Sorry, that's all I got. :(

I don't remember title or anything but I feel like it was a Pseudopod episode. But maybe not.
It was more than enough. I took a second look through Pseudopod's archive and found it. Something There Is by Joe Nazare, episode 166. Google Reader's search has some answering to do. :lol: Oh, hm. I might not have Pseudopod in Reader. :oops: False alarm.

Hi guys:

So I've added:

Metamor City
(I didn't realize it was x-rated at first. Be warned if playing your feed at work...)

Terra Incognita
(Great stories, readers can be a little fuzzy. However I like the idea that the authors read it.

Well Told Tales
(where has this been hiding?)

Beneath Ceaseless skies
(Yeah, I'm a fantasy ho)

Clarksworld
(oooh! Love the host.)

I did listen to The Takeover, but I was jaded from the getgo. I'm tired of the undead and I dislike The Office. I'm not crazy about straight superhero stuff, so I'm unsure about Playing fro Keeps.

(I suppose I should have mentioned I already listen to all the pods, Dunesteef, Cowry Catchers and various and sundry non-story podcasts on topics such as baseball, crafting, sustainable living, nerdy tech stuff, etc)

Metamor City is quite yummy. Has Well Told Tales started updating again? They seemed to have faded right after I started listening.

Not that I can see, but I was downloading backlogs.

You are saying you prefer gay superhero stuff?

Just talked to the Clonepod people. They'll be back up in less than a month, with a more mature audience in mind.

Didn't they say they were gonna aim for an audience more mature than Norm?
Well, okay, Norm does that too, I guess. After all, where else is there to aim? But sometimes it just is what it is.

Hehe, nah, I was joshin at the insinuation that I'm not mature.
And I'm pretty much not. The word is way too close to "manure" isn't it?

I kinda dug the kid hosts at clonepod, I hope they don't give that up. It was a unique angle. If anything I thought they should focus on less mature/R rated material-- there's plenty of that out there already. They were set up to hit a new and growing niche of young podcast listeners (could tap into the Harry Potter gen and all these vamp kids) and I would totally subscribe to a young adult fiction podcast if the stories were good.

I'd consider writing a young adult fiction podcast if not for the fact that the SF&F market is so flush with young adult fiction at the moment ... and I'm kind of bored by that angle.

It's kind of nice that a lot of podcastdom is in the slightly more mature range. I wouldn't say there's no room for young adult work, but I think podcast fiction needs to expand its audience in general. Podcast consumers are a minor slice of total media consumers in the U.S. Our "market" feels saturated by content because the ratio of creators to consumers is so low. I don't really have the solution to that, alas.

Judging by the Birthdays listed at the bottom of the forum home page, it seems like the bulk of the forumites are in the 25-45 demo. Interesting.

The "Value Propositions" are really screwed up. Look at the scores of flicks that cost $100 million to make, charge you $10 to go see them, and $5 for rancid popcorn. For that the audience get 120 minutes of "meh". Now weigh that against a free podcast that comes to you and gives you a weeks worth of creative, brain-engaging spark and an interactive forum community experience where you get a chance to create and get published.

Norm should start a Podcasting School. He could charge $5000 per semester, hire us all to be tenured professors, and collect student loans. If he could just get over this idealistic creative commons "For the Good of Mankind" crap...

i loved listening then but then it was gone soon after JEFFREY DEREGO had his heart attack. Heard some of the union dues storys got optioned for a movie or tv.

i wondered if it was home schooled kids that were doing it because what 13 year old has time in regular school.

This is an excerpt from their email to me: "We are currently starting out again. The children are in their teens now so it will no longer be considered young adult - we may move to R."

I thought it was cool that Abbie and Forrest (the Clonepod hosts) have the same names as my brother and me (Hughes's first name is Forrest, but he's a junior, so we always called him by his middle name). :)
