Today I have two podcasts to show you! Both of these podcasts are wonderful and creepy. They are new to the podcasting world but not the writing world. They narrate their own stories along with other peoples. So please give them a chance! They will not disappoint! Make sure you like their podcasts and tell them how great they are!!


Eli Beals

Who is Eli Beals?

Currently live in California’s bay area but long for the pacific northwest where I am from. I have called myself a writer amongst other occupations for about 20 years with one self published novel which I might at some point revisit. I find short fiction more suited to my attention span when it comes to writing.

The Interview:

1. What’s your favorite story you have written or read? That will be on the podcast. 

As a rule, writers are supposed to hate their own work, but if I had to choose one that I find least detestable it would be “the devil’s wallet ” kind of a cautionary / morality tale which I enjoy immensely. 

2. What made you decide to do a podcast? 

I think having an audio element to one’s writing is necessary if a writer is to find their audience at large.

With self publishing and the immediacy of online publication so easily accessible the writer must add another layer. Also, I just love a good audio drama.

3. What gives you inspiration? 

My inspiration to make the podcast is from this obscure audio tour through a haunted house, can’t remember what it was called but it gripped the imagination.  It has been on my to-do list for decades. 

4. What advice do you have for new writers and new podcasters?

My advice to new writers is to read a poem by Charles Bukowski called “so you want to be a writer.” And if you still want to do it after you process his words then by all means keep doing it! And never stop.

Personal Thoughts:

Eli is a really neat person. From our few conversations, I can tell he cares about his work and wants to share it with the world. His voice sounds really good too. So please check it out and tell him what you think. His most recent video is Exit Light Episode 3

About David: 

Born in Panama, the country, lived in Texas, Michigan, California, Arizona, New Jersey, and Kentucky. Bringing all those life experiences alive in some form or another in his flash fiction writings. Do you dare?

The Interview:

1. What’s your favorite story you have written or read that will be on the podcast

 The stag or tainted. First two stories.

2. What made you decide to do a podcast?

 Reading out loud is better and to get a different venue out.

3. What gives you inspiration?

Always creating new stuff by observing surroundings. 

4. What advice do you have for new writers and new podcasters?

Plug away. Write even if it’s bad—you’ll know when it is and just reset.
