Interview #2: Gail Carriger

May 20th, 2009

The first 1 ½ minutes of the interview have mild echo and noise issues. These unfortunate effects cease and do not recur after the initial 90 seconds.

Looking for Additional Editor(s)

February 23rd, 2009

Hello all,

Would you like to become an editor here at steampod? I can’t offer any monetary consideration for this, and can’t promise there will always be much to do.

There are times, in which I get stories, which I feel are good, but not so great that I start pulling out contracts to prepare for them right away. Its these that I would like to get a second opinion on. I am also hoping that you will submit first opinion on pieces as well.

If your interested in assisting me, here is what I need you to do e-mail editor@steampod.org. In this e-mail include the following:

  1. Why you should be my editor
  2. What your favorite story of the podcast has been, and why
  3. What experience do you have in Steampunk in general (costumes, cons, etc)
  4. How much time do you think you’ll have on a weekly basis to be an editor?
  5. What is your favorite steampunk movie/book/etc and why?

You don’t have to go in that order, but those should be the things you cover. Please make it in essay form, and use proper English (either Queen’s English or American).

If you are chosen, you will be informed. Once its been decided it will be announced on the podcast and probably by an earlier blog entry as well.
