About Simo Sakari Aaltonen
He's written for several story-oriented computer games, including the psychological horror hit Serena, whose download count is now in the millions. His current projects include additional writing and revisions under Agustín Cordes for Senscape's upcoming epic first-person adventure game Asylum, screenplays, a 6-volume non-fiction book series on the TV series Northern Exposure, and musical compositions.
His podcasts "What Now with Simo" and "As Fresh as Northern Exposure" are on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and at https://rss.com/podcasts/simo.
This podcast is my central outlet for thoughts, feelings, passing fancies, memories, dreams, appreciations, and more.
Maybe a better metaphor would be a flickering campfire after a long day out in the wild — or in the inner wild. Or perhaps a random book with a flashlight under the blanket in a beautiful summer cottage, somewhere in eternity.
I record every episode extemporaneously, transcribe them afterwards, and eventually collect each season into these printed volumes. Part journal, part memoir, part musings on art and life, part strange humour, and part me reaching out to other souls out there.
This edition of the first season of the podcast brings the more than 40,000 words onto the printed page, for reading or leafing through at your own pace.
This also makes the podcast available in its entirety to everyone with any hearing loss.
Unedited, unexpurgated, and with an introduction, table-of-contents summaries in the style of old books, and a few footnotes.
Also part of this season are Shakespeare’s Sonnet 98 and H. P. Lovecraft’s prose poem “Ex Oblivione”.
