Season 2 Episode 2: Nothing But Time and Other Stuff

Told y'all I'd be back sooner this time. This episode contains a reading from my short story collection Other Stories and Nothing But Time, a mini-rant about perceptions of the Joker movie and some love for writer Tim McGabhann's debut novel Call Him Mine. A little more suitable for sensitive listeners than the last episode, but only just. Enjoy. And support the podcast by buying my novel DISORDER -


Season 2 Episode 1: Hard Rock and Hiya

The podcast is back. And the sound quality should be pretty damn good now that I've invested in some decent recording equipment. However, the content is a little bit incredibly unsuitable for kids and some adults. Listen with caution, not safe for work, all that jazz. Be selective in where and how you enjoy this. Ya sick puppy. Other than that, enjoy the show. Support the podcast by buying my book, DISORDER

Road Rage and Creative Writing Q&A

The host of The Gerard Brennan Disorder Podcast reads another short from his collection, Possession, Obsession and a Deisel Compression Engine, titled Road Rage. Also, he answers some questions sent in by listeners on creative writing, and one that wonders "Dafuc is it all about anyway?" So tune in for the hosts thoughts on these aspects of creative writing, and Orange traditions like marches and bonfires. Twitter: @gerardbrennan Buy a copy of Disorder:


Steele Guitar and 925 by Gerard Brennan

In this episode the host reads two more short stories from his collection titled Steele Guitar and 925. Both are tongue-in-cheek horror stories from the Fireproof universe. If you like these, you'll enjoy the novel Fireproof. There's also a bit of a rant at the en of this one about trying to get published. It's a little self-indulgent, but sure, what else would it be?

The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and Blood Bath by Gerard Brennan

Gerard reads an Edgar Allan Poe short story that first came to his attention on an episode of The Simpsons and follows it up with Blood Bath, a story from an early collection titled Possession, Obsession and a Diesel Compression Engine. A few musings included, but not many because the heat had his brain cooked. Enjoy! Twitter: @gerardbrennan Order your copy of Disorder from
