Never mind the fact that your neighbours have had their lights up for a month already, Christmas has come early because I have an awesome episode for you featuring an interview with Ian Whates! Author of the Dark Angels and City of a Hundred Rows novels, and the man behind the multiple award-winning Newcon Press, as well as being the nicest chap in Science Fiction.

 

Stay tuned for some special publishing news at the end, as we have a super exclusive announcement that will be of interest to science fiction writers, and check out the link below for Newcon Press's current deals.

What can you remember about the start of this year? Let me jog your memory, but we did things like pubs and gyms and gigs. I had gigs. I had conventions. I had friends!

2020 is going to take way to long to recap so I've started early and looked back at January and February and some of the predictions people made back then about what sort of year we were going to have. It's crazy mad!

More treats and memories coming up for the rest of the year. Would you like to buy me a tea? Buy Donna Scott a Coffee. ko-fi.com/donnascott - Ko-fi ❤️ Where creators get donations from fans, with a 'Buy Me a Coffee' Page. (ko-fi.com)

This week, Donna is on a frugal mission to save money in the kitchen, leading her to investigate the nooks and crannies of the kitchen cupboards to match ingredients to weird recipes she's found in very old cookbooks. Plus mental health, Christmas isn't yet - stop making it Christmas, a sketch and a song!

This week Donna chats with her friend, the comedian Jon Pearson, a mere two days before Lockdown 2: This Time It's Unworkable was announced, rendering most of the tour dates he came on to plug immediately obsolete. So listen instead to hear about our crazy times as pub managers, running quizzes with idiots, and find out which one of us kept the bowling alley, and which one of us could have done GCHQ's job for them. 

Jon's latest podcast adventures with Harriet Dyer and Lindsey Santoro, The Biggest Idiot, can be found here.

This week, Donna's co-host is Harvey, a chap who despite not being actually middle-aged has already gone very grey and who managed to fall asleep in the middle of the episode. That's before I even started my jokes! Okay he's a dog. But, yes he did heckle me with a shoe.

In the week Donna has been having weird penguin dreams, but has definitely not been foraging weird mushrooms, so goodness knows what that is about. But Goth Christmas is round the corner, so it's time to watch Halloween horror comedies, and have a lovely chat with Paul Melhuish, horror writer and author of such works as Dark Choir and the disturbingly weird and darkly funny High Cross.

This week Donna ponders what PHE have been doing since 1987. What were you doing in 1987? Me, I was watching Philip Schofield, who was trying to get us all to buy Petula Clark records. No way, Phil, that's Nan music! Now let's all sing along to "Cities of Gold"...
