Episode 89 — How to Placate Scifi and Fantasy Authors (Plus Some Silly) w/ Jason Sanford

27 Feb

Jason Sanford returns for a free-form discussion on all kinds of random nonsense.  We cover the hype surrounding J. K. Rowling’s new adult novel, the abuse of Seanan McGuire by readers (and the stupid things publishers do that hurt authors), the power of science fiction, plus a few silly related topics (including an embarrassing moment for Duke, who lives in an alternate universe of plurals).

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Episode 6.2 — Magical Realism and Book Love w/ Jason Sanford

21 Nov

Jason Sanford returns (are you noticing a trend, yet?) to talk with us about magical realism, interesting (and damn near annoying) news in the SF/F world, and what we want for Christmas.  It’s sure to be a fun ride, if not a little controversial (because Sanford is the Queen of Controversy, after all — or is it King?  We’re not sure, but we do know that he’s got a few things to say about this week’s news.  Emotional things.  From deep down in his heart!).

We hope you enjoy the episode!

Episode 4.0b — Religion in SF and Why Fantasy is More Popular

13 Jun

The second half of our super special episode is jam packed with skiffy and fanty goodness.  Jason Sanford, John Ottinger, and Adam take part in our discussion of religion in science fiction and why we think fantasy is more popular than science fiction.  More bad jokes are had at Shaun’s expense, but he eventually gets his revenge…

Tune in and enjoy!
