The Evercast: A Practical Question

I’ve got something to talk to you folks about, something I’ve been turning over in my brain for some time now. I kicked off my Evercast podcast in 2009 with the full intention of making it a regular series where I’d release fiction projects of all sorts in audio form. And while I definitely believe in that, the last several months (which — you may notice — have gone by without an Evercast episode) have taught me that it may not necessarily practical for me to do that on any kind of a regular basis. I’ve got an enormous amount of things to work on in every other aspect of life — from my job, my theater group, my family, my duties as a “Geek Pundit” for CX… to say nothing of completing the actual writing the Evercast was supposed to feature in the first place.

As I look at other writers who podcast, I notice that few of them do it with the frequency I hoped for with the Evercast. Most of them do it in spurts, then revert to other projects (often other kinds of podcats) before returning months or even years later with the next fiction podcast. Only Scott Sigler seems able to do it week after week, 52 times a year, and he’s a bloody madman. (So is Grant Morrison, of course, which makes me wonder if the biggest obstacle to creative success is my thick, wavy head of hair. But I digress.) And even Sigler has two other shows on his feed. (Both related to his fiction, true, but still.)

I don’t want to throw out the Evercast. It’s a fun and useful way to put stuff out there on those rare occasions I’ve got something worth putting out. But it seems silly to me to continue to support a second full-time podcast feed that only gets used a few months out of the year.

So here’s my thought: why not put the Evercast episodes — when they come out — on my existing 2 in 1 Showcase feed? I’ve usually got enough extra space each month that I could fit it in easily, and for those of you who download either show directly either here or at CX Pulp or Facebook by clicking the posted link, you won’t notice any difference at all. The only people who would notice would be those people who subscribe to the shows via iTunes or another podcatcher, and I strongly suspect that the majority of the Evercast audience is already comprise of Showcase listeners (although the reverse does not necessarily hold true).

I’m not putting this up for a vote or anything — my podcast feed isn’t a democracy — but I would like your input. If a lot of people are violently opposed to this for some reason, I may reconsider. But if the strongest negative reaction is more along the lines of “whatever,” you may hear the next strains of the Evercast theme through the Showcase feed.

The Future (Evercast #44)

It’s been a while since I talked at you, friends. This week, in a mini-episode, I ponder the future of Other People’s Heroes, and here’s your chance to help shape that. Plus — where will you be this weekend? Blake and the 2 in 1 Showcase boys are going to be at Wizard World New Orleans!

Toyetic (Evercast #43)

It’s time once again, friends, for Blake’s annual Christmas short story! If you’re a regular visitor to EvertimeRealms.com, you already read this year’s story on Tuesday. But whether you read it or now, I hope you enjoy today’s audio version of my Christmas tale, “Toyetic.” This year’s yarn is about a young boy who has spent half the year growing frightened of something Dark in his closet, until Christmas comes and he realizes the only thing he really wants is a protector. This is a Tale of the Curtain, guys, but don’t worry — even if you’ve never read any of those stories, you can still enjoy this one.

It’s here, friends, the giant-sized grand finale of Other People’s Heroes!

The last battle begins now!

Other People’s Heroes: Issue Nineteen (Evercast #39)

Last week, a big boom rendered Josh Corwood only half a man — literally. As he bleeds out on a rooftop, his only hope for survival may be in far distant Simon Tower. Can he possibly get there in time? And since there won’t be an episode next week, let’s wish each other all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
