While possible inspirations or influences behind these stories range widely--
from the crisp Twilight Zone/ voice of Rod Sterling style "host", Victoriana 1895, to a new wave Chun Li (Street Fighter) & other plucky heroines most any one can root for--
the original twists Hahn relishes upon them is exciting. Each character and nuance is vividly etched, whether dryly hilarious, satirically cheeky, or poignant.
The podcast form Hahn employs is sheer pleasure, close your eyes and savor...the well acted narrative and dialogue, the creepy sound effects, etc, but these stories would be stirring in a variety of forms, and definitely bear repeat listenings.
