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 Marked Cards (Wild Cards Book 14).

Show Notes

I'm tired so I'm phoning these in this week:

 Finally, Ben has asked me to issue a formal apology on his part to bisexual people. He says:
“The power I had over the bisexuals is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly. I have been remorseful of my actions. And I’ve tried to learn from them. And run from them. Now I’m aware of the extent of the impact of my actions. I have spent my long and lucky podcasting career talking and saying anything I want. I will now step back and take a long time to listen. Thank you for reading.”
