    Introducing: The Activity Continues: The Villisca Ax Murder House.

    Introducing: The Activity Continues: The Villisca Ax Murder House.

    Introducing: The Activity Continues: The Villisca Ax Murder House.
    This week I’m bringing to you, an episode of my other podcast, The Activity Continues.
    The Activity Continues is a podcast where a couple of dorks (Amy & Megan) chat about the TV show, The Dead Files and other creepy shit. Each week we each choose an episode to dissect and chat about.
    This is our 13th episode, but not to worry, they are not linear and you don’t have to listen to any others before this one to get what the show is about. This episode was recorded on April 10, 2022 and aired on The Activity Continues feed on April 15, 2022.
    Please give it a listen and I hope you enjoy it. If you’re interested in more, such as hearing part two, follow us on any podcast app https://pod.link/1605227442 or on the podcast’s website: https://www.podpage.com/the-activity-continues/
    **content warning this episode is full of discussions of some really yucky stuff: Child murder, sexual acts and brutal murder. Proceed at your own discretion**.
    Wow, this episode was a doozy.
    You will hear us reference a listener story in the intro, but we ended up cutting the episode into two parts. So that part will be in Part 2. The next one will be out next week.
    So grab your hankies, hop in the Cadillac, and meet us in the Murder House where… The Activity Continues.

    Content Warning:
    This is a general content warning, many of the episodes of the TV show talk about murders, some even involving children. So that may come up in our conversation as well. So please proceed with that in mind. But if you already watch The Dead Files you’ll be prepared.

    Also, while Amy and Steve's swears are bleeped on TV, ours are not.

    The Eyes Have It by Philip K. Dick

    The Eyes Have It by Philip K. Dick

    Today’s story is called The Eyes Have It, and the author is Phillip K. Dick. It was written in 1953. While he’s known for science fiction stories, this one has tinges of that, but is really just poking fun at the English language. I particularly identified with this one as I tend to respond to language in this way sometimes too. It’s not enough to know what the writer was trying to say, for me. If they write something that I can perceive a different way, I will find it, point it out, and usually be told, “Oh you’re being too literal, you know what they meant.” Whatever, that’s how my brain works. Please enjoy and let me know if your brain works this way too, we need to stick together.

    Afterward: Chapter 4 (final)

    Afterward: Chapter 4 (final)

    For this series, I am reading to you the short story “Afterward” by Edith Wharton. This story was written in 1910. It was first published in the 1910 edition of The Century Magazine. It is an ironic ghost story about greed and retribution. This is my favorite so far of the ones I’ve done.
    Happy Spooky Season!

Love this!

I love this show!! The episodes are a fun break in the day - not so long that it takes away from your day but not too short. Amy has such a soothing voice. It feels like she’s reading directly to me 10/10 would recommend

missyObean ,
