Ep. 48 - There Was A Nicholas Once by Alexis Lantgen

December 20, 2017

A witch-child recounts the Russian Revolution and the abuse and hunger her family endured. May trigger sexual and domestic violence survivors. 

Author Alexis Lantgen is a writer, 6th grade science teacher, and classical musician. Her stories have appeared in Phantaxis, Red Sun Magazine, and the Gallery of Curiosities, and she's written nonfiction for Renaissance Magazine. Alexis blogs at thewiseserpent.blogspot.com, and tweets @TheWiseSerpent. She lives with her husband, her four year old daughter, and their very patient cats in Carrollton, Texas.

Narrator Maria Rose is a graphic designer, writer, astrologer, classicist. Sometimes saturnine, mostly eccentric. She tends noisy society finches and remains unimpressed by cutesy bios containing mundane details about pets. Including her own. She's narrating her current project through ACX, "Messengers of the Right" forthcoming from University of Press Audiobooks.

Story music: Cinematic Soundscapes by Phil Michalski and Almost in F by Kevin MacLeod

Theme song: Ashes Ashes by Deus Ex Vapore Machina.
