Wham Bam Stories by Simpson

By: Thomas William Simpson
  • Summary

  • Want to hear some entertaining stories but don't have a lot of time. The stories in this podcast are short and tough or short and sweet. Few exceed ten minutes, the outer limit of the average American's attention span. Simpson has been writing fiction for a long time and has perfected the short short story. Subject matter varies considerably. Sidewinder features a hip young couple who have left Silicon Valley for New Mexico where they've opened an adult toys shop, but suddenly their one-year-old is about to crawl onto the tracks of the Union Pacific. In After the Wedding, a pair of young lovers find themselves confronting an OxyContin overdose in the middle of the night in an abandoned motel. In Music by the Sea, a middle age woman who has recently lost her husband finally overcomes the stage fright that had for decades silenced her brilliant cello playing. Wham Bam Stories by Simpson are packed with humor, pathos, vulnerability, humanity, and originality. Read by the author without editing, polishing, or any high tech gadgetry. Just the raw material for the listener's listening pleasure. Sit back, turn up the volume, as Simpson can be a whisperer, and enjoy.

    As a kid, because of her looks, she was used and abused, deceived and exploited. They used her to hawk perfume and blue jeans, underwear and dreams.

    But she was tough, resilient, ambitious. She channeled that abuse and exploitation to build her own company, to make millions, to beat them at their own game. 

    But at what price?

    A monument to virility. Manly to the core. Fifty years chasing the ladies. But, alas, not so much anymore.

    He started young, made women his vocation. Unfortunately it's looking like he'll need a fresh inspiration.

    Times they are a-changin, machinery all worn out. Poor boy's emasculated, of that there can be no doubt.
