch Fox?" off the bat (no pun intended), but maybe that's just because I'm easily brainwashed by subliminal marketing. Drabble: Didn't get it at first, then listened again. Nice! Two 50 word stories split up and combin...

That was great! You're way ahead of the game Michael. The average 21 year old isn't writing and selling hilarious little stories like this in his spare time.

Yes, I was not expecting this from Drabblecast. As a new listener, I thought this podcast only did stuff like the Frank Key story, which was the first I listened to. This story really wasn't strange at all, but it was very good. I get the impression Norm does stories like this occasionally as a way ...

For me it was between Sing and Floating Over Time. I'll never forget Sing, it really created a world for me and was so creative. Floating Over Time was beautiful and deep, but Sing pulled me in more.
