May 16 Press Release


May 16, 2017 – Sundress Podcast, The SAFTAcast, goes on indefinite hiatus.

Host Scott C apologizes for lack of communication.

Binghamton, NY – On March 24, The SAFTAcast celebrated its third “birthday” with episode 71. Aside from a couple of promos in the weeks that followed, there has been nothing from the show – no episodes, promos, or social media communication. This had led to speculation that the podcast has been abruptly abandoned.

SAFTAcast host Scott C would like to apologize for this “radio silence.” He agrees that it was not fair to keep listeners and fans uninformed for so long.

“I’ve heard from listeners, former guests, and friends that they miss the show and who were surprised it went quiet with no notice,” said Scott C. “Unfortunately, I’ve had to devote myself to some unexpected personal matters this spring. Due to their sensitive nature, I did not say anything on social media about the show, either directly or through the podcast’s website.”

Scott C adds that The SAFTAcast prides itself on being a unique program and knows listeners demand a certain level of quality from it. He feels the show would suffer if he is not able to completely dedicate to each episode. As such, The SAFTAcast will be going on an indefinite hiatus, effective immediately. It hopes to return this summer but is not setting a specific date at this time.

Scott C and The SAFTAcast would like to thank the listeners and fans for their support throughout the past three years, and the podcast looks forward to continuing its mission of getting to know writers, editors, and publishers beyond their creative works.

Episode 72 – Not right now

Sorry, everyone. We have had to push back our new episode for the time being. Here, let Scott C explain why. Kind of.

Promo – March 30, 2017

This week, Scott C looks toward the future of this show – and is not sure about what he sees.

Episode 71 – Jordan D. White RETURNS

Happy 3rd Birthday this podcast! To celebrate, we invited one of our first guests – Marvel Comics’ Jordan D. White – back. But it’s not a “catch up” so much as a chat about The Purge, homemade horror movies, film analysis, and Jordan’s music “career.”

Find Jordan’s work at your local comic shop, his podcasting work at Sailor Business, and groove on his uke covers at his YouTube channel.


Promo – March 16, 2017

Next week is our 3rd “birthday” show! To announce our guest, Scott C meets with his boss.

The voice of “Chief” was performed by Vania Smrkovski

Busy week here at The SAFTAcast. Only time to tell you about the next show. Gotta kinda get back to, uh, something.


Episode 69 – Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo

To know Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo is to know family, California, and good 80s TV, as you will soon hear. Plus, she and Scott C decide on a “middle ground” between an introduction handshake and a hug.

Pick up your copy of Posada: Offerings of Witness and Refuge today from Sundress Publications, and be sure to check out her work with Women Who Submit and her personal site.



Promo – Feb. 16, 2017

There is one name, one voice, one theme that scares Gen X’rs like no other. Scott C channels him to announce our next guest.


The theme for Unsolved Mysteries was composed by Michael Boyd and Gary Remal Malkin. It is used here for entertainment purposes only and neither the composers, performers, Buena Vista Television, nor FilmRise have endorsed any part of this podcast or parent organization.

Episode 68 – Ruth Foley

Planning to visit Massachusetts? Ruth Foley says “don’t go see Plymouth rock.” And you can trust her, because she knows much about many things: poetry, screen printing, the NE Patriots, and sketch comedy. This is an episode and then some.

Check out Ruth’s handiwork at Sentimental Asylum and the Etsy store.

And don’t forget that this week we’re “at AWP” in spirit. Enter and win our annual “Mugshot” contest!
