Cold Reads

3

Cold Reads was a weekly reading series by Nathaniel Tower. The reading series ran for approximately 5 months. There are currently no plans to resurrect Cold Reads. You can still find the podcast on PodOmatic or iTunes.

Cold Reads Cover

Each week, Nathaniel invites a writer to submit his or her wildest, funniest, or most disturbing story of under 1500 words. Without reading through or practicing, or even knowing what the story is about, Nathaniel will perform an audio of the story (a cold read). He will attempt to keep his composure as he reads through whatever craziness the author has concocted. The audio is available as a podcast in various places around the web.
