Really exciting day for me as one of the projects I’ve been planning for the last few months has finally come to fruition. My friend Marcus and I have begun a podcast, which will cover a wide range of topics, like the ENTIRETY OF LITERATURE up to this point in time, or, in this episode, FANTASY BOOKS! It’s called THE SPOILER SHOW, and you can listen to it here.

For our inaugural outing, Marcus and I decided to talk about some of the fantasy books we’ve been enjoying as of late, including Time 100 list originator Lev Grossman’s Magicians series, as well as the Bas-Lag books of China Miéville. Keep in mind the name of the podcast, though, as we do not hesitate to bring up climactic events that spoilerbabies might get upset about. If that sounds like something that will bother you, I suggest maybe sitting down and thinking about people in the world who have real problems to deal with. Also, I guess there’s “mature” language throughout, so don’t play this in the car on the way to daycare or whatever.

One recurring segment we’ve put together is called SELL ME ON IT, where both Marcus and I attempt to sell the other (and the audience) on something we really enjoy. The intent here is for the passion we have for that thing, be it a book, movie, activity, whatever, comes through and inspires you to go out and experience something new.

We hope to put out a new episode every Friday, so stay tuned to keep up to date on things I find entertaining. Thanks so much for listening!
