280. The Wonders and Politics of Steampunk w/ Cherie Priest, Beth Cato, and Jaymee Goh

17 Aug The SEA is Ours edited by Jaymee Goh and Joyce Chng

Machines, empire, and whitewashing, oh my!  In this special edition of our discussion feature, Shaun and Rachael talk to authors Cherie Priest, Beth Cato, and Jaymee Goh about the wonders and politics of steampunk.  We cover whitewashing on covers, the subversive qualities of steampunk, and the trials and tribulations of writing the genre in a world heavily influenced by empire.  In our last moments, we have some fun by talking about steampunk films and video games.  In the end, we only scratched the surface!

We hope you enjoy the episode!

If any of these strike your fancy, let us know in the comments! Continue reading
