Take a gander at all the wonderful Boing Boing podcasts we have lined up for you to listen to, free of charge!
GWEEK 124: I talked to the visionary artist Jim Woodring about his imaginary universe called The Unifactor.
HAPPY MUTANTS 001: I interviewed Mark Williams and Sasha Robinson, designers of a new instant-on, lithium-ion battery vaporizer called The Firefly.
INCREDIBLY INTERESTING AUTHORS 003: John Durant's new book, The Paleo Manifesto, blends science and culture, anthropology and philosophy, distilling the lessons from his adventures and showing how to apply them to day-to-day life.
APPS FOR KIDS 053: In this episode, Jane and I put aside our smartphones to talk about the new Plants vs. Zombies graphic novel, in which two kids team up with Crazy Dave, the deranged zombie prepper, to rid Neighborville of the invading horde of undead humans.
THE NEW DISRUPTORS 052: Jean MacDonald was formerly best known for her role as a software marketing and public-relations guru for a major Macintosh software developer, but her work to create App Camp for Girls has eclipsed that.
YOU ARE NOT SO SMART 013: Are new communication tools turning us into navel-gazing human/brand hybrids, or are we developing a new set of senses that allow us to benefit from never severing contact with the people most important to us? David McRaney interviewed Clive Thompson to find out if new technology is improving our thinking or dampening it.
TELL ME SOMETHING I DON'T KNOW 020: Ed, Jim, and Jason speak with Joseph Lupo, a printmaker and professor at West Virginia University. His work focuses on how writers and artists communicate through comics. For more than a decade, he has deconstructed and examined a single volume of The Invincible Iron Man comic book: Volume 01, Issue 178, published in 1984.
NOT PLAYING 004: It's another homage to the heyday of 1989 this week, as Dan takes Lex on a trip—through the imagination!—to a land called Iowa, and a sport called baseball. Yes, we're watching Kevin Costner in Field of Dreams.
RIYL 032: The Atomic Elbow is a professional wrestling fanzine published by Robert Newsome with a circulation of 100 copies. If you aren't a fan of professional wrestling, you will probably become one after listening to Robert's insightful remarks.
SWORD AND LASER 154: It’s a very dragon-filled episode, as Veronica and Tom kick off their December pick, A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir by Lady Trent, actually by Marie Brennan.
BOARDS GORE AND SWORDS: In this episode, Red and Ivan discuss the Catelyn V and Samwell III chapters of George R.R. Martin's A Storm of Swords. Also covered: Locke and the confusion with Vargo Hoat, Ivan's responses to Spam emails, foreshadowing, the women of House Mormont, a horse riding a horse, the legitimization of children born out of wedlock, DC’s The Seven, and an unfortunate amount of ambient gunfire.
