About Us

Short fiction torn from today’s headlines. Each week, we feature an original short story inspired by the news—exploring what it means, why it happened, and why it matters. Because in a world gone haywire, sometimes art is the only thing to make sense of it all. Hosted by Ashley C. Ford. New episodes coming July 8!

Latest Episodes

Manuel Gonzales: The Extinction Show

Who knew extinction could be the hottest ticket in town? Manuel Gonzales, the author of The Regional Office Is Under Attack! and The Miniature Wife, imagines a time when people pay to attend Extinction Witnessing Events. It’s a dark, far-fetched idea. And uncomfortably plausible. Just remember: the larger and more beautiful the animal (say, your Amur Leopards and Asian Elephants), the higher the price of admission. Narrated by Edoardo Ballerini. Hosted by Ashley C. Ford.
