Aces & Jokers: A Wild Cards Podcast

We’re reading and discussing Wild Cards, a set of shared-world superhero novels edited by George R. R. Martin. We don't own Wild Cards and this is not an official podcast. We use brief clips from the audiobooks and other sources to illustrate and aid discussion. Spoilers abound.

Mar 23, 2018

In this episode we discuss the following stories from Aces High (Wild Cards Book 2):

  • Pennies From Hell (Lewis Shiner)
  • Jube (George R R Martin)
  • Unto The Sixth Generation (Walter Jon Williams)
  • Ashes To Ashes (Roger Zelazny)
  • If Looks Could Kill (Walton Simons)

Our fantastic theme tune is Ace Of Spades (8 Bit Remix Cover Version) by the great folks at 8 Bit Universe. Follow them on YouTube and Twitter.

Full disclosure: "Space Yeast" is a term Angel probably lifted from Katie Rask's highly enjoyable Wild Cards re-read on Tor.
