Lookin’ for something fun to listen to? Ed Herbstman & Melanie Hoops star in a dramatic reading, produced for radio, of Kurt Andersen’s “holiday” tale. From the Studio 360 website:
This is what Kurt Andersen considers a holiday tale… melting ice caps and extraterrestrial spies? Kurt’s story, “Human Intelligence,” was produced for radio by Jonathan Mitchell, and stars Melanie Hoopes, John Ottavino, and Ed Herbstman. The unabridged version was published this year in Stories: All New Tales, an anthology edited by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio.
