The Speculative Fiction Cantina (part of the WriteStream Radio Network) is a weekly radio program and podcast:
The Speculative Fiction Cantina: your weekly hypodermic injection of science fiction, fantasy, horror, alternate history, steampunk, cyberpunk, and things weird and wonderful in the world of books and writers. We ask authors the hard questions. You’ll hear from writers who bend the rules and drive the narrative. Join S. Evan Townsend on this journey over the rainbow and through the looking glass. And remember to take the red pill.
In this podcast, Evan interviews Marina Fontaine, author of the realistic dystopia Chasing Freedom. Marina, a co-founder of the CLFA, is an interesting dystopian writer because she was born and raised in the former Soviet Union, so she knows a few things about living under oppressive government. The day-to-day reality of such a life is a hallmark of her plainspoken fiction.
