I am excited to announce that I will be producing a new monthly podcast featuring speculative fiction from a Christian worldview!
The Untold Podcast exists to engage the culture's imagination through speculative fiction from a Christian worldview.
At the Untold Podcast we want to recapture the power of story and use the weirder genres to do it. Science fiction, fantasy, horror and supernatural stories serve as metaphors for our lives. The distant star systems, the shining knights, the abominable yetis, and the ghosts remind us of our own struggles, triumphs and losses.
Every month we'll bring you a new story and flash fiction presented in a unique and dynamic way!
The producer and narrator of the podcast is Nathan James Norman, an author, pastor and theologian living in Northern Michigan.
I’ve heard golf is a great sport to take up for folks in my situation . . . but I don’t have the resources to get involved in that sport just yet, and I live in the six-month-snow-covered region of Northern Michigan. So, doing a story-based podcast was a good option for me to occupy my mind with something that I love! Stories!
The pilot episode is available now on the new website!
I am also looking for the following submissions:
- Short Stories (1,000-3,000 words)
- Flash Fiction (100-300 words)
- Music (Songs we can feature at the end of an episode)
(See the submissions page for details.)
Right now I plan on releasing an episode every month (with bonus episodes featuring my first person sermons popping in there every so often). I hope to make this a twice a month podcast once I get into the swing of it (and the submissions start pouring in).
So go check it out, share it with your friends, blog about it, and post it up on Facebook!
