Put Some Flash Fiction in Your Headphones


Story Tapes is a new podcast created by Bay Area writers Eliza Smith and Faith Gardner to showcase flash fiction.

In the past few months, they’ve featured writers reading their own work and others’, as well as answering interview questions about their process, intentions, and choices. The variety of music used for intros and transitions makes each 15- to 20-minute episode especially listenable.

Plus you’ll never find a podcast with a better banner for their website. Look at those foxes!
