Awkward Podcasts #3: Brand Monsters

October 29, 2010 By: Category: Greatest Hits, Podcasts

Awkward Podcast #3 comes just in time for Halloween. I wrote this spoooooky monster story for the “Will Wright Reads …” event the other night. The event took place in a restaurant, so even if you were there, this may be the first time you’re able to hear it.

The Awkward Podcast #2: The New Words

October 19, 2010 By: Category: Greatest Hits, Podcasts

The second edition of the Awkward Podcast features a story I wrote a couple of years ago entitled “The New Words.” I’ve submitted this to a number of different magazines in the hopes of getting it published, but no one seems to want it. Which is too bad, because I think it is a damn fine story. So in the interest of getting it out into the world, where it belongs, I am giving it to you in podcast format. Please enjoy!

The New Words

Go into iTunes, and click on the “Advanced” tab at the top. Scroll down to “Subscribe to podcast.” In the box that says “URL”, paste the following link:

The Awkward Movie Challenge Podcast Edition: Fright Night

October 15, 2010 By: Category: Podcasts

What could be better than reading the Awkward Movie Challenge? Why, listening to the Awkward Movie Challenge, of course! Celebrate Halloween by listening along as Mike Segretto & Jeffrey Dinsmore trash the beloved 1985 horror classic Fright Night. If you don’t have time to listen to the entire thing, at the very least, enjoy the first minute to hear Mike Segretto’s amazing “Awkward Movie Challenge” theme song.

Awkward Movie Challenge Podcast #1: Fright Night

Be forewarned: this is our first attempt at this whole podcasting thing. There are some clicks and pops and weird background noises that may be somewhat irritating. But we promise they aren’t omnipresent. And we’ll figure out how to fix them in subsequent podcasts.
