New Aussie SF Podcast “Two Chairs Talking”

Two Chairs Talking is an interesting new Aussie podcast from David Grigg and Perry Middlemiss with a literary and SF bent. While it’s mostly focused on speculative fiction books and stories, the hosts are not afraid to leap into entertaining discussions about other genres and media formats.

David was the chairman of the 43rd World Science Fiction Convention held in Melbourne Australia in 1985. Perry was the chairman of the 57th World Science Fiction Convention in 1999 and co-Chair of the 68th Worldcon in 2010. Two chairs, get it?
