I was setting up some automated podcast downloading across my devices today and I thought I should share some of the podcasts I have added to my weekly story and idea soak.
Kelly Sosan Bearer and Nicole Fegley recently fired up a new integral podcast, Integral Chicks. It’s engaging, funny, fun, wisdom-rich and deliciously integral. Each of the three guests so far —Marci Davis, Clint Fuhs and Sofia Diaz— have been brilliant and thrilling.
… we decided to create a show and web offering that highlights:
The hilarity of it all…we believe if we can’t laugh, we’re truly f*****ed!
The amazing projects, initiatives, thought, practices, and simple and elegant wisdom that is emerging out of the 20-40ish crowd.
The continued unfolding of the great wisdom in the always-already amazing teachers in the Integral community, particularly as it can be directed to the next generation!
And of course…our Unique Lovin’ Ways!
The free website and podcast will feature fun and useful bite-size segments and exercises that will get you laughing, thinking, and practicing your way to a stronger and freer You. Think Car Talk for the human vehicle. Each show will also have a short interview featuring kick-ass wisdom from the younger Integral generation (the iGens) or advice for the next generation from a wide array of Integral teachers we love, admire, and have a lot to learn from.
Dunesteef, the mad creation of Rish Outfield and Big Anklevich, has quickly become one of my favourite fiction podcasts because of its excellent production values and wonderfully strange selection of short stories. The stories often feature multiple great voice actors and come from all over the speculative fiction field. My favourite story so far was “The Lost Boy Of The Ozarks” by Steve Friedman, so I recommend that as an excellent starting point.
Our focus is on our favorite genres, namely: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror. However, we will not limit our listeners to this narrow classification. If a story is good, but contains no elements of SF/F/H, we will still produce it for our listeners to enjoy. After all, it’s good to have a little variety in one’s diet. While pizza and Coke are wonderful, and good enough for daily consumption (in my mind), even a fatso like me wants an apple or an orange or even (gasp!) a salad once in a while. In other words, The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine hopes to bring you a nice variety of fiction to please your ears and invigorate your mind and soul.
Uvula Audio is a beast of a podcast: it releases full books split into weekly podcasts. Those books are often genre classics from authors such as H.P. Lovecraft, Lester Dent, Jack London, Thomas Merton, L. Frank L. Baum, P.G. Wodehouse, and E.E. Doc Smith. I’m currently enjoying the audiodrama of Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness.
