Episode 143: The Templar by Edward McKeown

Posted in Action, Adventure, Edward McKeown, Fantasy, Horror, Short Story on May 12, 2013 by dunesteef

Templar

Jeremy Leclerc is a Knight Templar. In his journeys, he’s encountered many supernatural beings, some friendly, some less-than-friendly. But now, women have been disappearing throughout Charlotte because of a hideous, soul-sucking creature. Has he met his match this time?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about proper pronunciation of words versus saying things the cool-sounding way, French accents and their ability or lack of ability to scare away listeners, and what stuff we might have prepared for you in the future on the podcast.

Special thanks to Bryan Lincoln for producing the episode and to Starla Huchton, Kathryn Pride, L. “Scribe” Harris, and Kathy Bowler lending their voices to the tale, as well as Michael Church for the art.

Episode 142: BMSE – Saying Goodbye by Christopher Munroe

Posted in BMSE, Christopher Munroe, Drama, Fantasy, Short Story on April 14, 2013 by dunesteef

Saying Goodbye

After a fatal heart attack, a man’s ghost tries desperately to let his wife know that he is well, and that she should move on and try to be happy. But without a body, he can do nothing but watch. There must be a way…

Later, Big and Rish bring you the long anticipated “Drawing of the Three”. What’s that you may ask? Well, it’s the drawing of the three words for each participant in the Triple Word Score Contest. Listen in and find out what you or others will be stuck crafting a story out of. Good times will be had by none…er, I mean all.

Special thanks to Melissa Hills for producing the episode and lending her voice to the tale, as well as Mustafaa Ansare for the music.

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.

Linger cover art - final

The phone rings in the middle of the night . . . and it’s time for Levi Keller to do his work once again. You see, sometimes he has to visit with someone after an “accident,” and let them know where they stand.

It’s another winning entry in the Broken Mirror Story Event, this one written by Sam Schreiber. Afterward, Big and Rish talk a bit about the BMSE contest, and about Gino Moretto’s production. They mention their recent visit to Las Vegas, announce a new Incentive Episode . . . and Rish Outfield makes a startling revelation!

Utopia Plain

In this sequel to “The Battle of Leila the Dog,” everybody’s favorite Gartino, Cy De Gerch, returns home to Mars after nearly losing her life and her ship. But Mars is not the home she remembers . . . and her life there is not quite her own.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about second chances and parallel timelines. With lots of irritating musical references. Be warned.

Wes is tired of being fat. He’s tried everything, diet, exercise, medication, even surgery, but he remains morbidly obese. Nothing works, and he’s about to find out why…

Episode 137: Todd Elrin And The Forever Reset by Jonathan C. Gillespie

Posted in Action, Jonathan C. Gillespie, Science Fiction, Short Story on November 26, 2012 by dunesteef

It’s the last day of the year, and it’s time for Todd Elrin to leave his current location, and start the year over somewhere else, as he has done many times this particular calendar year. But an angry visitor from the future has other plans.

Afterward, Big and Rish sing about Jonathan C. Gillespie, and ruminate about the similarities between this story and another, and the differences one man can make in one’s life. Hopefully no hate letters will be necessary after this one.

Special thanks to Tanja Milojevic for producing today’s story and lending her voice to the tale, and to Gino Moretto for providing the episode art.

Episode 136: CHEMO: The Pieces Of Erica Smith by J.M. Perkins

Posted in Action, Horror, J.M. Perkins, Science Fiction, Short Story on October 29, 2012 by dunesteef


It’s only been two months since Agent Joseph faced masses of zombies while locked inside of a prison. Now, he has a new mission. This one is so big that half of all CHEMO is being mobilized. They have to destroy every last piece of the immortal cell line that spawned out of a tumor grown on a woman named Erica Smith.

Afterwards, Big and Rish talk CHEMO, get a lot of text messages, and giggle far more than is professionally acceptable. Beware, there’s probably something offensive in all of that…we’re not sure what, but we’re pretty sure it’s there.

Episode 135: Harlan’s Wake by John Mierau

Posted in Drama, John Mierau, Science Fiction, Short Story on October 11, 2012 by dunesteef

Tyler left home to serve in the military. He was assigned to the security detail for the alien visitors known as Silvers. Nothing could be more shameful in the eyes of his family. You never really can leave home, though. Tyler’s father, Harlan, is dying, and he is called back to be there for his final hours. Tyler thinks he knows what awaits him at the family farm, but he couldn’t be more wrong…

In a first for the show, Big and Rish have the producer of the episode, Bryan Lincoln, as a very special guest star. They talk about the production, its challenges, and how this story is unlike all the episodes that came before it. They’re demons, Lenny!

Episode 134: Remember Mars by Michael Anthony

Posted in Drama, Michael Anthony, Science Fiction, Short Story on September 18, 2012 by dunesteef

Abraham is old and senile. He keeps going on and on about being an astronaut. But he’s just senile, right?

Afterwards, Rish and Big talk about the space race, disillusionment, lack of interest, and whether there is a future in space travel. This one, by the way, is for you Neil Armstrong. Thanks for giving us dreams to pursue.

Oh, and here is the picture of the cross-stitch we talked about:
