That Gets My Goat 236: Thanos Defeats Truman!
So, this is an episode that was recorded just about two years ago (the last week of February 2019) with Rish, Big, and Marshal Latham, in preparation for the release of AVENGERS: ENDGAME later that year. Rish really wanted to talk about the monumental achievement that was AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, and that, for a year, the world was stuck with the unhappy ending of all unhappy endings.
Of course, we talk about THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, and also speculate a bit about where the fourth Avengers film might go. And then Rish lost the file.
But he found it again when it was far too late to be even remotely relevant, but if you've missed us and our conversations, here it is, in all its . . . glory?
Anklecast 45: Party Girl and the Great Texas Arctic Blast Freeze Out of 2021
It's another episode of the Anklecast. I'm going to do one every month, and, well...I barely made it in time, but here we are.
Today's story is "Party Girl." It's one that I wrote just last year as I was working my way towards 300,000 words.
After the story, I made a sort of vlog of my experiences in the Arctic Blast that froze Texas last week. It was an interesting month for sure, especially that week. If you're interested in that stuff, stick around after the story to hear all about it. To see the video elements, go to my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDPrbMMyCaE
Anklecast 44: Active Shooter Training and Date Night
That's right, it's another Anklecast. Today, I bring you a story called "Active Shooter Training" and a second little drabble-esque story called "Date Night". I hope you enjoy them.
Episode 223: The Many Faces of Christmas Eve by Rish Outfield (Outcast 186)
Franklin has a huge crush on Jillian, but up until now she hasn't returned his affection at all. Surprisingly, this Christmas Eve she changed her tune, and suddenly asking him back to her house for Christmas Eve dinner with her family. Turns out that the meal was not what Franklin was expecting...
Afterwards, Rish and Big talk about the story, Broken Mirror contests, and the joys and hassles of Christmas music.
Anklecast 43: Taking A Left Turn
Six Christmas stories on the Dunesteef just wasn't enough, so I decided that I would give y'all one more. It's a story I wrote earlier this year about James, a guy whose Christmas plans get ruined, so he volunteers to work someone's shift at his job to give them a chance at having a merry Christmas. He thinks he knows how his night will end, but someone has a different idea, and it's going to take a left turn before the night is through.
Episode 222: Reiterating Christmas by B.D. Anklevich
Declan's boyfriend, Brooks, is taking him to meet the parents for the first time today at Christmas dinner. He's a little nervous, but it couldn't be as bad as it was when Brooks met Declan's parents at Thanksgiving, could it? Could it?
Afterward, Big and Rish talk about the story, the year we've had, and about having hope for the future.
Great Stories, Great Discussion
I've heard some really cool stories from this podcast over the years, and the discussions by the hosts are insightful and funny too! It's a must listen!
...just CAN'T do 5 Stars b/c too much extra junk
I so want to give five stars because the production is professional and almost faultless and so, so much time must be devoted to this obviously well loved project...but people subscribe and listen to fiction podcasts for the FICTION. Having to troll through episode after episode of host ramblings and other filler that seriously, no one wants—end up being so frustrating that I end up just clicking on a different fiction podcast. This is a shame bc there are so many good pieces in Dunesteef. I wish Big, Rish et al would regroup, take some time off and come back rededicated to just putting out a podcast that people would want to listen to: just the fiction. Just the story, please. Please. But I love you and appreciate all your work so very much. I want to go back and give five.
Some of the best audio fiction I've heard has been on The Dunesteef. Rish and Big are hilarious as well. Anouncer Man keeps them in line.
