    I really enjoyed this week’s episode. Mike DelGaudio is always a joy to listen to, and I was glad to see Peter Lewis back again. I’ve missed him! I liked the uncertain ending of My Grandfather’s Arms, though I did wonder about one thing… how did he do his second arm? Is that a plot hole, or something to point out the fact that the story is a lie, or did Jack take care of it for him?

      I’m more inclined to the unrealiabe narrator angle. Grandpa seems like quite the creative type, so I could see him bending the truth with his final story.

      You know, I was thinking the same thing; and the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the story is absolutely genius. I firmly believe that it was intentional.

      Yes, the narrator was unreliable. He needed to be unreliable. The rug was going to be pulled out from under us. Every good writer knows that you don’t mislead your readers so badly that the plot twist turns into a slap in the face. It was a way to prime us for the ending. When we heard that part of the story, something in our minds told us, “Yes, something isn’t adding up here.”

      I too discounted it as a logical error at first. Nope, it wasn’t. It was a way for our minds to start demanding a good explanation. And we got one towards the end. The explanation wasn’t the real plot twist though. It was the phrase etched into Jackie’s tombstone. The same one that the grandfather mentioned near the beginning of the interview. Again, it was another case of priming, and it was expertly subtle.

      That one phrase, and the narrator’s reaction to it changed the whole story. It made us wonder, what parts of this story absolutely true? What parts are allegorical of true events, and if so, what does the allegory mean?

      I thought it was an excellent piece of fiction, and I applaud Mr. Juliano.

    Unleashing Atlas reminded me a lot of Hellraiser.

    This was a dissppointment. Great premise but went nowhere. All I could picture in my mind was a senile Grandpa Simpson.
