Podcast - Mister Ron's Basement

Well, it took months, but Mister Ron’s Basement has moved, lock, stock, and podcasts (over 1400 of them) to a new server! The old server at slapcast.com is gone now, but for a while will do redirects to the new site, as long as you are not linking to a specific episode.

So just make it a point to bookmark http://misterron.libsyn.com or better yet, go over there and click on the iTunes link. Once in iTunes, if you click on the “subscribe” button, all 1400+ episodes become available for direct download through the program. You can get one, two, or even all of them if you wish!

Anyway, thanks to all the SFFAudio listeners and readers who have sent me comments over the years. New episodes have been coming every day since the first of August, and we are trying to make everything interesting and fun!

Mister Ron presents: The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button

SFFaudio Online Audio

Podcast - Mister Ron's BasementMister Ron’s Basement podcast has a special Christmas Episode that features the original 1921 F. Scott Fitzgerald story The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. A wonderful motion picture adaption of this story starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett is being released to movie theaters right now. It is a great movie. But the original Fitzgerald story is a work of genius, and the movie differs from it dramatically. We had considered serializing it across the span of a week, but instead offer the lengthy tale in its entirety. It is almost an hour long. Please download this, relax, and enjoy. You can find the episode http://slapcast.com/users/revry/6979

If the web site is down (it has been happening occasionally lately while the switch to a faster server is forthcoming), then you can load it directly from the feed at:

Mister Ron’s Basement: A Journey To The Sun & The Ghost Exstinguisher

SFFaudio Online Audio

Podcast - Mister Ron's BasementMister Ron, from Mister Ron’s Basement Podcast has a couple of vintage spoofs of SF and Fantasy for us. Ron writes:

“it turns out that Stanley Huntley must have had a passion for spoofing Jules Verne. Just a few months after he had put A Trip to the South Pole in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle in 1880, he went after Around the World in Eighty Days with the story A Journey to the Sun by Jules Verne, Jr. It features the English Baronet Sir Fillemup Frog, who bets his friends that he can climb up to the Sun. It’s a silly, but fun story.”
