We’ve been listening to Limetown during our ds106radio tweet-alongs. So far, we’ve heard:
The show is very cinematic. This makes sense, since the creators are two film school grads. Making a movie takes major money, but making a podcast is much more manageable. So that’s what they did, and they got themselves noticed and made names for themselves.
And it’s the kind of thing that could only have happened through the Internet. They didn’t need anyone’s permission, they didn’t have to follow anyone’s rules or adhere to anyone’s schedule but their own. They just Made Art and put it out there. And people dug it. We had many great observations on the sound:
#ds106 outside to inside transition was very apparent. You could hear the bugs outside then the echo of their voices inside.

He enjoyed listening to Mother Night, which I’m sure has some significance. But it’s been so long since I read it that I’m not sure what to make of it.
