We’ve signed on two more guests for the Christmas break:
For the December 29th ‘cast, we’ll be joined by science fiction author Tony Daniel. Technically Tony’s already a GWC veteran as he sat in with us for Podcast #8, but this time he’ll be a featured guest here to talk aboutthe social implications of“downloading”— a topic he deals with extensively in his novel Metaplanetary and its sequel Superluminary. (Those links are to Amazon, BTW, but they’re not affiliate links; that’s not how we roll.) He recently taught a science fiction literature class at the University of Texas at Dallas, so he’ll also be able to lead us (and you) through some other famous treatments of the subject. We’re looking forward to it!
If you’re looking for a bit more info about Tony, he maintains a small FAQ.
On January 5th, the Rev. Dr. Jerome Wichelns will join us to discuss philosophy, religion, and mythology in terms of BSG. Dr. Wichelns holds his PhD in philosophy and currently serves as rector of the Shared Episcopal Ministry of Northern New York, having recently retired from teaching at the college level. We’re excited that he’s agreed to bring his substantial experience to bear to help us understand more about the BSG universe!
One more to go… We’ll keep you updated.
