Polaris Audio Interviews

Last summer, when the Swirlygate Project was lumbering itself to it's feet and flapping really hard to try to get up off the ground, we recorded a handful of interviews with science fiction affictionados - actors, authors, fans, and scientists - at Polaris 22.  We posted the same questions here and got a lot of great answers, and we wanted to share the rest with you, too.

We're still collecting responses, so feel free to fill out the survey linked above, or respond to what others had to say about genre and gender in science ficiton.

Rob Goodwin - Scientist and Editor of Apogee Books. Download interview here.

Barry Alder - Author. Download interview here.

Karen David - Actress. Download interview here.

Timothy Carter - Author. Download interview here.

Tanya Huff - Author. Download interview here

We apologize in advance for the quality of the recordings - they were degraded by an equipment error, unfortunately, and we've salvaged them as best as we can.

And some video bonuses - the Doctor (every incarnation of him, at once!) answers our survey and Rachell Luttrell talks about womanhood and mothering in Stargate Atlantis.






Also, if you would like Karen and I to speak or appear at your convention about the Swirlygate Project, or you'd like to invite Mer McKay and Joan Sheppard, feel free to contact us here.
