To kick-off Third Coast's summer fundraiser, we're doing what we do best — sharing great radio from around the world — with some extra special feature podcasts over the next two weeks.

On this episode, Re:sound producer Dennis Funk talks to Ann Heppermann and Martin Johnson founders of the new, Third Coast-inspired audio fiction competition, The Sarah Awards.

We also hear a few pieces that will feature on their new podcast Serendipity and learn about their Very Very Short Short Fiction Contest.

FEATURING:

Every Heart Has a Limited Amount of Heartbeats by Martin Johnson ( Serendipity , 2015)

We will all die, and those who are already dead slowly becomes faint memories, that can be awakened, and relived.

I Blinked and I Was 30 by Andrea Silenzi ( Serendipity , 2015)

On Andrea's 30th birthday, the universe gave her an impossible assignment. Could she use that day to come to terms with everything she’d done before, and everything she’d hope to do now?
