S&L Podcast – #95 – Have You Seen This Direwolf?

We’re all giddy about our new video show at Geek and Sundry, but we promise there’s more to the episode than just that.  Though if you have questions about what the video show means, hopefully loads of them are answered right off the top of the show. We also dig into Lies of Locke Lamora (though we don’t wrap it up quite yet) and help save SciFi. Literally.


Tom: 2008 Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon Vintners Blend 

Veronica: 2005 Phenom Merlot 


That online book club you like is adding a YouTube show to it’s lineup

Singularity & Co. – Save the SciFI!

Yes we know what the next book will be – and yes we know it’s not a laser, but the book after that will be and we need your help picking it! 

If made into a movie, who would you cast?

Finally a real Prometheus trailer and not just a teaser!

I had the honor of getting to see Tom and Veronica at the WonderCon signing this Saturday. Tom gave me a shirt and I thought it was just an XL when he gave it to me, but was elated to see it was an XXXL when I checked it later. I’m so used to free giveaways being so small on me and most people overlook us big boys. I’m a big fan of all that you and I can’t thank you enough. 

Literally a Big Fan,

Mike P.

Tom and Veronica, 

I’m very excited about your video podcast, and all teh geek and sundry goodness coming. But I have one concern: Is there a ‘what we’re drinking’ section? If there is no drinking to begin the show, it can’t really be an S&L podcast, can it? 

Keep up the good work.
