The Melting Potcast's first ever live show, at Balticon 51! Erin and A. F. go about their usual antics with no possibility of edits.
Start off with a Main Ingredient story by Julayne Hughes-- The Nast Pasty, based on prompt #11: THe empanadas you just took out of the oven exploded, and something alive is emerging!
And we took suggestions for last minute What Boils My Pot!
Promo- The Twain Shall Meet by John G. Walker
It is April Fool's Day, and there is plenty of foolishness going on in the Disaster Kitchen! Erin and Theo kick us off with some Botched Recipes sure to tickle your innards.
Follow that up with A Little Seasoning from Balticon 50, with A. F. interviewing Lauren Scribe Harris.
Prompt #11 is now closed, so we're introducing prompt #13:
Where did the corn go?
The only limit is your imagination.
Erin and A. F. will be at Balticon 51, so come see us!
Promo- Weekly Podioplex
A short panel from Balticon 50, It Takes a Village. While independent publishing calls itself independent, it's really a group effort with a network and family. This panel discusses building and nurturing that network so creatives aren't alone.
Our March first episode brings us a new pair of Stoke the Fire stories. These are for prompt #9- You wake up alone at night with bite marks on your legs. What’s eating you?
We give you:
“There’s No Such Thing as Lollywogs” by Austin Malone
“Me: It’s What’s for Dinner” by A. F. Grappin
After the break, we have another Mystery Meal, with an early scene from Charles Dickens’s Great Expectations. Keep your eyes on our Facebook group and Twitter feed for prompts for the next Mystery Meal!
Also, both Erin and A.F. will be panelists at Balticon 51 in Baltimore, Maryland Memorial Day weekend! A. F. will have copies of Starsigns, which came out back in December!
Before starting this episode, have to apologize for two things. One, that it's late. Two, we got some weird buzzing in our audio that I couldn't get rid of. At least it isn't in the Main Ingredient story. Speaking of...
CHEESE PIRATES by Chris A. Jackson
Chris has given us the honor of producing the prequel story to his CHEESE RUNNERS trilogy. Following the story, we also have a Food Critic segment for the trilogy itself. (Spoiler alert, all three books get 4 spoons!)
And we finish up with revealing the prize winner for our cheese contest of the last month and a half. One lucky winner wins Audible codes to get all three books of the CHEESE RUNNERS trilogy. Find out who it is!

We kick off with an all new Main Ingredient story.
JET PACK by J.K. Miles
All that's between me and the jetpack I've always wanted is a single bureaucrat. How could things get any worse?
