The Once & Future Podcast
How is 2016 going for everyone so far?
I worked a quiet day at the bookstore and then went to see Star Wars again. It was still made of awesome. This time I managed to see R2-KT in her cameo. If you don’t know the story of this adorable droid, I recommend you go look at her homepage (warning, there are some stills from The Force Awakens at the site!) The short version is that R2-KT is a pink R2 unit that was created for a little girl with a terminal brain tumor. Her dad was the founder of the 501st Legion, so she had a strong love of Star Wars. She’s gone now, but R2-KT continues in both our world and the world of Star Wars. I was so excited to see her! I missed her on my first viewing.
Now that you’ve teared up, let me change the subject entirely and talk about a podcast I just started listening to. The Once and Future Podcast is hosted by Anton Strout, the author of several urban fantasy novels. Every episode, he gets another author on to just chat for around an hour.
I found this show after looking for more podcasts with Cherie Priest, who gives a fantastic interview. I thought the show was fun, so I decided to subscribe. I’ve listened to five or six episodes so far while I was puttering around the house and I’m really enjoying them.
The episodes vary a bit depending on the direction the guest takes it, but mostly it focuses on writing and how one goes about being a working author.
There is an episode guide here, so if you want to sample the podcast you can look up a favorite author and start from there.
