Listen to Cicadas Here

It's been a few years since the last outbreak of Cicadas. But from all the recent buzz, it seems they've returned.

My short story, "Cicadas," appeared on National Public Radio's Baltimore station, WYPR, earlier this month. "Cicadas" opened up the weekly radio program, The Signal, NPR's "weekly tour through hidden corners of Maryland's cultural landscape." The program aired at 12 noon and again at 7 p.m. on Friday, September 5.

WYPR had this to say about the story: "Many a florid metaphor has been penned about the buzz of young romance, but Signal contributor Eric D. Goodman may be the first to compare it a seething horde of insects. He joins us with a skeptic's love story called Cicadas."

The "Cicadas" reading even infested the Baltimore Sun.

Not to mention the CityLit Project.

Missed the broadcast? Then find out what the buzz is about! Listen to NPR's pod cast of this "story about romance, cynicism and a wedding set against the otherworldly buzz of Horde X."

Or, go directly to the "Cicadacast" here.

Learn more about The Signal, and even see a picture of a Cicada, at their website.
