Welcome to episode two of Magical Space Pussycats! Thank you so much, returning listeners, for coming back to us, and for new listeners – welcome! We’re a speculative fiction book club, news, and chat show and we’re delighted you’re here. In this episode, we talk about our initial thoughts on Pat Cadigan’s Synners, discuss everything from women in coding to Pokemon Go to ALL THE AWARDS, and finish it up (as always!) by telling you what we’re currently reading!
