Tough love for literature

Episode 176: Emily St. John Mandel, Station Eleven (w/ Dave Housley)


We welcome special guest Dave Housley, founding editor of Barrelhouse Magazine, and author of several books, most recently the short story collection Massive Cleansing Fire. Dave chose this week’s book, the best-selling post-apocalyptic Station Eleven.

In the second half of the show, Dave reads a bit of fanfiction, and the less said about that the better.

As always, you can stream the episode right here on our site, or you can download the mp3 file. Or check us out in the iTunes store, where you can subscribe (for free!) and never miss another installment.

We’ve also joined Patreon, if you’d like to support the show. We’ll be recording bonus episodes that will only be available to listeners who kick in $5 a month–a pretty great bargain, considering that all our regular episodes (4 a month!) are free.

  1. why are you apologizing for last episode when you’ll have to explain this one to saint peter at the gates of judgement?

  2. Patreon poke: you’re currently set to $5 per creation, not per month. That’s a mistake, yeah?

  3. Good catch! Didn’t even see that there was an option to choose something other than monthly. But I think it’s fixed now.
