EphemRadio Podcast #70 – The man in a wheelchair waiting at the bus stop while it was snowing

I take a break from the typical podcast format to analyse, question, explore and rant a little bit (but not too much) about a candid photo I have on my smart phone of a middle-aged man I saw in a wheelchair waiting at a bus stop during the first snow of winter 2017-2018.

Official Ephemeral Rift Merchandise Now Available via Spreadshirt.com

I have finally launched a shop via Spreadshirt.com starting with the “I hope you are doing well” phrase. In the coming months, and (Cthulhu willing) years, I’ll be offering and creating many more designs based on content from my YouTube channel and beyond (i.e. completely new designs and ideas unrelated to the channel.)

As of the date of this post, I am currently working on a design for “Arkham Sanitarium” and hope to have that available by the end of November (2017). There are plans for designs of specific characters as well, such as Corvus, Margaret, Dave, and who knows who or what else.

Keep in mind that you can alter the color of the design by clicking on “Adjust design or choose different product” when hovering over the product image.

While the shop also appears here on my website, it is merely a superficial placeholder. All transaction data takes place over at spreadshirt.com.
