Literary Loitering 102 - Pro Evolution Narnia In Space

Apr 08, 2019, 08:28 PM

Some time in the near yet seemingly distant past (which would be around the end of last year), the cultural anarchists gathered to offer each other secret gifts to honour the season of the Jolly Red Northern Obese Man (not to be confused with his relative and arch nemesis, the Harassed Yellow Southern Gaunt Man). Over the next few months we covered those gifts on several episodes of this show, but now it’s time for the final book to be revealed!

But before we get into that there’s our usual look at what’s been happening in the cultured world, which this week include a new “comprehensive” collection of scandals, mis-steps and personality flaws of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump called Kushner Inc, how books are apparently and allegedly the “hot”, “new” fashion accessory, a good Narnia fanfiction that will never be published, using artificial intelligence to create art while maintaining a health fear of its prose, and getting paid to do literally nothing.  

Our final Secret Santa book is Wiffle Lever to Full!: Daleks, Death Stars and Dreamy-Eyed Nostalgia at the Strangest Sci-Fi Conventionsby Bob Fischer 

Also, we apologise for the audio quality in this episode. We had some technical issues during the recording.
