Welcome to Episode 180 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers, and Fans. In this episode Mike and guest co-host Elsa Sjunneson-Henry continue our triptych of shows on the work of Mishell Baker, looking at her novel Borderline. We talk with Mishell about inspiration from gaming and other sources, Millie’s distinct character voice, sense of place, and more.
If you like what you hear, don’t forget to check back next week for our final show of the triptych as we look at some of the writing techniques used in the novel–and if you’d like access to that show, please head to our Patreon page and support us at the $5 or higher level.
