Episode 4: “A Man Who Wasn’t There”

Today’s episode is a tribute to a beloved and influential author in my personal pantheon, Douglas Adams.  His work has entertained and amused me for most of my life – so this month I’ve dusted off a short story I wrote some years back called, “A Man Who Wasn’t There,” asked my friend and fellow enthusiast Shannon Perry to give it a dramatic reading, and here we are. Share and Enjoy!  

This episode is read by Shannon Perry, and was written, edited and produced by D.J. Sylvis.
