You may have come here because we were nominated for a 2014 Hugo Award for best Fancast. In which case, welcome!
Skiffy and Fanty is a blog, and most pertinently, a weekly fan podcast created by Shaun Duke and Jen Zink, Me, I’m Paul Weimer. You probably know me as @princejvstin on Twitter. If you run an F/SF blog, its likely I’ve commented on it. I joined Skiffy and Fanty in 2012.
In 2013, the Skiffy and Fanty show added a whole bunch of new people in our efforts to bring genre goodness to you on the blog and on the podcast:
Mike R Underwood: Author, and works at Angry Robot Books
Julia Rios: Fiction Editor and Podcaster in her own right. (The Outer Alliance)
Stina Leicht: Fantasy Author ( Of Blood and Honey and And Blue Skies from Pain)
David Annandale: Fantasy Author of Warhammery goodness, Kaiju Master, and Teacher.
Skiffy and Fanty as a podcast has a couple of different varieties of episodes. We’ve been accused of having an identity crisis (hello, Jonathan McCalmont!) but we do all sorts of stuff on the podcast you might like to listen to:
We interview authors like Adam Christopher.
We have discussion episodes like, say, SF and Music with John Anealio and Peter Orullian
This year we are doing our World SF Tour, with roundtables of genre people to connect with fiction from around the world. Like our recent Brazilian SF episode
We sometimes watch something topical or not so topical and then discuss it. Like our opinions on the 1954 Godzilla.
And, perhaps most infamously, sometimes we get together, get inebriated and discuss horrible, bad SF movies. Like, yes, Sharknado!
We’re the Skiffy and Fanty podcast and we’re delighted for you to listen and tell us what you think.
