The Melting Potcast

Episode 56- Main Ingredient “Ears to the Ground,” What Boils My Pot?

January 15, 2018

January midmonth brings us a new story by Word Chef Hugh O'Donnell. True to his form, it's a Main Ingredient story based on a Stoke the Fire prompt. In this case, Prompt #13- Where did the corn go?

Yes, it's a Freelance Hunters story!

When a town goes missing--the whole town--only Glory, Bingo, and Joachim seem interested in investigating and claiming the reward for finding it.


We follow it up with a What Boils My Pot? segment in which Erin extols the folly of infodumping unnecessary details. A. F.'s brain actually works on this one.


We're also introducing TWO new segments this spring! Short Order Cook and Pot Roast! 


Short Order Cook- email (Subject Line: Short Order Cook: NAME, where NAME is the host you wish to challenge) and include a 1-2 sentence story idea. That host will have 5 minutes on a future episode to plan and tell a story based on your idea!


Pot Roast- Like a Friar's Club roast, but regarding writers, podcasters, and other storytellers. Tweet, Facebook, or email the crew with suggestions and/or roast fodder when asked!
