Doubtcast 3: FEAR – call for contributors (by March 6th)

DOUBTISTUpdate: FINAL deadline: Sunday 6th March.

I want to put together another Doubtcast, to examine what FEAR is, and what it means to us human people, and how we use it, and how it uses us, and why we should be interested.

So here’s the official call for contributors.

If you don’t know what a Doubtcast is, it’s a podcast featuring poems, songs, audio-blogs, stories and other sound-related stuff. It’s easy to get on it: you just write/record/dig-out something about the topic, and send it to me by email at It’s pitched as an art, culture and philosophy thing; but it has me narrating it, so it isn’t that highbrow. If you think you might be interested in submitting something, check out the details here. And listen to one of the others. Probably both. They’re both good.

For the avoidance of doubt, you don’t get paid for this. It doesn’t make money. It’s supposed to be fun.

At the time of writing we have six things (a terrifying poem, a less terrifying poem, a short story, two songs, and a sequence of paranoid tweets read by a robot). These are all by men. Two of them (33%!) are by men with some Sri Lankan heritage. None (0%)  are by women. You do not have to be a man to submit stuff to the Doubtcast, in case that was not clear. (Although it’s fine if you are; I have no actual quotas to meet.)

We need at least four more things, or I’ll be spending a long time talking about a computer game I’ve been playing over the past month, and the podcast will therefore be worse.
