Muse and Mania, February 2009

Hear it! or Subscribe!

This is a dark and wretched way to start this thing off afresh. I'm not 100% with the editing, but I've known these two stories have needed forcing together for years now. Enjoy!

In this episode of The Room Behind the Bookcase, Tim Ralphs tells Orpheus' descent into the Underworld and an old "Mad Axe Murderer" tale he heard as a boy scout.

Shout out to the Toaster Repair Crew. And to fine company.

Lovely. Isn't it amazing how a talented storyteller can let you hope that this time the story will have a happy ending? Even though you've heard the Orpheus myth many times, you find yourself driving home from the store, clutching the steering wheel, whispering, "Don't turn around, don't turn around," certain that you can influence poor Orpheus.

Either that or you're a hopeless optimist.

Ahh Tim. Welcome back. So good to hear your voice again. (Frankly, I could listen to you read the phone book, the fact that you are a truly gifted story teller is just beyond excellent)

This was the first episode I've heard of your podcast, after hearing your voice on quirky nomads for a while. I listened to this at work. I have to say that it took me a little while to focus again after it was over, it freaked me out just a bit. Great podcast!
