lostnbronx sends in a show which brings us down to earth when we talk about poor reception and slow Internet speeds.
Sorry for the sound quality. I recorded this in the car, Dave Yates style, with my Sanza Fuze v2, running Rockbox -- but my car is loud, and I had the Fuze hanging precariously from my jacket, where it was covered over half the time.
The summer shorts are intended to be shortform twitter like audio updates. In this summer short we are introduced to George Washington Carver, a personal hero of lostnbronx http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Washington_Carver
(This is not where I bought mine, but the price seems pretty good -- better than I paid, anyway)

His very brief listing at the Podsafe Music Network can be found here, but it doesn't do this great man justice.
By all means, check out his Wikipedia page for a nice overview. His career was shorter than it should have been, but he had no equal.
May he rest in peace.

THEATER OF THE IMAGINATION
Dramatic Audio Media, And Its Context
Shownotes -- In No Particular Order (Yay!)
First off, there's the Wikipedia page for audiobooks (strangely, they don't seem to have one specifically for podiobooks -- at least, when I looked. Someone should fix that. But not me. I'm too busy. Or something.)
The Internet Archive's Old Time Radio "Gunsmoke" collection
Darker Projects (lots of fun going on here)
Decoder Ring Theatre (The Red Panda is da man -- and his female sidekick is too...rowaar!)
BrokenSea Audio Productions (lookin' good)
For live stage productions, check this guy out -- I haven't seen him, myself, but he's got right idea!
Again, not anyone I've seen, but they sure have the fire!

This is an app that some people bill as an alternative to Mythbox

Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog
(I figure there might be a few people on Earth who haven't yet seen Dr. Horrible. A really wonderful production, and a nice example of the wide breadth that Web content can take.)
"I Gotta Be Outa My Friggin' Mind"
NaNoWriMo.org (National Novel Writing Month) is an organization that sponsors an event each November wherein participants set out to write a novel in thirty days. The challenges and obsticles are many, not the least of which are the writers themselves.
