The Melting Potcast

Episode 64- 4th Anniversary Party- Stoke the Fire Prompts 14 and 15, Mystery Meal, Processed Foods

August 1, 2018

The Melting Potcast is four years old. FOUR! We can't believe it! We're bringing you a full menu to celebrate, starting with a pair of Stoke the Fire stories. They're both based on Prompt #14 A rash of people have just entered the emergency room-- all of them exhibiting superpowers. But one of them also touches on Prompt #15- There is an expiration date for your birth certificate. It's only a few days away.


"Expiry" by Christopher Michael

"The Waiting Doom" by Hugh J. O'Donnell


After that, we have another beautiful piece of literature twisted into a Mystery Meal. We give you the cloning process scene from Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.


And finally, we introduce an all-new segment. Happy birthday! This one... is almost as bad as Mystery Meals. In the new Processed Food segment, we take well known monologues from movies and theatre and put them through several layers of Google translate. This time, it was Morpheus's red pill/blue pill speech from The Matrix.
