Episode 159: TWSC – In The Gloaming by A. W. Gifford

Posted in A.W. Gifford, Drama, Fantasy, Short Story, TWSC on June 4, 2014 by dunesteef

Gloaming

Sarah feels alone and empty now that both Nana and Papa Bill have both passed on and left her to wend her way through life completely on her own. Could they possibly still have something in store for her to help her be happy?

Afterwards, Rish and Big discuss gloaming, gloaming, and more gloaming. Believe me, it really becomes tedious, and I’m a fan…of gloaming that is.

Special thanks to Jeremy Carter for producing today’s story, to Katherine Inskip for lending her voice to the episode, and to Dave Krummenacher for making today’s art.

Episode 150: Office Visit by Rish Outfield

Posted in Drama, Horror, Live Reading, Rish Outfield on January 3, 2014 by dunesteef

Office Visit

We promised it, and it’s finally here. Just in time for a new year’s New Media Expo.

Rish Outfield presents a “live” full-cast reading of his story “Office Visit.” Not much goes on in Genie and Sally’s little town of McKay, except for riding up and down Main Street on their bicycles. But when a new dentist opens an office there, and people start raving about his service, the girls take it upon themselves to investigate.

Afterward, Big and Rish are joined by the cast, Bryan Lincoln, Renee Chambliss, L. Scribe Harris, Marshal Latham, and Abbie Hilton, to discus their get-together, and the New Media Expo’s pros and cons.

Special thanks to Bryan Lincoln, Renee Chambliss, L. Scribe Harris, Marshal Latham, and Abbie Hilton for lending their voices to the tale.

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.

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!

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!

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:
