Episode 20 - The Wild World of Fan Fiction (Guest: Anne Jamison)
Who? What? When? Where? Why? Unprintable is still a thing?
That's right, ladies and gentlemen, we're still here. It's been about three months since our last full cast, and we are just bursting at the seams with literary fact-nuggets and hastily formed opinions. We can only apologize for the radio silence, but what with the holidays, vacations, jail time, and mental breakdowns, personal life got a bit hectic there for a while. But never fear, we are back from sabbatical, convalesced and ready to pontificate with impunity once again.
News: People are moving up in the world. Kristen Stewart is now a poet and Rob is going to be a published author. Like, for realz.
Reads: Cath and Josh discuss the pros and cons of Doug Dorst's S., in both eBook and print format. Rob discusses how he has taken to reading sexy books on the train to see if anyone notices.
Topic: Fan Fiction. You think it's crazy and bizarre and is all about sordid sex—and it is. But it's also so much more. Anne Jamison, author of fic, is one of the foremost authorities on the subject and takes us on a guided tour of this fascinating world. Feuds, infighting, scandals, and social hierarchy based around the canine penis—you are not going to want to miss this.
