  1. I’m really happy to see this podcast continuing since it’s one of my favorites. hpmor was my favorite fiction and when you started Metropolitan man it was the only other rational fiction I had read to completion. It’s almost as if we have the same taste or something.

    I liked Host as well and the short story at the end was a good twist.
    But at the moment it feels like I need to spend a bit of time to think it over. Oh and I think the music was quite fitting together with Drake Walkers voice. Many audiobooks don’t use music at all in my experience but I think it can really make the book better if done right.

  2. This is my favorite thing you’ve ever written, and the actual episode is really well produced.

    On another note, I am proud to present you with the Award for Most Appropriate Use of “Komm Susser Tod” Ever. Got a huge goofy grin as soon as that started playing, I had already made the Human Instrumentality connection.

  3. This is one of my favorite podcasts, thanks a lot of continuing it!

    Excellent story to start off with, look forward to what comes next.

  4. Dude, I just now saw that the podcast continues. I vaguely remember you maybe saying something at the bayesian conspiracy but I didn’t have time back then and forgot to check later. xD
