    "Brings back memories of my uncle"

    I listened to three episodes of X Minus One from Audible. The recordings reminded me of my uncle's love for old radio programs. Each episode was different and the character's brought the short stories to life. I would be interested in listening to more episodes.

    "A Fun Look at Ourselves"

    No Crime, No Violence, No Booze? Is this what you would expect from a colony cut off from earth for 100 years? Now Contact is re-established and to make the Earth men happy the Colony has employed their first criminal or is it assigned? But how do you become a criminal? Enjoy... Well worth the cost anytime.
