RAS #639 - A Thing That Glistened

5/9/2024
Ron's Amazing Stories is home to a variety of thrilling and thought-provoking tales. In this episode, we have an extended segment of These Are Your Stories, where listeners share their own eerie and unexplained experiences. First up, Belinda takes us on a tour of one of Hollywood's most famous hotels, known for its haunted history and eerie atmosphere. She recounts tales of strange noises, and ghostly encounters that have cemented the hotel's reputation as a paranormal hotspot. Next, an anonymous listener shares her chilling encounter with black eyed kids—mysterious children with large, black eyes that have been reported in various parts of the world. She describes her terrifying experience with these eerie entities, leaving listeners on the edge of their seats. Finally, Jessica takes us on a wild ride with her incredible tale that unfolded during a drama class. Following that segment, we have a classic double feature in store. The first story, A Thing That Glistened, written by Frank R. Stockton in 1891, transports us to the early age of deep sea diving. Despite its age, the story has a timeless quality and remains captivating with its imaginative storytelling. To conclude the show, we end with a humorous and tongue-in-cheek story called Navy Day by Harry Harrison (One of Ron's favorite authors). This lighthearted tale from 1954 offers a satirical take on the future of technology and the military, leaving listeners with a chuckle and a thought-provoking message.

It was suggested to me by Jamar Linkous from New York. He first read this story as a kid and it stuck with him. Jamar decided to track it down and found it on . It is a unique story and one that doesn't really sound like something that was written in 1891.

RAS #621 - Brave New World

1/4/2024
On this episode of Ron’s Amazing Stories we present a tale that should shock you. Brave New World was written by English author Aldous Huxley in 1931. It took the world by storm, but not everyone was happy about it. In fact, it is one of the most banned novels on record. The story is set in a dystopian future where society is controlled by a totalitarian government. People are born in test tubes and conditioned from birth to be happy and obedient. There is no freedom, no individuality, and no dissent. The protagonist of the story is a young man named John who is born outside of the system. He is raised in the countryside and learns about the true nature of the world. When he is brought to the city, he is shocked by what he sees. He cannot believe that people would give up their freedom for a life of comfort and conformity. John's story is a cautionary tale about the dangers of totalitarianism. It is a warning about what can happen when we allow the government to control too much of our lives. A Brave New World is a powerful and thought-provoking novel that is still relevant today. It is a story that everyone should hear, even if it makes them uncomfortable. Featured Story - Brave New World Our featured story was first published by Chatto & Windus in August of 1932.
