New feed with archived stories

I've created a new feed for the Dismay podcast. This feed will help solve the problem of listeners not being able to find previous episodes of my podcast in the iTunes directory. At the moment, the first five episodes of Dismay are available in the feed and I will be adding more in the furture. Eventually, I hope, this new feed will be the only feed. But, for now, listeners should remain subscribed to the current feed.

It may be interesting for those of you who have not listened to the old episodes to hear how much things have changed (and, hopefully, the quality of recording).

The new feed is:

Parsec Awards Finalist

I am happy to announced that the Dismay podcast is now a Parsec finalist for Best Audio Drama (Long Form including Independents). Here are all of the finalists in that category:

* Second Shift: An original fantasy Podplay
* The Failed Cities Monologues ---running lenghths
* Prometheus Radio Theatre
* Dismay

I'm not familiar with two of the podcasts, but I do know that The Failed Cities Monologues has put out some great stuff.

This is the second year being a finalist in the same category. That's twice being recognized for something I enjoy doing, and that is wonderful. Good luck to everyone who has been nominated as a Parsec finalist.

Parsec Award Nomination

Dismay has been nominated for a Parsec Award for the following:

Best Audio Drama (Long Form including Independents)
Best Audio Production

I have submitted a 10-minute sample of three past episodes for the panel of judges to review and determine if it will be a finalist. I was a finalist last year, an honour for which I am still glowing about, and it'll be wonderful to be a finalist again -- there are a lot of good podcasts in the running. Again, thanks to everyone who has supported Dismay.
