Sunken Harbor : K-I-S-S-I-N-G

Happy February Everyone! This month we will be enjoying Sunken Harbor: K-I-S-S-I-N-G by Fireside Mystery Theater. I thought this would be an entertaining podcast for the most romantic month of the year . . . and after listening I discovered it definitely wasn’t romantic, but by gosh it sure is fun! And, in order to make the fun last even longer, I will share two episodes this week of the four-part saga, and two episodes on the 19th.

It’s even spookier now than before . . . What is Simon Perdito up to? What…

“Anansi Chronicles,” An Audio Drama by Chad Sterling

“Anansi Chronicles,” An Audio Drama by Chad Sterling

“Sacrifice, is what makes a God great.” This is the first sentence that starts off the in-depth podcast that is the Anansi Chronicles by Chad Sterling. Unlike most stories that are created from the somewhat-crazed minds of their writers, (and this barista includes herself in that category of crazy as well), Sterling instead has gone out to unearth and display stories that were told for centuries around campfires, but over time have been forgotten or hidden. The first episode starts as a god leaves his kingdom in search of stories. Some time later, after Asa the witch is taken, Kamau the Obayifo undertakes a perilous journey to the ‘new world’. In episode two, Kamau undertakes a blood search for Asa. In episode three, history reads directly from the rare document written by the witch Asa…
