BT027. They expect you to do weird stuff

BT027. They expect you to do weird stuff

Guest: Katrina Ramos Atienza & Ronald S. Lim | Host: Kat Mayo | Audio producer: Rudi Bremer | Recorded: 10/5/2016 Manila

If it’s true that we should start the year as we mean to go on, then today’s podcast is perfect. This interview with Filipino authors Katrina Ramos Atienza and Ronald S. Lim touches on a range of interesting topics in genre fiction. It’s alternately serious and fun, and we switch between Filipino and mainstream romance, and the intersections between the two. As I conducted this interview, I was silently castigating myself for not allocating more time to explore the many interesting ideas and insights that Ron and Katrina raised.

FYI, I didn’t include a link to Literotica or T-Rex porn on Amazon in the show notes. But I’m sure you can find those on your own, if you really wish! (Warning: Very NSFW.)
