Good news! I finally figured out the CSS issues that have been vexing me for the past few weeks. So it's with a fair degree of confidence I tell you that in 2 weeks time, I should have a brand new newsletter format and a new website!

But that does mean some costs are increasing. So if you've the means to help contribute a teeny-tiny amount each month (or more—I'm not stopping you), please consider supporting The End. It makes a huge difference.

Let's get into it, shall we?

Evo's notes: There are a few shows that can claim to have shaped modern audio fiction, and this is one of them. Excellent writing, heartfelt acting, and a just-right soundscape make for a near-perfect combination.

The Dog Is Dead

Narrated multigenre anthology from podcastgod

It's like the Twilight Zone for an optimist's heart. Every episode starts with the same line, but becomes a totally different story. And yet, they’re all intertwined. Can you find the connections?

Evo's notes: Consumed during a road trip a couple of year ago, this show kept my attention from the dreary desert. Each episode has a totally different feel, but—if you're paying attention—you'll notice the threads.
