Robots & Radioactivity: An Interview with Terri Favro

Season 3, Ep. 30

Linda chats with Terri Favro, an Toronto-based, Italian-Canadian author who is poised to release her next novel, The Sisters Sputnik, a sequel to her acclaimed speculative fiction novel, Sputnik's Children. They have a leisurely conversation -- in this, the first part of their two-part interview -- discussing all manner of subjects, from

  • the importance of storytelling
  • to the appropriate terminology for robots
  • to growing up in an era of nuclear uncertainty (and not so unlike now either).

There is also a lengthier discussion about Eli Mandel's Station Eleven and the wonderful audiobook version read by Kirsten Potter (around the 30-minute mark). Stay tuned for part 2 of this episode!
