Can you?

Rish Performs "Water In The Desert" By Abigail Hilton

Rish here.  Sometimes I feel like one of those actors who were blacklisted during the McCarthy era, once riding promising careers, now professionally untouchable.  But Abigail Hilton is like Kirk Douglas to my Dalton Trumbo., keeping food on my table till this administration gets replaced.  Hopefully, like Douglas, she also lives to be a hundred and two.

The most recently-published Hilton piece I have narrated is called "Water in the Desert."


Set in the same universe as "Hunters Unlucky," WIND takes place seven years later, with the characters of Sauny and Valla now grown and having an adventure on their own.  Because I had voiced those characters as children, I pretty much got to come up with new voices for everyone in this story, which is fun.

Hopefully, the story (and my reading) is fun too.

Check it out, if you're of a mind to.  Here's the link, over on Audible.

That Gets My Goat 210: Solo, Sweet Chariot

Rish Narrates "Cram Time" On Starship Sofa

So, I got to perform a short story on a podcast, and I thought it turned out well.

Written by Konstantine Paradias, "Cram Time" is a very tongue-in-cheek tale of a couple of students at a school based on H.P. Lovecraft's worlds, and the hijinks they get up to trying to undo the damage that one misused Necronomicon spell causes.

Feel free to check it out over at the Hugo Award-winning StarShip Sofa.


I can heartily recommend the short story, though I admittedly have a bias.  One of the main characters hails from the sunken city of R'lyeh* (from ye olde Cthulhu Mythos), and I decided to give him a fun accent.  The performance was actually a lot harder than most of the stories I do for podcasts.  But if they were all easy, I guess I would never get better.

Rish "Ingrate Old One" Outfield

*Hoo boy, it was no fun to figure out how to say that word, or worse, the language R'lyehian.  Luckily, my boy Norm Sherman used it in a song, so I appropriated that pronunciation.  Thanks, Norm.

That Gets My Goat 209: Infinity Snore


Rish and Big finally talk about AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. Tons of spoilers, right out of the gate, as well as talk about the music, its surprises, what may follow, and plenty of tangents in between.

Note: Wow, sorry about the lateness on this one. The editing was bad enough I nearly called this episode "Infinity Chore."*

*Then I was going to split it into two halves, and the second would be called "Infinity More." I'm still not quite pleased with the title (I considered calling it "Infinity Rapport," since we're in such agreement, and if we had been just a tiny bit more vulgar, maybe "Infinity Whore"). Ah well, better luck next show.

Rish, Marshal, and Renee Talk Han Solo on "Delusions"

Hey there, Rish here.  Marshal Latham has published another of our "Star Wars: Delusions of Grandeur" podcast episodes. This is one we recorded to discuss the character of Han Solo BEFORE he gets his own origin movie in a few days.


The editing on this particular episode was a real beast (for some reason, Renee's lines kept getting out of sync with our lines, despite us all starting at the same time), but I was buoyed up by the feeling that, if this isn't the best episode we've ever done, it's at least in the top two.

That Gets My Goat 208: Nostalgia Player One

Big and Rish talk about a couple of trailers Rish saw, and what he deems "The Nostalgia Wave." Or maybe he didn't. Regardless, Big likens it to the recent READY PLAYER ONE movie adaptation, directed by Steven Spielberg, and directed at . . . ?

Also, murder was the case that she gave the Dunesteef boys.
