In today’s episode of Signal Boost, Jen talks to Claudie Arseneault about her work, including the recently released second book of the City of Spires trilogy, City of Betrayal. They discuss the mosaic narrative of City of Spires, found families, the solar punk genre and her first book, Viral Airwaves, and what inspired Claudie to create the Aromantic and Asexual Speculative Fiction Database.
Then Brandon O’Brien, speculative poet and poetry editor, joins Shaun to talk about what draws him to poetry as a medium, his classical and local influences, how he explores the African diaspora from a Caribbean perspective in his work, and about FIYAH Magazine and what he looks for in a good speculative fiction poem.
