Warp Drives #6: The Djinn Digression

In this week’s episode, TJ and Dave talk about seeing Radiotopia Live–we both loved Phoebe Judge’s performance in the Criminal podcast. Then, we review this week’s episode of American Gods (Head Full of Snow). We both liked the Anubis and djinn digressions, but the Shadow Moon story still felt a little slow.

We both read up to issue #6 of World of Wakanda, spinoff of the Black Panther series. The Dora Milaje kick ass, but we’re not sure why Black Panther needs bodyguards in the first place.

Dave shares his new audiobook narration gig, Some Demon by Mel Murphy, which is available on Audible. And TJ talks about how she learned how to edit using Scrivener.

Finally, the SciFi Dustup of the Day was the pronouncement of the Arthur C. Clarke Award shadow jury that the award is sliding too far into commercial writing. We wonder if commercial success or sophistication needs to be factored into awarding quality literature at all.
