This week we talk about some goals we have moved forward recently. This included the unexpected need to migrate from one hosting provider to another. We then discuss what to do when something just isn’t working, the joy of throwing things out, and finish the episode by talking to production potter Frank Gosar.
This week our Wombat Co-host is back, and we’ll talk about some of the challenges when scheduling her two really big projects that are due at about the same time. We then have an interview with Damien Ryan, and wrap up the show with a discussion of the quality of ditches to die in.
Note: Due to scheduling issues, this interview references an interview that has not aired yet. We’ll get it running.
This week, I am flying solo while the Womat co-host heads out to a speaking engagement. We’ll talk a little about what has kept me from being as productive as I’d like this week, some exciting news, and we’ll wrap up by talking to Emily Guyton-Lange.
This week, talk about Kevin’s new routine, Ursula’s successes, and why the Teen Test Subject gets the week off. We will wrap up by reading letters and comments from you, the listeners!
In our typical manner, what started as a discussion about what we did this week worked it’s way around to the impact of foot health on our productivity, followed by a discussion of how Ursula isn’t REALLY celebrating the completion of her newest book. After all that, I talk to Claire A. Miller, who is a librarian and crafter, and has some really cool things to share.
This week, we will discuss how one handles being suddenly unemployed, and what I’m doing to cope with it. We will also check in with the Teen Test Subject, and wrap up by talking to author Malka Older.

This week, we will be talking about the distractions we’ve had this last week, and how we’ve dealt with them. We also have some gifts from listeners we’ll talk about, and finally we’ll do a check-in interview with Dylan Wilbanks, who was on last year, to see how his methods have changed.
After a refreshing break, we return this week with our status on catching up post-con. We’ll also talk about how Kevin is using his Bullet Journal and the challenges around having one person use a digital calendar and the other using paper. We’ll check in with the Teen Test Subject, and then talk to Jim C. Hines on how he stays productive!
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!
