Something a little different this week. A podcast rather than not a podcast! No, really. It is actually different, as it was recorded in front of a live audience in Nottingham Game City back in (er) the past. October. Man! Doesn’t time fly when you’re incredibly busy (or rather, moderately busy and lazy). Anyway! This time I talk to Antony Johnston about his collaboration with Sam Hart, THE COLDEST CITY. This spy thriller set at the very last days of the Cold War is also the first complete OGN we’ve covered, meaning we wander over the whole thing. The audience also altered the dynamic, as sitting in front of a crowd, on expensive chairs in a spotlight does has a way of making you want to go all serious. So less nob gags than normal.
Or there’s the honey trap of the embed. Can you resist it?
Of course you can’t.
AND STUDY AIDS!
Here’s Scrivener, the software he writes on.
Coldest City is a real grown up book! It totally has page numbers on it. You can follow it for real.
Our theme tune? Los Campesinos’ We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, you silly goose. It always is!
