Two stories based on “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.”
Main Fiction 1: “Greener” by Josh Roseman 03:10
Josh Roseman (not the trombonist; the other one) lives in Georgia (the state, not the country). His writing has appeared in Asimov’s, Escape Pod, and the Crossed Genres anthology Fat Girl in a Strange Land. His fiction has been reprinted by the Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine and StarShipSofa, and his voice has been heard on two Escape Artists and all four District of Wonders podcasts. He is a 2013 graduate of the Taos Toolbox writing workshop. When not writing, he mostly complains about the fact that he’s not writing.

I loved “Greener”. It made me bawl.
The podcast kept glitching out on me. Is that a problem with the episode, or with my player?
