In this episode, my friend and work colleague, Adam Roberts, who is a prolific and excellent science fiction writer, discuss The Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson. It was a fun conversation about a novel that we both liked, but about which we both had reservations, albeit, not the same reservations.

Novel ROMANtics Podcast

by Douglas Cowie on 11 February 2021

I’m pleased to say I’ve been invited by the Amerikazentrum in Hamburg, Germany to host a monthly podcast about contemporary American literature.

The first episode, in which I discuss Bluebird, Bluebird and Heaven, My Home, two really interesting novels by Attica Locke, with academic and competitive strongman Dr. Oli Belas, is now available here.

I’m also pleased that the title of the podcast is such a ridiculous multilingual pun. Check it out every month, along with the other podcasts hosted by the Trans-Atlanticist.
