Tor.com’s New Podcast Will Guide Geeks Through The Galaxy

Hot on the the heels of Tor.com’s excellent Audio Fiction with Mur Lafferty podcast, comes a brand new podcast: The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy.

From a Tor.com press release:

Tor.com is proud to announce the launch of THE GEEK’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY a non-fiction talk show podcast focusing on all things geeky.

Geeks have always loved what’s smart and fun – from fantasy literature, video games, and graphic novels, to science, technology, and gadgets. It’s never been a better time to be a geek, with Lord of the Rings sweeping the Oscars, iPods and iPhones in every pocket, and tales of wizards, vampires, and zombies dominating the bestseller lists. And now being a geek is about to get even better, with the launch of THE GEEK’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY podcast, the indispensable news and talk show for geeks everywhere.

Hosts John Joseph Adams and David Barr Kirtley are two geeks who also happen to be rising young stars in the world of publishing. John, the editor of the bestselling anthologies WASTELANDS and THE LIVING DEAD and the new science fiction magazine LIGHTSPEED, has been called “the reigning king of the anthology world” and was nominated for the World Fantasy Award. David, who has been named “one of the newest and freshest voices in sf,” has published fiction in books such as FANTASY: THE BEST OF THE YEAR and NEW VOICES IN SCIENCE FICTION.

So if you’re a geek, be sure to join Dave and John each week for the smartest, funniest, and geekiest new show in the galaxy.

Each show will feature an interview with a geek celebrity from the world of publishing, movies, tv, video games…or any other geek worth talking to! In addition to the featured interview, hosts Dave and John will discuss the various geeky topics brought up in the interview in further detail.

The first guest on Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy was Chet Faliszek, the lead writer/game designer on the hit video games Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. Episode 2 features an interview with award-winning science fiction writer Paolo Bacigalupi, whose debut novel The Windup Girl was named to Time Magazine’s top 10 novels of the year. Episode 3 features an interview with P.W. Singer, author of Wired for War, a non-fiction book about the use of robots in warfare.
