About Alzabo Soup

Alzabo Soup is a podcast where we (Phil and Metz) do deep readings of high quality speculative fiction with a focus on the author Gene Wolfe.  It's like listening to a book club that only has two people in it (Metz believes that this is actually a selling point)!  We release a one-hour-ish podcast every week as we go through books chapter-by-chapter.  We research the obscure parts of the work, and try to ponder the puzzles that the authors leave for us.  Our current project is The Citadel of the Autarch, the last of the four books in The Book of the New Sun by Gene Wolfe. We hope to work our way through all four books and it's coda, The Urth of the New Sun, over the next 18 months.

Your support helps us offset the cost of making and hosting the podcast, as well as helping us perpetuate the illusion that we can make money by doing the things we love.
