EP032: Alien Animal Encounters

By John Scalzi.
Read by Stephen Eley, Anna Eley, Scott Janssens, Deborah Green, Jonathon Sullivan and Marilyn Fuller.

Ted McPeak, Community College Student, Jersey City:

Some friends and me heard that if you smoked the skin of an aret, you could get monumentally wasted. So we bought one at a pet store and waited a couple of weeks until it shed its skin. Then we crumbled up the dry skin, put it in with some pot, and lit up. We all got these insane mouth blisters that didn’t go away for weeks. We all had to eat soup for a month. Though maybe it wasn’t the skin; the pot could have been bad or something.


Rated R. Contains profanity, explicit imagery, and hot alien action.


Listen to this week’s Escape Pod!

This one was okay as a collection of micro-stories.  I got a few chuckles out of it, but didn't find it hilarious.  But I prefer stories where I can connect with the characters on some level or another and this one didn't do that.
