    The Witch Machine

    The Witch Machine

    For the last few rounds, the Witch Machine had been making a slight groan. But now that groan turned into a whine and an ominous rattle. We all recoiled as the whine rose to a moan and then a keening howl. Sometimes mechanical-sounding, sometimes almost human.

    The Dweefs

    “Mr Carter,” he began, tossing down a manila file folder. “Do you know who I am and why I’m here?”
    “You’re the Shrink.” Carter didn’t make eye-contact. “You’re here because the Judge wants to know if I’m crazy.”
    At least he was lucid, the Shrink thought. It made for a pleasant change of pace.

    DO YOU NEED? DO YOU NEED?

    I turned off the light on my phone and sat there, down in that space. In the utter blackness, in the cool, hidden from the pressures of the world. There were no draining bank accounts down there, no stalled careers, no worlds spinning out into madness and loss. There was nothing. And that was a relief. Down there it was safe, contained, cool... empty.

Great story telling!

I sometimes hate that my free time to listen to the wrong station is bedtime. I always set my timer to stop playing before the end of an episode so I can find my way back to the story. Excellent writing and casting, both funny and poignant. Sometimes caustic and crude. Give the group a try. It’s nice to have an array of podcasts in your pocket to fit your moods. Add this one to your queue.

The RonK Station

Maybe one of the narrators has some regional dialect, but I’ve started to notice the way he’ll end D-words with Ts, G-words with Ks, and S-words with something of a hiss.

I first noticed it in the episode with the mold.

“The whole fridge was coveret in molt,” he said. She flincht, her stomach turnink. “That’s so gross,” she said.

I tried tuning it out, changing headphones, playing it at 1.5×, but it’s hard to ignore—especially when it sounds like it’s weirdly intentional, because I’ve heard runnink, going, sayink, drinkink, and singing in one sentence.

Another narrrraaaaator likes to reeeeead things in a pohhhhet voice… and by the time the rhyme she finds / has helped her find a metric pace / to read the line as if it is / some-thing that should be read just like / this I have gotten relatively / lost and I don’t quite recall / how the paragraph original / ly started.

And sometimes they all read words with odd emphasis or pronunciation, like “settlement” as set-la-mint?

The quirks of speech and pro-noun-ciation are just so off-puttinK to me I just can’t relackxs ant enjoy it.

Not the best out there

The stories are usually decent, if predictable, but the narration leaves much to be desired. One pronounces every single word ending in “ing” as if it ends with a K; thinking becomes thinkink, happening becomes happenink. It grates. Another reads each story and sounds like Daria’s mother telling ghost stories on their camping trip. It’s hokey and corny and poorly executed. Being free it’s worth your time, I suppose, but…as I said, after a while, it grates.
