PodCastle Metacast #2

PodCastle editor Rachel Swirsky introduces three new features:

Flash Fiction Fall: wherein a flash episode will be aired once a week along with the feature episode, beginning with a set of four fables by Peter Beagle. Flash fiction fall will let PodCastle work through the archive of flash episodes which we’ve inherited from Escape Pod, getting the stories off the shelf where they’ve been gathering virtual dust and out where they belong – before the listeners.

Holiday-themed stories: for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and election day.

PodCastle Giants: special long episodes that will air once every three months, giving fantasy the room it needs to luxuriate.

    Sounds great, I enjoy Escape Pod, but I miss the flash fiction and I wosh they would experiment more and try to do more holiday themed episodes (same goes for pseudopod). Looking forward to some novel ideas and good stories!

    Yehh I have introduced a lot of people to escape pod, pod castle and pseudo pod and everyone I have introduced loves what you guys do..

    Iv got to say listening to stories 3 times a week .. sometimes more I also like podiobooks who I found out about through a link from escape pod a long time back ..

    so yeh thanks Mr E.. I love that ur constantly supplying ur audience with new things Stories, the existence of Polly as an expectable pastime and generally good quotes.

    The stories I listen to are something I look forward to.. a lot .. Like a beer after a hard days graft or a slice of cake at a party.. But stories non fattening and actually good for you..

    As you can probably tell… im a fan..

    I look forward to flash works and the giants..

    Just wondering if you are creating hour long casts if you could offer it in 2 parts as well as a big chunk..
    Then its like a morning an afternoon commute.. Which would be I think double plus good

    All the best

    Just wanted to say I REALLY appreciate the rating system you’ve applied (G, PG, and so on). That helps me sort the stories that I want to listen to the most–big thanks!

    I also like what you’ve done with the minis and the fact that you’re now producing a longer work on occasion.

    Excellent all around. Thank you!
