The time has come, the wombat said, to introduce a new test subject. The Wombat Test Subject won’t be going anywhere (I suppose she is now the Wombat Co-Host?), but we will be starting to work with the Teenage Test Subject, my son Jacob, who is starting his Junior year of High School. After that, we have an interview with the Space Unicorns themselves, Lynne M. & Michael Damian Thomas, publisher and editor of Uncanny Magazine!
We spend a lot of time this week talking about talking – or rather, talking about speaking in public – since WorldCon is just around the corner and the Wombat Test Subject (author Ursula Vernon) has to prep not one, but two speeches she probably won’t have to give. We follow that up with Kevin’s initial foray into Bullet Journalling, and wrap it all up with your letters and comments!
This week we will discuss the pros and cons of “disconnecting” as we are about to head off to a short get-away that will have spotty to no internet access. We also talk about balancing out productive and non-productive days. Finally, we have an interview with friend of the show and long-time listener Cori Large, to find out how she stays organized.
This week we talk a little more about why and when we play video games, and how it is important for us (and many others) as part of our self-care routines. We’ll also catch up on the Wombat Test Subject’s productivity, and top it off by talking to my cousin Susan Anderson about how she stays productive.
We are home from AnthroCon, and we’ll talk about the stresses and organizational hurdles we encountered while we were there. And then, since it is the second show of the month, we have answers to your letters!
We are at AnthroCon this weekend, and we are looking forward to meeting everyone of our listeners who is able to come. In the mean time, we have a really good interview with Dr. Jennifer Askey, an Academic and Career Coach.
One week to go until AnthroCon, and we are both in Convention Prep Mode. While I work out better ways to keep the Security team organized and display useful information, the Wombat Test Subject is working on her table display, art, and a whole bunch of other stuff. We will also talk to Diana Harlan Stein, three-time Hugo nominee and fantasy artist.
Hi everyone! We’re here this week with a discussion of better living through chemistry, the Wombat Test Subject Ursula Vernon’s new Sitting Ball chair, convention prep, and how presentation matters when selling things. We also have an interview with Cartoonist and Author K. B. Spangler!
The first episode of Year Two falls on the second week of the month, so it is time to read your letters and answer listener questions. We will also check in with our Wombat Test Subject, and discover that the new setup needs a pop filter, while the old setup didn’t.
So here it is, Episode 50. This week, we will discuss some of the challenges of no longer being tied to an office schedule, our Wombat Test Subject (Ursula Vernon) discusses the realization that she likely has ADD, and we’ll put Kevin in the hot-seat to answer the seven questions (which he has never done).
