Well, sort of. It’s not quite another episode. It’s an interview. Normally we have multiple segments in our episodes, but this has only one. Also, we don’t have the whole group. Here’s what happened: Chris arranged the interview and I joined in because I wanted to be part of it. By the time we were done, it was three hours long.

When you think about our normal episodes, that’s enough for two.

Fortunately, there was stuff that Chris could cut and so it’s now about half that.

Having successfully buried the lead, I should tell you that we interviewed Eric Burns-White. Eric’s done a number of things that you might know him for. He was one of the first webcomic critics. He was also one of the writers of Superguy, one of the first attempts at online superhero fiction. Also, he published original fiction on his website starting around 2007.

Among the fiction published there was a piece called Interviewing Leather, one of the stories responsible for giving me the idea of releasing my own fiction online.

This time we’re talking shop about what it’s like to be writers at various levels of success, how book sales are doing and what we’re doing to promote ourselves. We also talk about Wonder Woman because at that point it was new and current. In addition, we spoil a major Wonder Woman plot point that you should already be aware of because the movie came out months ago. Finally, we talk about the trope of characters keeping secrets and sometimes having the sense to tell secrets.

Because that does happen too.

By the way folks, stay tuned for an upcoming interview with Eric Burns which we planned to include in this podcast, but it was so long it needed its own episode.

As you might guess, this was recorded near the end of 2015, so it’s almost topical.

Disclaimer: You remember how we had beeps during an earlier episode? Well, you can look forward to hearing them again. Sorry. We’re blaming Microsoft because both times it happened Chris recorded it on Windows whereas it’s never happened when he used Linux. So suck it, Microsoft.

Discussion: Light and Dark themes in superhero prose, comics, TV and movies. What do we like to read? What do we like to write? Works discussed: The Dark Knight Returns, The Flash, Superman, Watchmen.

Nerdfight: We discuss which of the current live action TV shows we like best, tell each other how awful each other’s choices are, and randomly pound on shows that aren’t even being broadcast anymore. Works Discussed: Agents of Shield, Daredevil, The Flash, Arrow, Smallville.

Stuffed in the Fridge: We discuss the superhero trope of “fridging” characters.

Note: The odd music you hear in the background is Chris’ computer receiving email. We’re going to avoid that in the future. We hope.
