I have enjoyed all of their podcasts and recomend the support of this organization of dedicated authors and voice actors.

Lifelong enthusiast ,

Top-notch

This recent story, The Last Banquet Of Temporal Confections (two parts) is a favorite of mine and masterful tale, combining fantasy and culinary arts (two things dear to me). Thank you, I very much appreciated this story.

How is it relevant to the story wether or not the writer is lgbtqwhatever?

Why do you, as a host, doing an intro feel it important to specify the author’s sexual attraction in the author bio? Does it somehow effect the story’s premise or plot? Or am I missing something?
