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.

Dan Coulter has lost his girlfriend, and cannot find anything to look forward to in life any further. He’s considering putting an end to it once and for all. At that moment, with gun in hand, he sees a rather unusual want ad. The only caveat? Whoever responds to this ad must be able to bring their own weapons. Well, at least Dan can fill that part of the ad, right?

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about Neanderthal accents, the BBC series “Doctor Who,” as well as waxing poetic about time travel once again.

Special thanks to Marshal Latham for producing today’s story, and Julie Hoverson for lending her voice to today’s episode.

Episode 80: Open Twenty-Four Hours by Edward McKeown

Posted in Comedy, Edward McKeown, Science Fiction, Short Story on September 4, 2010 by dunesteef

Tars Bokara has the unenviable task of seeking out the unlikely location of the long-lost planet Earth. When he finds it, he discovers a thriving business covering the entire world, with employees eager to please. Want to take a guess what their hours are?

Also, Rish talks (and talks and talks) about his recent trip to Comic-Con. Romance, frustration, and murder attempts abounded, apparently. Somewhere in all this, Big tells him why the show’s never had a Parsec nomination.
