The Geek's Guide to the Galaxy

I’m the co-host of The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast, which is hosted on Wired.com.

The Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy is an interview/talk show hosted by editor John Joseph Adams (Wastelands, The Living Dead) and author David Barr Kirtley (New Voices in Science Fiction, Fantasy: The Best of the Year).

The show covers fantasy and science fiction in literature, film, graphic novels, and video games, as well as related topics such as science, technology, and critical thinking. Each episode runs for approximately one hour, and features an interview with a guest, along with geeky commentary from Dave and John.

Guests include novelists, such as George R. R. Martin (A Game of Thrones), Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club), Charlaine Harris (the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood series), Neal Stephenson (Anathem, Reamde), Naomi Novik (His Majesty’s Dragon), Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles), Orson Scott Card (Ender’s Game), China Mieville (Perdido Street Station), and Jim Butcher (The Dresden Files); filmmakers, such as Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) and Alexandre Philippe (The People vs. George Lucas); comic book writers, such as Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead) and Chris Roberson (Superman); video game designers Ron Gilbert (The Secret of Monkey Island) and Chet Faliszek (Left 4 Dead); science writers P. W. Singer (Wired for War) and Mary Roach (Stiff); and scientists Neil deGrasse Tyson (Nova scienceNOW) and Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion).
