This week’s news story:

Swine flu postpones Singing Kettle visit

changed to the alternative:

Kettle affected by quarantine

The West Coast town of Dunoon has been officially quarantined this week, as one of two hotspots for swine flu in Scotland. The local hospital has already been supplied with a large quantity of flu medications and local politicians are stressing that people should not panic. The quarantine prevents people entering or leaving the town for the next week, initially. The Singing Kettle show at the Queen’s Hall has been postponed and all schools in the area closed. The situation will be reviewed at the end of the week and the quarantine extended if necessary.

    Dude, I love this story! I wish it came about more regularly, but I know how difficult it can be to juggle your creative life & family life. Unfortunately, I am having an issue down loading this in itunes. It says there is not enough memory, but i have several gigs so I know it’s an issue with the episode.

    Hi Christa.
    I’m happy to hear you’re enjoying the story and I am working on getting episodes out more regularly.

    I take it you are subscribed to the feed – I am also getting an error there, but although the episode has appeared in the feed it has not yet been ‘released’ by podiobooks. I think that is what is causing the problem, but am investigating now. In the meantime you could subscribe to the main feed here, just listen to the latest episode using the built-in player or download the file directly from the link at the bottom of the shownotes.

    I have enjoyed the story so far and have listened twice what there is of it. I love it, but am very unsure if it has finished or if there is more to come. It has been a very long while that I’ve seen or (heard) a new episode

  4. Mick says:

    Hello Major,
    There is another episode on its way shortly, but until then you can find a short story set in the SOS world over at Every Photo Tells…. SOS is certainly not finished – we are only about halfway through the story, with plenty more to come!
