Come to the Uncanny TV Pilot Taping!!!

Space Unicorns unite! During Uncanny Magazine‘s successful Kickstarter campaign for Year 5, you made your voices heard: I want my Uncanny TV!

We welcome you to join us for our live recording of the pilot episode of Uncanny TV. Podcaster extraordinaire Matt Peters & Managing/Nonfiction Editor Michi Trota will host this variety talk show in the spirit of Uncanny Magazine: highlighting creators in SF/F working in a variety of art forms and projects, focusing on people building and nurturing their communities, particularly highlighting marginalized creators. They’ll talk about topics that can be serious, but the overall tone of the show will be to celebrate the things we enjoy and the people who make our communities good places to be in SF/F.
