We Are Professionals: The Podcast

A horror novelist, a swordfighter, and a cryptkeeper walk into a podcast network studio…

Authors Michael David Anderson and Thomas A Farmer, along with comic artist Whitney “Airpants” Petelka, sit down with fellow creatives to discuss the PROCESS. Actors, comedians, musicians, filmmakers, and other authors and artists fill out the diverse guest list.

New episodes drop on Fridays, chock-full of tangential dark humor and the distinct insanity of Story Time! Bring your own therapeutic barracuda.

Remember how AiA’s three hosts recently submitted stories to an anthology by Old Sins? We’ve got publisher and author Joseph Cadotte on the airwaves, and he’s gonna tell us whose story gets published!

No, not really, but we do talk about the anthology we’re submitting to (Beyond Steampunk: Fake News), alternate history, syncretism, and the appearance of mythological characters across world religions. Joseph gets to run through a litigious Story Time where his mischievous priestess Salome goes up against Big Lizard Insurance in a court battle! Will justice prevail, and just what is a Babylonian lottery, anyway?

Joseph Cadotte is the founder of the Old Sins Publishing cooperative, on Facebook @oldsins. Check out his hard science fiction space opera ‘Job, Herself’, as well as his graphic novel collaboration with prior AiA guest Elizabeth Kidder, ‘Jannah Station: A Soft Murder’.

It’s our first episode without Mike in the studio, and we would be lonely except that he keeps teasing us with his idyllic weather and palm trees. Tom and Whitney have audiodramatist and voice actor William Bond Nunn on the hot seat, and our guest does deliver! Talk runs around the role of fanfiction as a creative outlet, the process Will goes through as he puts his work together, and pop culture. Just, like, so much pop culture. Story Time brings Rick and Morty of tv show fame to Las Vegas, where we do all kinds of strange things to the Luxor.

William Bond Nunn can be found on Facebook @william.b.nunn, Twitter @WillBNunn, and Youtube @WillBNunn. Check out his audiodrama “Rick and Morty C-138: Call of Rickthulhu” and be sure to pick up “The Nerd Voice Podcast“!
