    Captain Domenic Highland is bored with space... all the cool stuff, like alien invasions, discovering new and exciting planets, and fending off unknown entites was finished with decades ago... all he has now is his overly positive crew and his karaoke practice, which he clearly is a master off... ... ... ... /endawkwardsilence. Will he ever learn that what he has in front of him is special and unique? Will he ever learn, Appreciation?



    We couldn't put together an in-no-way-affiliated-with-Star-Trek SHORTS episode without enlisting the aid of the amazing guest voices of Joseph & Peter of the V'Ger Please podcast (http://vgerplease.libsyn.com/). If you, like the team at Hail and Well Met, are avid trekkies, you should not pass up the opportunity to listen to Joseph & Peter rip apart Star Trek Voyager in a critical, thought provoking, and downright hilarious way!

    I Slipped Away

    I Slipped Away

    This episode of the SHORTS podcast contains themes, content, language, and the uncanny ability to make you burst into uncontrollable tears, all of which may not be suitable for some listeners - listener discretion is advised.



    Some stories are designed to entertain, others to teach or impart knowledge. Still others, like this one, aim to make an emotional connection and share life experiences through the written (or in this case verbal) word. In this story we meet Robert, suffering from a terminal illness, seeks to understand the journey that his illness sets him on. After meeting a surprising, yet welcomed figure from Robert's past, we begin to understand what facing death might be like as Robert slips away.

    Ostium File #73

    This episode of the SHORTS podcast contains themes, content and language that may not be suitable for some listeners - listener discretion is advised.




    From the writer, creator, and producer of Ostium - Alex C Telander:



    When you made the decision to become a patron of the Ostium Podcast, you were assigned a number, a door unique to you. There was a reason for that. It is possible that Ostium has not always been abandoned, not always population zero. Perhaps at one time there were people - from the future? The past? - who traveled through the doors of Ostium to different places in time and space to learn and educate and record their experiences. Perhaps these recordings are still in existence . . .



    Welcome to . . . The Ostium Files.




    Thanks to the author: Alex C Telander.
