    I appreciate you sharing your work with us. It’s an interesting short story. Your use of adjectives is particularily striking, if not jarring at times. I think that suits the story though. There was obviously a lot of effort put into the creation of it. As a side note, I think the deus-ex machina ending works much better in short stories than it does in longer narratives. I wouldn’t worry about it being out-of-place here. I got a good chuckle out of it.

    The idea of this podcast is one that appeals to me (and I’m sure many others who have not yet voiced their opinion on the subject here). If I may offer a suggestion, perhaps you could dedicate some kind of forum for others who are interested in doing something like this as well to have an outlet. Of course, this would be dependent on the relative success of this off-shoot blog and on your willingness to open up the site itself but I do think it’s worth considering. At any rate, keep up the good work.
