Episode 161: TWSC – What Could Be Worse Than Murray’s Chinese Cuisine? by Void Munashii

Posted in Comedy, Horror, Short Story, TWSC, Void Munashii on July 12, 2014 by dunesteef

MurraysChineseCuisine

On their way home from what possibly could have been the worst Chinese restaurant of all time, Marty and Liza miss a hairpin turn on an icy road, and get to find out just what exactly could be worse than Murray’s Chinese Cuisine.

Afterwards, it’s Stephen King vs. George R. R. Martin, planners vs. pantsers, and Hulk vs. anti-vaccine folks.

Special thanks to Pete Nixon for producing today’s story, and to Matt Nixon, Heather Nixon, and Todd Flatland for lending their voices to the episode.

Episode 158: Fatherly Pride by Rish Outfield

Posted in Audio Drama, Comedy, Rish Outfield, Short Story on May 7, 2014 by dunesteef

Fatherly Pride

It’s a sequel everybody! But not really, more like a side-quel. Or whatever the Scorpion King movie was. It’s that. Recorded live at the NMX, then taken home and edited and sweetened until you’d never know that it was once live, it’s “Fatherly Pride.” Rish Outfield is digging up that barbecue sketch idea that he used in last year’s episode called “Wedded Bliss.” Three guys are having a conversation at a barbecue. That’s what the plot is, go…

Afterwards, Rish and Big talk about performing comedy live before a studio audience, parenthood/unclehood, and debate for long pointless hours just which Jeff Speakman flick is the best.

Special thanks to Bryan Lincoln and Marshal Latham for lending their voices to the episode.

Episode 157: TWSC – Surfer Dudes From Outer Space by Clay Dugger

Posted in Clay Dugger, Comedy, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Short Story, TWSC on April 16, 2014 by dunesteef

surferdudes

Clay Dugger brings the stirring tale of one man’s search to regain the happiness of his youth…and the interesting folks he finds it with. Aw, who am I kidding, just read the title, it should be enough right?

Afterwards, Big plumbs the depths of Rish’s hate for all things surfer related. Just how deep does this twisted soul’s hate run anyway? I mean, how hateful and awful can one person be? Well, this is Rish we’re talking about, so…

Episode 156: NMX Live Reading – Chuckles Mulrooney: Attorney For The Damned by Scott Sigler

Posted in Comedy, Fantasy, Scott Sigler, Short Story on March 25, 2014 by dunesteef

Chuckles

In our final episode recorded live at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas, we perform Scott Sigler’s short story “Chuckles Mulrooney: Attorney For The Damned.” Satan keeps sneaking hidden clauses into the contracts people sign when selling their souls. Chuckles himself got duped this way, but he’s not taking it lying down. He wants to stick it to the man.

Episode 155: NMX Live Reading – Overtaken by Rish Outfield

Posted in Comedy, Horror, Live Reading, Rish Outfield, Short Story on March 13, 2014 by dunesteef

Takeover day

In our second episode recorded live at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas, Rish Outfield presents “Overtaken.” It’s Takeover Day in the town of Traysi, Arizona, and Nicole and Barry Dugger are unfamiliar with this particular phenomenon. But that doesn’t necessarily make them exempt from it.

Special thanks to Dave Thompson (Podcastle Enforcer), Renee Chambliss, Abigail Hilton and Algar Van Cluth for lending their voices to today’s story, and to Gino Moretto for providing the artwork.

It’s the first of three live readings performed at the New Media Expo that are headed your way. On Saturday morning, we performed Mike Resnick’s “Catastrophe Baker and the Ship Who Purred.” It’s Catastrophe doing his favorite things, fighting and loving.

Episode 141: Wedded Bliss by Rish Outfield

Posted in Audio Drama, Comedy, Live Reading, Rish Outfield on March 24, 2013 by dunesteef

WeddedBliss

Harry heads to his friend Mark’s house for a neighborhood barbecue, when a sore subject comes up. Then a contest in one-upsmanship breaks out. Who has it best, Harry, Mark, or Fisher? And who has it worst?

Afterward, Rish gives us a sort of on the spot author’s note…no, that’s not right…more like an origin story, which is more fitting, I suppose since it’s Rish we’re talking about. And Big and Rish introduce the newest Dunesteef writing contest. Be sure you sign up to be a part of it. Oh, and leave your nouns that you’d like us to use in the prompts in the comments below.

Special thanks to L. “Scribe” Harris and Bryan Lincoln for lending their voices to the tale.

Episode 131: The Appliance Of Science by Sheila Crosby

Posted in Comedy, Science Fiction, Sheila Crosby, Short Story on July 14, 2012 by dunesteef


Jose got in an accident a while back. It left him with a lot of time on his hands, so he used his education and created some household appliances with artificial intelligence, but they’re ruining his life! Or are they?

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about perhaps a dozen different things that they want you to know about. What might they be? Links in the show notes.

Episode 130: The Lady Swordmaster by Brock L. Noel

Posted in Action, Adventure, Brock L. Noel, Comedy, Fantasy, Short Story on June 17, 2012 by dunesteef


Remel is one of the greatest swordsmen in the land. He definitely would be the greatest, but he has a few challenges that stand in his way…especially today, and with an invading force sacking the city, what will he do?

Afterward, Big and Rish say silly things. Most of the really heavy, depressing stuff has been cut out of this episode, so while it might still be offensive, it’s sure to be fun.

Special thanks to SonnySee for producing today’s story, also to Bryan Lincoln, Dan Lynch, DesiaB, Rob Haines, Josh Roseman, Damon Shaw, Wendy Cooper, Scott Pigg, and SonnySee for lending their voices to today’s episode.

Episode 124: The Question by Robert Lowell Russell

Posted in Comedy, Robert Lowell Russell, Romance, Science Fiction, Short Story on February 14, 2012 by dunesteef


Is this our Valentine’s Day episode, or another anti-Valentine’s show? You be the judge.

It’s the question on everybody’s minds, as soon as they hear about fully-functional, human-like robots. And though you wouldn’t know it from listening to Rish Outfield, this story was not written by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Afterward, very little gets said about robot sex, but there is a little more spoken about human relationships, and a couple of stories about inspiration are swapped. If you’re that guy who complained about platitudes, though, you will find nothing of worth here, so move along.
