Bounce

We can't wait to get old, and then we do, and what was the hurry? Plus, now we have to pay taxes. (This episode was published in Electric Lit's Recommended Reading Commuter. Visit their site to read this story, and other great brief fiction.)

Misunderstand

This week's work of fiction imagines the intimate life of one of this nation's foremost proponents of Orwellian euphemisms. Originally written in 2004, it has it all: bionics, cuddling, soap bubbles, and unfettered rage. (It should be noted that this episode includes adult themes and may induce nausea.)

Cleanse

This week’s stirring narration is provided by The Toothless Prospector, a great friend of the podcast. You won't want to miss this one.

In this episode, a younger version of yourself may only be hoping for a Nutella sandwich, but that doesn't mean you won't be going to prison.

Here's another story. Will it make you have feelings? Will it remind you of that time a parent explained something in unsatisfying terms? Are you afraid to listen to it? You shouldn't be. We promise.

Dance

This story has it all: dogs, prosthetics, mass executions, and constitutional law. Better yet, it can be consumed in the time it takes you to brush your teeth.
