Episode 150: Brown cosmic horror featuring Nadia Shammas

In our 150th episode—also our first 100% nonbinary episode *air horn* *air horn* –we talk to Nadia Shammas about their new graphic novel WHERE BLACK STARS RISE. Co-hosted by special guest host Craig Hale, this episode marks Nadia’s glorious return to the podcast where she reports back on the reception of Squire. We also get into militarism and empire, the importance of viewing your creative team as co-creators, engaging with eldritch horror, and flipping Lovecraftian horror on its head. Plus, representing therapy and mental illness! Writing in a visual medium! And more!
