Discovered David Barr Kirtley’s podcast several years ago, and have been listening in ever since. David has interesting and purposeful conversations with the leading lights of science fictions and fantasy. I consistently learn a lot from the show, whether it’s a round table discussion of schlocky 80s dungeons and dragons movies or a conversation with a grand master of science fiction. I particularly enjoy the balance between screen, print, and gaming content, and welcome the exposure to great new material that has enriched my life.
