Sioux Empire Podcast 097 Owl Creek Bridge and Theresa Stehly

This podcast contains adult content, listener discretion advised.

Theresa Stehly makes her triumphant return to The Sioux Empire Podcast this week to tell Robert Mehling, Seth Glover, Natasha Estes, and Dustin Buri all about city government and her adventures in amateur journalism. But first, Seth give the crew a little run down on “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by Ambrose Bierce. A story Kurt Vonnegut called “the greatest American short story.” Theresa tells us all about her newsletter “The Stehly Report” and talks about what it would be like to run a small newspaper. She also gives us an update on last week’s legislative coffee and a quick rundown of recent city news. This episode is brought to you by Sioux Falls Sno Jam Comedy Festival celebrating comedy and…Snow! That’s right there is no other comedy festival like it. Thirty comedians from around the country will be traveling to Sioux Falls, SD to perform in various venues across the city. Over the course of three days they will perform in both stand up and themed showcases, not only testing their comedy wits but their endurance to the cold. All the while supporting a good cause. Net proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics of South Dakota. Kurt Vonnegut also once called The Sioux Empire Podcast “the greatest American Podcast.” Sure he died seven years before this podcast existed, but you’d be amazed what you can find out with an ouija board and enough cough medicine.

 

Seth’s Book Club
An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce
“An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”, a short story by American author Ambrose Bierce, is “one of the most famous and frequently anthologized stories in American literature”. Originally published by The San Francisco Examiner on July 13, 1890, it was first collected in Bierce’s 1891 book Tales of Soldiers and Civilians. The story is set during the American Civil War, in which Bierce himself was a soldier.

“An Occurrence” is renowned for its irregular time sequence and twist ending. Bierce’s narrative, discarding linear sequence, and adopting the protagonist’s inner experience, is an early employment of stream of consciousness. Calling it “the greatest American short story,” author Kurt Vonnegut added, “It isn’t remotely political. It is a flawless example of American genius, like ‘Sophisticated Lady’ by Duke Ellington or the Franklin stove.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Occurrence_at_Owl_Creek_Bridge

It has been adapted as a film, as well as an episode of the twilight zone and, has been imitated in popular culture thousands of times.

Sioux Empire Podcast 093 The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon and Unknown

This podcast contains adult content, listener discretion advised.

Skyler Bolks returns to help Seth’s Book Club unpack the steaming pile that is The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King.  It won’t take you long to realize how much he hated this book.  From what I can tell from Seth’s summary it is a book about a girl who gets lost in the woods with a softball player and there are piles of feces everywhere, and because it’s Stephen King, I assume there is a monster or ghost or monster ghost involved.  The review ends up being mostly an analysis of if Kangaroos read books.  The gang also digs into a new segment for 2018 Weird News!  This episode is brought to you by Sioux Falls Sno Jam Comedy Festival celebrating comedy and…Snow! That’s right there is no other comedy festival like it. Thirty comedians from around the country will be traveling to Sioux Falls, SD to perform in various venues across the city. Over the course of three days they will perform in both stand up and themed showcases, not only testing their comedy wits but their endurance to the cold. All the while supporting a good cause.
