Scott Edelman is creating the Eating the Fantastic podcast

I’ve been going to science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comic book conventions since I was 15, and I’ve found that while the cons are always fun, the cons away from the cons—which take place when I wander off-site with friends for a meal—can often be more fun. In fact, my love of tracking down good food while traveling the world attending conventions has become so well known one blogger even dubbed me "science fiction’s Anthony Bourdain."

I created Eating the Fantastic to replicate in podcast form one of my favorite parts of any convention—good conversation with good friends over good food. During each episode, I share a meal with someone whose opinions I think you’ll want to hear, and we talk about science fiction, fantasy, horror, writing, comics, movies, fandom … whatever happens to come to mind.

Dozens of episodes are already live with the likes of Nalo HopkinsonFran WildeAndy DuncanAlyssa WongJeffrey Ford, and more, but there are so many amazing people out there, so many more voices I want to bring to you, that I need  your help in capturing them all. In order to make Eating the Fantastic even better, I’d like to pick up the pace, post episodes more often than biweekly, make day trips to capture writers whom I never get a chance to see on the con circuit, and maybe even upgrade to more advanced recording equipment.

Check out all the levels of support and accompanying rewards—starting at $1—which will allow you to help subsidize Eating the Fantastic. I hope you’ll join us at the table.
