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 30, 2018

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

  • Jube (George R R Martin)
  • Unto The Sixth Generation (Walter Jon Williams)
  • Winter's Chill (George R R Martin)
  • Relative Difficulties (Melinda Snodgrass)
  • With a Little Help From His Friends (Victor Milán)
  • By Lost Ways (Pat Cadigan)
  • Mr Koyama's Comet (Walter Jon Williams)
  • Half Past Dead (John J Miller)

You can blame both of us for Ben's yelling voice in this one. He forgot to record using a monitor; Angel is too incompetent with Adobe Audition to understand how to fix it.

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.
