Robin Wasserman, author of the young adult science fiction novel Skinned, joins us to discuss hacking Harvard, working in publishing, human identity, and writing about the future. Dave and John try to figure out how to upload their minds. 

 

[When Dave uploaded his brain to the internet last week, leaving his frail and sickly mortal remains behind, he selflessly exported these SHOW NOTES. Just for you guys.]

GGG#015: The Black Death! Archimedes! Counterfactuals! (Guest: Dan Carlin)

Dan Carlin, host of the Hardcore History podcast, joins us to discuss the history of the future, the origins of the centaur legend, and what the Black Death can teach us about postapocalyptic fiction. Dave and John get medieval on your assumptions about historical fantasy.

 

[No written record of the history of Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy has ever been discovered. All that remains are these SHOW NOTES.]

Holly Black, author of The Spiderwick Chronicles, joins us to talk about the Spiderwick movie, graphic novels, and D&D. Dave and John blame evil internet fairies for any number of things, possibly including the loss of their childhood action figure collections.

 

[To keep the evil internet fairies at bay, read these SHOW NOTES aloud in the presence of the full moon.]
