Many of you have been quite patient with me as I have continued to promote my work in progress, the NightWatch Podcast. I am so grateful for all of the kind words I have received and the many messages of encouragement.
It is taking me a good bit longer to develop and produce these podcasts than I had anticipated. Therefore, it only seemed fair that I should at minimum reveal just a little bit more of my product in process. I offer a small gift, from me to you.
And so here you will find several samples of full length podcasts pulled from my growing collection. I have several strands of stories going. And here, I am providing at least one from each group. I have also uploaded, for lack of a better term, a “bonus” podcast that is a good bit longer than the others. You can read about it, and the others, below.
A quick overview of my basic vision, and the reasoning behind why I have decided to go with sound instead of just words on a screen. Approx. 4-½ minutes in length.
AMERICA’S STORY (As I Understand It)
We take a quick tour of America, from her earliest days to the meeting of the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific Railroads. The sweeping landscape upon which the American story has been told. Approx. 4 minutes in length.
The year was 1962. I was eleven years old. I began climbing a tall spindly tree in order to get a glimpse of the Cleveland city skyline. I reached the top. I saw the skyline. I lingered a while and savored my view. I can still see the seared image in my mind. I had arrived at a vantage point and beheld a panorama. Understanding history can help us do that too. Approx. 4-½ minutes in length.
I call myself The Famished Patriot. I am constantly hungry to learn more and more about America’s history. In this episode, I begin telling the story of God’s providential planting of the love-of-country seed in my youthful heart. Approx. 4-½ minutes in length.
I am introducing you to several fictional characters from a novel I had the privilege of co-authoring, The book is titled Bloodlines. This episode introduces the podcast subscriber to Eli McDonald, the single offspring of Will and Nikitchecame McDonald – Will a wily frontiersman, and Nikitchecame (Nikki), a Shawnee Princess. A powerful “word” was spoken over Will and Nikki’s parents at their wedding, by the soon-to-be Shawnee leader, Tecumseh. The “word” takes on a life of its own in Eli’s life as he struggles to understand who he is and what God has called him to do. Approx. 5 minutes in length.
Ride with me as I travel through a thunderstorm from Leesburg, VA to my home in Manassas. As the thunder rumbles off in the distance, I muse aloud about Virginia’s rich landscape and several of her highways, each named after a famous Virginian. Approx. 13 minutes in length.
