By 2013, I’d cut back to a monthly schedule, since I was unable to maintain the twice-a-month schedule I’d intended on (and managed the first year or so). However, August 2013 saw the release of Ragnarok and Roll: Tales of Cassie Zukav, Weirdness Magnet, which collected the extant Key West-based urban fantasy tales, and also had several more new ones as well. In these two episodes, both released the month of the collection’s release, I read two of the original ones, both of which feature figures from Norse mythology.
Episode 33: “Love Over and Over,” which chronicles the love affair between Loki and Sigyn.
Episode 34: “God of Blunder,” in which Thor comes to Key West, and creates quite the impression…

Music: “Last of Your Line” by Boogie Knights (Episode 33) and “Have Another Drink On Me” by Steve Rosenhaus (Episode 34).
By early October 2012, The Chronic Rift hadn’t done a new In Review episode in quite some time. I do the “Couch Potato Salad” TV review segment for those episodes, and I’d had all these shows I wanted to talk about, and nowhere to talk about them–
–except maybe my podcast! In this episode, I reviewed then-new shows Elementary, Revolution, Vegas, and Last Resort, as well as looks at returning shows The Big Bang Theory, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Person of Interest, 2 Broke Girls, and Castle.
(Interesting to note that, four years later, only one of the new shows, Elementary, is still on the air, while three of the five returning shows — BBT, SVU, and 2BG — are still going strong.)
Music: “Cherry Red” by the Don’t Quit Your Day Job Players.
