Two Dykes on Bike

 

Two Dykes on a Bike is released to coincide with the Dykes on a Bike Mardi Gras in Sydney, celebrating the Gay and Lesbian Festival, on the 29th February,

Wannarbee Bond uses her P.E. sign to best effect by being a Private Eye/Pest Exterminator. But sadly she doesn’t often achieve

the intended outcome in either area. In fact, she rarely gets the bad guy, but happily, nearly always gets the girl.

We would love to hear if you liked this “Something Different” story, and there are many Wannarbee adventures ready to come your way.  Too Many Crooks Spoil the Plot … A Tyme to DieDeath by Fermentation, just to name a few.  They were originally released in Bullet Rock N’Roll Noir magazine, which is sadly, now, long forgotten. But if you would like a print copy, please write to fastfictionpodcasts@gmail.com, and we will be happy to send a copy.

Wannarbee stories follow the Mickey Spillane style of Pulp Fiction, which we acknowledge is not politically correct anymore. But as Mickey Spillane used to say, “there are more people buy peanuts than caviare.”  So, grab your peanuts and sit back and enjoy a little old fashioned fun.

Aunt Jo. Everyone loved Aunt Jo. She did everything so well. She wrote her own cookbook, sewed costumes for the kids, tended the sick, and was always a lot of fun. Even when she was dead.

Note: Today we introduce Amy Bent as a very fine narrator to our story.

The Golden Girl – Part 4. Conclusion

The Golden Girl – Part 4 is the conclusion of the life story of Margaret. In many ways, it is also an overview of life for two couples, during the 40-year span from the 1960s through to the 1990s.

Having started with so much, and finishing with so little, we now gain a glimpse of the motivating forces that pushed this story to its conclusion.

Perhaps we can use it as a cautionary tale. But it’s up to you, the listener, to delve its meaning.

The Golden Girl Part 1

The Golden Girl Part 1 is almost two parts in itself. It begins with a friendship that almost comes to an end on the most crucial of days. But survives, only to falter again, at the worst possible time.

Ten Pound Poms was colloquial for a bi-government initiative between England and Australia – in an attempt to help populate the country. The fares would be paid from the UK to Australia, with a two-year compulsory stay. Otherwise, the fare had to be repaid.
