Gerald, Rammy, and Anais discuss “A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury, a brilliantly visual story that sets the pace for an entire genre of plot structures, and explores a theme of man v. nature v. time. Man’s hubris is put to the test with dire, unintended consequences.

Next week’s story: An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose Bierce

Rated: Clean

Happy Halloween! Listener Nick Huard recommended a spooky Ray Bradbury story for Halloween, and we couldn’t resist! Gerald, Rammy, and Anais discuss “The Crowd” by Ray Bradbury. Our hosts discuss the supernatural elements and blink-and-you’ll-miss-it plot twist at the very end. Anais compares the original story discussed on this podcast to the made-for-TV version that aired in a 1985 episode of The Ray Bradbury Theater. We highly recommend you watch the TV episode of the crowd on Youtube.
