Shannon, Chip and Hugo Award winner Erika take a leisurely saunter with Stephen Franklin down the dark alleys of Downbelow as he goes on “Walkabout” to find himself. Along the way they explore just why the heck they couldn’t remember that this episode also has a kick-butt Shadow War subplot, discuss whether Stephen’s walkabout is cultural appropriation gone wrong, and celebrate one Patricia Tallman.
(Congratulations to our friends at Uncanny Magazine for winning the Hugo Award for Best Semiprozine! Every member of the editorial staff has appeared on this podcast.)
Consequences arrive almost immediately after the death of Kosh, as a distraught Lyta Alexander meets the new boss, not the same as the old boss. Meanwhile, Dr. Franklin goes on an appropriative journey. Please discuss “Walkabout” here, but please leave the spoilers in the other place.
Stephen Franklin begins his “Walkabout” in this episode. Where is it going? How is New Kosh like New Coke (an ancient B5 joke that Chip is even embarrassed to bring up)? Any hints to Lyta’s future in this episode? Spoil away here.
