Genrelisation is a podcast about books. Each episode, we read two books that are a little bit the same, bring some friends together and try to explain what they're really about.

    Episode 8: It's About Dragons (Part 1)

    Episode 8: It's About Dragons (Part 1)

    This episode we get fired up about tails of dragons reading A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan and Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. We go on flights of fancy about class, the dragons that surround us, and why Anne McCaffery should’ve scaled back on the Pern books.

    We’re joined by Gina Rushton, Buzzfeed reporter, and James Baxter-Gilbert, resident IRL dragon expert (did you think we would just wing it?).

    Give it a listen, we promise not to drag on.

    We're back, and we're reading. What an outrage! What a menace! The books were good though, so come find out why. Alex got distracted by talking about some other content formats in the episode as well, so get excited.

    4 3 2 1 - Paul Aster

    You - Austin Grossman

    The Night Masquerade - Nnedi Okorafor

    Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine - Gail Honeyman

    Episode 7: It's About Animal Pals (Some of Part 2)

    Episode 7: It's About Animal Pals (Some of Part 2)

    What are ghosts? Will Alfie knock over a bunch of cymbals? Alex talks about how he was a king’s poop-collector in a past life and we also debate the merit of having your soul outside your body in physical form ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    This episode, we're reading The Northern Lights (Golden Compass) by Phillip Pullman and Zoo City by Lauren Beukes. We're joined by two very excellent guests: Courtney Fry, who writes for Pedestrian, covering music, food, and pets, and their weekly RuPaul's Drag Race recaps (you can also find her words in the SMH's album reviews) and Alfie, who is a dog and doesn't know how to read or write but is v cute.   

    Also half the episode is missing (sorry)

    This episode, we're reading The Northern Lights (Golden Compasss) by Phillip Pullman and Zoo City by Lauren Beukes. We're joined by two very excellent guests: Courtney Fry, who writes for Pedestrian, covering music, food, and pets, and their weekly RuPaul's Drag Race recaps (you can also find her words in the SMH's album reviews) and Alfie, who is a dog and doesn't know how to read or write but is v cute.   

    We talk about the niche genre of animal companion fantasy, Matt Demons, the Suck Fairy and who's started calling Alex daddy. 

    Bonus ASMR from both Alfie and Alex chewing on things loudly.

    Prequel to Episode 7: The Book Of Dust

    Prequel to Episode 7: The Book Of Dust

    Before we launch into an episode on Animal Pals feat. Northern Lights and Zoo City, we talk about The Book Of Dust, Philip Pullman's latest step into a world full of the best animal friends you've ever imagined. This episode does have spoilers and, surprise, one of us likes it and the other does not. 

    Five dollars if you can figure out who.

    We're back and (literally) bigger than ever in a bumper episode talking about the best and worst books we read in 2018, and spend at least a little time talking about why all books need dragons, what happens when you use pretention as an argument, and what thhe future of books looks like. 

    We're joined comedian and producer Kara Schlegl, host of history podcast little tiny (out now from the ABC). You can find her online as @karaschlegl. Returning for the third time, it’s friend of the show, real life enemy, and repentant member of Sydney’s theatreati Pierce Wilcox, online as @pierceindeed.
