Welcome to the Metamor City Podcast!

Posted by on 28 Sep 2013 | Tagged as: Announcements

The Metamor City Podcast was a sci-fi/fantasy audio fiction series that ran from 2007 to 2010, with some additional content in early 2011. It is distributed for free through this website. It features a mixture of short stories and full-length novels, all taking place in one large world with an overarching story arc. Combining the narration of audiobooks with the music and sound effects of a serial radio drama, The Metamor City Podcast provided an immersive audio experience of a world like no other.

In May 2015 author Chris Lester returned with a new podcast, The Raven & the Writing Desk, which features additional stories both inside and outside the Metamor City universe. These stories are presented in single-narrator format, with high-quality audio but minimal music and sound effects. New episodes of The Raven & the Writing Desk are released each week on Saturday or Sunday, both here and at www.chrislester.org.

TRATWD 141 – Ada Palmer

Posted by on 24 Feb 2018 | Tagged as: Interview

In this week’s episode I interviewed Dr. Ada Palmer–historian, musician, and author of the award-winning TERRA IGNOTA series of science fiction novels. We had a lovely conversation about world-building, characterization, the business of publishing, the challenges of incorporating freedom of religion in a secular society, and how concepts of wealth and scarcity might change in a world where all one’s material needs are provided for. This was a fantastic interview, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

TRATWD 140 – Christiana Ellis

Posted by on 18 Feb 2018 | Tagged as: Interview

In this week’s episode I interview Christiana Ellis, the mastermind behind a bunch of cool projects, including Space Casey, Nina Kimberly the Merciless, and the serial detective/adventure story Phyllis Esposito: Interdimensional Private Eye. Christiana had a lot of great insights to share about putting yourself into your work, knowing what you want to get out of your writing, and why you shouldn’t worry about whether your stuff is “original” or not. I had a lot of fun with this conversation, and I hope you will too!
