Awards, angry men, and the Internet, oh my! And our final discussion of the Hugos, featuring Justin Landon (who started it all) and Jonathan McCalmont (who offers his insight into the whole situation), has arrived. We talk Hugo history, the fan categories, the culture of the Hugos and more. Plus, we offer our thoughts on Hugh Howey’s controversial comments (and behavior) and the cultural responses found in the comments. In other words: this week is one heck of a monster…
We hope you enjoy the episode!
