The Writer and the Critic: Episode 15

The latest episode of our podcast is now available for direct download and streaming from the website or via subscription from iTunes. Feedback is most welcome!

Here are the show notes:

On this episode of The Writer and the Critic, Kirstyn McDermott and Ian Mond announce a New Idea for a future episode of the podcast. They would like to spend an episode reviewing a handful originally self-published eBooks as recommended by their listeners. Whether this ends up being a Good Idea or a Bad Idea will largely depend on listener participation, so get listening and get participating. There may even be prizes involved … more info on this next month once they work out what potential prizes they actually have to offer! After a discussion about their current (e)reading habits and changes in book buying practices, the duo then move onto talk about the two books chosen for the podcast this month.

A lengthy discussion of and around — and around and around — Redemption in Indigo by Karen Lord begins at 18:30 with the conversation about  Zoo City by Lauren Beukes starting at 01:07:30. Yes, it’s a long podcast this time. That’s what happens with books that are interesting, intelligent and inspiring.

Redemption in Indigo and Zoo City

Tune back in around the 01:57:20 point for final remarks.

Next month, Ian has recommended The Silver Wind by Nina Allan while Kirstyn has picked The Courier’s New Bicycle by Kim Westwood. Read ahead and join in the fun!
