My beautiful, lovely, and ever-supportive saltmate, and co-conspirator on Bi Bi Bi, Imogen Cassidy, has written a story that I love called Beta Child. It was first published at The Colored Lens, and is now featured on StarShipSofa’s podcast.
If you listen to short story podcasts (and you should because they’re a great way to consume the medium!) you might recognize Tatiana Grey as the narrator.
You can listen to it here at StarShipSofa, or on your favorite podcatcher!
