Escape Pod

I've been meaning to blog about Escape Pod for some time, having been pointed to it by Kenny. It's an excellent science fiction podcast, broadcasting science fiction and fantasy short stories, along with film and book reviews and the occasional "flash" story – a very short story just based around a single idea, which can be very good. All the stories are available to download as MP3s under a Creative Commons licence and it's completely legal. The site pays the authors and most of the stories are reprints from the big American SF magazines (Asimov's, F&SF etc). I've listened to a lot to the stories and the quality is generally high. I've also have downloaded the entire archive for my MP3 player, providing me with over forty hours of listening goodness. I highly recommend giving it a shot.
