Episode 209 – With John DeNardo

On October 21, 2014, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

sf_signalIn episode 209 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome back John “The Bagel OverLord” DeNardo of SF Signal.com 

About John:

John is an avid reader and reviewer. (See John’s review criteria.) His book reading comes second only to his book buying, which some (including John himself) might call compulsive. (We often use the B-word.) His frequent jaunts to the local bookstores are legendary in his own mind. Although John reads an occasional fantasy/mystery/non-fiction book, his tastes lean heavily toward science fiction. John’s tastes within any genre vary, but he is fond of classic sf even though he has a hit-and-miss experience with classic award-winning sf. John also likes to alternate novel-length fiction with shorter works, so he frequently reads anthologies between reading sessions. John’s favorite authors tend to be Golden Age authors like Theodore Sturgeon, Isaac Asimov etc., but he also likes the new kids on the block like Alastair Reynolds, John Scalzi, etc. For a better idea of what he likes, see John’s Year in Review for 2003200420052006200720082009, 2010 and 2011.

    If you ate a bagel for each time it was mentioned on this episode… 🙂

    I only vaguely remember the Fred and John episode of the Functional Nerds, but I had not heard the story of it being recorded in a hot car!

    Best. Guest. EVER!
