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.

Marcie

Marcie. This story began its creation a good while ago. A brief encounter, but one that leaves a BIG memory. There is also significance in the fact that sometimes you should look, as well as listen.

A podcast on podcasts

A Podcast on Podcasts:  While this was originally an entry for the My Rode Competition I find it is very useful for people who do not really understand what podcasts can cover.

So I’m using it as a ‘Signature’ piece to advertise all the other podcasts you can find on this site. Enjoy.

Festive Greetings

The FastFictionPodcast team would like to thank you, our listeners, for your support throughout the 8 months we have been running.  During that time we have brought you 32 podcasts ranging from the lighthearted Home Alone, 5m.54 to the ambitious bush story with a chiller ending, A long time waiting, 31.m.31

While we have tried to make sense of the analytical data available, it would seem there is no one popular length or genre. Best of all, those of you who listen once, seem to enjoy going back through the previous pods to see what you have missed.  (For instance, A day too long, published over a month ago, is currently very popular.)

We admit to being surprised at the coverage off countries and cities tuning in to us too.  Our most popular being San Jose in America, and Ijmuiden in the Netherlands.  And by the look of it a very new listener in Wolverhampton. (As a one time Pom my only knowledge of this city is through the famed football club Wolverhampton Wanderers!)

As 2018 comes to an end we will be bringing you two new podcasts. The first one – to be released on 30th December, is a hard-biting cautionary tale, called Driver Unknown. And the next day, with the first day of the new year, a nostalgic look back to 1975, with a very modern twist, The Straight Line. More later ….

In the meantime please keep tuning in, posting reviews, and we look forward to catching up again at the very end of the year – and the beginning of the next.  Take care.

Time

Time: 23 minutes.

Don’t be confused by our podcast cover showing the 8th December. We want to be well prepared ahead of time. You see for those fans of the Fab Four that is the day that John Lennon was killed by a crazed Mark Chapman in front of the Dakota building in New York back in 19880.  While it is just possible that those younger listeners may ask ” Who were the Fab Four,” and “Who is John Lennon,” it is more likely they really know. But it is unlikely they feel as much anguish as Violet Flaherty, the luckless lady in our recent podcast.

The Beatles: While not only admitting knowledge, but admiration of The Beatles, I also remember those traumatizing headlines, and news headlines of December 8th, 1980. and how the world seemed to stop rotating in disbelief.  Remember, this was long before 9/11 and all the subsequent horror days that have united the entire globe in a mixture of incredulity, skepticism. shock and personal tragedy.

But while undoubtedly a serious continuum of events for our players, we assure you that our new release is not to be taken too seriously.  Just allow yourself time to listen, 23 minutes in fact.

Oh, and by the way…  If you enjoyed the story, please give us a review on your favorite platform, or iTunes. And if you would like a copy of the manuscript, or any others, just pop across to our Contact page.
