Yes, please. More, please

Oh how I've been waiting on this podcast! Yay!!! The only thing I've found to complain about so far is that they really need to buy a better microphone and/or a better place to record that sounds less like the inside of a tin can. However I am only five shows in starting from the beginning – and it sounds as if the sound might be getting better as we go. The stories are just fantastic. I love finding a podcast where I can really trust the editors. As much as I love Clarkesworld, beneath ceaseless guys, podCastle, etc. etc. I have to say that all too often the stories the editors choose are too dark for me. Also I need a story to be a story. Maybe I'm stupid? But the stories that are really atmospheric pieces or character pieces just do nothing for me. Keep doing exactly what you're doing in this podcast!
