Chuckles Mulrooney, Attourney for the Damned, Part 1.

Stop the presses! We're doing something new this episode, and that is using voice talent other than Scott to bring you your weekly story.

This is a story many of you have heard before, but re-written to prepare it for the BONES ARE WHITE collection. The voice talent is Alec Volz, a very cool cat with a very cool voice. He's also a fan who loves NOCTURNAL, so he clearly has skill and great taste.

Narration is a bit slow and over enunciated...

No offence to Alec but this is really missing Scott's excitment and enthusiasm. Took me some time to remember where I had heard this before too.

@taylorconnie: Thanks for the feedback (no snark or sass, we appreciate it).

I agree with taylorconnie. I think Alec's voice is nice, but the narration was slow. He did better when he did dialogue between characters, but I had to restart the story several times at the beginning because my mind wanders when people speak that slow. It's one of my pet peeves.

If memory serves, this is not the first of your short stories with a voice talent other than yourself. Was it Iowa Typhoon?

In fear of sounding redundant, Alec does have a good sound.  His cadence did start a little slow, but once he got into the dialogue, it was much more listen-able. (Is that even a word?) After listening again, that may have more to do with the mood of the story's opening than the actual talent.

@Jokerdas: Pretty sure I did "Iowa Typhoon." There might have been other stories without my voice ... are you thinking of when Dawn & Drew did "Snipe Hunt?" Honestly, I've been at this for seven years, have done roughly 350 episodes of fiction content (not counting the FridayFixes and other sundry bits, which take the total well over 500), and it's getting hard to remember things.

I like the narration on this one.  Yes, it is different from Scott's voice; but that doesn't mean there is anything wrong with it.  And as far as over-enunciation goes, I did not feel that was the case.  Personally, I think Scott should have ME narrate his stories (or at least give me the chance to show what I am capable of.)

So I'm tardy in listening to this episode. But when I did, I had to start it over from the beginning of the story because holy moly this narrator's voice is butter. BUTTER, I TELL YOU!!

I am now convinced that making the business decision to have someone else read the stories is less about givng more time to Scott and more about adding Rico Sauve voices for narration. Get Nathan Lowell on and this podcast will need to be renamed BUTTER.

Seriously, though - really enjoyed this narrator's style. His voice really reminded me of the dude that always does the movie voiceovers for trailers. Good stuff and very professional. And also slightly unnerving hearing a smooth voice so easily talk about the damage of a .44 to someone's head Surprised
