Future of Science Fiction Podcast
Listened to most of this recent podcast about science fiction on To the Best of Our Knowledge. It features interviews with George R. R. Martin and Ursula K. Le Guin about the nature of science fiction as well as an interview with the author of the definitive H.P. Lovecraft anthology.
I would not have necessarily chosen Martin and Le Guin for this topic, but they make interesting choices given that each one has published successful and award-winning fantasy and science fiction. Their perspectives are worth hearing. The interview with the Lovecraft scholar is also interesting.
Haven't actually heard the rest of the podcast yet, but looking forward to a chance to do so (my daughter is home sick from school today).
