Larry Correia and Brad R. Torgersen join us to discuss the Sad Puppies effort. The campaign questions the notion of inclusion in genre, particularly with the Hugo Awards. In the interview, we discuss the perceived exclusion of popular fiction. We also chat about the controversial decision to include Vox Day in the original slate. Full disclosure: AISFP was included in the 2015 slate. In the coming weeks, we’ll talk with others in the genre community about the topic: We expect we’ll receive a variety of opinions and perspectives.
This is the inaugural episode for Brent and Kristi as co-hosts (we anticipate Moses will stop by from time to time, too). The podcast will continue to feature great author interviews and work hard to showcase relevant industry topics from multiple points of view. It also will evolve to reflect the changing landscape of genre storytelling.
