Episode 129: In which the year ends….

This week we headed up to the Gershwin Room to discuss the recently announced Locus All Time Poll results, writing for the end of the year and other similarly pre-New Year's Eve kinds of things. As always,  we hope you enjoy the podcast!

Episode 128: Live with Gene Wolfe

This week we're joined in the Gershwin Room by newly annointed SFWA Grand Master Gene Wolfe to discuss writing, his work, his new novel, and much more.  We had hoped to feature listener questions, and would like to sincerely thank everyone who sent questions in, but they ended up not quite fitting the format. We are sincerely grateful, however, to everyone who wanted to be involved.  As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast!

Episode 127: Live with Maureen McHugh

This week we return to the Gershwin Room to chat with Maureen McHugh, award-winning author of novels China Mountain Zang, Half the Day is Night, Mission Child, and Nekropolis, and the short story collections Mothers and Other Monsters and After the Apocalypse. We discuss her time in Los Angeles and how it is affecting her writing, the nature of story, and many other things.  As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast!

Episode 126: In which rambling continues…

After a long delay due to technical issues with our hosting service, Podbean, we are now able to bring you the latest episode of The Coode Street Podcast. Episode 126 was recorded on Sunday, 9 December by Jonathan Strahan and Gary K. Wolfe, who rambled about various subjects to do with science fiction and fantasy. The recording was done so long ago, though, that neither podcaster quite remembers what they discussed or is willing to listen to the podcast to find out what.  If you do listen to the podcast, please consider describing this episode in the comments. "General rambling", commenters are reminded, is a category and not a description.  Although we don't remember the podcast, we still hope you enjoy it. We'll be back next weekend, technology permitting, with a new episode!

Episode 125: Of lists and rambling

In one of our most problem-free podcasts of recent times, Gary Wolfe and Jonathan Strahan return to the Waldorf Room high atop the corporate tower that is the Coode Street Motel Six to discuss lists, the Locus All-Time Poll that has just closed, and essays/articles by Paul McAuley on "Lets Put the Future Behind Us" and Jonathan McAlmont on "Annoyed with the History of Science Fiction", with passing reference to Gary Westfahl and Paul Kincaid (but only passing). Along the way lists were made, recommendations avoided, and a laugh or two was had. It's one of our longest podcasts of recent times, for which apologies, but as always we hope you enjoy it. See you next week!
