The Perfect Blend for Writers and Fans

Having produced over 200 episodes at the time of this review, The Dead Robots' Society has earned a well-deserved place among the "must listen" writing and literary podcasts of the podosphere.

Each week, Justin Macumber and co-hosts Terry Mixon and Eliyanna Kaiser (the current hosts of the podcast) present content that is engaging, relevant, and diverse. If the interviews with the authors, editors, publishers, game designers, and artists that are defining publishing and new media aren't enough to catch your attention, then tune in for the brainstorming sessions where the team workshops a story idea. Or listen as they explore the topical and relevant issues facing writers in the age of e-books, self-publishing, and podcasting. Each host brings extensive experience from their own publishing achievements to inform and expand the discussion.

Underscoring the topical and intriguing content is the warmth and banter of a group of writers who actually like each other and don't take themselves too seriously. These people live with the same fears and doubts that plague every writer and the honesty with which they offer their perspectives is perhaps the most endearing and laudible quality of the podcast.

I've been listening to them for almost a year now, and they've inspired me in many ways, not the least of which is to pursue my own podcasting efforts. If you AREN'T listening to the Dead Robots' Society, then you are missing out on one of the most vital and entertaining podcasts available.

Great Show

Justin and the rest of the Dead Robots crew provide an entertaining and insightful look into the obstacles
of becoming a published author.keep up the great work guys.

Sm1ley rates this one top notch!

I guess I'm a little confused by the previous reviewer's post. I suppose DRS is not for everyone, but I have nothing but praise for them. I was once the president of a local writers' critique group, and through that office was afforded the opportunity to meet with, and often have informal dinners with many published authors, publishers, agents and editors. Those discussions were gold for an aspiring writer like me.

Let me tell you, for an honest and comprehensive look at the craft and business of writing, these roundtable style podcasts with Justin, Ryan, and Terry rate up there with the best of those dinner discussions.

If you start at the beginning of their podcasts (and it WILL take a while, since they have been 'casting regularly and reliably for a few years now) you will have the opportunity to catch a time-lapse view into their evolution as aspiring writers. You get a chance to see how they go from "wannabes" to savvy craftsmen of the written word. You also get a realistic view of the ever changing business side of writing through their eyes, and those of their guests.

And speaking of guests, you will hear interviews with podcast novelists, gaming writers, traditional authors, and small press publishers. You will hear from them what their successes were, what their failures were, and what they think is on the horizon for the publishing industry in this time of changing technologies, and economic uncertainty. How better to learn, than from those who have blazed the trail before you?

I only wish I could give this one more than five stars.
