Our Patreon backers make the show possible – join them in support of independent audio fiction at; we’ve got some great perks including early access to all our shows and behind-the-scenes glimpses at what’s coming next.

Today's story co-starred Tal Minear, who also did the sound design and is just a generally wonderful person. You can find their work in many places as a part of many works of audio fiction, but two we particularly love and find hopeful are Sidequesting, a delightful fantasy about avoiding the main plot - in the most interesting ways - and Light Hearts, a queer sitcom about friendship and love and ghosts and working together and - just go listen to both, they're well worth your time and will lift your spirits.

We'll be back soon with our own hopeful stories! Until then, take care of one another and keep finding ways to be a part of the resistance.
