Episode 177: Wikihistory by Desmond Warzel

Posted in Comedy, Desmond Warzel, Science Fiction, Short Story on December 15, 2015 by dunesteef

Wikihistory

The International Association of Time Travelers member forum has some lively discussion going on over at the Europe – Twentieth Century – Second World War subforum. Let’s listen in and see…

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about online culture and World War II, but separately, because, you know, there’d have to be time travel involved for them to come together at all.

Special thanks to Marshal Latham, Bria Burton, Tena Kolakowski, John Higham, and Jonathan Wilson for lending their voices to the story, to Justin Charles for producing the episode and to Jonathan Wilson for providing the art.

Also, here’s a variant cover provided by our intrepid producer Justin Charles, who made some art like he always does, not knowing that someone else already had. I hate to see his work go to waste, so I include it below.

Episode 170: Be Progressive, Be, Be Progressive by Rish Outfield

Posted in Audio Drama, Comedy, Live Reading, Rish Outfield on April 8, 2015 by dunesteef

BeProgressive

Hey! It’s another barbecue sketch! Hope you’re up for it. This time we get to see a bunch of guys try to one up each other on just how amazingly progressive they are. Enjoy?

Afterward, Rish and Big try to apologize for the sketch, oh and they talk about a few other things too.

Special thanks to Johnny Fiesty and Dave Thompson, Ex-Podcastle Enforcer for lending their voices to the sketch.

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…

Special thanks to Jonathan Wilson for providing the art for the episode.

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.

Special thanks to Scott Sigler, Renee Chambliss, Johnny Feisty, and Marshal Latham for lending their voices to today’s story, and to Bryan Lincoln for live-producing the performance.

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.

Special thanks to Tobias Queen for producing today’s story, also to Julie Hoverson for lending her voice to today’s episode, and to Melissa Hills for creating today’s artwork.
