Normal shabcast service has been resumed after the unplanned emergency anti-fascist edition from earlier this month (though you may be hearing more from Phil and myself on the issue of the Hugos and the nazis). This episode of the Shabogan Graffiti podcast is the long-awaited continuation of my mammoth chat with the lovely Josh Marsfelder, writer of the ridiculously good Vaka Rangi blog. A slightly disjointed episode this one, but you're getting all the good bits. The bits I chopped out are mostly me (Jack, that is) being inconsequential. What's left is mostly Josh being eloquent and passionate about TNG, Trek generally, Dirty Pair, aesthetics, fan fiction, slash, Mary Sues, singularity archetypes, and all sorts and manners and conditions of interesting stuff. We also do a bit of violently malevolent hating on Wesley Crusher... which should be entirely acceptable to all right-thinking people. You'll love it, trust me. Hardcore nattering, with no fascism to ruin everything. Paint a bulls-eye on your heart right now.
