Podcasts:

  • Mabel
    • a podcast about ghosts, family secrets, strange houses, and missed connections.
  • The Bright Sessions
    • The Bright Sessions is a science fiction podcast that follows a group of therapy patients. But these are not your typical patients – each has a unique supernatural ability. The show documents their struggles and discoveries as well as the motivations of their mysterious therapist, Dr. Bright.
  • Within the Wires
    • Set within an alternate reality, “Within the Wires” tells stories in the guise of instructional audio programs. Season One, “Relaxation Cassettes,” is a 10 part scripted fiction podcast that takes the form of an audio course on full body relaxation issued by The Institute to you, (the listener) a nameless medical inmate. Who is this narrator? Is she relaying something more than just relaxation techniques, and is she to be trusted? And are there subliminal messages hidden within the music? As listeners move through the relaxation curriculum a deeper and more personal story unravels.
  • Wolf 359
    • WOLF 359 is a radio drama in the tradition of Golden Age of Radio shows. Set on board the U.S.S. Hephaestus space station, the dysfunctional crew deals with daily life-or-death emergencies, while searching for signs of alien life and discovering there might be more to their mission than they thought.
      Tune into your home away from home… seven and a half light years away from Earth…
  • The Bridge
    • It’s an alternate 2016, and Watchtower 10 sits in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, keeping lonely watch over the Transcontinental Bridge. Each watchtower sits hundreds of feet away from the Bridge, broadcasting regular traffic reports to ensure that proper safety precautions are taken. These lighthouses (for cars) are filled with a carefully selected (and very capable) crew.Watchtower 10’s necessary personnel happen to be: a generalist DJ who spends her free time relaying folklore from abandoned parts of the Bridge, her supervisor (who’s only there because he lost a bet), an unfailingly optimistic Bridge Travel Agent, and a groundskeeper who has a thing for romantic comedies.Unbeknownst to the general public (but totally knownst to each watchtower’s crew), these stations also hold a secret that could potentially destroy the world…or save it.

      The Bridge is a fictional serialized fantasy podcast about the monsters we fear, the monsters we can become, and the stories we leave behind.

  • Ars Paradoxica
    • ars PARADOXICA is a love letter to physics, fiction, and the future. It’s a disorienting journey through spacetime and the Cold War. It’s a tome of secret history you stumbled across in a library in the dead of night.It’s an award-winning serial audio drama.When an experiment in a time much like our own goes horribly awry, Dr. Sally Grissom finds herself stranded in the past and entrenched in the activities of a clandestine branch of the US government. Grissom and her team quickly learn that there’s no safety net when toying with the fundamental logic of the universe.

Stuff I’m Reading

  • Dreams from the Witch House – Dark Regions Press
  • Star Wars Galaxy of Fear: The Brain Spiders by John Whitman
  • Star Wars Galaxy of Fear: The Swarm by John Whitman
  • Star Wars Galaxy of Fear: Spore by John Whitman
  • Star Wars Galaxy of Fear: The Doomsday Ship by John Whitman

Fanfic Recommendation

  • A Standard List of Questions Laura JV (jacquez)
    • “Luke’s not gonna lie to us,” Biggs said. He knew Luke — odd, awkward, space-mad Luke — almost as well as he knew himself.
    • It’s mostly a conversation between Biggs Darklighter and Rebel commander about Tatooine and Luke’s intake into the Rebel Alliance, but it’s delightful.
