On April 24, 2013 at 12:43pm, my daughter and first child was brought kicking and screaming into this world. Naturally, this will mean that the blog and podcast may be entering a brief period of inactivity. Rest assured, however, that we are not gone forever. In fact, we’ve already begun production on a number of new episodes for the beginning of our next season. So stay tuned for more episodes in the Tales’ series, in addition to academic discussions about magic and space travel, renegade Wise Women of the Ashlands, and more.
