SF in SF Panel Discussion Featuring Eric Simons, Kim Stanley Robinson and Terry Bisson on October 17, 2009

Agony Column Podcast

“That seems to me, totally wrong.”
  — Terry Bisson to Eric Simons

Yes, I have a lot of catching up to do. And so we forge forward, with this podcast of a fabulous panel from October’s SF in SF, featuring Eric Simons, Kim Stanley Robinson and Terry Bisson. This was SF in SF’s first experiment that I know featuring a non-fiction writer, and it is one I hope that they shall repeat.

You know that you’re going to have a lot of fun when you put Kim Stanley Robinson on a panel, because, he’s well — known to be witty and funny and very insightful. Eric Simons was an unknown, until her read, at which point he was revealed to be a perfect match for Robinson. Add in the ever-sharp Terry Bisson, a smattering of house commenters and a great, controversial subject, that being Evolution and Charles “Changed the World” Darwin — and you are guaranteed a good time whether you’re there (which is always better because you can sip fine whiskey while participating) or whether you’re listening on your way into work via this linked MP3 audio file.
