This is the end of a chapter.

The last episode, of this podcast, to date.

If you would like to follow the exploits of your intrepid host, 

Nic Antoine,

head on over to “molteno“.

The show about art, culture, cuisine and all things: in-between.

Thank you, so, so much, for listening to this show.

It took a lot out of me.

I hope I put something in you.


The Truth Is Out There

The final issue.

The final episode.

The final.



“Final” is such an odd word to look at.

As is “fin”: how French-speaking individuals denote that swimming animals have junk in the trunk; i.e., “My word. Look at that fishs’ fin.”

Or, a rudder in the aft.

Or, you know, that it’s over.

In this case, for Michael Holt.

That is, until the Futures End…

[If you are all of the way down here, then you are a fan of addendums. That being the case, the host was fully aware of the “X-Files” send-up that the title of this particular issue put on display. Was it worth pointing out, within the episode itself? Sure. Was it done? No. Did you enjoy the episode, as well as the show, in its’ entirety? Hopefully, more often than not. Good journey, be well and, above all, keep thinking.]

The Beast Within

The seventh issue.

The dangers, of Cobalt-60, are examined, as well as its’ prevalence in modern society.

Inverse Compton Scattering is briefly highlighted: pun intended.

And, if I didn’t know any better, I believe that Karen Starr was involved in this issues’ conundrum…

Ms. Okafur’s got a pocket-full of “I told you so”‘s for our masked hero.

Enter: disgruntled board members.

Exit: invisible threats and ghost ships.

The sixth issue.

A volcano, in an ice-encrusted mountain, helps to save the day.

Sexual harassment is assessed: from the perspective of the victim being of either gender.

And, by the stars, the arrival of the first edit point: meta-textually speaking.


Next stop: Iceland.

In Veritas

The fifth issue.

Two unlikely, pan-galactic allies attempt a prison break, aboard a ship, the size of a few cities.

The reality, of how slavery traversed the centuries, is briefly examined.

And energy manipulation, by an alien species, is examined through the eyes of one without a single, define gender.

Please, leave your preconceived notions at the door.

The fourth issue.

Quantum light, and it’s potential use as a barrier, is considered.

Gender discrimination is equalized and, thusly, discarded as nonsense and inescapable: dually.

Kali also gets analogized to relationship personifications within one’s mind.

In space, no one can hear you scream.

That’s it.

It’s true and not worth expounding upon.

Email if you have any questions.

The third issue.

The modern superhero genre is contrasted against itself.

Cheating, in all of it’s permutations, is downcast: accordingly.

And the host gushes over the potentiality of a “Mister Terrific” film.

Sit back and relax.

Everything is going to be okay…
