If you take your stories aurally, this week’s Wordcount Podcast is a good one–five stories based on the theme “Mistaken identity at the pub.” The Wordcount Podcast always features a variety of strange, sexy, weird, and arresting tales.
Host: R. B. Wood
Guests this week include Bill Kirton, Angelica Dawson, M. A. Fink, M. Holder and the always erotic Eden Baylee.
