It's been a while since our two intrepid podcasters journeyed together to the Gershwin Room high above the Coode Street Motel Six to ramble over an early morning cup of coffee and late evening glass of wine, but with little else to discuss that is just what they did.

In a rambling discussing they touched on how science fiction is perceived today, whether the views of an author should impact on how you read their written work, awards (of course), and what they mean by 'of this parish'.
As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast. We're still setting the schedule for the next few weeks, but expect to hear from Joe Abercrombie, Anne Leckie, Jeff VanderMeer, and others.

Loncon 3, the 72nd World Science Fiction Convention, has announced the nominees for the 2014 Hugo and Campbell Awards. As is our practice, this week we have a special episode of the podcast devoted to discussing the awards and all of the wonderful nominees. We are very grateful to John De Nardo (of SF Signal) and Tansy Rayner Roberts (Galactic Suburbia and Verity) for joining us for what we think is an interesting conversation. 

We would also like to thank all of our listeners for nominating Coode Street for our third consecutive Best Fancast Hugo Award. We could not be happier, or more grateful.

As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast and we’ll be back next week with more!

With awards season picking up, we try to avoid talking about them and pretty much fail. There is other stuff: on reading Heinlein today and the new bio that's coming out, who would make the Big 5 in SF now etc.

It's a bit rambly, it's a bit Coode St. As always we hope you enjoy it!
