PodCastle 515, ARTEMIS RISING: Propagating Peonies

Rated PG-13.

A PodCastle original!

Suzan Palumbo lives in Ontario, Canada, where she is an ESL teacher and writer. Originally from Trinidad and Tobago, her life is a fusion of Caribbean, Indian and Canadian culture. She grows tomatoes in the summer, is a tobogganing enthusiast and can often be found wandering the forest near her home. She reads slush for Shimmer and has had work published at Diabolical Plots.

Nadia Niaz is a writer, academic, creative writing teacher, language nerd and editor who is mostly from Melbourne but still a little bit from lots of other places. When she’s not working with words, she’s usually dancing.

Listen to this week’s PodCastle!

Don't stay in one place for people who want you to wait for them! Take the power back. I love reincarnation stories and I'm happy Arthi was able to break out of the cycle.

I was all ready to hate the second person, but I didn't. Once it loosened up, I was able to settle in. Excellent narration.

All cat stories start with this statement: “My mother, who was the first cat, told me this...”

I didn't expect to like this story, but I did. You could really feel the burden on the main character lift once she decided to leave.
