  1. i really enjoyed this one; i especially liked the part where the guy’s sexy former teacher appears and encourages him to go through with it;

    big, have you ever done undersea cave diving? that is supposed to be one of the most dangerous pastimes;

  2. Big Anklevich Says:

    No, I never have done undersea cave diving. I’ve never even learned to Scuba dive. There was a time when I was a teenager, and some friends and I planned a scuba diving trip. It fell through, and so I never learned. Now that I’m older, I wonder if I would be too freaked out to deal with it. I’m not sure how well honed my Mammalian Diving Reflex is.

  3. Thank you Gerard.

  4. Pretty sure that’s the sexiest teacher moment I’ve ever had.

  5. You did a fantastic job Liz. Really, it was stunning.

  6. the ultimate suicide move is “the prestige”; i saw the ending coming when tesla delivered his machine to angier, but the number of tanks at the end was shocking; imagine having to commit suicide over and over and over…

  7. The Prestige is a good movie.
    For the record, I’m not a suicide advocate.
    I do, however, support a person’s right to self determination.
    We all have to die, and deciding when and on what terms, shouldn’t be beyond the realm of consideration.
    Anyway, The Green Mile, is another good “suicide” tale.

  8. This was another great story and I won’t even get into any morality decisions. Great job. Hopefully I’ll have a story on here at some point.

  9. Thank you Sean.

  10. Solid Production. The story had wonderful details. Very descriptive. This episode went pretty deep.

  11. These last few stories have been stellar. This one in particular. Your banter is also well enjoyed. I could listen to you two (three or four sometimes) for two hours even.

  12. I agree with PoorBrenton. You guys are becoming the Click and Clack of Podcast Fiction.

    …I’m pretty sure thats a compliment

  13. There is another “Sean” posting here, so I’ll start posting as “SCH” to avoid confusion.
    Thank you, everyone, for the positive feed back.
    It means a lot to me.
    I’m very happy with the production.
    Everything was great; voices, sound effects, music, art work; everything.
    I could’t be happier.

  14. Big Anklevich Says:

    Luckily, there’s no other Big Ankleviches posting here. But I just wanted to echo SCH (Sean…uh C. Hayden)’s thanks to everybody for the positive feedback. To SCH as well. I’m really glad that you liked what we did with your story.

    Kev, the big difference between Click and Clack, and us, is that there are a lot of people listening to their show. We got John Smith, and the people who posted comments on here. But you know what…that’s enough for me. If only one person listens then we’ve done our job, and brightened (or more likely darkened) that one person’s day.
