Clarkesworld Podcast

In preparation for the amount of growth we expect to see to our podcast (2 extra stories per month, starting next month), we made some technical changes to the way the files were hosted. It looks like the switch (earlier this month) happened without a hitch, but if you’ve recently experienced any problems, I’d like to hear about them.

That said, the final podcast for March has just been posted. “96, 97, 98, 99” by Genevieve Valentine is now available for your listening pleasure. Enjoy!
