Service notice – The Coode St Podcast

Podbean, the hosting service for The Coode Street Podcast, is experiencing technical difficulties. Podbean have advised that they are undergoing maintenance, but have provided no further information. To date, this “maintenance period” has extended for 24 hrs.

We would like to sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this has caused Coode Street listeners. If the hosting problems continue we will look for a new service. We do have a new episode of the podcast, Episode 92 recorded with special guest Michael Dirda, recorded and ready to go. We look forward to sharing it with you as soon as we can.

Episode 91: Live with Gary K. Wolfe!

Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Dirda recently reviewed Keith Roberts’ magestic novel, Pavane, in The Washington Post, describing it as a fix-up novel, a term coined by the late A.E. van Vogt. The review sparked a conversation about fix-ups, what they are and where the term comes from, and how terminology forms in the SF field. It’s digressive, unresearched, and un-factchecked, but at least it’s not talking about awards. As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast.
