HTP Episode 121 – Allison Church

Author of numerous books, Allison Church comes to Hungry Trilobyte as part of the #Fans4Healing project.  In this episode, she and I will talk about how getting into Star Trek fandom helped her understand how to understand her value as a person, as well as how to adapt to her life as a transgender woman.  When discussing Star Trek, she mentions how much she loves both Discovery and TOS, and I offer a fan project called Star Trek: Aurora that might offer her a different perspective on the series.

On the topic of her books, we have a great chat about Dark Passenger, a horror story set during the voyage of the Titanic.  What I love about this novel is that it’s genre fiction, but has enough basis in fact to be plausible.  Allison looks into the artifact rumors that have been documented, and I mention my love of the paranormal lore (including a One Step Beyond episode) that surrounds this ship.

You can follow Allison’s journey on her official website, her Amazon Author page, and elsewhere.

HTP Episode 111 – Jason Pollock

Jason Pollock, host of the It’s Me Jason podcast, gets together with me to swap stories of how fandom has built its own cultures. He has some great insights into stand-up, and even rolled one of his bits into a coloring book titled “The Fly That Refused to Die“. When we hit talk of MST3K, I recount to him the story of how Jackey Raye Neyman Jones rediscovered Manos (as she tells in her book) and I challenge Jason to watch Manos Returns, directed by Tonjia Atomic.

HTP Episode 075 – Joseph Mallozzi

Joe_Puddle

Joseph Mallozzi is a highly accomplished writer, with series such as Utopia Falls and Dark Matter to his credit.  However, the work I couldn’t resist talking about was his work on the Stargate series, joining SG1 in Season 4 and helping launch Atlantis and Universe.  Joe and I talk about world-building, US Military support of the show, the importance of humor in science fiction, and the Richard Dean Anderson factor.  Because Jack O’Neill is awesome. 

We also get to take some awesome tangents into talking about getting kids into reading (the Harry Potter Effect) and getting them to keep reading after they grow up (the Post-Harry-Potter effect).  Also, how has the shortened TV season trend changed showrunning?

You can follow Joeseph on his official website/blog,  JosephMallozzi.com, as well as his Twitter feed.
