Pseudopod 361: The Murmurous Paleoscope

I narrated another story for Pseudopod, and now it’s live!

“The Murmurous Paleoscope” was originally published in THE THREE-LOBED BURNING EYE and can be read there. The story accurately reflects a few elements of 19th century fossil hunting culture: the importance of shales; the early women fossil hunters (including Mary Anning, for whom the Lens in the story is named); and the fossil “Bone Wars” of Othniel Marsh and Edward Cope, which really did get violent and excessively paranoid.

DIXON CHANCE is the “just for the joy of it” pseudonym of David Ellis Dickerson, a regular contributor to “This American Life” and other public radio shows, and the author of the memoir HOUSE OF CARDS (Riverhead 2009) about my career as a writer at Hallmark. My work has appeared in The Atlantic MonthlyThe Gettysburg Review, and Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror.

This story was an enormous amount of fun. You should listen, and then donate to support the great work that Escape Artists do in Pseudopod, Escape Pod and Podcastle!

And I must say that I was utterly DELIGHTED by the way I am introduced as the narrator by Alasdair Stuart, the host:

“High Queen of Awesome and close friend of Nina Kimberly the Merciless. Evil space creatures cringe at her tread.”

Podcast notes from PG…

Here is the audio from the Episode 9 Hangout back in early June. Yep, June.

We had internet connectivity issues that night (mostly my end). As a result I dreaded working on this. And I had summer stuff with the kids. Yeah yeah, I know.

Anyways, my bad. The next episode will be free. I promise.

Oh yeah… this is also the longest episode ever. And that’s without bloopers and show audio (this is the straight talk only).

And you can also watch the video on youtube!

Guest Appearance: Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things #62

Originally posted here!

Welcome to a new episode of “Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things.”

We’re still recapping the end of season #3 of Game of Thrones!

“She’s Always A Woman To Me“

As the song title implies, my guests and I will be discussing the multi-faceted “ladies” of the story.

Christiana Ellis and Tracee join me for an epic discussion of these fascinating female characters!

In some ways, these more “traditional” ladies are more difficult to talk about and more challenging in general.

But it’s that very challenge that makes them both great characters and “trope-busting” trail-blazers.

On the docket today:

1. How these women are, in a way, are even more interesting than their female warrior counterparts

2. How do solve a problem like….Catelyn Stark?

3. The clever servant

4. Those wily Tyrell women!

5. These two gals really work hard for the money!

6. The new mother

7. Sansa Stark: Love and learning curves

8. Melisandre: A Femme Fatale with a twist

9. Cersei Lannister: The woman hating feminist!

These women defy convention and have rewritten what a woman can be in genre fiction.

They are strong, sexual, complicated and every inch a woman.

They also have the power to alter the very course of the story….

For that reason alone, they are awesome!

Guest Appearance: Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things #59

Ken Lopez was kind enough to invite me onto his Game of Thrones podcast!

Originally posted here!

Welcome to a brand new episode of “Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things.”


“Suffragette City“

Today we carry on with a month-long season #3 wrap up by talking about some of the ladies of Game of Thrones.

The great Matt Murdick, from “Podcast Winterfell,” and Christiana from the “Beyond the Wall” podcast join me to talk about the female warriors of the story.

These women are tough. They fight and buck the system. They’re fierce…..but are still women to the core.

On the docket today:

1. The Wolf-Girl

2. The Mother of Dragons….who’s also a scared, idealistic little girl.

3. The remarkable evolution of Osha the Wildling.

4. Daughter of Salt and Stone

5. A Wildling in Love

6. A revolutionary Concept: The truly feminine knight

We’ve had bad-ass female characters as focal points in the last 20 years: Clarice Starling, Dana Scully and Buffy…..but in this story, we’re treated to at least 7!

These women are strong, physical, and ruled just as much by their hearts as their heads.

Complicated and endlessly fascinating.

Long may these women reign!
