Escape Pod 604: Given Sufficient Desperation

AUTHOR: Bogi Takács
NARRATOR: Alethea Kontis
HOST: Divya Breed

---

An ice cream cone.

A ceramic mug—brown with a single green stripe around the rim.

A smartphone—I don’t recognise the brand. It’s been a while.

Two sheaves of corn.

A plush caterpillar toy from some cartoon.

A table—rather worn, I’d say Danish Modern, but I’m not sure.

I need a break.


Listen to this week’s Escape Pod!

Um, timestamp 14:22.  My narrator had some gastric distress.  Huh Oh dear. How did that get past the editing chopping block?
Otherwise, an interesting story & world.

Combination of a rather quiet "urp," a substandard pair of earbuds used in a pinch, and some multitasking.

Patience, please, when there's a snafu at your job, I suspect it isn't heard by 10K+ listeners. Wink

In any case, a new, urp-free version is now uploaded.

I don’t mind urps, you all are only human. (Though this is Escape Pod, so who knows...)

I found it very satisfying that an entire alien infrastructure was disabled by one human thinking out of the box. Also that she didn’t out-think them, but out-feeling’d them. Anger can be a tool in the face of complacency.

Ten Thousand?! Now, we need all of those ears to donate to the Pod with a subscription. I love my EA forum.

Yeah, that's an accurate number. Smiley

And I second your proposal. Wink
