Stories that pull you in and make you think

I love this podcast. The stories that Nathan brings in are always interesting. The mixture of the actual story and Nathan's style of presentation always pull you into each story and when you leave, you come out thinking a bit differently.

Love the Range of Stories

It's so great when I refresh my podcatcher and see a new story from The Untold Podcast/Nathan James Norman. Not sure how he manages pastoring a church and producing a podcast of this caliber, to the point that, like reviewer mandokysoto mentioned, I totally want to know what happens next for several stories, "Space Wings", "Standoff", and "The True Light" to name a few. Thank you NJN for capturing my imagination with speculative fiction :D

Love this podcast

If you haven't gotten around to listening, please do. The authors that N.J. Norman highlight each month are some fantastic authors. The short stories are fun, interesting, and in many cases, leave you wishing for more (like this month's story "Space Wings"). But the short story format is perfect to highlight the authors talents. If there was one critique I would give, it's that it's a once a month podcast. I could handle more offerings a month. :)
