Thank you

Thank you. For teaching us the magic of stories when we were little and for rekindling that magic when, as grownups now, we really need it most.
Story suggestion: the long goodnight of violet wild. By catherynne m valente.
It’s a story set inside each component of the visible spectrum.
Fun read.

A little escape

These stories have been so enjoyable to listen to - a variety of genres, interesting topics and an engaging presentation. Every episode is a nice little break from my reality that I really enjoy. Story idea - something from David Sedaris, maybe Nuit of the Living Dead or Me Talk Pretty One Day?
