  1. Clara,

    Been listening to some of your podcasts and enjoying them. I enjoyed all the talk about “The Martian,” and will go watch it as a result. I was really fascinated with the card game anime that involved some kind of poetry reading. That was very brand new to me. I generally am drawn to the Overnightscape shows by peoples personalities as much as by what they talk about, but I hear about a lot of things here I wouldn’t elsewhere.

    Anyway, I have heard you on the “Central” musing about whether to keep doing podcasts….if you enjoy doing them I hope you do keep doing them. You also mentioned liking communication and some sense of community. I’ve wanted to get more of that on here and at times have gotten some. I think with more effort I would get more. I’ve also noticed ebbs and flows of collaboration and back and forth usually involving PQ Ribber somewhere in the mix.

  2. One other thing. You came on here at a time when the number of hosts and podcasts per month went up dramatically. It took me a while to get around to checking out some of the new and returning people as I imagine is the case with others.
