Episodes 14,  15,  and 16 from Notes from Coode Street are still available on Strahan’s blog, where Wolfe and Strahan discuss all things sci fi, including non-English books in the genre, classic SF “books you don’t need to read,” and other fascinating stuff. A recent 2010 podcast roundup by Jonathan McCalmont said Wolfe and Strahan’s podcasts “are a real ray of sunlight . . .They are fun, they are engaged and they manage to walk a fine line between talking about new books, old books, ideas and issues affecting the field of science fiction . . . Anyone with an interest in science fiction should find it intensely rewarding.”
