The Overcast is a speculative fiction podcast featuring the work of authors from the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Every other week we produce stories in an easy to digest audio format, perfect for listening to while driving, biking, jogging, riding a unicycle, or striding across the land perched atop your giant killer robot. Listening while swimming is not advised.

J.S. Arquin is a writer, actor, musician, stiltwalker, and renaissance man. Or maybe he just likes wearing tights. He has performed and traveled all over the world, and has lived in many places, including New Jersey, San Francisco, and Greece. He currently resides in his favorite place of them all, Portland, OR, where he gleefully rides his bike in the rain year round and sometimes writes about himself in the third person. His narrations have been featured on Starship Sofa, Escape Pod, and Cast of Wonders, and his fiction has appeared in Plasma Frequency, Digital SF, and elsewhere. He hopes you enjoy listening to The Overcast as much as he enjoys making it. If you do, he hopes you will help him make it better by becoming a supporter.

Conditions of Use
We couldn’t say it any better than it’s already been said by the wonderful people over at Escape Pod. You can find their clear, common sense Conditions of Use page here:
Our conditions are exactly the same as theirs, except that you must replace the words “Escape Artists, Inc.” with “The Overcast”. Frankly, we’re too lazy to do this ourselves, and we don’t want to piss them off by copying and pasting their content, but if you’re the type of person who must see things in clear print to believe them, any word processing program can accomplish this in three seconds with a simple find and replace function. Or you can just use your imagination. That’s what we do, and it works even faster than the word processor.
The bottom line is, we’re all adults here, and we’re really not trying to offend you. Besides which, if you did decide to sue us, all you’d end up with is our big pile of unpaid credit card bills, and you’re welcome to those. So let’s all just play nice and enjoy some amazing fiction together, shall we?
