    Episode 33 - Interview with Daniel M. Bensen

    In this episode we chat with author Daniel M. Bensen about his new speculative biology novel Interchange.
    In this sequel to 2019's Junction, a group of humans attempt to travel across the many biomes of the alien planet beyond the wormhole on Earth. Daniel discusses how his worldbuilding process leant itself to creating the geography and biology of multiple planets spilling into and evolving on a single shared world. We also talk about writing and publishing in lockdown and his recent co-authored comic First Knife from Image Comics.
    Interchange, and it's prequel Junction, are out now from Flame Tree Press.

    The Tally Ho talks to Dr Santiago Sanchez-Pagés

    The Tally Ho talks to Dr Santiago Sanchez-Pagés

    Welcome to The Tally Ho, a podcast about the classic TV series The Prisoner.
    In this episode we had the pleasure of speaking to Dr Santiago Sanchez-Pagés about his new book 'No Soy Un Número' ('I Am Not a Number'), the world's first book written about The Prisoner in Castilian.
    Ten years in the making, Santiago's book explores McGoohan's TV masterpiece in the cultural context of the 1960s in which it emerged, with fascinating insights into its cinematic influences and lasting impact.
    'No Soy Un Número' is available now from Applehead Books. You can also find more of Santiago's writing on economics, politics and pop culture via his website.
    Santiago is an Associate Professor in Economics at Kings College London and his latest academic work can be found on the university's website, and you can also follow him on Twitter.

    Episode 32 - Unconventional Conventions

    Episode 32 - Unconventional Conventions

    With the pandemic interrupting the 2020 convention calendar, we discuss its impact on different events. We ask how it may not only affect the con-going experience, but also could lead to longer term changes, which could in fact have a positive effect on content, attendance, accessibilty and representation. But how can con-runners embrace the opportunites of new technology whilst maintaining longstanding elements of physical cons that content creators rely on?
    Let us know what you think about conventions and what you would like to see in the future. Is the move to virtual content permanent? How do you keep the spirit of a convention alive?

One of my favourite podcasts

Becks and Eeson are chill and funny and insightful, whether it's talking about David Lynch (cherry pie and coffee) or Patrick McGoohan/The Prisoner (Tally Ho).

Reviews, re-watches, interviews, guests, and more. Highly recommended!
