Episode 215: Catastrophe Baker and the Siren of Silverstrike by Mike Resnick

Posted in Comedy, Mike Resnick, Science Fiction, Short Story on February 14, 2020 by dunesteef

silverstrike

When Mike Resnick passed away on January 9th, Rish and Big knew they had to make one of his stories their next episode. Years ago, he’d sent them out a huge batch of Catastrophe Baker stories so that they could continue the series on the show. What better way to remember him than to put one of his creations out for fans to enjoy?

Catastrophe Baker makes a trip to Silverstrike and while he’s there, he attends a carnival. It’s pretty ho-hum until he gets summoned to the tent of the Siren of Silverstrike to see the show that everyone is talking about.

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about Mike Resnick and what he has meant to the science fiction community, the podcast community, and the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine. We’ll miss you, Mike.

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.

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.

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.
