Rish here. I have to admit, when I got a message from Marshal Latham that my work on "The Black Bird" could be heard over on his podcast . . . I had no idea what he was talking about. Had I recorded a story for him so long ago that I no longer had any memory of it? What is this, Starship Sofa?
But going over to "Journey Into..." reminded me. David Barr Kirtley did a sort of mash-up of "The Raven" and THE MALTESE FALCON, and Marshal had asked me if I'd voice Sam Spade.* I'm always happy to a) help out on other podcasts, and b) try new voices, so I sent the lines over, promptly forgetting it had ever happened. Chalk it up either to early-onset dementia, or middle age a-hole-ism, I don't know which.
Anyway, check it out over at this very link, and enjoy!
*He later had me re-voice it because I sounded so whiny and obnoxious. I didn't dare tell him that I had somehow mistakenly voiced the character as David Spade the first time through.
