Galactic Chat 34 – Rochita Loenen-Ruiz

Well here is the latest Galactic Chat which (like all my chats) I thoroughly enjoyed.  As part of the We See A Different Frontier Carnival I encourage you to listen to and to check out all the other folks posting in the Carnival (link) and to monitor the hashtag #wsadf on twitter.

You could also, you know, read We See A different Frontier (my review here).

In this episode Sean chats with Rochita Loenen-Ruiz about her reading experiences growing up in the provinces of the Philippines and the influences on Filipino Writing particularly Speculative Fiction.  They also talk about conceptions of Diversity in the genre and the where the largest misunderstandings seem to be. The finish the show talking about Rochita's story, What Really Happened at Ficandula.

Please enjoy.
