PseudoPod 559: Granite Requires

by T.J. Berry.

T.J. BERRY has held various jobs, including political blogger, bakery owner, and a disastrous two weeks in a razor blade factory. She now writes science fiction, fantasy, and horror from the outskirts of Seattle with considerably fewer on-the-job injuries. She is a 2016 graduate of the Clarion West writing workshop. Her fiction has appeared in Clowns: The Unlikely Coulrophobia Remix and at PodCastle. You can find her on Twitter @TJaneBerry.

Says Berry: “There’s a saying that Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backward and in high heels. Granite Requires is for all the women who navigate the horrors of the world with gravel-filled flip flops and a baby on their hip.”

This week’s reader – Laura Hobbs works in infosec by day and is a random crafter by night. Twitter is her social media of choice, and she despises the word “cyber”. When asked nicely, she sometimes reads things for people on the internet. You can find her online at soapturtle.net

Schist requires an ear, so Kaidence probably won’t swap for an eye, but I’ll kick myself if I don’t ask. A missing ear is easy to work with, just grow your girl’s hair long to cover it up. And since they only slice off the outside part, not the guts inside, schist people hear just as well as anybody else. You always find a way to work around the pieces they take off you.




Listen to this week's Pseudopod.

I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

Is this a metaphor for workplace injuries in mining towns?

Dayyyyyyymn. Really cool. Love the fantasy world and could see it being a novel. Wasn't particularly terrifying, but super dark and riveting.

Loved the worldbuilding, loved the concept. Would totally read a novel of this.

I had forgotten that "Bill Cosby Father of the Year" bit until I relistened. The malapropisms were delightful.
