This is our first Western episode! We talked about two of our favorite stories in the genre, Renegade by Cheyne Curry (http://cheynecurry.com/)Â and Backwards to Oregon by Jae (http://www.jae-fiction.com/).
We were lucky enough to be joined by Cheyne and her partner, and Executive Producer, Brenda Barton. We were very excited to have them with us because they’re working on an independent film, based on Cheyne’s short story “Requiem.” We had a great discussion about the film and, also, about another of Cheyne’s stories, Nature of the Beast.
We highly recommend checking out the film and, if you’re feeling particularly moved and generous, please consider making a donation to aid in it’s creation. Here’s the website where you can get more information on the film and see a short preview: http://www.3gruntsproductions.com.

The cocktail for this show, created by Cheyne in honor of the fans of Renegade, is the Trachel Bucking Bronco. It’s pretty much a Bloody Mary with tequila instead of vodka and it was FANTASTIC! Mmmmm. Here’s how you make it:
6 ounces tomato juice (or V8)
1 1/2 ounces tequila (preferably Patron. Even though it is expensive, it goes down smoother and hangovers are fewer)
6 dashes Worcestershire sauce
1 dash Tabasco sauce
1 pinch salt
1 squirt of lime juice or lime wedge
We hope you enjoy listening to the show as much as we enjoyed making it!
