Read along with us!
Below is the text version of the audio.
(Show notes are beneath the text.)

 

“Thought you had me fooled, didn’t you, Jack? Selling me a wild goose chase about the Fountain of Youth.” Mr. Liaberco clamped the hat on his head. “Did you really imagine you could get the best of an old news hound?”

“Don’t you know driving in a hurricane is dangerous?” Nessa said.

He laughed, a cool mirthless sound that held no humor. “A little storm won’t keep me from getting this story.”

“What story?” Jack asked. “You just said the Fountain of Youth is a wild goose chase.”

“It is. But the story you’re really here for isn’t.”

SHOW NOTES

We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.

Recording. We recorded this segment in two takes, after three practice runs with the microphone off.

Technical. The Audacity refinements are becoming second nature.

Comments. We went back to a previous installment to listen to Mr. Liaberco’s voice again. And had to laugh. We have come a LOOONG way!

Story changes. Minor changes to the written version this week, eliminating an “it” and a comma.

Fiction by HL Carpenter:

Jack and The Fountain of Youth. Some people say the Fountain of Youth is a myth. Jack Ponsi Dileonardo Thomas knows better.

The SkyHorse. Fourteen year old Tovi thinks finding a flying horse is fabulous luck–until a mysterious stranger says finders aren’t always keepers.

The Demise of Fyne Literature. Who killed Fyne Literature? The Fictional Book Investigation Agency is on the case—and the lead investigator is closer to the culprit than he realizes.

Dream Stealer. Is stealing a dream better than losing your own?

Walled In. When her father is accused of fraud, seventeen year old Vandy Spencer discovers her entire life has been built on a heart-shattering deception.

Pirate Summer. When her brother disappears, Josey is sure she knows where he’s gone. And the only way to bring him home is to travel two hundred years into the past with a boy she can’t trust.

A Cause for Murder. Someone at Happy Haven is a killer. Septuagenarian sleuth Emma Twiggs navigates madcap mayhem, multiple mysteries, and murderous motives to discover who has a cause for murder.
