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.

The fantasy podcast PodCastle ran a nice story this week. In The Woods Behind My House by Nicolette Barischoff features a non-anthro fantasy animal. That mythical beast, along with the somber and sweet coming-of-age story around it, should be of interest to fans of Anthro Dreams.

The Anthro Dreams podcast is on indefinite hiatus. I don’t have the time and focus to keep publising right now, but I’ll still be posting links of interest from time to time.

Tonight I found a neat audio story from writer Donald Jacob Uitvlugt who had a couple of stories here: AD 043 – Irula’s Apprentice and AD 051 – C. Moira’s Choice.

The Cast of Wonders podcast ran The Tale of the White Tiger. It doesn’t contain anthro characters, but it has similar themes to his other stories and is a neat tale of a space pirate following her own moral compass.

The End of October   November 8th, 2012

As you humble editor, I sometimes get the dubious pleasure of showcasing my own work. I have a mood piece I’ve posted to my personal blog which may be of interest.

The End of October by Will A. Sanborn is a love letter to both Autumn and Halloween.

Drabblecast – The Outsider   August 31st, 2010

The Drabblecast, the podcast of strange-fiction has a nice tribute for H. P. Lovecraft’s birthday again this year.

The Outsider does not have animal characters, but it is another wonderful use of anthropomorphism and dealing with The Other. It’s a nice bit of dramatic and sympathetic horror and Norm Sherman does a wonderful job narrating the tale.
