I started this site as an attempt to stick to a regular writing routine. It’s sort of my writing “playground.” It’s not 100% lore accurate, and it’s not perfect. The goal is to just keep moving forward, to keep writing. The quality per episode will likely be uneven as I go.

For 2023 I am re-starting this project and plan to have a new 15-minute episode around the 1st of each month. I write everything here on the site first (behind the scenes), and then I record what I’ve written and add all the music and sounds to it in Adobe Audition. The MindFog podcast (audio version of each post) is then published simultaneously with each blog post. I consider the audio the “real version” of the story – this blog is just the companion to the podcast. If you’d like to view my podcast media kit,  you can do that here. Those stats do not include Spotify.

Thanks for joining me on my Fallout 4 journey, and THANK YOU SO MUCH for the absolutely amazing reviews you have been posting on iTunes and Audible and all the other places where you have posted reviews! I do see them, and I really appreciate all the kind words!
