This is a brand new podcast for Young Adults featuring fantasy and science fiction stories. The production is great and the host seems really cool. (He's got a very smooth Australian accent. It's great.)
Anyway, I've loved the stories. I hope they gain lots of followers! They deserve it so far!
This is a great young adult sci-fi/fantasy production. The stories are well chosen and beautifully hosted and narrated.
It's fast becoming one of my favorite literary podcasts.
Thank you guys for doing such good work!
I have been a listener to Podcastle, Pseudopod, and Escapepod for ages... and my favorite episodes have always featured Graeme Dunlop. I did a google search yesterday, and was delighted to discover this podcast. I am, at this writing, halfway through all the available episodes. The quality of the voice work is superlative, and I like the "flavor" of the stories. Please keep doing what you're doing (on all sites). There is a wonderful consistancy to the overall quality of this podcast, and I love the whimsy and surprise of all the stories I've hear thus far. I am now off to email all my friends to stop what they are doing and download! NOW! So stop reading and start downloading!!!...
