Episode 54: His Poisoner by Sean Eads

Posted in Drama, Horror, Mystery, Sean Eads, Short Story on November 27, 2009 by dunesteef

Jake is sick, wretchedly sick. He is overcome with vomiting spells, his joints feel like they’re filled with gravel, and he can’t even summon the strength to drive home from work. He certainly must have been poisoned. But who would do such a thing? Does he have an enemy?
Don’t answer the question, dude, it’s just a teaser to get you interested in listening to the story.

Also, Big and Rish talk about…anagrams…or is it acronyms?…er maybe that’s palindromes?…well, they talk about something. What could it be? The only surefire way to find out is to listen. Have fun.

Today’s story is produced by Bryan Lincoln, who narrated and edited the tale. Also special thanks to Liz Lincoln, Sarah Slater, John Riendeau, and Abigail Hilton for lending their voices to the story.
