'Ship It' by Britta Lundin
7 days ago
For this episode, Carrie and Jake discuss Britta Lundin's debut novel 'Ship It'. They also talk about experiences at conventions, their (fairly minor) encounters with fanfic, the weird pornographic banner that Jake's downstairs neighbors hung up on their porch, movies based on video games, and all manner of other things. Spoilers abound, so we recommend reading the book before listening! Both hosts are pretty ignorant about fanfic, so if you're interested in learning about it, or are curious about some of the things we mentioned in the episode, here are some links: The OTPodcast, a podcast by fanfic writers and readers about issues in fanfic -- the episode 'RPF: When Fanfiction Gets Real' is about 'real person fanfic' and may be of particular interest 'No Reservations: Narnia', in which Anthony Bourdain goes to Narnia '"No Reservations: Narnia," a Triumph of Anthony Bourdain Fan Fiction', a New Yorker article about the above work of fanfic and Bourdain's own reaction to it Sam Syke's 'Stages of a Toxic Fandom The 2013 incident where Jensen Ackles (who plays Dean Winchester in the the TV series 'Supernatural') was asked a question by a bisexual woman at a convention Q&A The woman who asked the question provided her own description and analysis of the incident Britta Lundin's list of characters for 'Ship It', back when she was writing the first draft in 2015 In the next episode, we'll be discussing 'Seventeenth Summer' by Maureen Daly, which is sometimes referred to as the first young adult novel.
