S06 E05: Cybernauts

We're always on the cutting edge with this show, what with our use of cool new techno words and our talking at length about Detroit a second time in one season. How do we keep things so fresh? Enjoy!

S06 E03: The Peanut Gallery

Everyone's a critic... in this episode, at least. Though the topics vary, Alissa and Tyler  can invariablyform half-baked opinions on them: the Oscars, the weather, fashion, graphic novels, movies... And in the highest tradition of Internet citizen journalism, we expect people to want to hear them. Enjoy!

S06 E01: Resolute

Welcome to a new season of Awkward Silences (Radio (Show)). We've got a new intro tune, done away with the awkward talking over-top and... well, actually, that's about all the improvements we've made, really. The rest is just, umm, classic ASR. That's a good thing, though, right?


The Fox says Detroit's still got something left in the tank.

S05 E15: Gee Whiz, It’s Christmas

We can hardly put into words the joy with which we present, after a 23-month delay, an ASR Christmas episode! Which I guess is why we're an audio podcast, and not an e-book. Enjoy!


No caption necessary on this one...

S05 E14: Merry Times

No, it's not our Christmas episode (that's next), but rather a oh-so-subtle reference to Alissa's Halifax trip. Or could it be a tongue-in-cheek take on Toronto's or Montreal's mayoral madhouses? In any case there's plenty of actual planning talk this episode, so buckle up and enjoy!


Ten points to the first person to catch the reference. Fifteen to those too cool to bother.


PLAYLIST
