I’ve been focusing so much on producing new work and reviewing/listening/discussing other people’s that I’ve hardly thought about what people feel about mine. It’s kind of a vacuum, where I know people are listening to these podcasts and my stories over at FinalRune, but have heard very limited feedback except from my friends (whose compliments I love, God bless them, but don’t have the objective weight of a stranger’s). So I was utterly tickled when I got an email saying there was a Review of Drizzle over at PRX!
PRX, or the Public Radio Exchange, is a site where independent producers can post their work and radio stations across the country can audition it — the t
arget being public radio. I’ve never really had much faith my work would be picked up by NPR but since you can get a free demo account as a producer for a year, I tried it out. A few people have checked out Day of the Dead, The Blind Man’s Confession, and Drizzle, of which the reviewer, Hans Anderson, had to say:
The story is well-written, with good detail. I don’t live in the city, but this pretty much left me with an image in my head. There were a couple of times, especially around the subway scene, where the sound overpowered the narrator, but it didn’t detract very much.
Since I don’t live in a city either, if someone can be transported there, then I’ve definitely done a fair job! Sadly, I’ve run out of time on my trial account and can’t really afford to buck up the $50 for a year’s subscription. If out of the tenderness of your heart you want to help me get my work to a broader audience, feel free to
Anyways, thanks for the comments, Hans, and I look forward to producing more variations on the ol’ radio drama block. And if you missed Drizzle, it was featured in Radio Drama Revival! Episode 1.
