    A special thanks to my Australian shepherd, Sochi, for providing the voice of Dog this week.

    Also an extra special thanks to Michael Medler, this episode’s special cameo and guestbook contributor with his poem Dungeness Wood. Michael writes because Nature wills him to it. He recently left a dystopian suburb of Seattle and retreated to the knee-hills of the Olympic Mountains, cut the cable, and bought whiskey. Now he finds inspiration from deep woods, less so from demons. You can find both of his poetry volumes on Amazon.

    This episode’s guestbook entry is an excerpt from Pacific Northwest: Daydreams and Paintings by Mary B. Truly!

    Mary B. Truly has been painting for a while.
    It’s how she herself and others smile.
    She has traveled the country from Maryland,
    Mountains trees, rivers, sea, and sand.
    Seeing the states far and wide,
    Letting nature be her guide.
    When inspiration finders her, she must act soon.
    It may come from anywhere, under the sun or moon.

    Huge thanks Mary, for letting me read your work aloud! You can find Mary’s books and artwork at marybtruly.com.

    An extra special thanks to Michael Medler, this week’s guestbook contributor, podcast supporter, and the inspiration for this episode’s cameo. Michael writes because Nature wills him to it. He recently left a dystopian suburb of Seattle and retreated to the knee-hills of the Olympic Mountains, cut the cable, and bought whiskey. Now he finds inspiration from deep woods, less so from demons. Though they are there. His poem “Reflection” comes from his poetry collection Boundary Points, and both of his poetry volumes can be purchased here on Amazon.

    Special thanks to local poet and woodcrafter, Chris Kleinfelter for letting me read his poem “Buzzing Well.” Chris has been writing college for the last 30 years since he returned to college at age 40, which brought out his love for writing. After winning a poetry award in Thoughts Beyond Insanity, the campus literary journal, he has been writing ever since. His work has been featured in Harrisburg Review, The Villager, Tidepools Magazine, Sixfold Poetry Summer 2020, and Corona Global Lockdown as well as the Olympic Peninsula Writers Association 2022 anthology. You can find more of his work on his poetry blog poetinplace.com, his other prose blogs Adventures in Antiquing or Seward Adventures, or his YouTube channel. When he is not squeezing words into poems, he spends his time woodworking. Thanks for working with me, Chris!

    Special thanks to an extra special guest book contributor, Hannah Wright. Hannah Wright is a storyteller, a chemist, and the writer and director of the fiction podcast Inn Between, which can be found at TheGoblinsHead.com. When she's not writing, she's playing Dungeons & Dragons, watching birds, or listening to audio drama. She has never once been cool and does not plan to start anytime soon. Hannah is here to make friends and drink coffee, and she's all out of coffee.

The perfect little weird cup of tea

I love this podcast. There’s only two episodes so far and already I find myself hooked on this little world. Gabriella seems like the nice girl you grew up next door to, who’s suddenly found herself in a job that’s…strange. But who hasn’t had strange jobs before, right? And a girls gotta pay her student loans. If cozy cottage-core vibes had a baby with Welcome to Nightvale, this podcast would be its lovechild; It sounds like a beautiful place and makes you wish you’d majored in botany, with the lingering feeling in the back of your head that something about all of this is odd. And then, of course, it does get a little odd. Give it a listen, you will not regret taking a stop at The Inn between.
