Show Notes
“The Second Coming” by W.B. Yeats was first printed in The Dial in November 1920. “Breaking the Waters” is a PseudoPod original released jointly with Nightlight, a horror podcast featuring creepy tales written and performed by Black creatives all over the world.



The Second Coming
by W.B. Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?




Breaking the Waters
by Donyae Coles

Bootsie is what her mother called her, only her mother, ever. She stood on the train platform, the air daggers of ice against her, cutting through her clothes, leaving her skin raw and frozen.

“Bootsie,” the man called, a hint of pleasure curling on the end of her name. She looked up because only her mother used that secret name, and the man, the Man With No Face, said it just right. Just like mother.

The Man With No Face wore a suit, brilliant white with a gray tie and black shoes that slipped and disappeared into inky pools of shadow from time to time. She stared at him as he approached, his steps sounding hollow and too loud, blocking out the howling wind.

“It’s so nice to finally meet you,” he said reaching out his hand to take hers. She gave it without hesitation. He called her as mother had called her, “She said you would be here. She said to call you that.”

That is a very interesting way the other rounds are being done. Also I am surprised that there are less stories this time. Still looking forward to the 1st!

About Pseudopod / iTunes podcast only current this year?
« Last post by mdelvecchio on September 19, 2019, 12:41:28 AM »
Hey, folks. Why does the iTunes/Apple directory of the podcast only contain episodes from the past year? Found the podcast and like the content but there don’t seem to be many episodes in the directory. The 10-year archive is obviously here on the web but that is less ideal than using a proper podcast app.

I see in the FAQ this explanation:

“Podcatchers (like iTunes) only go backwards so far, due to their own space limitations. It’s usually around 40 episodes.”

...but this is factually not so. iTunes/Apple podcasts is merely a directory of a content provider’s material, fed it to via a syndicated RSS feed. iTunes does not store your podcast media files, or the RSS episodes listing; it merely parses your org’s published RSS feed which provides it with the list of episodes and a URL to each one, hosted on your own server somewhere in the ether.

I subscribe to weekly podcasts that go back over five years, I’m sure you can find plenty of examples too.

https://www.podcastinsights.com/upload-a-podcast/
https://transistor.fm/upload-podcast-itunes-apple/

It’s a shame the complete or majority of the Pseudopod archive is not published in the iTunes/Apple directory via RSS feed, as this is the defacto master directory of podcasts, used by Overcast, iTunes, Apple Podcasts, and practically every proper podcast app and discovery service on multiple platforms. Would really make so much more of the Pseudopod archive available and discoverable to more people, which means more listeners, donors, etc.

Hope you consider updating the RSS feed with the archive. Paypal/Patreon fundraising goal?!

About Pseudopod / recording quality not great?
« Last post by mdelvecchio on September 19, 2019, 12:38:08 AM »
Hey, folks. Started listening recently and enjoy. But when comparing more recently recorded episodes to the older episodes (first couple dozen anyway), it seems like newer podcasts aren’t recorded as well. Newer recordings are often tinnier sounding, like on a laptop mic or in the bathroom with slight echo. Compression distortion is also noticeable. The older podcasts seem to be using better studio mics or whatnot and have higher fidelity.
 
The Thames Valley Catastrophe is a good example, compare it to Bag Man and you’ll hear the difference. Alasdair’s mic/studio in general could use an upgrade.

I agree, Adaz. I also know from experience, though just how much more time consuming these are with logistics.... They're a great treat, but probably a pretty rare one...

This episode has been re-run as PodCastle 592: TALES FROM THE VAULTS, as hosted by yours truly.

Thanks for reminding (me) us how wonderful this story is. I had forgotten it and enjoyed it all over again. Also while making that SAME long drive home, coincidentally. :)

Some stories have underline, some have bold, some have italics, some have a bunch of nice paragraphs that get all jumbled together when there's not an extra space in between each paragraph. MS Word does a great job of adding spaces before and after each paragraph, but the forum does not. Some stories have nice indentations at the beginning of each paragraph. Sometimes that indentation gets carried over to the forums. Sometimes only SOME of those indentations get carried over to the forums. Other times, NONE of the indentations get carried over to the forums. Why? Heck if I know. Do I bother to save all the indentations? Only if most of them have been preserved in the copy/paste.

Do I painstakingly separate out each paragraph to have an extra space in between? You bet your sweet, sweet forumite butt I do. Why? Because legibility is amazing.

Do I want to create a big set of formatting rules so I don't have to do nearly as much work?

NO!

I want people to write and enjoy writing. I want people to submit and enjoy submitting. I want people to read stories and enjoy reading. I don't want people to get caught up in formatting hell.

Okay, sure, it wouldn't be THAT hard for someone to format their story, but where does it end? Are stories not qualified if they're not formatted properly? If someone doesn't pay enough attention to the rules, do they get a lazily copy/pasted story without proper attention to their formatting? Italics, underlines, etc. add depth to the reading experience, inform us how a story might be read aloud, and every story deserves proper treatment.

The contest is about writers established and new coming together in one place to battle to the bloody death in the spirit of friendship and healthy competition.

I'd rather not slap more rules on it.

:)

(but next year may have some _suggestions_ for formatting)
