Sword & Laser podcast covers broad discussions on science fiction and fantasy book topics, and was the brainchild of Veronica Belmont and Tom Merritt. If you love SF (aka sci-fi) and fantasy tales, then this podcast will keep you abreast of the latest and biggest updates in both genres.

In this latest episode, Veronica is joined by travel fantasy writer Anthony St. Clair, author of Home Sweet Road and Martini Destiny heads off a new genre that covers the correlation of beer and travel — ‘beerpunk’ — and also shares how to conceptualize a book using only one word.

While the podcast’s genres may seem highly specialized to some, it’s actually very interesting in that it requires a certain understanding and appreciation of creative, technological, AND literary fields. And if you’re concerned that it may seem a little geeky, fret not. The show’s discussions are more lighthearted and animated than you’d expect, and it’s presented in a way that it would spark interest in even the most casual listeners and viewers. I promise you’ll enjoy this podcast; it’s a great respite from more mainstream entertainment subjects.
