124 - The "Canon" Episode w/ Jeannette Ng & Dr. Lisa Yaszek
Some say there are certain works & authors in SF/F/H that one Must Read in order to appreciate or understand the genres. But with all the amazing new work coming out from new voices around the world, are the so-called "canonical" works even relevant anymore? How can fans navigate the world of speculative fiction in a way that makes it meaningful (and let's not forget FUN) for them? We get into it with two fantastic guests: 2019 Astounding Award winner & author of Under the Pendulum Sun, Jeannette Ng, and Georgia Tech Regents Professor of Science Fiction Studies & author of The Future is Female, Dr. Lisa Yaszek.

123 - #OwnVoices Fiction w/ Sheree Renée Thomas & K. Tempest Bradford
"Own Voices" fiction means stories written BY members of the marginalized groups and cultures they depict, instead of written by people from outside those groups. People deserve to tell their OWN stories instead of having others take up that space and write about them, so today we get into what needs to happen and why. We're joined by two amazing author/editors: Sheree Renée Thomas (World Fantasy Award-winning editor, author, Marvel writer, and new Editor of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction) and K.
