#60 – The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet by Becky Chambers (with Chelsee and Christina of The Bi Pod)

Tune in as Chelsee and Christina (The Bi Pod) collaborate with Arthur for Pride Month 2022, during which queer content will be featured throughout June. For the fourth and final episode of the month, the focus is on the The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet, the 2014 space opera debut novel by Becky Chambers. As the first entry in her Wayfarers series, it boasts quite a few merits, including (but not limited to) the Found Family trope, an extensively queer view on gender and sexuality, and detailed yet accessible worldbuilding. Along with breaking down all of this, the hosts mix up Treasure Planet with Atlantis: The Lost Empire, discuss romantic relationships between humans and A.I., and comment on Twitter toxicity.
