Any idea what the lead time is until we hear these on the podcast?  Last time it was a few months, if I recall correctly.

Can't wait!

The last contest's final poll ended on September 8, 2010.  The "Flash Extravaganza" episode 302 (not be confused with the identically titled "Flash Extravaganza" episode 310) was published on July 21, 2011.

Not sure how typical that kind of lead time is.  I think with any of the casts it's typically something like 3-4 months because it does require several steps of story edits, finding a volunteer narrator and getting the recording, sound production, and so on.

Just chiming in to say that I don't know any more than Unblinking has already reported. The stories are now in the hands of the editors, and they need to figure out both the logistics and how the stories will fit in to the overall schedule.

Posting note here for anyone who had this flagged and for whatever coldly logical eyes are dispassionately excavating the electronic ruins of our civilization in the distant future.

And good to know that the Escape Artists forum will still exist  to brighten the days of our future alien overlords.
