124 - The "Canon" Episode w/ Jeannette Ng & Dr. Lisa Yaszek

Jesse Adams, Rob Gilmore, & Allie Charlesworth

Some say there are certain works & authors in SF/F/H that one Must Read in order to appreciate or understand the genres. But with all the amazing new work coming out from new voices around the world, are the so-called "canonical" works even relevant anymore? How can fans navigate the world of speculative fiction in a way that makes it meaningful (and let's not forget FUN) for them? We get into it with two fantastic guests: 2019 Astounding Award winner & author of Under the Pendulum Sun, Jeannette Ng, and Georgia Tech Regents Professor of Science Fiction Studies & author of The Future is Female, Dr. Lisa Yaszek. Heads up: there may be some discussion of gross '70s Jell-O molds.
