Welcome to the Metamor City Podcast!

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 311 – Making the Cut, Ch 52

Daniel meets up with Brian and Fiona before they join Miriam’s trap for Victor (which is actually a trap for Brian and Fiona … but Daniel doesn’t know that). Sasha helps out Morgan (who is still two years from becoming a vampire … but Morgan doesn’t know that). Then she talks religion with “Jenny Bloggs” (who is actually Abbey Preston … but Sasha doesn’t know that). Dramatic irony abounds, is what I’m saying.
