Wayne and I dropped off our ballots this morning. Tonight we're going to a friend's house to watch the results.

Nice review of the October Clarkesworld that includes a note about the podcast:

The podcast version of the same story, read by Cat Rambo, is equally impressive. Hines includes some Japanese terms and Rambo pronounces them correctly and smoothly so much so that one doesn't really realize there are actually foreign words in the story. She also adds a layer of meekness to the protagonist and a stern distinction between the various characters thanks to dialogue.

I was a little nervous about the Japanese pronunciations, so that was really pleasant to see.
