This recording from LonCon3 features Foz Meadows, Patricia Ash, Liz de Jager, Shaun Duke, and Erin Underwood talking about book blogs, YA, book promotion, and much more.  Though the panel was originally meant to focus entirely on YA book blogging, we took things in a more general direction.

Here’s the panel description:

Bloggers have become an integral part of YA book promotion. How do authors find these bloggers? Why should readers trust their opinions? What are the best book blogs out there right now and what makes them so useful?

245. The Philosophical Mecha Panel at LonCon3

21 Dec

The robot, the human, and the inhuman, oh my!  Recorded at LonCon3 / Worldcon, this panel features David G. Shaw, Madeline Ashby, Shaun Duke, and Jade Ka discussing mecha, the self, and the other compelling philosophical questions raised by the very notion of mecha.

Here’s the panel description:

When is a giant robot more than just a giant robot? Many of the best and most famous anime — such as Evangelion, Gasaraki, or Flag — use the mecha as a tool to explore politics, philosophy, and the human condition. What is the conception of the human explored in such series, and how is it mediated by technological experience?

We hope you enjoy the episode!
