This blog, podcast and website focuses mostly on happy things. We don't get into politics here, don't talk religion, and with a few minor exceptions, don't enter into negativity in any way. But once in awhile, real life finds us. This time, there's no jokes.
Long-time Junkies and podcast fans probably know the name Tee Morris. In addition to being one of the first three fiction podcasters in the history of mankind, he is an author of fiction and non-fiction (most notably Podcasting for Dummies, the bible of podcasting that I recommend to everyone), he is a co-founder of Podiobooks.com and an absolute die-hard Krakens fan (if you've seen him, you've probably seen him in his Kraken's jersey -- he's just that dedicated to the orange and the black).
Tee's wife Natalie passed away yesterday. Very shocking and unexpected. Tee now finds himself dealing with not only the tragedy of losing a spouse, but funeral expenses and the hard fact of being a single dad raising a seven-year-old daughter (known as "Sonic Boom"). Dark Øverlord Media has contributed to a fund that will help defray funeral costs and hopefully help cover other costs that will come up in the weeks and months to come. If you know of Tee, have enjoyed his stories, know how hard he's worked to champion free podcast fiction, know what a cheerleader he's been to everyone that puts pen to paper, consider chipping in a few bucks to help the effort. When you look the size of the podcast-fiction space, a few people contributing a few bucks here and there can help with a tiny aspect the Morris family's tough time.
