Today’s episode comes to you from Kirsten Imani Kasai, a novelist, poet, and essayist. She has mountains of work available through her website, and is also the fiction editor and publisher of Body Parts Magazine: The Journal of Horror & Erotica. Our theme for November is “Overindulgence,” and it’s worth noting that we have canceled our November 8th show in San Diego at Tiger! Tiger! Tavern because that date also happens to be one of national, nay, intergalactic importance. This elections season has been interminably long and incredibly painful, and after much hand-wringing we have decided that we want to encourage people to vote, to help getting others to vote, and then to watch the fruits of that labor be tallied and announced to the world on November 8th. Even though we love the respite and warmth that a good story can provide as counterpoint to politics, we feel that this election is too important to offer distraction from. Let’s all dive headlong into the hope for a better tomorrow. Our November show in Denver is on November 16th at Buntport Theater and then both cities will resume regular programming come December. Also, stay tuned for news of our 2017 themes as well. Your faithful hosts are whittling down the list and are excited to share them with the good people. We hope to do that in the coming days.
