I've ordered a few more genre and "literature" collections from various sources. I also know that there are some magazines that have an audio division for their short stories, which I wouldn't think would be awesome until now.
I do have some audiobooks, which I listen to while I'm doing something that's not reading or writing (video games, photo editing, falling asleep, cooking, cleaning, sewing, sex), because I hate sinking time into one thing when I'm perfectly capable of reading-that is, training my writer's brain-at the same time.
I'm not actually sure where this train of thought is going, but suffice it to say: David Likes AudioShorts and Can't Organize the Paragraphs of His Post Properly.
I did a lot of research a while back into hydroponics and off-Earth farming while writing a few stories. It's interesting, but also frustrating. It always makes me feel that Earth is just not properly organized and we should really get our act together. This isn't a "Where's my jetpack?" whine, this is a "Where's my basic food security for everybody?" question.
A lot of science fiction is too concerned with all the cool stuff we might have in the future without considering all the cool people we'll need to properly use it.
