The Imaginaries is a podcast about science fiction & fantasy (SFF), and any and all visitors, well-wishers, distant relations, and very old friends of those genres. Our spin is decidedly queer, with a heaping helping of attention for representation and own voices narratives. We’re focused on craft and we’re primarily interested in seeing where SFF is going and can go when done well. What we can’t cover in the podcast you’ll find below in our written reviews, videos, and annual awards for the very best in SFF.
