Rish's Story "The Sleeping Princess Wakes" On Delusions of Grandeur

Rish here.  Two years ago, I shared a story about young Luke Skywalker, "Beggar's Canyon," on both my own show and the "Star Wars: Delusions of Grandeur" podcast I do with Marshal Latham.  This was right before THE FORCE AWAKENS came out.  And following that tradition, I've got a similar story presented on the show, "The Sleeping Princess Wakes," which we're releasing right before THE LAST JEDI does its thing.

This story, which I talked about in 2015 but wasn't ambitious enough to write, tells a vignette about the teenaged Leia Organa, when she first meets Grand Moff Tarkin, and the seeds of rebellion that are planted within her.   It's fan-fiction, sure, but I hope it's enjoyable, quality fan-fiction.

Anyway, head on over to the Journey Into... website, where the DOG podcast (as Marshal and I affectionately call it) resides, and hear my reading of it, as well as our discussion afterward.  If you dig it, there may be more to come.

TGMG 201: Stephen King Stubble Feature

So, two Stephen King adaptations were released theatrically "recently," and Rish went to both of them. Then poor Big had to too. How was THE DARK TOWER? And IT, the one you've actually heard of?

It's an episode so nice, we charged you twice!*

Spoilers, both of book and movies.

*What? What's that? We don't charge people for That Gets My Goat? What were we thinking?

Rish's Voice on "Campfire Radio Theater"

Rish here. I was recently fortunate enough to lend my voice to another of John Ballentine's impressive audio dramas over at "Campfire Radio Theater."  This one was called "Death and Alchemy," adapted by a short story by the bearded Patrick Moody.

This one be just as delightful as the others I've participated in, which is a zombie plague tale set in Victorian London.  I am always impressed by the soundscape and am often surprised by the emotional resonance these guys wrest from the audio drama format. Makes me want to up my game.


John asked me if I could play a cranky old Scottish man, and I smiled big, thinking of my omnipresent imaginary friend and podcast partner. Unfortunately, once I got that in my head, it became difficult NOT to do a Connery impression for the character. Hopefully, I succeeded more than I failed.

Rish Performs "Perchance To Dream" by David Morrell

Rish here. I got to narrate another lengthy piece over at Far-Fetched Fables, District o' Wonders's Fantasy podcast.  Have you checked them out?

It was "Perchance to Dream," by David Morrell, about a sleep therapist with a rather problematic new patient, one that struggles with more than just managing to sleep through the night.

This one as quite a challenge.  Not for anything technical (although I did have to say "Clonazepam" four or five times), but because I was a bit vague on what it all meant, hence, how to perform it.

So, I did something I've never done before (although maybe I once did asking Aeryn Rudel how to say his name): I contacted the writer to ask his opinion on how to perform it.  I recognized David Morrell's name from someplace, and realized that this was the guy who wrote The Name of the Rose and First Blood.  So, I guess I was lucky he emailed me back.

Even so, I'd be curious to find out what listeners to the story think it all means, since I came up snake eyes.

Here's the link.  Sleep well!

It's the end of an era, as Big Anklevich and Rish Outfield meet one last time to podcast before Big moves away to the Lone Star State. Big talks about his last day at work, and saying goodbye to his daily commute, and a George Harrison song on The Beatles' "Black Album."
