Episode 143: Inciting Meg Elison's Riot

Inciting A Riot

Episode 143 is an interview with author Meg Elison. Meg is celebrating two new books - Find Layla and Big Girl. We have a discussion about creativity during quarantine, whether the apocalypse looks like she imagined it as an author of speculative post-apocalyptic fiction, and the body positive / fat acceptance movements. A good chunk of time was spent discussing writing authentically and inclusively, and how to walk the line as a creator of realistic portrayals of diversity without falling into the pitfalls of stereotypes or problematic tropes.  Find more of Meg Elison here.

Meg Elison | Familiar Face

Nightmare Magazine - Horror and Dark Fantasy Story Podcast (Audiobook | Short Stories)

Your camera thinks it spotted a familiar face. “Cameras don’t think,” Annie said, looking down at her phone. “Who taught this thing to identify specific faces? Who thought that was a good idea?” “Ok, neuromantic,” Jonah scoffed at her, looking over. “Not everything is a part of the panopticon. Calm your tits.” “It’s just weird that it thinks,” Annie continued, loading more Diet Cokes into the communal fridge. “And why does that make me a new romantic?” | Copyright 2020 by Meg Elison.
