Hi everyone,

As you've probably noticed, I've stopped posting weekly episode threads in this subforum. I had some health issues earlier this year that led to a backlog. Combined with the limited engagement over the past couple years, we've decided to discontinue the practice rather than catch up.

If you'd like to comment on a particular story, please feel free to start a thread here for that episode! We do still enjoy getting your feedback, and we'll check in here periodically to see what you're saying.

Also note that we have a Discord now with a dedicated channel for Escape Pod. People comment there as well as having general chatter. If you donate already at any level on Patreon (as low as $1/month), you can join the conversation: https://www.patreon.com/EAPodcasts.
(If you're still donating via Paypal, thank you!! But maybe consider switching?)

-Divya

I'm sorry to see the threads end, but understand. Thank you for the option of listeners starting threads should they choose to do so.

Also, I hope that you are enjoying better health now and that it will continue to improve.

Having forum users start episode comment threads if they chose so is a reasonable compromise. Thanks for allowing that.

Re: Pseudopod Episode 766. Knock, Knock, Wolf. That was a nice and nasty tale. I've got ~20 minutes left to the story and I have NO IDEA how it's going to end. The author's keeping me guessing.

Will the payoff be worth it? Who knows! Bravo, eh. :-)

I'm a stand-up philosopher until 2024. Then, I move onto my next gig. I'm a gentleman forester and farmer. I also enjoy jumping into Lake Huron and panicking the fish.

As a patron (on Patreon), I feel I get excellent value. Mind you, I'm concerned how the discussion boards COULD become fragmented. How many different discussion boards are running right now?
  • Patreon
  • Discord?
  • Forum.escapeartists.net?

Meh, I'll adapt.

Wait, what?  There are discussion boards on Patreon?
