Episode 174: Ship Of Fools by David Farland (Part 1)

Posted in David Farland, Fantasy, Horror, Novelette on September 3, 2015 by dunesteef

Ship of Fools

David Farland brings us the tale of a group of jesters; Erstwhyle, Baron Blunder, and Amilee; making a long journey to the dark and forbidding Castle Crydon to compete in a contest of fools that could fetch them a purse of 1,000 guldars. Could they possibly win? And if they win, might they still lose?

Afterward, Rish and Big surprisingly talk very little, but after all it’s only the end of part one, they’ll surely gabble on for hours after part two, so if you like that sort of thing, fear not.

Special thanks to Renee Chambliss, Graeme Dunlop and Ben Gifford for lending their voices to the story.

Episode 165: TWSC – The Short Life And Slow Death Of Timmy Van Lowe by Bryan Lincoln

Posted in Bryan Lincoln, Fantasy, Horror, Poem, TWSC on October 9, 2014 by dunesteef

Timmy Van Lowe

An entity is pulled from its slumber, to perform its duty. What is that duty? It’s pretty distasteful. Listen to the dark poem by Bryan Lincoln that was good enough to force Big and Rish’s hand, and make them run their least favorite literary genre on their show.

Afterward, Rish and Big curse Bryan’s name, and vow to avenge the wrong he has done to them. They also praise his good looks, and flounder about pathetically while trying to interpret just what happened in the poem. Luckily, Sonny See was there to rescue them.

Special thanks to Sonny See for producing and narrating today’s story, as well as providing the episode art.

MurraysChineseCuisine

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.

Afterwards, it’s Stephen King vs. George R. R. Martin, planners vs. pantsers, and Hulk vs. anti-vaccine folks.

Takeover day

In our second episode recorded live at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas, Rish Outfield presents “Overtaken.” It’s Takeover Day in the town of Traysi, Arizona, and Nicole and Barry Dugger are unfamiliar with this particular phenomenon. But that doesn’t necessarily make them exempt from it.

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.

Episode 144: Unholy Womb by Steven E. Wedel

Posted in Horror, Short Story, Steven E. Wedel on June 14, 2013 by dunesteef

Unholy Womb

A boy picks up a couple of pumpkins in preparation for Halloween, only to find out they are part of a bizarre and deadly Halloween trick.

In a bit of a different episode than usual, Rish shares his reading of Steven E. Wedel’s “Unholy Womb,” the title track of the audiobook he recently narrated for Steven’s collection “Unholy Womb and Other Halloween Tales,” soon to be available for purchase on Audible.

Afterward, Big and Rish talk about producing this story, its potential for expansion, its villain, and say goodbye to their traditional recording location: Big’s kitchen table. If you listen closely, you may even find out which is worse: a band calling a later album by the band name, or a sequel or prequel naming itself by the original title.

Special thanks to Steven for allowing us to use his story on the show.

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.
