Catching up on listening to podcasts, I heard this gem tonight from Escape Pod, the science fiction audio magazine.

Bioluminescent Memory by Victorya Chase was featured in February’s 2nd Annual Artemis Rising run, a celebration of women and non-binary authors. The story is speculative fiction with character drama and shared comfort from past trauma. The cat in the tale is more of the magical variety than anthropomorphic, but is definitely worth the read and listen.

It was also really nice to hear Serah Eley return to the podcast to narrate this story. I appreciate all she did all those episodes ago to start up Escape Pod and their sister podcasts, and it was like having an old friend return for a visit.
