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.

In this episode we discuss the first half of Jokertown Shuffle (Wild Cards Book 9). The authors that contributed to this book are:

  • Stephen Leigh
  • John Jos. Miller
  • Melinda Snodgrass
  • Victor Milán
  • Walter Jon Williams
  • Lew Shiner
  • Walton Simons
  • George R.R. Martin (editor)

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.

Odds and Ends

I can’t find the tweet suggesting that the homunculi are products of TIAMAT, so maybe you can tweet it yourself and then I’ll RT you from @acesjokerspod and then you can pretend it was your idea.

Ben is feeling great on his Jordan Peterson-inspired all-meat diet, and so can you. (NB: do not do this.)
