Coode St Backup 211

This is a backup issue of Episode 211 of the Coode St Podcast featuring Kij Johnson.  We are making some changes to how the Coode St Podcast is published.  From 3 January 2015 episodes will no longer be cross-posted to my personal blog and the Notes from Coode St RSS feed will become inactive on iTunes.

We recommend moving your subscription to http://jonathanstrahan.podbean.com/ so that you continue to receive Coode St each week. Thanks!

Episode 211b: Kij Johnson and Reimagining Genre’s Past


The Coode Street Podcast is fortunate to have a small group of guests who have appeared on the show more than once. This week we welcome back our most regular visitor, the wonderful Kij Johnson, who brings us up to date on the weather in Kansas, what she’s been writing, and on re-imagining our genre’s past. 

It was enormous fun talking to Kij and we’d like to thank her for making time on a chilly Saturday evening to talk to us on Coode Street. We apologise for some minor technical issues. As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast, and will be back next week with more!
Note: This is a reissue of the original episode, which had some issues.

Episode 210: Genevieve Valentine and all the things


This week Gary and Jonathan are joined by the wonderful Genevieve Valentine who talks intelligently, coherently and very interestingly about television, film, her latest novel The Girls at the Kingfisher Club, writing for comics and her extended run with Catwoman, and a lot, lot more.

Genevieve’s brilliance is a little overshadowed by bumbling hosts, who were exceptionally bumbling this weekend, and by perfidious technology (for which our apologies to both you and to Genevieve). Nonetheless, we think there’s a lot worth listening to and hope you will persevere.
Our sincere thanks to Genevieve for making the time to record the podcast, and to all of you for listening. As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast.

Episode 209: The Beginning of the End of 2014

We went to Washington DC to celebrate the 40th World Fantasy Convention and came back to the first books and stories of 2014. As long-time listeners know, this is the time when the season turns, when work beings on summing up the year we’ve had, and when the old year ends and the new one begins. This episode, with brief and incoherent gift guide, is the beginning of the end of 2014.

As always, we hope you forgive the rambling and enjoy the episode. See you next week!
