A: This is a tough one as being based in South Korea we feel cut off from the world of publishers and publications.

Katelyn Keating, editor in chief of CRAFT, 24 February 2019

A: The Escape Artists podcasts will always hold a special place in my heart. Escapepod, the word's most widely distributed Science Fiction podcast, originally inspired me to to start the Drabblecast. My time over there as Chief Editor for 4 years following Mur Lafferty was an honor and joy-- all of the Escape Artists podcasts have their own unique type of charisma and they're all willing to push boundaries and try new things while also paying homage to the greats of the past.
I have a lot of respect for Beneath Ceaseless Skies as well. As both the editor and main audio producer of Drabblecast, I'm a real obsessive compulsive nerd when it comes to top-notch production quality, and Scott Andrews, editor over at BCS is the same way. You can listen to any episode and immediately tell that they not only publish great fantasy-- they publish great _sounding_ fantasy.

Norm Sherman, Chief Editor of Drabblecast, 24 February 2019
