(MM3) Production Notes

Not a lot of background music or ambiance on this one, as there was a lot of narration. I could have maybe come up with bank music? But I wasn’t sure what sort of music would be playing in a bank in the 30s, if any.

I did fail to mention last week that Superman/Clark is in fact voiced by Nathan Bowman (NSPB) of the Worm Audiobook Project! Most fans of Rationalist Fiction are also fans of Worm, so if you haven’t heard/read it yet, give it a try. It is HUGE so you have many hours of listening, should you want them. :)

Wow. A truck of personal chaos crashed into my life over the last 24 hours. Sorry this episode is a few hours late! That probably won’t happen again.

I must mention that Bram Bakker began a Metropolitan Man podcast of his own a couple months ago, which I was unaware of. :( I feel terrible, I didn’t mean to step on his project. I wish him the best, please take a moment to check it out if you’re interested in another take on this story. He is very graciously providing the voice of Perry White for my version, thank you Bram!

(MM1) Production Notes

And we’re back! It’s been weird getting back in gear… with such a long hiatus I’ve very slowly accumulated most of the voice work I need, and gathered a lot of the background SFX and some of the music. This first episode coalesced over two months. Going back to putting one out every two weeks will be interesting.

As you can see there are some major changes to the website. I hope they are for the better. I’ve moved the SFX and Music credits to these Production Notes posts, and will be moving all the SFX to a running list on a single page over time. This is mainly so I don’t have to keep digging up old links for SFX I reuse a lot. :)

Those of you into audio fiction may recognize the voice of Mercy Graves, who is played by Kate Baker of the Clarkesworld podcast. I met her at WorldCon and she kindly agreed to lend me her voice, for which I’m crazy grateful! Clarkesworld puts out some amazing SF, if you need more audio fiction in your life, it’s a good place to go. There’ll be another SF podcast celebrity in the podcast later on, and of course Anaea Lay of Strange Horizons helped out back in the HPMoR days.
