Happy 100th, Galactic Suburbia!

I first heard of the Australian speculative fiction podcast Galactic Suburbia here at Hoyden About Town in 2011 and then promptly didn’t listen to it for a further three years, until I found myself doing just enough driving and sitting around watching children’s swimming lessons to make podcasts worthwhile, at which point I promptly subscribed and it became a fave.

And a great time it was to subscribe too, because they were in the countdown to their 100th episode, which has been up on their site for nearly a week. I probably will never count as a real Galactic Suburbia fan, because I don’t intend to go back and listen from episode 1 as many new fans apparently still do, and I am not making an actual Galactic Suburbia-themed cake for their contest (but perhaps you should! entries close 27th May), but here’s the next best thing.

First, a picture of a cake! Not my cake! But a cake!

And second, a note that you can pick up the Galactic Suburbia Scrapbook at Twelfth Planet Press, including several interview transcripts. (Accessibility note: as Lauredhel noted in 2011, Galactic Suburbia is not regularly transcribed.)

Happy 100th!

  1. Tansy Rayner-Roberts has started a new serial based on the Three Musketeers in space gender swapped. The first chapter is available now. Will hunt down the link. Is most enjoyable.

  2. Allow me to assure you that there is absolutely no prereq for you to go back and listen to all of the eps 😀 Because that’s a whole lot of the three of us… and there is a possibility of getting very sick of us…
    (btw awesome cake!)
