Listener comments!

Avatar 2:29pm Nicole:

Hello, my friends & fellow Radioverts!
I'm sneaking in a comment before the show begins to say how much I appreciate all of you. Thank you for listening to these stories that I love so much.
And, before I stick my nose in today's book, Mister Boyfriend Esq(uirrel) has asked me to convey his kind regards and says that he'll be listening along but regrets being unable to join us today, as he is far too busy shedding his winter coat all over my apartment, like the wild man he is.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Richard S:

Hello! Not able to listen tonight, but I just thought I'd check in and say Hi - and note that I have the Dec 2013 issue of Asimov's where tonight's story appeared (it made the COVER!), and re-read it when I found out it was going to be read tonight - and I approve of the choice!
  7:07pm Sean:

I really hope someone knows the name of the last song!

Hi. Does anybody out of USA experience connection problems with wfmu site? Why I couldn't reach the web site, mobile app and stream from Turkey? I can only reach them by using vpn.
