ALIGHT Episode #1

Spoiler Alert! This Book II in a series, so stop reading/listening until you’ve enjoyed Book I in the Generations Trilogy, ALIVE.

M. Savage—or Em, as she is called—has made a bewildering and ominous discovery. She and the other young people she was chosen to lead awoke in strange coffins with no memory of their names or their pasts. They faced an empty, unknown place of twisting tunnels and human bones. With only one another to depend on, they searched for answers and found the truth about their terrifying fate. Confronted by a monstrous enemy, they vowed never to surrender—and, by any means, to survive.

They fought their nightmarish captors and escaped that dungeon. They stole a shuttle, fled the mothership, and flew down to the untouched planet Omeyocan — the planet they were literally made for. Now it is time to explore. Join Em and her friends as they tackle this unknown world and try to make it their own.

Haunted Safeway, Episode #3

A Hunter Hunterson & Sons story

Hunter and Betty Lou are held captive by the two Safeway ghosts, wrapped up in magical baguettes and gagged with breakfast cereal.

FridayFix • ARCHER Spoilercast

ARealGirl here. Have y’all seen ARCHER? If you haven’t, Scott and I make the case why you should. In other words: Do you want ants?

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/164_FridayFix___ARCHER_series_spoilercast.mp3

The show is funny and more than a little over-the-top. In this Spoilercast, we tell you all about the show, talk about the actors, the creator, the writing. Oh, and Scott also drops several inappropriate quotes from the show. Which is appropriate. Literally.

We were also delighted to get a stinger from actor Lucky Yates, who plays Dr. Kreiger on the show (that’s his pic upper right). Yeah, we name-drop (she said, name-droppingly).

THE REPORTER Q&A Episode

THE REPORTER podcast is complete! If you’re the kind to wait until you can binge listen, it’s time for you to get on it.

We didn’t have a ton of questions this time out, but we soldiered on and answered them regardless. We had three questions that came in after we recorded (including two audio questions, dangit). We weren’t able to get them into the episode as Scott is working hard on ALONE, Book III of the Generations Trilogy.

SPOILER ALERT for your faces: as with all of our Q & A episodes, the whole thing is one big potential spoiler for all things Siglerverse™.

FridayFix • Super Bowl Commercials

imagesAs football season officially comes to and end, Scott and A sit down to talk about the last bits of Super Bowl goodness — the advertisements. Since we depend on advertisers to help keep the podcast going, we think quite a bit about content vs. advertising, and no one does that better than the Super Bowl.

We have different favorites, and different ones we hated. But just like everyone else, we can honestly say WTF PuppyMonkeyBaby.

FridayFix • Dystopic Super Bowl 50

This morning io9 published this quiz: Fictional Dystopia or the Super Bowl?, by Katharine Trendacosta. Scott and I recorded ourselves taking the quiz, because a) scifi and b) football.  We had not seen the questions beforehand, so you get our first hand reactions.

I also did not realize until halfway through the quiz that Scott and I were competing, so I demand that his one point lead be recorded with an asterisk.

Yolanda’s search for the killer of Grace McDermot finally comes to fruition. She’s found a store near the building where McDermot was killed, a store that has security cameras monitoring the exit of that building. If those records are intact, Yolanda will have with incontrovertible evidence of who left the building right after McDermot died — and that will give her the killer.
