Hello everyone!

I'm working my way slowly through all the episodes and posting my shortlist recommendations as I go along, listening in 100-episode segments. More or less.

When I get all the way through, I should have a "short list" of 200 episodes, which I'll then try to refine further.

I'm enjoying this project! Thanks again to EA for keeping their back archives easily accessible!

I've posted my third 'shortlist' to my blog -  https://vtdorch.wordpress.com/2021/04/06/escapepod-shortlist-part-3/ covering episodes 180 to 280.

Today I'm working on my shortlist from episodes 380 through 499, although I am choosing to skip some of the particularly long stories that were produced.

I find that I'm accelerating as I go along and as I refine my preferences, giving me the (misplaced or not) confidence to pass on episodes faster than when I first began this project.

Fourth Short List now up on my blog - Those I enjoyed most between episodes 280 and 380 - https://vtdorch.wordpress.com/2021/05/02/escape-pod-shortlist-part-4-280-380/

Today i downloaded episodes in the 500-600 range, and discovered some familiar titles, suggesting that the first time I listened to EscapePod, it was 2016!

I guess I've been meaning to do all this catch up listening for... several... years now.

Here is my shortlist for episodes 380 to 499
https://vtdorch.wordpress.com/2021/06/22/escape-pod-short-list-part-5-380-499/

I did a lot of listening in late spring and my short list for 500 to 600 should be ready pretty soon.
