MPT Podcast #7 – Alastair Reynolds (Part 1)

Welcome to the first proper podcast of 2011.

Now I’ve always been thrilled to be able to do the podcasts with musicians whose work I love but I am unbelievably chuffed that my latest podcast  ‘victim’ is renowned SF author Alastair Reynolds.

Anyone who has visited his website will know that Al is a big, make that huge, music fan. Given that he has regularly talked about some of my favourite artists, there’s also a fair degree of common ground with the sort of stuff featured in the blog.

So here’s the first genuine MPT Music/SF crossover. Due to the amount of material that I ended up with I’m splitting this into two podcasts. The first deal with Al’s writing although it is also interspersed with his choice of music.
