In today's podcast, Julia Golding is in conversation with Australian writer, Michelle Diener Michelle tells her story of starting out as a historical novelist and now writing sci-fi and fantasy. They discuss her early influences and get some book recommendations and then go on to debate the place of music in our culture and the threat posed by AI. Michelle has some great tips for worldbuilding and other craft tips. Finally, they debate where in all the fantasy worlds is the best place to be a sentient droid. The answers should please some big fandoms!
