Tor.com Audio: Fiction with Mur Lafferty
For over a year, Tor.com has brought you excellent short fiction on our site, but now, podnovelist extraordinaire Mur Lafferty is making the audio of these stories available to you in podcast form. Weâ€™ll be bringing you both new fiction and our archived stories, so donâ€™t worry if youâ€™ve missed anything archived on the site. The podcast will also include mention of the recent topics on the Tor.com blog, convention reports, and interviews from time to time.
There's many more podcasts I regularly follow. But these will do for a start.
Oh yes....one more...
If you're a Blues fan, The Roadhouse
("The finest blues you never heard.") is a must
listen. Straight blues, blues-rock, roots, Chicago-style...this podcast covers it all. Something for everyone.
The Roadhouse is a true labor of love, intended to present the full range of blues music to a broad Internet audience.
Iâ€™ve often heard folks who are unfamiliar with blues note that itâ€™s â€śsuch simple music.â€ť Indeed, it is. But the range of blues styles is breathtaking. From the Delta to Chicago, from pre-war to jump, acoustic, electric, harps, horns â€“ itâ€™s difficult, if not impossible, to describe the emotions conveyed with such a simple form. Blues music is, in my mind, that last great act of defiance; a declaration to the world that, â€śYou gave me your toughest shot and, yes, Iâ€™m still standing.â€ť Blues lovers everywhere understand.
With that in mind, Iâ€™m dedicated, via The Roadhouse, to preserving this priceless musical form, to presenting a broad range of blues each week (much of it by artists that even hardcore blues fans may not be aware of), and to promoting gleeful chair-dancing with each and every show.
