The Introverted Indie Author Podcast #13

I had a ton of fun talking about writing, fantasy, the Dragon’s Brood Cycle, and a host of tangentially related topics with Michael J. Sanford on episode 13 of his Introverted Indie Author Podcast. If you’re an indie author, a fan of fantasy or literature in general, or just find listening to writers discuss the creative process enjoyable, this is a great show to check out. Might I also recommend episode #10 with the up and coming fantasy author Mara Mahan.

Angry Elves Force Road Workers to Dig Up Sacred Rock

I love these kinds of stories. Read, enjoy, and excuse me while I go do some research on Icelandic elf mythology.

Parallel Podcast #5

I was excited to be invited back to the Parallel Podcast, hosted by my friend Shelly Brisbin. This time, I spoke with Shelly and Katie Floyd of the Mac Power Users Podcast about writing and the tech tools we use to get our thoughts into bits.

A Circuitous Route

It’s funny how one thing leads to another sometimes, especially on the infinitely connected world of the Internet. A couple of weeks ago, I was listening to Top Four #5, where Marco and Tiffany Arment were discussing their favorite podcasts. Because of their recommendation, I checked out 99 Percent Invisible, which is a great podcast. On episode #178, which is a fabulous examination of the restoration of a castle in Scotland, they included bonus audio introducing me to The Allusionist, which is an amazing and addictive podcast that I can’t believe has flown under my radar for so long. Seriously, it’s wonderful. That show, in turn, brought me at last to Answer Me This, which is a delightfully weird podcast that is almost, but not quite, entirely unexplainable. (Apologies to Mr. Adams.) It’s a comedy podcast that is as hilarious as it is strange, and I love it.

Any of the above shows, including Top Four are worth checking out. I hope you find one you enjoy as much as i enjoy these.

So now I have three great new podcasts to listen to, and each led me to the next like a trail of breadcrumbs through the dark forest of the Internet.

Glorious times!
