Orthopedic Horseshoes are Herb Kauderer and Alan Katerinsky. It’s a podcast where they talk about things and talk to people, or as they say “A show where cranky old men discourse on American Society and media.” I listened to their last podcast entitled “Putting Lipstick on a Science Fiction Convention” and didn’t find them cranky at all. Here’s what it’s about:
The episode features interviews with Anne Cecil about starting a convention, renowned SF author William Tenn (Philip Klass) about Theodore Sturgeon, and Nebula-winning author Mary Turzillo about her poetry collections Your Cat & Other Space Aliens, and Dragon Soup.
Cohosts Herb & Al try to capture the flavor of a Science Fiction convention by bringing their interviews from Confluence 2008. They also discuss filking, science, socializing, the hospitality suite, “Betelgeuse Bridge,” and NESFA Press.
I can vouch for the total righteousness of William Tenn and for NESFA Press.
