What a week!

The database upgrade continues. We’re about 41% done, and we’ve been trying to tackle the hardest ones first. I expect things to speed up as we go along, so… maybe it’ll be all done by the next newsletter issues? If you only experience The End via the newsletter, you really should check out how and where these listings appear on the website. It’s pretty nifty.

I’m calling out-in a good way-two very special fiction fans. The first is Twiglets, an avid fiction podcast consumer who lets me know when season finales are posted well ahead of creators. I thought I listened to a lot, but Twiglets has me beat. Keep up with their listening by following them on Mastodon. Next is Robert Kingett, a blind listener and writer who very graciously lets me know when I’ve done something to the website that negatively impacts people who use screen readers. He, too, is on Mastodon, and worth a follow.

As The End is many, many dollars away from covering its very real costs, I’m grateful for amazing people like these who volunteer some of their precious time to help me make this site better. And, of course, I also am very appreciative of those who choose to support The End financially. Which can be you. Now, please and thank you.

In theory, I’m helping organize some audio fiction performances at Phoenix Fan Fusion next weekend. If you’re attending, I hope you’ll stop in and enjoy the performances. Or at least say hello.

Let’s get into it, shall we?
