    Very good. Loved the quiet romance between bound man and proprietor’s wife, loved the laughter to make the story complete it’s cycle. Loved the descriptions of the bindings and the movement, easier for the limitations. Found the chase at the end a little cheeseball, but all in all, couldn’t think of a better ending.
    Thank you so much for reading!

    Hi Brendan! The chase at the end -was- cheeseball, but have you ever eaten a cheeseball? It’s terrible, before and after, but there’s a split second where it’s also mouthwateringly perfect.

    Thanks for listening! xo

    When you make casual reference to things like corrido, it makes me fall head over heels.

    Here’s a puzzle.

    I keep listening and I seem to never get to the end. Why?
