Ep 76 – Post-RAWR

Ever wondered if you should attend a writing retreat? What happens there? What will I achieve by attending? Welcome to a part two of where we try to answer those questions and more!

Ocean flew off to RAWR 2017 and recorded two podcasts while there. It’s now the last night before everyone heads home. The retreat is almost over. The frantic writing, critiquing and comradery is coming to an end, so Ocean sits down to discuss the amazing experience with the other attendees: Buni, NightEyes, Ryft, Otter and TJ. They talk about what it was like, what they learned, and what this retreat did for them.

Ep 73 – Xmas Mailbag – Pt.1

It may be four months late, but we went through some of our mailbag right before Christmas and here it is. We go through some emails and talk about feedback from previous episodes. Also we dabble a bit about if you wrote something that would infringe copyright.

Ep 72 – Fur For All

How much does species have to matter to make a story furry? Does each story require an origin tale to explain why anthropomorphic animals are walking around? Or can we just have walking talking animals for no reason at all? We discuss our origins that pushed us into furry, what that means for furry for all, and if there’s a line drawn between zipperbacks and true anthros for stories.

Ep 68 – ACSWS

Ocean runs off to AC 2016 and ends the con in a hotel room sitting around with other authors, editors and publishers. The gloves are off, the drinks are out and we’re ready to unwind and shoot the breeze. As usual, there’s an explicit advisory warning with our SWS shows. Otherwise, enjoy!
