This time, I sit down and chat with Cynthia Griffith about recording an audio drama instead of a narrated work of prose.
It’s the longest episode of Behind the Cut, but it gives a good peek at the process behind putting an audio drama together.
And remember, in a few weeks it’s the next Not about Lumberjacks story. It was written for a special occasion: the one-year anniversary of the show!

Story: Christopher Gronlund
I know it’s short notice, but can you read these lines of orc dialogue and then grunt and laugh like an orc for the next episode of Not About Lumberjacks?
And they did.
But I also love this episode because it wasn’t until after writing and listening to “The Other Side” that I realized I had written a story about the death of childhood — while still showing that adulthood is not without its own charm.
If you only listen to this episode to hear three good friends grunt and howl, it’s worth it, but I hope you like the interviews and commentary as well.
And if you missed “The Other Side,” it can be heard right here.
Daniel’s life was not going very well. Not only did his wife divorce him, but he was laid off from his job. With few cares about what would happen to him if caught, he breaks into his childhood home to see if something once in his bedroom closet is still there.
