Episode 129: The queer spirit of Motherland featuring Eliot Laurence

Last updated on January 6, 2023

We interview Eliot Laurence about his series Motherland: Fort Salem, getting into what it’s like to create a show that’s lived in your mind for so long, why the show is queerer than you might think, why Raelle and Scylla (Raylla) absolutely rule, and how fandom can fuel art. Also: Octavia Butler! Mycelium! Keeping the lore alive! Season 3!
