Content warning from the narrator. In section 2 of this episode, I will sometimes omit direct quotations which would need to be voiced. In other places, I will insert descriptions of what characters said, as a substitute for actually performing the characters.
 
As some of you know if you have read the book, this chapter has a content warning.
 
When I began recording the UNSONG audiobook, I did not realize what I was in for, because the author had not yet released the chapter I am about to read to you. Section 2 graphically depicts the torments of hell. 
 
I believe most, or all, of you would not wish to listen to those experiences in your headphones. Regardless, I decline to enact them in a performance.
 
This episode does not contain plot points. I recommend you do not listen to it, but am recording it for completeness.

Just a quick note to let you know that I hit my storage limit in Libsyn, so there's no episode last week or today. On August 1, Libsyn will archive the audio data of past episodes, so episodes will resume next week. I'm going to look into compressing the MP3 audio a bit more so that this won't happen going forward.
 
In the meantime, I just posted the weekly episode to the patrons-only feed on this podcast's Patreon. Patrons are three episodes ahead of this public feed, so they have listened up to Chapter 20, part 3. You can subscribe to catch up:
