August’s FREE audio sci-fi short, “Dakō,” posted to Listen To The Signal Podcast

The latest episode of the Listen To The Signal podcast is up!

Hi guys! Today’s short story was inspired by an article I read in the New York Times about a couple of men who, many years after the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011, still go diving every day looking for remains of their loved ones. It’s so sad, they understand I think the futility of the search, but something compels them to never give up, and it becomes a ritual to honor the dead, or sorts, or at least that’s what I thought of it. So as I’m reading this article, of course, I say to myself, “What if…?” and this story spilled out of my head, complete. 

By the way, the title “Dakō” means “we embrace” in Japanese.
