Episode 27 is the second half of my interview with Odin1Eye. Odin is the blogger and podcaster of "View From Valhalla" - the place to go for the best reviews of podcast novels.   If you want to know what Odin listens to besides the podiobooks he's already reviewed, you'll want to catch this episode.

And what does Podiobooks.com need more of?  Listen to find out! (Even Evo Terra agrees in a recent interview on PodioRacket #50).  So when you write one of those and put it up on Podiobooks, let Odin and I know ... We WILL listen.

If you missed part 1 of the interview, you can find it here.

Episode 26 is the first part of my interview with Odin1Eye. Odin is the blogger and podcaster of "View From Valhalla" - the place to go for the best reviews of podcast novels. I enjoy FREE podcast audio novels, but if you are new to the podcast community there is no better place to start your search for ones you will enjoy. Odin's reviews are balanced and focused on letting you know why you would want to listen or pass on the podcast novels he reviews. Even for people like me who listened to the very first ones, visiting the site every Monday to find new podiobooks or being able to share your opinions about ones you've already listened to is a real service. He's even started podcasting his reviews, both recent and older ones, so please subscribe on his site.

On top of all that Odin is a REALLY nice person, great human being, and fellow "Watcher". I consider him one of my best Internet buddies. So what are you waiting for? Go listen already ... and check out his blog.

In episode 25; my brother, Ted, and I discuss digital comics. We are both long time comic book fans and we take a bit of time to talk about our thoughts on digital comics and how we think it may impact the comic book industry.

This isn't an interview, like most of my previous episodes. Also the audio quality isn't as good as I'd like. But I'm interested in finding out if you'd like more of these kinds of discussions on the show in general, and if you'd like Ted back in specific. So please comment on the episode and make your preferences known.

The Watchers - Episode 1, "Owner's Share"

When the Internet powers of Jack Hosley (Wander Radio), Odin1Eye (View From Valhalla), and Richard Green (Geek Out!) unite .... well they just sit around on Skype and talk about stuff. But the stuff they talk about is AWESOME. And what could be more fitting for the first episode thana discussion of the awesome and controversial "Owner's Share" by Nathan Lowell? Oh and the discussion does contain spoilers!

Be prepared dear listeners .... where they are going, they don't need any roads. :)

GOWM 23 - Interview with Paulette Jaxton - Part 1

Episode 23 is the first half of my interview with Paulette Jaxton. This was one of my very favorite podcast novels of 2010 ... or any year. When I was surprised at the news that "The Empress Sword" was available, I immediately did 2 things. 1) Put my order in for my paperback & ebook versions & 2) Contacted Paulette about being on the show. Find out why the book and the author are so awesome in this interview. :)

(Yes, since the interview an epub version has been released and it is on my e-reader right now!)

GOWM 21 - Interview with Tee & Pip - Part 1

Our guests for Episode 21 are Philippa Ballantine (gracious as always, returning to the show) and Tee Morris (coming back to fiction in force in a major way). Those of you who have heard other interviews with them will know what to expect - awesomeness! If you have not, then prepare to go all over the place in the best possible way.

Their book, "Phoenix Rising: Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences" is THE book I'm most excited about for 2011! I say that, because I know that it is going to be a lot of fun. Between plenty of action, and banter written by master practitioners of the craft; the awesome WILL be brought! Steam Punk, strong characters, explosions, snark .... and that's just in the first chapter ...

I have my pre-order in and after you listen to Tee & Pip, you'll know why! :)

Episode 20 is the second half of my interview with Brand Gamblin. We start off with a "scoop" about Brand's next project!  I so000 need to get him back on to discuss steam punk (maybe along with another steam punk author or two?) and definitely when this next book comes out.  Hint to other guys who do interviews similar to mine:  Get Brand on your shows.  Listeners, I think you are going to enjoy this episode :)

If you haven't listened to the first part of the interview, you can find it here.

Episode 19 is the first half of my interview with Brand Gamblin. Like an onion, "The Hidden Institute" has layers .... LAYERS O' AWESOME! Between the writing, the podcast audio production, and all the touches that Brand brings to to table; I love this book. And it has (wait for it) BEAR POLO!! We get as much into why the book is great as we can without the spoilers. Of course, Brand and I find other stuff to talk about ... but why are you still reading this ... please go listen to the episode now! (Did I mention "BEAR POLO!"?) :)

Episode 18 is the second half of my interview with J. Daniel Sawyer. I try to keep up with Dan for another hour. Perhaps not all that well, but I have fun trying :) If you haven't heard the first half of the interview, please check it out here . I'll probably have Dan back on the show but AFTER I've caught up on the list of awesome stuff that her recommends I watch/read/listen (you might want to also). Dan is always a great podcast guest and this interview is no exception :)

Episode 17 is the first half of my interview with J. Daniel Sawyer.  If Dan doesn't know something about media creation, it probably isn't worth knowing. ... O.K. that may be an exaggeration, but probably not by as much as one might think.  His original full cast audio novel "Down From Ten" left me guessing until the very end (in the good kind of way).  If you don't know Dan, get going and listen to the interview.  If you do know about him, you probably haven't read this far without listening to the interview first anyway :)

Episode 16 is the second half of my interview with writer, novelist, podcaster, and really nice human being Arlene Radasky. She is the author of the historical fiction (with a little fantasy added in for good measure) novel "The Fox". "The Fox" was inspired by the archaeological find know as "Lindow Man" (Wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lindow_Man), so the book appeals to the science & history geek in me as well as its being a well done story. If you haven't listened to the first half, please go back and check it out. :)
