What am I missing

I'm not sure what it is that attracts authors, or other interviewees to this podcast. Not sure if it's the association with the website, or some dark dealings with the devil, but man this guy is bad. The 'host' constantly is attempting to schlock his own mediocre work and his struggles to get published to established authors (spoiler, it gets him nowhere). There are more awkward pauses and corny corny jokes that even the most socially awkward fanboys would cringe at. The worst part though is that the guys scores some great interviews. The bad side of that though, is that the guy doesn't even attempt to become familiar with the work that the author in question is representing. Half the podcast is the 'host' attempting to familiarize himself with what the hell is going on, rarely leading to any type of enlightenment. Tldr; not a good show. awkward host. doesn't even have the most basic grasp of the genre or subculture

Superb Sci-Fi Discussions & Book Coverage

SF Signal is one of the premier websites for Sci-Fi and Fantasy coverage. With book reviews, author interviews and roundtable discussions about the various elements that make up genre fiction and entertainment SF Signal is always entertaining. Hosted by Patrick Hester, of The Functional Nerds, SF Signal is well worth the listen for any Sci-Fi reader or writer. Actually that's true for any form of genre fiction.
