Storytelling, Structured Procrastination and Legacy with Mary Robinette Kowal

This week on the podcast we’re joined by author, audiobook narrator, puppeteer, and podcaster (among many other things), Mary Robinette Kowal. I had the pleasure of seeing Mary give a keynote address at the Surrey International Writers’ Conference, except she gave it in an incredibly unique way – through her puppet.

It was such a moving keynote, that I knew I needed to know more. In learning a bit more about Mary, I am blown away by how she juggles various careers, albeit they all centre around storytelling.

In other super exciting news, we are giving away a copy of Mary’s most recent book, The Calculating Stars in audiobook format. Enter either over on Instagram or Twitter (see pinned post). Entries close on Wednesday, Sept 26th at 11:59 MST.
