This powerhouse of a novelette is packed with wordsmithing hot sauce: sex, violence, double-crosses and an ending that'll rock your socks.

And please send him an appreciative email for his OBSIDIAN story and stellar performance.

J.C. is mum during this episode's outro, but the intro is bursting with "talky-talk" pimpage of J.C.'s recent appearances in the podosophere:

Coming up next on 7th Son: OBSIDIAN: The cast of The Radio Adventures of Dr. Floyd experience the blackout. You'll giggle like a kid at this one!

OBSIDIAN Episode 14 by J.C. Hutchins

Transient

This week's OBSIDIAN short story episode begins with a much-chagrined J.C. pleading for your help to make nice-nice with the Podcasting Karma Gods. Why? Well, he totally blew a promise to fellow podcaster Guy David to promote Guy's ultra-cool OBSIDIAN-inspired "Night Guy" podcast episode. So please -- after you listen to this episode of OBSIDIAN -- check out Guy David's blackout version of The Night Guy.

On to this week's short story, titled Nemesis, written and narrated by Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff. This is the first part of an epic suspense-filled novellette; its conclusion will debut next week. If you like what you hear, be sure to email Mark and tell him so. You can find Mark's contact information at MarkYoshimotoNemcoff.com.

In J.C.'s intro "talky talk," he (doesn't) pimp:

Coming up next on 7th Son: OBSIDIAN: An incredible and poignant contribution from "The Bitterest Pill" creator Dan Klass, more "Voices from the Darkness" episodes, and -- if J.C. can get his shit together -- an OBSIDIAN Clone Line episode.

Spreading the White Noise 2 word by J.C. Hutchins

Hey everybody -- just wanted to update you on the WHITE NOISE 2 grassroots "new media" push that's currently sweeping the podosphere. As you know, I recently interviewed director Patrick Lussier and screenwriter Matt Venne about their involvement with the film. (For newcomers to the site, you can find the interview here.) What you don't know is that Patrick and Matt are currently on a whirlwind podcasting press junket, chatting with other high-profile podcasters.

The creative duo sat down and had an awesome face-to-face interview with podcasting powerhouse Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff about writing, the entertainment business and more. The conversation (and coffee!) flowed freely, resulting in an amazing interview.

Check out the interview at Mark's Word Sushi podcast, and -- as always -- spread the word about Patrick and Matt's hard work. (Update: Mark's interview is now available the Pacific Coast Hellway and Podshow Press sites, too.)

Your involvement is already making WN2 a rising star in sales: On Monday, WN2 was ranked #1,800 on Amazon.com's sales charts. As of this writing, the film is now ranked as #983. Better still, the movie currently occupies the #18 and #21 slots for DVD sales in the Mystery and Suspense categories, respectively. Not bad for less than a week's worth of pod-promotion, eh? You are making an impact.

Thanks to all of you who have spread the word or purchased a copy of the film. Find WN2 here at Amazon.
