I have decided to blog on my personal website with each release and give some additional background and behind the scene information not available anywhere else.
This was a very important episode. This was the first episode that featured contemporary work from an author other than myself. This story "Send In" resulted from contacting Justin Lowmaster about using one of his other stories which appeared in a compilation book one of my own stories also appeared in. That other story (which I'm still planning on producing in May) led to this story, "Send In".
My vision for the podcast is to draw in many voices and perspectives to challenge and inspire Christian imagination. A key component to this vision is to have contemporary voices contributing to this endeavor. (And heads-up . . . next month will feature a story from another published author!)
I was also looking for a particular song to close out the story with (I won't reveal spoilers). That search led me to Joshua Popejoy. And when I contacted him, he was more than willing to not only let me use this song . . . but also gave me permission to use one of his brand new songs.
Personally, I am going to be checking out a ton of Joshua Popejoy's work. It really is awesome.
I also have to let you onto to a secret. My favorite line from the story isn't what I said it was in the podcast. I chose the line I did because it best complemented Joshua Popejoy's closing song.
If you want to see my real favorite line, look at the comments section of this post after listening to the podcast.
