Since no-one ever reads the massive blocks of text people post about what they really like, I can say whatever I want without fear of reprisal. I like eating babies, tossing old shoes at people at shopping malls, and using my inflatable woman as a decoy to ride in the car pool lane.

Crocheting, huh?  And bowling?  Nice.

I'm a moderator here .... in prison, most likely, since it's kind of illegal to eat babies.


Whew!  I'm really glad I held back on the drivel!

Hello everyone:)

   I'm Alasdair Stuart, although everyone up to and including my wife and family simply calls me Al.  I'm a freelance writer and journalist and I tend to listen to Escape Pod both as background to my work (The TV has shiny things moving quickly.  It's too distracting.) and as inspiration.  There are some astonishing writers out there and I'm delighted that Escape Pod and Pseudopod have given me the opportunity to discover their work.
   I grew up in a house filled with music and BBC Radio 4 and for years couldn't actually sleep without the radio in the background.  I'm fascinated both by radio drama and the opportunities presented it by podcasting and I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens next.

And...I promise not to make the place look messy.

Hi! I'm J.R. Blackwell. I am a writer and photographer and I live in the Philadelphia area. I love science fiction, podcasting, taking pictures of pretty women, taking pictures of pretty men, freak shows, costumes, noodles, writing, robots, singing with a really great orchestra, men named China, women named Mur, boyfriends named Jared, long socks and big stompy boots.

Hi, I'm Paul. I've been listening to Escape Pod since the beginning and loving it all the way.

I live in Scotland and I'm working busily to bring my own SF/F audio script out as an audio drama serial. I don't get paid to do that however, I get paid to do "clever" stuff with computers at a local college.  I'm also involved in amateur dramatics.

Currently doing my best to delurk, and stay that way.

Hey Bdoomed. I'm glad you like Voices of Tomorrow! I like recording the episodes. It's cool to know that there are people who are out there that like what I'm doing.

. . .I guess that means I should put up this weeks episode then. . .

Hello to all,

I'm a 23 yr old male and I study economics in Mannheim (Southern Germany).

Normally I'm more of a lurker but this forum is so cuddly I decided to post once or twice. (and I am currently doing a mindnumbingly boring internship, so I've got nothing better to do.)

Hello everyone. 

I knew that if I looked long enough I'd find the introduce yourself thread.  I have been listening to Escape Pod for about six months, but I started at the (almost) beginning and don't have much free ear time, so it's taken me this long to catch up.  Well, almost catch up, I'm on episode 91.  Somehow, the episodes keep coming out.  Since I'm current now, I figured I could participate in the ongoing conversations about the episodes, so it was time to log into the forums.

I'm not, uh, all that interesting but I love SF, specially short stories, and I've been amazed at how much of Escape Pod's content I've really, really liked.  Thank you, Steve.  I'm also very opinionated, and will soon begin throwing around my reactions and analysis of stories as though they count.

(I also mumble mumble put a story in to the flash contest but found the idea of making an account and voting for myself too nerve-wracking to actually do.  Now that voting on my group is closed, it's safe, of course).  I love the idea of story as promo.  It's going to be great.  Good luck to all of you who have entered.

Some of my favorite Escape Pod stories have been "The Craphound", "L'Alchimista", and "Authorwerx".

I probably should have gotten to this thread before posting over a hundred times and becoming the number 6 lurker on the forums.

My name is William Peters, and I'm 1819(Edit: Updated) and a (on high school credits that carried over, didn't skip a grade) sophomore in college. I'm originally from DC (born in Foggy Bottom, if that means anything to any of you) and raised there my entire life up to the point where I moved to NYC for college. Uh... I'm trying to double major in English and Computer Science... The handle is a butchering of heretic and infidel from my militant atheist days freshman year of high school (I thought the A sounded better, plus the whole greek thing). And yeah, that's about it.

The SF/F addiction goes unstated. Except I just stated it. Hm. Damn Paradoxes.

Almost six years now. Married a Berlin girl and she brought me here.

Are you originally from Mannheim or is that just for school?

Hi!
I'm a 42 year-old married father of one that lives in Louisville, Ky.  As I said in another post somewhere, I'm the lamest excuse for and SF&F fan in the multi-verse - mostly because of what I haven't seen or read. I have always loved the genre (my love of reading started in the 2nd grade with the Narnia books) but I have so little free time, that I haven't been able to read nearly as much as I want to. I've been playing D&D (with mostly the same people) since around 1980 and most of my creative energy has been channeled into that.  Most of the stuff I've read in the last few years has been classic SF short stories - Fred Pohl, Alfred Bester, Asimov...  I think the most recent genre book I have read is "The Diamond Age."  I discovered Escape Pod back in November and have been addicted ever since. I've never taken a crack "real" writing. My writing career officially started when I entered the Escape Pod Flash contest. I decided that if I ever make it big, I'm going to refer to myself as "the old beast that came from Escape Pod."
Also, I am/have been a foster parent and am a cancer survivor (10 years now). Someday I'll write about each experience.

Sometimes I have to try hard not to take a "let me impart wisdom upon you" tone in my posts (not about writing, there are very nice people in the forums who know WAY more about writing then I'll ever know) or a "things I wish I had known when I was younger" post. If I had to say something, I'd say this: "Love your children. They are the greatest things you have in your life and you are the greatest things they have in their lives"  and "If you smoke, quit.  If you don't smoke, don't start. I've had cancer, though it was not smoking related, and having cancer sucks."
Ok, I said it.

Welcome!

Oh, so this is where the introduce yourself thread has been hidden!  I've been looking all over for it.  Maybe this should be stickied?

I'm Hilary Moon Murphy, mom, librarian and fantasy writer.  My best friend Bret introduced me to Escapepod months ago, so I'm an unabashed fan.  He's also the one who pestered me to submit to you, Steve.

My story, "The Grand Cheat" was accepted (pause while Hmm checks watch) four hours ago.  I look forward to seeing what the Escape Artists do with it.

Hmm

PS Where is the new member FAQ?

Welcome Hilary!
I can't wait to hear your story.

As for the FAQ, we ain't got one.
At least on this incarnation of the forum (it's only like 4 months old) we haven't had any frequently asked questions. I think that's because there isn't too much history here for a new members can't just read a few threads and catch the vibe here. We don't have any real taboos, and everyone here has been really mature when dealing with some potentially inflammatory topics.

Well I guess I may as well introduce myself.  I am a 37 year old male living in Waterford Michigan (NW suburb of Detroit) [handmap] I am right here [/handmap]  I think i found escape pod (might have been Pseudopod first) surfing on itunes for podcasts.  Escape Pod and Pseudopod have turned me on to almost every other podcast I listen too I think.  Escape Pod to Scott Sigler, Sigler to 7th Son, Sigler and 7th Son to Billibub Baddings.  Escape Pod pointed me to Podiobooks.com, Variant Frequencies, etc.  I am podcast Junkie, and I have Steve to thank for it.  Thanks Steve, I appreciate it, as around the same time frame my car died and I started using public transit, escaping into a podcast beats the hell out of interacting with some of the freaky things that ride the bus with me.    I have been a lifelong sci-fi/fantasy/horror fan.  I think i started on Tom Swift and ... books.   Waiting anxiously for more Union Dues (Thanks JRDerego).  I look forward all week to my escape pod and pseudopod updates.
