I use the BeyondPod app for android. It wasn't picking up the 17-19 eps either, but is now working just fine. whatever Zendane did to fix the iTunes feed, seemed to fix it on mine too.

Episode 21 – The Speaker of Truths - is now available at the The Eve Reader Website. This Chronicle is the story of the uprising against the cruel Heir Aritcio Kor-Azor, and the punishment in response to his sadistic rule.

This story has a special place in my heart, so to speak. When I first envisioned placing the Chronicles into an audio format, this was one of two stories that caught my eye as a candidate for recording. Eventually I went with what became Episode 0 - The Jovian Wet Grave - and I always wanted to return to The Speaker of Truths for recording. The message in this story, of cruelty and inevitable punishment as a consequence of that cruelty, is a recurring theme throughout Eve both in the lore and in the game itself. I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did.

Regarding podcasting applications, I downloaded one for my phone and it was able to pick out the latest episode (#20 when I tried it). It also just picked up this episode a few minutes ago. iTunes should pick up on that within a few hours, I believe - they don't make their updating scheme or schedule public, so if it doesn't show up today I'll dispatch the Elite Hamster Squadron again.

Thank you for the feedback, both in kind words and suggestions to make the recordings a better experience for everyone. For the curious, the next episode will be the sequel (of sorts) to this story - The Part Where I Play the Devil.

Thanks again for your fine work.

By any chance, are you planning on doing the Rubicon chronicle?

Just thought it would be cool to do it before the expansion came out.

Hey
I have another request:
https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/The_Part_Where_I_Play_the_Devil_(Chronicle)

It's the aid of Aritcio Kor-Azor, Alder Brenean who Aritcio takes in after his personal change from the tortures he endure figured it would be an interesting story to hear after last chronicle you read fo us.

Episode 22 – The Part Where I Play The Devil - is now available at the The Eve Reader Website. As Orland Yormes noted, this is a "sequel" of sorts to The Speaker of Truths. Aritcio Kor-Azor is a new man with a new purpose in life - to better the lives of his people. This is the story of how he handles a corrupt system and the ruler who thinks as Aritcio once did.

Yes, I plan on recording the Rubicon chronicle, ideally releasing it on patch day. If you haven't read it yet I recommend that you have a look at The Only Way Out Is Through. Who does the main character work for...

Just in time for the upcoming Rubicon patch, Episode 23 – The Only Way Out Is Through - is now available at the The Eve Reader Website. This Chronicle is the story of a scientist working within a secret laboratory, possibly one of the upcoming Ghost sites.

As I write this, the Rubicon patch is just hours away. I wonder if the infamous Villard Wheels will make another appearance in the post-Rubicon universe...

Just finished listening to this on my drive to work. Amazing work as always.

Thanks for taking my request, thought I guess you planned to do this one anyway :)

Excellent work as always. You may want to consider posting to http://www.reddit.com/r/Eve when you put out new episodes. i bet a fair number of guys over there would appreciate this. It would also really expand your listener base.

keep up the good work as always,

Could I make a request for my favorite chronicle so far, Myth of a Salesman? There isn't any dialogue so I'm not sure if it's your style

I'm sure there are a lot of wannabe brokers in EVE :)

Zaitsev Sabezan, I am always interested in ideas that will expand the potential listener base and I will look into posting on Reddit. I was pleased to see the podcast mentioned in a Reddit thread recently and if their community is okay with posting about the podcast then I'll write something up.

Maximus Decimal, thank you. While I don't solicit donations of any kind (I don't even run ads on my website), I do appreciate it.

Mr Veda, that particular Chronicle is an excellent choice and I would be glad to read it. Lack of dialogue is not a problem - in fact, one of my favorite Chronicles, the Methods of Torture (Caldari) story has no dialogue whatsoever and I think it came out quite well. However, since Myth of a Salesman is a rather short story I think I'll pair it with another story about the Broker... Big Fish, Little Fish.

Thank you so much and I'll be more than happy to send some ISK as well for your fine work

Have you thought of promoting on twitter using #tweetfleet?

Initially, I was slightly put off EVE due to the lack of lore but this has opened my eyes and proved me wrong.

I'm really looking forward to the Source book when that comes out.

Episode 24 - Myth of a Salesman and Big Fish, Little Fish - is now available at the The Eve Reader Website. This is an episode with two Chronicles, both about the enigmatic entity known as The Broker. Myth of a Salesman gives us background on this mysterious person, and Big Fish, Little Fish lets us see him in action.

The advice about Twitter is an excellent suggestion, and I will let #Tweetfleet know! If you would like to follow the podcast, @Zendane_Eve is my username.

Work on the next Chronicle has already begun and the recording will be a bit... sinister.

Just finished listening to episode 24 on the walk to work

Really cool, you do a great job of bringing the characters to life and it was fun to listen to one of my favorite characters :)

Looking forward to seeing what sinister tales are in store...

Episode 25 is now available at the The Eve Reader Website. Imagine you are a broken creation, in search of repair and renewal. Add in the insanity of the rogue drones and you have today’s Chronicle, Postnatal.

Oh, and... be sure to stick around past the end of the credits.
