Geek Fu Action Grip


I just caught up with the last six episodes of [Geek Fu Action Grip](http://www.geekfuactiongrip.com) today. I’d heard Mur Lafferty’s essays on [The Dragon Page](http://www.dragonpage.com) for a while, but I’ve been sadly remiss in tracking back to her own (http://essentialmath.com/geekfu/wp-rss2.php).

She’s smart. She’s got a great voice. She understands the virtues of *Babylon 5*. She can rant about babies and gaming in the same sentence. She’s a SF/F writer. And she’s *sarcastic*.

I have a new geek crush.

The Seanachai


[A great podcast I just discovered this morning.](http://goodwordsrightorder.com) A seanachai was an Irish bard or storyteller, and Patrick McLean has nailed the art of packing an entertaining story into a five minute (give or take) podcast. His voice is excellent, his sound production is clean and diverse, and above all, his stories are *fun.* The one about [the man who stole a semi truck full of nickels](http://goodwordsrightorder.com/index.php?blog=2&title=episode_6_a_very_slow_getaway&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1) was all it took to get me hooked.
