For all you podcast listeners out there, if you love science fiction and/or fantasy, you will definitely want to add the 2012 Hugo Award winning podcast SF Signal to your list.
Patrick Hester is the host of this fabulous show. These shows can take on various forms. He's had interviews with many of the big names in the SF/F publishing industry, like Chuck Wendig, Mary Robinette Kowal, Paul and Storm, Jay Lake, Jim Butcher, Laura Resnick, Patrick Rothfuss, and many more.
The other form of show are panels, where he'll line up industry experts to give their take on subjects such as Cyberpunk, Steampunk, the best debut novel you've ever read, and more. These discussions always bring out so much knowledge of the SF/F industry that I find myself jotting down every story title they toss out.
Patrick is also a novelist in his own right, the host of another geek-related show (which I will cover in depth in a future blog post), and also produces Mur Lafferty's podcast "I should be writing." Talk about one busy guy!
