Space Dog Podcast: featuring new and old recordings of science fiction and fantasy authors!
Hello Everybody!

Please help get the word out about a new podcast, The Space Dog Podcast. The Space Dog Podcast is the official podcast of the Science Fiction Oral History Association (www.SFOHA.org). SFOHA is a non-profit dedicated to the recorded history of Science Fiction.

The first audio episode is from 1976 and features Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov, Lester del Rey, Frederik Pohl, and Gordon R. Dickson. That's four Science Fiction Grand Masters. Yes, we pulled out the big guns for this one. They are all featured in a one hour show called The Ballantine Science Fiction Hour. It's quite fun to hear these masters shoot the you-know-what.

Where to go? The site is:


and the podcast feed is:

the iTunes feed is:

The new site has four different random headers, so if you hit refresh you'll eventually see them all.

If you Facebook/Twitter/Blog or whatever, please help spread the word!

Very cool. Added to my slew of sf podcasts.

Would go nicely with Fred Pohl's blog, too.

I've been dying to hear SFOHA material in podcasts, so I applaud this development!

ISTR SFOHA used to be about the oral history of fandom. Do you know if I'm under a misapprehension, or when they changed over?

Changed over?

It is inclusively about topics science fictional and fannish. Convention recordings of fans and pros alike, other recordings of interest to fans.

The conversation just podcasted may be all authors, but one of them won the Hugo award for best fanwriter this year...drawing a hard line between the history of fandom and the history of produm doesn't make much sense to me. Most of our catalog of our recordings is on the website. If there's a more faanish one you'd like to see podcasted, please let us know.

Oh, I was just going by the list of recordings mentioned on the site you linked to. I certainly know who Fred Pohl is, and that he wears fan, editor, and author hats.

If we can get Chandler Davis back for programming next year at SFContario, he might be a good person to record. [He was at the first US con, also carpooled to Torcon 1 with Judy Merrill and Fred Pohl, etc., etc.]
