Sorry for the delay between episodes. As a freelancer, my financial situation is quite feast-and-famine, and I needed to recover from famine. I did not quite get a feast, so there may be another famine in the near future. Thanks for your patience. If you'd like to help make episodes appear more often, please use my tip jar at:

Here is a personal note to explain the unannounced hiatus which this podcast experienced over the last two months. Thank you to those who asked after me.

There's a happy reason and a sad reason. Let's get the sad out of the way. I no longer have access to the laptop which I was using to record this. It had several more episodes recorded on it, which I had not yet published, and which must now be re-recorded. That audio was the rest of Chapter Five, which is complex and surprisingly exerting to narrate for multiple reasons.

The good reason is that over the last two months, I switched from my 9-to-5 employment routine, and have been focusing my effort on some other passion projects that bring in money. I look forward to telling you about them when the websites launch. Until then, suffice it to say: I hope you like games.

I also run an annual convention, Penguicon, a combination of a science fiction/fantasy literature convention with an open-source software conference. Penguicon consumes most of my time in April every year. I had the pleasure to meet up with the author of UNSONG there. We got more than 1550 attendees. It was exhilarating.

Another piece of good news is that a fan of the podcast recently sold me a new laptop for really cheap. It appears to have decent USB ports which will not corrupt the sound quality as much as my regular laptop would do. You can expect the podcast to resume its regular schedule.

I would appreciate any tips you may wish to provide. As with all things related to UNSONG, this tip jar is provided with the explicit permission of the author. It's fast and convenient to send money through Square's Cash service. Here's my own Cashtag page:

While you have my thanks, of course tips are not necessary. And as always, here is a link to the author's site containing the original material narrated in this episode. Until next time.
