Drabblecast Rules

This is one of the most hilarious and awesome podcasts out there. Norm's music, production value, and quality of stories are unmatched. This podcast features science fiction, horror, fantasy and otherwise weird stories. I would rate most of them as PG 13 ish. Norm's Weird News is pretty good and his music is excellent.

Have to pass on this one...

Great production and lots of nice touches, like creepy music behind the narration and good fiction. However, the jokes are all groaners and I can't stand the voice of the narrator, Norm Sherman. If you use the words "alas" and "indeed" a lot, you probably won't be rubbed the wrong way as much as I was. I am still looking for a fiction podcast that is creepy but not nerdy. :-(
