02 - The Witcher
Dave and Jamie delve deep into the dark world of The Witcher. Geralt, Yennifer, Ciri...hmm..: Who among them is good, who is evil? Actually, is anyone in this show good? Oh Yaskier, right. Toss a coin to your witcher, it’s gonna get dark in here. We’re strictly talking about the Netflix series on this one, sorry folks, Jamie hasn’t finished the games.
Episode 11: Speculative Fiction Panel LIVE from a Novel Idea Bookstore
Featuring Jon McGoran, M Tellez, and David Otter, and hosted by us, this speculative fiction panel was the liveliest, nerdiest, best conversation among writers that I've had in a long time. Listen to it if you're a spec fic writer, if you love spec fic, if you're a huge nerd, if you want to disrupt the literary hierarchy, or if you just want to listen in on an hour and a half of rambling. <br /><br /><a href='http://www.allportsopen.com/Forums.aspx?ForumGroupID=20'>Discuss this episode in our forums!</a>
Episode 10: Queer Representation Part 2- Kill Your Queers
Though all of our episodes explore difficult subject matter, this episode is definitely our saddest and most somber. It is the second part of our two part series on queer representation and focuses on the tropes surrounding queer death and suffering. Listener discretion is advised. What are your opinions on this harmful trope? Are there places where you've seen it appear that we've missed? We also pump the show Unhhhh, Orange World by Karen Russell, and the work of artist Sam Levson. Upcoming Events: Nov. 1st- Scary Storytelling Competition at Head and the Hand Bookstore at 7:30 Nov. 9th- Speculative Fiction Panel at A Novel Idea at 5:30<br /><br /><a href='http://www.allportsopen.com/Forums.aspx?ForumGroupID=20'>Discuss this episode in our forums!</a>
