I'mma say it: I could not be more confused. I listened, thought maybe I just hadn't paid enough attention, so I read the text on the Podcastle site...and I still have no idea what I just read/listened to.

I guess I'm not the audience for this type of story. I feel like there was something there I should have gotten, but...I did not.

I invent imaginary people and make them have conversations in my head. I also write.

Same.  I also read the text online just in case I had been distracted or something when listening... alas, I am still uncertain what exactly happened. this story feels like and excerpt from a larger tale where everything is explained.  I always felt like I had started in the middle, missing key information.   

the world seems like it might be interesting if I actually understood it.

I was meditatively using a whet stone on a bushcraft knife while I listened to this wonderfully odd tale.

I’m pleased I listened to it after The Threadbare Magician (and that was all good antivenom after watching that cringeworthy Marvel movie, Avengers, infinity War.)

I also didn't quite get it and regarded it as a metaphor of nazi occupation of France and the fate of minorities.
