Evil Genius Chronicles Podcast for August 31, 2009 – “Conversation with James Patrick Kelly”

Here is the direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for August 31, 2009. This show is entirely a conversation I had with science fiction author James Patrick Kelly about this upcoming panel at Dragon*Con and how the podcast world can be useful to the writing world. We discuss how he got started podcasting his fiction, what information would have let him make different and better decisions, ways writers can use new media to their advantage, how repeatable the early experiments are at scale and much much more.

Jim Kelly Podcast

James Patrick Kelly is a great SF writer who I have interviewed for both Voices in Your Head (for which I really need to do some new shows) and Reality Break. He’s been posting MP3s of his readings of his fiction for a long time and now he has a podcast feed for it. Rock on. He emailed me a portion of a column that he wrote for Asimov’s SF magazine (which won’t appear for 6 months). In it, he cited me as someone who urged him to podcast when he could have been the first writer doing it, and on which he passed. I think it’s hilarious that this will be the context in which I first appear in Asimov’s.
