Welcome, fellow book nerds, to The Once and Future Podcast! We work hard to bring you the best science fiction and fantasy news, books, comics, games, science, and pop culture, one damned episode at a time!

Author-host Anton Strout got the idea for O&FP after spending a lot of time casually chatting with fellow authors and creative types from around the nerdiverse in various bars and coffee shops at conventions. He thought, why not bring these types of conversations to fans at home? Thus, the show was born, and over the course of our 150+ episodes, Anton has welcomed New York Times bestselling authors and fan favorites to chat about their books, the art and craft of writing, the geeky things they do in their downtime, and the ins and outs of author life. There are no artificial, stilted interviews here. Just a couple authors chatting about the pursuit of their nerdy little passions.
