The Coode Street Podcast is a truly international effort, with Gary in Chicago and Jonathan in Perth, and listeners the world over. Â 2014 was great year for the podcast. Our audience was up more than 30%, which is gratifying, and we managed to get 40 (of a possible 52!) episodes out. Â We recorded our 200th episode live in London with Stan Robinson, Bob Silverberg and Jo Walton, and then backed it up with only our second ever live podcast from World Fantasy with Caitlin Kiernan and Peter Straub.
The third of our short series of podcasts recorded at the World Fantasy Convention in Washington DC, this one features a particularly laughter-filled conversation with award-winning writers and editors, and long-time friends and collaborators, Jack Dann and Gardner Dozois. While it’s been long enough since the podcast was recorded that we’re not sure any of it made sense, we do know it was a lot of fun to record. We hope it’s a lot of fun to listen to.
It has been a huge year here on the the Street. So many amazing and so many sad things that I’m not going to summarise them all right now.
For the moment, just a quick wish from the Antipodes that you and your loved ones have a happy, safe and healthy holiday season, and that the year ahead is the best ever!
Time to go listen to the greatest Christmas song of all time. See you on the other side!
This week the first of our series of World Fantasy Convention 2014 podcasts. Award-winning writers Helen Marshall and Robert Shearman sit down with Gary and Jonathan to discuss writing, their careers, their new books and much more.
As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast!
For the final episode before our Christmas hiatus, Jonathan and Gary are joined by award-winning writer and critic James Bradley to discuss the best books of 2014. Any lists are going to be incomplete, but we make an attempt to talk about a lot of what we thought was worthwhile from the year just coming to a close.
