So, here's the rest of that Western/Horror tale with the funny name* This one's different from the Ben Parks stories, although they both take place in the American West, at the end of the nineteenth century, and focus on a pre-teen boy.
Whoops, guess they're actually pretty close.

So, this was the episode that got postponed from October. I'm presenting my short story/novella* "Varcolac," which is long enough I felt safe in splitting it in two. No qualms there.
"Varcolac" is the second Western story I ever wrote, but it differs from "Birth of a Sidekick" in that it's a Weird Western (if that's what a Western combined with another genre is called, in this case, Mystery or Horror). Give it a listen, y'all.

If you're interested in the next episode of my solo podcast, I'm performing the uncollected Stephen King short story "The Reploids," about a stranger who comes out from behind the "Tonight Show" curtain when Johnny Carson's name is announced. It is only available for Patreon supporters, though I'm not charging for that particular show.
A combination episode of my New Year's show (timely, yes), and one from just the other day, wherein I talk about boredom, upcoming goals, and recount an almost-story about the film industry.
Do you wanna download this? Then Right-Click HERE! Note: Because time is fleeting (and madness takes its toll), the next episode will be for Patreon supporters only (LINK). That way, the Halloween episode can drop before Halloween. Listen, but not for very much longer.
Well, this one has been a long time in coming. In what'll probably be my longest-ever episode, I record my thoughts about my father, our last times together, and the frustrating and exhausting days after that.
Again, this episode is the MUTHA of over-shares, so if you don't want to see how they make the sausage, and what happens to it when the body is through, you may consider skipping this one.
If that's the case, I'll be back to my regular shenanigans in just a week or so.
Download the show? Alright, just Right-Click HERE.
Also, I attempted to do a video version of the 2017 introduction, but the video stopped recording after six minutes, leaving only the audio. If you feel like checking that out, it's here:
So, Rish goes for an extra long drive, thinking about the recent writers' conference, the people he saw there, and the encouraging/discouraging things people said in panels. So he gets kind of inspirational too.*
Can we be frank, kids? I think this is my best episode ever. Yeah, I said it.
Your mileage may vary.**
Go ahead and Right-Click THIS LINK if you want to download it. I dare you.
*Warning: a bit of language and a bit of "La La Land" in this one. So, double-warning.
**I made some kind of promise in this episode, so here's the link to that story I vowed to not only write, but to publish. Me and my big mouth.
So, a year or so back, Rish went into the woods and recorded this episode in front of a campfire. He shares the story "Remember the Future," about a teenage girl who receives a rather unfortunate gift (with an appearance by a character or two from past Rish Outfield tales).
Warning: A bit of TMI.

A year or two ago, I entered an audio drama in the "Masters of the Macabre" contest, the entry that would, sadly, be my last. I wrote about it here. It was brought to my attention that that episode was no longer available, but luckily, I still had the original production.
Featuring the voices of Renee Chambliss and my niece, "Miss Fortune" is a short piece written with awfully narrow specifications. The location had to be a Festival, the monster it featured had to be Raw Head, and a specific tarot card had to appear (namely, The Hermit).
I recorded this episode after a particularly heavy snowstorm, and was going to save it until next winter, but listeners (well, ostensibly they were listeners) told me to go ahead and post it. After all, it's winter in the Southern Hemisphere.
Of course, you can always download the episode directly by Right-Clicking This Link.

So, this is something I recorded really recently when the local neighborhood movie theater closed down. It was among the shortest episodes I've ever produced . . . so I decided to write a little something for after the show. Padding, if you will.
Hey, you wanna download the episode directly? Simply Right-Click on THIS LINK.
So, I have finally published my Brown Depths Monster novella, "Newfound Fame," despite a number of hitches.
It's the story about the old man who was once in a movie, playing the Creature From the Brown Depths, and in the intervening years, the film has developed a large cult following. And a legend of a curse on the production. But is it just a legend?
I talked about it in this episode, if you want to remember with me.
In this episode, I talk about the project, what made it unique, and play a sample.
Plus, the Sobe Lifewater commercial!

P.S. Okay, the NEXT episode will be for Patreon supporters only.
In the return of ye olde Podcast That . . . Rish shares a fairly old story with y'all, based on a surreal experience he once had getting his car inspected. Tis called "Surprise Inspection," and there's a slight chance you will like this one.
Oh, it was brought to my attention after I recorded this that in many parts of the country, they don't require a safety inspection to register automobiles. So, that either makes me lucky to have had to do so (otherwise, this story never would have happened), or it's bizarre and alienating to everyone listening. One or the other.

Back in January, I shared an episode recorded while I went for a walk. Here's one I tried--rather foolishly, I might add--to record while riding a bicycle. The only thing stupider would be to record one while hiking through foot-deep snow.*
In case you're wondering, the recorder did survive its fall, and I'm too cheap to buy another one.

Wow, I created a Patreon account wherein my pals and/or supporters and pledge a dollar (or more!) for every episode of my podcast I release. I should have done it years ago, when people first urged me to do so . . . but I guess it was too hard.
Listen on and find out why.
I thought it would be amusing to continually include the Spanish version of Exile's (Santino's) I Wanna Love You All Over all over this episode. Not sure if it was the right call.
So, if you'd like to support me, and prove that negative review correct, head over to THIS LINK and pledge something. Do it for Fake Sean.

I'm no fan of Valentine's Day, so let's not call this my V.D. episode. But, please get your junk checked out anyhow.
So, today I'm presenting the last story by Rish Outfield Big Anklevich's wife ever heard (and maybe it was the first too), and if I'm not lucky, it'll be the last episode you ever listen to either. It's called "Dead Letter," and you know exactly what I'm gonna say about it.
Still, I try.
NOTE: When I originally shared this episode, there was a problem with the file, and a third or so of the story got cut out. Feel free to like it now . . . if you can.

Hey kids, it's a double episode! Madness, apparently, takes its toll.
So, what you get here is a lost episode from 2015 (one I discovered in my folder of Dunesteef marathon episodes), plus another one from 2016 where I talk about a Broken Mirror premise, and the story I almost wrote for it.
I gotta warn you, though: this is mostly about writing. You're gonna get that two out of three episodes of this show, though. Gee, maybe I should've mentioned that from the beginning.
Go ahead and download this sucka by Right-Clicking DIS LINK.
Note: Please disregard my request for a list of Fake Sean Connery song recordings (a generous listener wrote 'em all down for me) . . . but feel free to make requests.
Way back in summer of 2015, Big and Rish recorded a That Gets My Goat episode where we bowed our head in shame for not writing our novels in ninety days. Then the episode sat, for months, gathering dust and compounding interest, until one day I did post it. But little did I know, I had recorded a Rish Outcast companion piece to be released when that show dropped. And this is that show!
I talk about writing goals, not succeeding in those goals, my first audio collection (which you can buy RIGHT ABOUT HERE, or steal HERE), about the legacy of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, and continuing to hate/misunderstand the YA genre.
So, dated as it might be, this might only be the third-to-last 2015 Rish Outcast episode. Fun?
