Three girls, with rhyming names, from a small town in Montana, are celebrating the final day of summer vacation when they witness something amazing. You’ll never guess what is waiting for them over the next rise.

Afterward, in an episode that was recorded on the day that David Bowie passed away last January, Big and Rish talk about Bowie’s legacy, victories, value, and also Bruce Springsteen…and of course Rish quotes an Elton John song.

Special thanks to Jonathan Wilson for producing today’s story, and to Renee Chambliss, Abigail Hilton, Tena Kolokowski, and Wendy Repchin for lending their voice to the episode.

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.

Posted in Katherine Inskip, Science Fiction, Short Story, TWSC on November 24, 2015 by dunesteef

Katherine Inskip has a bit of Biopunk for you. The Company is under attack. Someone’s hacked Factory-9’s fruiting knotweed. Water filtration’s screwed, there’s untreated effluent everywhere…oh, and the plants are oozing blood, apparently. And if all that wasn’t enough, Chris has got a friggin’ tour group to deal with. Could it be worse?

Afterward, Rish and Big talk about Biopunk, not being smart enough for Biopunk, and all the things that they talked about the first time they tried to do the episode and the recorder’s battery died.

At long last, the story that you never thought you’d hear. It’s the lostest of the lost episodes of the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine.

Afterward, Big and Rish apologize profusely to Matthew, and tell the sad, twisted tale of The Empire State Building Strikes Back‘s journey to audio publication. It’s a really sad, twisted tale. And…we’re really sorry this took so long, Matthew.
