Podcasts – Of Frozen Brides and Jumping Girls   August 19th, 2010

Here’s a couple of audio stories of note I heard recently. As luck would have it, they’re both written by the same author, Will McIntosh.

First on Drabblecast, the podcast of strange fiction is Fantasy Jumper. It’s both disturbing and poignant. Set in a World’s Fair in the not-to-distant future, that playground of the Id shows us at our most petty and banal, but also so vulnerable.

And then from Escape Pod, the science-fiction podcast is Bridesicle, a story about speed dating in the cryogenic age, which is both chilling and ultimately quite moving. The implications on the technology in that world and their impact on society make for some intriguing ideas too.
