Index and links for episode 2 of New York State of Mensa

I’m the guest on episode 2 of “New York State of Mensa,” the podcast of Greater New York Mensa, hosted by Sara London and Carmen Alexander. In the episode, we talk about science fiction, and I realized that I throw around a lot of names and titles, so I thought it’d be nice to actually list them here for those who might be interested.

Note, I wasn’t intentionally slighting anyone or any work by not mentioning them: this was an unprepared conversation, so those I mention were the names that came to mind first. And specifically, in the discussion of Mensans who write science fiction, I apologize for not being able to come up with names in the moment. Also, I’m happy to add more to this list when I remember them (or when you contact me and say “Hey, fool, you forgot to mention me!”).
