Welcome to the first issue of ‘In Ink’, a supplement to Podern Times. Here we will be taking a look at some of the posts that have been published by podcasters, or about podcasting in general.
‘Inhale’ is the beautiful tale of reluctant superhero Tammy Tracer, a ten part stand alone audio drama series from writer and creator Rick Coste. (Behemoth, Pixie, Bryar Lane to name a few.)
Just over a year later, we now have the pleasure of an ongoing fictional journal from Tammy. I would suggest listening to the audio drama podcast first however, we wouldn’t want you to trip over any spoilers now would we. If you’ve already had the pleasure of listening to it then please feel free to breathe in this inspiring new creation.
I had the pleasure of catching up with Rick and asked him about this new direction.
“It actually stems from the need to continue writing. Over the last few months I’ve focused my attention on finishing some long held book ideas I’ve had. A couple are now in the hands of my agent and, while they are being reviewed and shopped around, I felt it was a good time to try something new.”
“I really wanted to continue Tammy Tracer’s story but I also wanted to do so outside of the audio drama medium.”
If that wasn’t amazing enough, Rick has also released another fictional journal, this time for a completely new character, Kira. ‘Kira’s Journey’ follows the thoughts of an AI (Accidental Intelligence as Rick puts it) from the moment of consciousness, through her escape, and into the exploration of the larger world. Could we be looking at the inception of a new audio drama?
“I just want to see where her story takes her as she explores what it means to ‘not’ be human. There’s quite a few directions I could go with it but my main desire is for her to be able to do so in her own way.”
