    Revenge with Marjorie Liu

    Revenge with Marjorie Liu

    We actually recorded this episode WAY back in January, just after Biden’s inauguration in the US. So, naturally, there is a bit of politics in this one given how wrapped up we all were in what was going on… you’ve been warned! An eye for an eye. You hurt me, I’ll hurt you right back. Not […]

    Moving the frontier – with Stark Holborn

    Moving the frontier – with Stark Holborn

    The frontier. The edge of civilisation. So far from the central government that laws are more like ‘guidelines’. Where the sheriffs are crooked and the criminals ruthless; trains rarely go un-sacked and the cattle drive never goes to plan. Oh, and don’t forget the drought. Life on the frontier is never easy.

    Communities with Caroline Hardaker and Gabriela Houston

    Communities with Caroline Hardaker and Gabriela Houston

    When you look, communities are everywhere. They can be the people where you live, the people who share the same interest as you, the people you volunteer with. They can be as small as a household or as big as a city. Communities, societies, political and religious beliefs all intertwine so that sometimes it’s impossible […]
