Humor in Science Fiction and Fantasy (with Jim C. Hines and Brian Briggs)

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

This is audio from another panel discussion at Penguicon 2010 I was a part of, called “Humor in Science Fiction and Fantasy.”

Joining me on the panel are Jim C. Hines, author of the Goblin Quest and Princess series and Brian Briggs, creator of the geek humor site

I loved being on this panel. It was a hoot. We talked about writing humor in genres vs. traditional fiction, and even in non-fiction. Jim teases me for taking food home from the laundromat. And we learn that Batman makes anything funnier.

Jim was also a guest on an episode for the other podcast I’m a part of, LansingNext. I am the co-host, and bring my lovable geek humor to the show.

Oh and last week’s podcast made it to the front page of BoingBong last week. Awesome!

Schedule change-episodes on wednesdays

Sunday, November 8th, 2009

I decided last night that I’m going to release the next podcast episode on Wednesday (11.11.09).  A friend who specializes in Internet marketing, etc. told me that the best days for Web traffic are Tuesday through Thursday.  Makes sense.

I’m curious to see if releasing an episode in the middle of the week will make much of a difference in my own traffic.  Considering I only release stuff every other week, this is probably a good idea–as not too many people check websites on Sundays.

This also gives me the whole weekend to finish an episode if I don’t have it done in time.  Come back on Wednesday!
