Who’s up for another hard-hitting discussion episode? You are? Great!
Liz Bourke joins us for episode 87 to talk about LGBT discrimination in publishing, SF/F books for the ladyfolk (whatever that means), history from the classical period (with a little medieval history for good measure), and SF/F in the global sphere (and the women on the margins therein). Our conversation wanders to all kinds of interesting side topics — in true discussion fashion. We had a blast, and we hope you will too!
