In Season One, I released thirty-two episodes, consisting of seventeen standalone short stories and two multi-chapter instalments.
Season Two Goals
For Season Two in September 2021, in addition to short stories, I expanded the podcast to include my blog posts from Tall And True. And I launched the podcast website, TallAndTrueShortReads.com.
Season Two featured twenty-six episodes, a mix of fiction and nonfiction writing. And like Season One, each episode concluded with my Writer’s Insight explaining when, why and how I wrote the short story or blog post.
When I introduced Tall And True Short Reads in 2020, I called it an “audio fiction podcast”. But two seasons on, I’ve realised I’m producing a storytelling podcast, whether the episodes are based on short stories and blog posts, fiction and nonfiction, or tall and true tales.
And so, with Season Three, I plan to include other examples of my storytelling from Tall And True — on dogs, travel, memoir and other topics — and the comedy routine I promised in Episode 40 of the podcast, My One Night Stand. And there will be more multi-part episodes, like Back to School and Both Sides of the Story from Season One.
The first episode of Season Three of Tall And True Short Reads, to be released later in September 2022, fittingly starts with a “story that begins at the end”, Once Upon A Time, which I shared on Tall And True in July 2022.
And finally, as I say at the end of each episode, please support the podcast by telling your family and friends about Tall And True Short Reads and the Tall And True writers’ website.
