Beschreibung

Author David Barr Kirtley discusses geek culture with guests such as George R. R. Martin (#22), Richard Dawkins (#46), Paul Krugman (#61), Simon Pegg (#39), Margaret Atwood (#94), Philip Pullman (#76), Neil deGrasse Tyson (#32), and Ursula K. Le Guin (#65). The A.V. Club calls the show, "An informative and impressively in-depth podcast well worth checking out," and io9 lists it as one of "13 Smart Podcasts That Will Feed Your Hunger for Knowledge and Ideas." NPR's earbuds.fm lists the show as a recommended podcast, and CBC Radio writes, "You may not think a podcast about science fiction and fantasy would be the place to go for political insight, but -- it is. Geek's Guide to the Galaxy manages to be more insightful about politics than many pundits." Help crowdfund us at patreon.com/geeks

Kundenrezensionen

Contemporary SF & Fantasy interviews

The Geek's Guide to the Galaxy is a bi-weekly podcast, during which the two hosts John Joseph Adams and David Barr Kirtley interview contemporary Science Fiction and Fantasy authors. The interviews last for about half an hour and are followed by a second half hour of John's and David's commentary.
Interviewed authors up to now were e.g. G.R.R Martin, The Tolkien Professor, or Cherie Priest.
Especially the commentary section adds a lot of additional material for further reading and exploration.
The audio quality is sometimes less than optimal, but hey, the content is great.
Highly recommended.
Similar Podcasts are e.g. Schriftsonar, or the Incomparable.

well worth listening to

This podcast manages to get some of the big names of fiction to make guest appearances.

In regards to topics covered this is a very well done pod-cast covering a huge range of different questions. The inclusion of the unique point of view of both hosts as authors and/or editors provides an interesting view into the industry and I just can't get enough of those little anecdotes when the hosts tell about how they met some now famous authors years ago and what kind of persons they are. Audio quality is sometimes extremely bad depending on the quality of the recorded phone conversation with their guests. That aside, production quality is really good. This is a podcast I can really recommend for all fans of fiction.

Are there things I'd love to see change? Yes there are:
I wish some of the "jokes" wouldn't just fizzle because you can almost feel that the co-host host thinks.. "not funny dude". So please continue your refreshing journey though fiction and related topics but refrain from making jokes, laughing about it before your co-host can react. Humor is always welcome, humor that only one person apparently finds funny, not so much.

worth your time

Every time, at least, worth listining in.
