Podcasting is sometimes a lonely business. After the recording is finished, the process of editing and promotion means a lot of time spent at your desk in front of a screen. Reviews like this make it all worth while. Thank you, ladies, for making us feel like real, live artists.

More new art for Season 2 of Jarnsaxa Rising!

Have you seen Sif and Eric yet?

Her hair’s shorn (if you’ve heard Season 1, you recall that unfortunate incident), and she’s on a journey. She’s reluctantly agreed to bring Eric along, since they have a common wound from Loki’s trickery.  But where is their next stop? And who’s chasing them?

SEASON 2 IS GO

The first two episodes of Jarnsaxa Rising are available for your listening pleasure!

Episode 1, We Who Contain Multitudes: In September of 1944, Jarnsaxa wakes in her witch bottle on the island of Sottunga. A plane crashes, bringing strangers to her realm. Will they free her? What are their intentions? Are humans worth her loyalty?

Episode 2, Only The Best & Brightest: Jarnsaxa and Loki infiltrate The Hei Shui Corporation, using the bodies of Bachman and Eric. Familiar voices distract them from their mission. Eric wakes in the Land of the Dwarves and meets Sif, only to risk making an enemy of her. Thor prepares for another of Odin’s murderous errands, and Heimdall demands answers.

New Review and Dramaturg Love!

Working on the website re-design means double-checking links which means having Google serve you up some delightful review surprise goodness!

Carolyn Ducker did a deep listen and wrote a review about Jarnsaxa Rising Season 1 at Geek Girl Authority. This review is really well-written, going into details of how all elements worked for her. I’ve read a lot of reviews in my time, and Ms. Ducker is very good with structure and prose, pointing out how her listening experience worked. In particular, I’m very excited because she praised our dramaturg, Kit Gordon. Dramaturgs are essential to writers, directors and producers, providing an advocate for the best possible story. They never get enough love.

Thank you, Carolyn!
