I know, it's my podcast, but I think it's fair to review another author and contributor, right?
Well, Elisson's podcasts are the perfect intro of music, potted down for interesting and twisted tales, and then the final outtro back into the music. A rapid-fire delight for the ears, like some Ziegfeld comedian on the stage or in the bar pulling a fast one as the orchestra tunes up.
The rest do not use musical accompaniment or sound effects, unlike the well-produced Seanachai podcast. Simplicity is the key to this podcast's survival.
Andrew Ian Dodge's delivery may be stilted at times, but the tales are always creepy and leave you wondering what will come next in the serial progression.
Tomer Israeli is just downright disturbing and mad. A sick and secret delight each and every time he manages to churn one out.
Finally, the Weekly Challenges bring together all kinds of authors - silly, sick, sweet, sappy... and my old college pal Planet Z ends up mocking my style by showing me up with an even better version of my own way of looking at the world.
If not for my own stories, listen for the others. They are what makes the podcast what it is.
