Swamp Gas, Episode 1: Northwestward by Isaac Asimov


Welcome to Episode 1 of Swamp Gas! This was kind of an exercise to put a podcast together.

It’s basically me reading a Batman story by Isaac Asimov entitled “Northwestward.” Man, it was harder reading aloud than I thought. Editing the stutters, false starts, swallowed words was a chore. Hopefully I’ll get better as I go along.

I really like this story. Perhaps material for the next Batman blockbuster? This is actually the most boring Batman story I have ever read, but that doesn’t stop it from being pretty great.

Disclaimer: This podcast is merely a hobby and the use of the materials by Mr. Asimov are done with no monetary gain in mind and out of appreciation for his entertaining literary voice. “Northwestward” appears in The Further Adventures of The Batman, edited by Martin H. Greenberg.
