    I’m planning on separating my commentary and story episodes into separate feeds here on johnmierau.com but I’ll definitely lunch a podiobooks feed, too.

    I love Podiobooks and have a lot of people looking just for the story and none of my jibber-jabber.

    This time, I’ll even try to keep the feed on podiobooks current with the home feed!

    Thanks for the question, Quandmeme!

    John, I’m a new fan of your work. Although sci-fi has broken the color(s) barrier many times over. I really admire your real world all-inclusive character selection, it is really refreshing in pod-casting. And thank you for not including the lower common sterotypes in your characters!!

    oh dear, not Amazon & Wispernet……. I don’t have a Kindle, just a generic ebook reader, will there be another way to purchase the audio series Infiltration (Enemy Lines)? AND NO iTunes, that is a stupidly overcomplicated system to use.
