I first began posting The Genre Traveler Podcast in September 2010. I started out bi-monthly, but moved to weekly after only one month. Thank you to all my wonderful guests for agreeing to chat with me for 30 minutes about all things science fiction, fantasy and horror. And thank you to all my listeners for giving me a reason to keep on keeping on!
The Genre Traveler Podcast features chats with all sorts of individuals connected to the science fiction, fantasy and horror communities, from authors to actors, from directors to artists, from fans to musicians … and everyone in between.
These chats focus on all aspects of “seeing the world through genre colored glasses,” from travel to sense of place to perspective. And sometimes episodes are just two people chatting about what interests them in SF/F/H.
What makes The Genre Traveler Podcast different from other podcasts is that it is not your typical interview format. It is more casual and truly is a conversation between two people who have an interest in and passion for science fiction, fantasy and/or horror. As you listen to an episode, you can almost imagine that you are at someone’s home, listening in on an interesting dialogue. This format allows guests to do more than just promote their work, they get to explore the ideas behind their work, the trends their work is helping form and more. You’ll hear more than the typical canned questions and answers you’ll find in other audio interviews.
In addition, I add additional information that elaborates on topics covered in the podcast on the episode’s page. If I or my guest make a reference to something, such as an author, concept or work, I add notes about it below. That way everyone listening to the podcast can be on the same page and enjoy what for some could be an obscure reference. Several of my guests have commented on how much they like these notes. I hope you find them useful, too.
