  1. #32 – Batman – Settling the Score

    Holy film score discussion, this time it’s Batman! Join Jon and Andy in Gotham City as they talk about Danny Elfman’s classic 1989 score. How does Elfman sell the sound of a dark comic book world? What peculiar path led him to film music in the first place? And, is this the best movie theme ever written on an airplane?

  2. #41 – North by Northwest – Settling the Score

    George Kaplan? No, you must be mistaken, I’m an episode about Bernard Herrmann’s score for the 1959 madcap wrong-man adventure North by Northwest. What’s behind Herrmann’s extremely process-derived writing style? Does this movie really make any sense, and what can the music do about it? And, what did this movie inspire Jon to attach to himself?

  3. In Our Time: The Rosetta Stone

    Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss one of the most famous museum objects in the world, shown in the image above in replica, and dating from around 196 BC. It is a damaged, dark granite block on which you can faintly see three scripts engraved: Greek at the bottom, Demotic in the middle and Hieroglyphs at the top. Napoleon’s soldiers found it in a Mamluk fort at Rosetta on the Egyptian coast, and soon realised the Greek words could be used to unlock the hieroglyphs. It was another 20 years before Champollion deciphered them, becoming the first to understand the hieroglyphs since they fell out of use 1500 years before and so opening up the written culture of ancient Egypt to the modern age.

  4. Rocket Fuel: Cooking the Books with Mary Robinette Kowal – FRAN WILDE

    What Mary Robinette Kowal brings to the Cooking the Books table is no fewer than seven novels, two short story collections, more than 70 short stories, a blog that boosts other writers with My Favorite Bit, advocacy and volunteering, the Writing Excuses Podcast AND Cruise, the Futurescapes Writing Workshop, and a somewhat unfortunate attachment to okra, although she explains to me frequently that I’ve just not had it cooked properly. There’s a lot more as well (audio recordings, puppetry, a serious dedication to both fashion and typewriters…)

    Mary is an outstanding cook and has been visiting NASA often for research on her latest books — part of the Lady Astronaut of Mars series — The Calculating Stars and The Fated Sky, the first of which is out July 3. (the second appears August 21). So of course we asked her about space food.

    She joins Aliette de Bodard and me for Cooking the Books this month (in our 65th interview & 38th podcast episode!) to dish on all the details.

  5. The Importance of Tangerines: Cooking the Books with Yoon Ha Lee – FRAN WILDE

    This is the podcast in which we try not to fangirl. (That’s all of the podcasts, actually.) We failed. (Ok I failed, Aliette asked excellent questions from her berth as an instructor on the Writing Excuses cruise and I just … well, you’ll see.)

    Yoon Ha Lee’s first collection, Conservation of Shadows, and his short stories at Tor.com, Lightspeed, Beneath Ceaseless Skies and more, have been favorites for a long time. When Ninefox Gambit came out last year, I was hooked, and Raven Strategem has come through even stronger.

    On the heels of his second Hexarchate novel, Yoon stopped by to discuss tangerines, researching the history of kimchi, and the complexities of characters including Jedao. It’s all for Cooking the Books this month, both here and at the extension kitchen over at The Booksmugglers! (check out Yoon’s Booksmugglers Bonus answers!).

    It’s time once again to find out who Jon and Andy are wearing on the Oscar red carpet! How does this crop of nominees for Best Original Score stack up to previous years’? What did each movie want from its music? And, what stupid schtick did they put at the beginning of this one?

  7. #46 – 2021 Oscars Special – Settling the Score

    This time, the red carpet comes to Jon and Andy: join us as we delve into the score nominees for this year’s unusual Oscars. Are film score fashions shifting? Who’s on what wavelength, and who might not be? And, are Jon and Andy being even crankier than usual, or is it just a weird year?
