As I said last week, new podcasts come out all of the time, which is great for me, a podcast addict. But which ones are worth listening to? I’ve pulled together a short list of some of the great ones that started this year.
So, Bindercon is pretty cool. It’s a “a professional development conference designed to empower women and gender non-conforming writers with the tools, connections, and strategies they need to advance their careers. More than a conference, we are a community of writers working to increase the diversity of voices in the media and literary arts through conferences, workshops, and other career-building events.”
They’ve recently started their own podcast and it’s just swell. Lux Alptraum and Leigh Stein co-host to discuss how to make it as a writer. The first episode interviews Roxane Gay, who also serves on BinderCon’s Advisory Board.
They’re only one episode three, so you can catch up in no time!
I love Poets & Writers; they are an amazing resource for, well, poets and writers. They catalog a ton of contests, literary magazines, journals, writing job resources, and more. They also interview a lot of interesting up-and-coming authors. They’re one of the three print magazines I shell my hard-earned green out for (the others being Bitch Magazine and Lilith Magazine, obviously).
They started their own podcast, Ampersand (ADORABLE name), in April of this year. There are long gaps between each episode though; they’re releasing the episodes with the quarterly publication, so episode four just came out.
Topics covered range from finding a literary agent to translations to finding an MFA program.
This podcast is on hiatus, but I love everything about it as I’ve said before. LC Brown started this show in February of this year with an episode about The Legend of Korra, which I was finally getting around to watching.
Each episode focuses on strong women in narratives. Sometimes this means shows or movies (like Alien), but it also includes webcomics (Trans Girl Next Door) and video games (Metroid). All of her guests so far have been fun and well-informed.
It’s just the most enjoyable amount of nerdy.2 comments
