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 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.

Drabblecast – Local Delicacies   December 3rd, 2014

Breaking the silence after too long a hiatus, here’s a link of interest, a strange and entertaining audio story that fans of strange and alien animals may find interesting.

Drabblecast, the podcast of weird fiction, ran Local Delicacies  by  Fran Wilde. The tale shows a resourceful restaurant manager dealing with some rather unique and very challenging customers.

 

The podcast returns after a longer than expected hiatus.

Tonight’s story is a wonderfully thoughtful science fiction piece about the discoveries and interactions of alien worlds of alien worlds both terrifying and beautiful.

Escape Pod – Good Hunting   November 18th, 2013

Escape Pod, the science-fiction podcast, brings the compelling story Good Hunting by Ken Liu.

This audio story is a haunting speculative fiction tale set in early 20th century China, a world in transition between old magics and new one. It features both fox demons and steampunk technology and a beautifully sad character-drama plot.
