The Singing Sister is Available Now as a Single

Remember the song that Arlene sang to Gwen back in Chapter 6 and again in Chapter 9? We know at least some of you do, because you wrote in to tell us how much you loved it, and to ask whether it was available as a standalone track.

Well…it is now! We re-recorded it with a new arrangement and live instruments. Head over to to purchase it for $1 (or more if you’d like to be very kind. Patreon subscribers, check your Patreon feed for a coupon code to save 50¢.)

And for today’s bonus content, we talked to the talented folks involved for insight into making the song.

This week’s fact, which we hope you’ll find interesting, is this: Every chapter of THE ONCE AND FUTURE NERD starts as a television script with no narration, and is only later adapted to the audio play format that you hear. This was kind of out of our control at first, but now I’m really glad it’s turned out this way.
