My close friend and fellow sci-fi aficionado Benny Lichter, began our own podcast to discuss sci-fi works that we felt were under-analyzed or plain awesome and needed more said about them. In this episode, Benny and I discuss parts of Samuel Delany’s Silent Interviews: On Language, Race, Sex, Science Fiction, and Some Comics. We attempt to disprove Delany’s arguments about how to define sci-fi, and as expected, fail miserably. In the second half of the episode, we discuss how Delany’s ideas apply to Gardner Dozois’ story “A Special Kind of Morning” and rave about how generally awesome it is. Definitely spoilers, so check them out before you give it a listen for best mindblowery.
