A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings

Presenting the first somniloquent entry to this Our Podcast, and if only I were kidding! Regular aural peekers might know Miette as a determined and faithful insomniac, and I wouldn’t dare disappoint.

    A lot of the recordings from 2005 are in fairly rotten punk-rock shape, as I was only beginning to get the hang of recording technology and methods. I’m always happy to re-record these early stories on request, so you just have to let me know (it is a great one!).

    If it’s my accent you can’t understand, there’s not much I can do about that… I’m of the mind that if you don’t like what’s available for free on the internet, you should put what you like on the internet, in the interest of keeping the signal-to-noise ratio from flatlining entirely.

    So, I’d be happy to host your reading of the story, if you’d like to read it yourself. Let me know!

    Otherwise, if you’re looking for more information or the text, I recommend starting here:
