BattleIdeas1

The Dunesteef is back with a brand new edition, produced by Bryan Lincoln! In “The Battle of the Ideas,” Garrett is an aspiring writer who seldom makes time for writing his stories. He figures his characters understand and will forgive him for it. Turns out, he couldn’t be more wrong.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about the major economic strengths and weaknesses of Sudan. Oh, no, actually, they talk about writing.

Episode 125: The Ever-Dreaming Verdict Of Plagues (Part 1) by Jason Sanford

Posted in Action, Jason Sanford, Novelette, Science Fiction on February 27, 2012 by dunesteef


In a sequel to his story “Plague Birds” that appeared on the Dunesteef on episode 92, Jason Sanford tells the story of Plague Bird Christina de Ane’s further adventures in the future earth that has been driven toward the brink of insanity by gene manipulation. She arrives in a new village, where the Alderman’s son has been brutally murdered, and is duty bound to dispense justice. But something just doesn’t seem right…outtakes

Also, Big and Rish talk about how much better The Dark Knight is than its predecessor Batman Begins. They also talk about how much better Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan is than its predecessor Star Trek: The Motion Picture. And that’s before the story even begins. You’d think we were in for a long show, but surprisingly, they reign it in after the story ends. You may not be searching for a way to deafen yourself by the end of the show after all.
