While not strictly new, I wanted to remind those few, those foolhardy, those brave readers who pass some of their time with me on this blog that I am currently the audio producer for PodCastle. If you like fantasy fiction, or just listening to good storytelling in general, you should check it out (along with its sister podcasts EscapePod for science fiction and PseudoPod for horror). My favorite PodCastle stories that I’ve worked on include:
- Biographical Notes to a “Discourse on the Nature of Causality, with Air-planes” by Benjamin Rosenbaum
- Another End of the Empire
In other podcasting news, I am the current host and producer for Perishable Theatre Presents, which is the official podcast of my old office manager gig, Perishable Theatre. For those interested in theatre and the performing arts, I hope to make this podcast a compelling and interesting journey that offers a glimpse into what it means to be a small theatre making new and experimental theatre and performance. Episodes will include interviews, radio plays, storytelling, behind-the-scenes recordings, panel discussions, and anything else in the wide array of programming that will be suitable for an audio production. The first episode is up and available on iTunes as well, and the second episode, the first part of an interview with the founder of Perishable, David Eliet, will be posted on May 4th. If you like what we are doing, please leave a comment on podcast site or a customer review in iTunes.
And speaking of Perishable Theatre, at this season’s final Blood from a Turnip on May 21, I will be performing, along with Artistic Director Vanessa Gilbert, my song cycle recounting the (fictional) origin story behind this late-night puppet salon. The show will start at 10 pm and costs $5. If you want a taste of what this might be like, you can check out a few very rough demos that I’ve posted here.
I hope can check out some of my work and would love for you to let me know what you think of it. While many people say they are open to critical feedback but don’t really want it, I assure you, if there is something that you think will help me be a better podcast producer or host, or songwriter, I very much want to hear your thoughts.
Of course, if you just want to tell me I’m awesome, I’ll probably be ok with that as well.
