Dr. Erin Macdonald is an astrophysicist, and aerospace engineer, and the host of the YouTube series Dr. Erin Explains the Universe. This was a great discussion about how to balance science fact with the needs of fiction, as well as how writing for science has changed as we’ve advanced our scientific knowledge.

HTP Episode 012 – Lee Sargent (Lee Draws Stuff)

3ee1

Lee Sargent is a popular artist, known for his childlike interpretations of scenes from Star Trek, Dr. Who, and Stargate. Lee feels passionately about letting people enjoy stories on their own terms, that stories are about escapism and creativity. What I love about this chat is that we get to discuss the balance between an artist’s original intention and the audience’s vision. We also get to talk about Australia’s wildlife and doing cons outside the US, with such awesome events as Oz Comic Con and Supanova in his backyard.
