A Must Listen for SF Fans

Jonathan and Gary do a wonderful job keeping listeners up to date on happenings in the SF/F field. Highly recommend to anyone concerned with science fiction and fantasy. Five Stars!!!

Two Industry Insiders with a Long Historical Perspective

It can get a bit dry, but I always learn a lot about (1) the publishing industry and (2) the history of science fiction. I'm coming at this from a fannish place, so I tend to engage with my speculative fiction transformatively, which is obviously not how Jonathan and Gary engage with it. Which is good, because, again, they've been at this a long time and I get a lot out of their perspectives.

I'm also chuffed by how much time they spend trying to define "genre". They keep coming back to it like its an itch they can't help scratching and to be honest, it is a question that plagues me too. I don't think any of us will ever arrive at a definitive answer but I like the fact that they ask the question.

Occasionally enlightening

From time to time the show features interesting interviews or roundtable discussions, but when the two hosts are left to their own devices (which is most of the time) they testily chew over a handful of pet topics, usually debating who should win each year's awards and then whether or not awards mean anything.
