Speculative fiction author Marc Watson and I discuss the conversations that shape worlds--both our own, and the fictional ones to which we escape. Plus, they dive into the reality of being a modern author and what to do with those pesky day jobs.
I dove into the churning political waters of near-future speculative fiction with 2/3 of the team who created the anthology AND THE LAST TRUMP SHALL SOUND. Cat Rambo discusses their focus on found family and the impact on the marginalized, lower-class community, while James Morrow shares his satirical if outlandish take on dismantling a Pence pseudo-monarchy.
YA fantasy author and podcaster Jenna Greene returns to the show to discuss what it's like writing dystopia when our world increasingly looks like one, and how she got started with podcasting! Plus an update on the sequels to REBORN.
