Here’s the audio version of the week’s broadcast. Feel free to download and take it with you!
On this week’s webcast it was all about alternate history. We talked a little bit about what defines it, how there can sometimes be a fine line between it and other genres, and some of the works in the genre. There was talk of Tarantino, Stephen King, and Robert Sobel, oh my! Hope you enjoy!
We had a tiny hiccup of tech. difficulties in the middle of the broadcast, we apologize for that. *curses google hangouts* Just hang on there, because everything resumes as normal after a few seconds.
