Tonight we have something a little different in store for your eager ears. Last month we went to the HEAR Now Audio Fiction Festival in Kansas City, and I promised to report back about it. Tonight’s segment looks at the festival itself, how it began, some features of it and where it’s going in the future. This is our first time doing a segment like this – let us know what you think! Feel free to leave us a comment below, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the second half of our show tonight, we’re kicking off our HEAR Now summer – pieces we heard at the festival that we’ve brought back to share with you. This evening we are revisited by Voices in the Wind Audio Theatre, whose work was one of the stories heard during the festival’s listening sessions. It’s entitled, “Good Things Come” and is written by Dave Carley. (Be sure to listen to the episode to hear about Dave’s thoughts on this story!) It’s a cheeky yet charming tale, and we hope you like it.
Thanks again to Sue Zizza, Jerry Stearns, Brian Price, and the HEAR Now Festival staff for their help in putting this feature together, as well as Dan Mushalko and Alison Holm for their guidance in production.
